The Wings also had Cleary, Draper, Maltby, McCarty, Helm, and Drake upfront, and Franzen, Holmstrom, and Samuelsson were tough players. Franzen and Holmstrom, in particular, did a lot of dirty work in front of the net and on the boards. On defence, they had Kronwall, Lebda, Chelios, and Lilja.
The Penguins had Kunitz, Dupuis, Fedotenko, Talbot, Kennedy, Guerin, Adams, Orpik, Scuderi, Gill, and Eaton.
On the Flames, who's gritty? Glencross, Jackman, Begin, and Sarich. You could possibly add Giordano. That's it.
Butler, Widemen are as gritty as some of the players you listed as is Comeau and Stempniak isn't far behind guys like Kennedy. And since when was Lebda gritty? If that is gritty then so is Sven
