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 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 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.
