Maybe it's been a while, but I don't recall Stevens being a "bull in a china shop." He played tough, and would finish a guy if he had a chance, but he wasn't like a Dustin Brown who will go head hunting. A lot of Artie's physical dimension was just because he was huge - 6'3, and probably around 235 in his heyday. He played how a winger had to back in the day...he'd take a beating in front, but he'd also give one.
He was definitely more physical, and more willing to mix it up than Neal seems to be, but he wasn't a Lucic either. Probably a combo of those two was Artie. With that being said, Artie was also not a fighter. He'd only fight a few times a year, where Lucic would fight every single game if he had a willing participant.
