I'm not sure about that. McCabe didn't exactly fall off the hair salon wagon. He was tough in his own right, and at about 6'1" or 6'2" wasn't tiny by any means either. Anyway that was sort of my "wow" moment with Chara. You watch the clip and it wasn't as if McCabe cut him under the chin or anything, it was just that Chara was irritated and annoyed with him and had enough. Sort of scared you that he could tick like that.

I liken a guy like Chara to Lennox Lewis. Lewis was 6'5" and had a long reach. He was bigger than most anyone he fought and that was part and parcel to how he won fights. Being strong and having a great reach is part of what I consider a great fighter in the NHL.
