Obviously they can both do some PKing.
I think that may be where some of the confusion lies. He isn't bad on defense at all. Etem and Wagner are the first guys out on penalty kills, which says a lot for rookies. I don't know where you got the idea that he isn't physical. He isn't as physical as Smith-Pelly, but it's not like he doesn't hit.
