They're terrible. Even allowing that there is such a role as "depth and being a roleplayer" rather than being what we call players who aren't good enough to be regulars... There are better players out there who could do the same job better -- well, in Staubitz case, he really has a job that's more for entertainment than to help win, but "useless goon" isn't a role that's hard to fill well.

Agreed, but it has nothing to do with "physicality" and everything to do with these guys being miles and miles ahead of Nokelainen (or Blunden or Staubitz) as hockey players.
