How about

Shanahan 52 goals 211 PIM

K Stevens 54 goals 254 PIM

G Roberts 53 goals 207 PIM

Does it make what Tkachuk did more impressive or still a mistake prone goon?
I don't think physical play has anything to do with it. Someone like Theo Fleury managed to be fairly productive without having extremely high PIM totals (although he got up there a couple of times). Wendel Clark was over 250 his first two years, then never over 200 again (in fact, only over 150 once more). In Cam Neely's three 50-goal seasons, his PIM totals were 117, 98, and 54. Jeremy Roenick's career high was 130.
