In the NHL... yes quite frankly. Maybe not at the extreme of 220... but still.

Its the difference between guys like JVR, Jeff Carter and say James Neal (big guys with skill), vs. players like Clowe, Malone, Simmonds and Lucic.

The latter players are guys who Biggs style translates to. He's not going to be a 35-40 goal scorer who uses his feet and hands while driving to the net.

He's gonna be a guy who crashes the net, bothers opposing goalies, goes to the "dirty" areas and scores "dirty" goals and punishes dmen on the forecheck. Sure he man top out at 25 goals a year, but is a good complement to finesse players.
