lol, as soon as the "beast" starts taking some penalties for his aggressive play our loud mouth pacifist coach will bench him. He'll be playing like Malik in no time.
While I would agree that AA was not physical in the sense that he did not normally initiate contact, he did define the term "being stiff to play against" He's a big framed kid that took alot of hits and did not give up the puck easily. He's not soft by any stretch of the imagination, but he was also not the initiating kind of player either.
