I get that we want physicality, in a way that basically helps us score or prevent goals... make space for our skill forwards in the offensive zone, dig pucks out of the corners better, set up shop in front of the goalie, etc... that gives us goals. Don't let people stand on Price's toes, knock opponents around in front of our net, win puck battles in our corners, make opponents more leery about going into our corners or crossing our blueline... prevent some goals.

But I don't know what prevents Chara from jumping Emelin, or that we'd even really want to prevent that.
