None of them are physically dominant like a Bertuzzi or Jovanski. I'd say Walker is the closest to a consistent physical presence, but he's way too small to be physically dominant. Hartnell makes hard hits ON HIMSELF. Hall doesn't hit, he bumps. Tootoo spends all game trying to land a big hit. It works every 1 in 50 times. The other 49 times are not successful. In a lot of his hits, he gets the worst of the impact. All three are developing physical players in the NHL. They haven't learned to hit with consistentcy and effectiveness. They certainly aren't physically dominant at this point.
