Physicality can be a very useful tool when used well (see: Cole, Erik), but in and of itself it is not a goal and does not make a player better. Blunden is great at making hits that have no impact on the play because the puck is long gone. He's otherwise an AHL caliber player.

Bringing something "different" does not have inherent value and does not equate to "better".

This, OTOH, is pretty much useless except as fan entertainment.
