Gionta is the perfect example of why the "smurf" comments are nonsense, him and DD are the only real undersized players on this team and Gionta's size might have limited him to some degree, but he still has managed to become a good, physical two way player. Really Gomez doesn't have an excuse to have another season like that with Gionta and Pacioretty on his line.

Anyway it's interesting how the stats support a lot of what I thought coming into this season, I hope these numbers get out as it's more solid evidence than merely looking at points or some arbitrary attempt to measure "toughness" on hits.
