No, they really aren't. The physical aspect? Sure, I'll grant that Perry and Getzlaf seem to be more effective players when they engage physically. Ryan? Not so much. He plays much smaller than he is. As for fighting? No. They don't fight very often, and they shouldn't. You don't want your best players in the box for 5 minutes.
That also doesn't make the entire team better when they are physical and/or fighting. In no way does one equate to the other. They might be three of the core players on the team, but they aren't the entire team. Players like Visnovsky, Fowler, Sbisa, Selanne, Koivu, Blake, and so on... also make up the team. That isn't a line-up that is going to intimidate teams physically, and when they beat you on the scoreboard it isn't going to be because they attempt to do so on the ice. It's going to be because they are talented hockey players.
