The fact that they're better than Staubitz doesn't mean that they can play hockey. Staubitz is a strong contender for "worst player in the NHL".

In general, fighters who can play hockey are rare, because players who can play hockey are more valuable playing hockey than fighting. There are very few exceptions, and generally, these exceptions are players who'd be better-served not going to the penalty box for five minutes on a regular basis. Which I guess doesn't make them exceptions, seeing as they are also more valuable playing hockey than fighting...

In a way, there's no such thing as "fighters who play hockey"; there are "hockey players who fight".
