Big, but surprisingly soft in his time with Pittsburgh. Not sure if the numbers (if there are numbers, I'm guessing not) back that up...but he was a big guy, just didn't really get involved physically that much it seemed...like Ryan Whitney in that sense...Hatcher could shoot though, he'd jump into the play and fire...didn't score 30 goals in a season once or something ridiculous?

Of course, he was a Pen much later in his career...so maybe he was more physically inclined back in the day. Pens traded Zubov for him (which Dallas agreed to instantly and eagerly) because - as the story goes - Lemieux didn't like how much Zubov would carry the puck.
