Its one of the reason GM Chiarelli offered more $$ and chose to keep Lucic and preferred to deal Kessel instead when he needed to decide which player had more value to his team and occupy cap space.

He understood the importance of that aspect of grit that extends beyond just goals scored and was a key to building a winning championship team.
