Partly true, but Carbonneau wasn't exactly a 6'4 gorilla. He was as smooth a skater as there was in the league at the time and was about as good a player as I've seen at being in position and recovering on the defensive side of the puck. Plus, he added significant offence.

I remember watching playoff games where my heart rate slowed right down with him on the ice because you knew his line wasn't getting scored on. And to have that, plus the counter-attack ability to pop 50-60 points? Amazing.
