Boychuck is good at open ice hits that while rare are always memorable. Sieds is solid not a huge hitter, but can throw his weight around. Thornton does try hard, but he is a step behind and will often run into the boards. Chara will occasionally thow a big hit, but most of the time its more of a push.
The best pure hitter on this team is Lucic no doubt. I cannot comprehend how anyone can think differently. Not only does he throw the most hits, he throws the biggest hits, and the hardest hits. Watch how many Dmen go out of their way, and often make a bad play to avoid a Lucic hit. You cannot say that about anyone else on this team.
