He's not afraid to give somebody a hard time after the whistle, but
sort of physicality really isn't part of his repertoire right now - though it sounds like he wants to incorporate it.
Rowdy few if any offensive defenseman are as mean and physical as Letang. I think what people who have watched Pouliot play this year are saying is that he does have a physical game, one that is developing and that he is nothing like the timid-leaning-toward-soft GoGo, other than the slick passing and skating that is.
