Exactly and on top of that, the Kings size has to be at least a bit intimidating to some of the smaller teams with goons to compensate. The Kings have really big players at every position. That means when another team tries to goon it up, the Kings have to size to start pushing them back and players like you mentioned (add in Greene and Fraser) who are willing to fight if necessary. There are also players like Brown and Richards who can throw heavy hits. I certainly don't think the Kings are the scariest team in the league by any stretch but I think they showed in last year's playoffs that they will not be pushed around and they use their size effectively.
