I don't think that if you would replace him with Karlsson or Letang you'd get the same results. Obviously, I picked the softiest of the softies for the sake of my argument.
Ah, no. That was my mistake. I used Norris contender and forgot that it can be applied to swiss-cheese defensmen who put up lots of points lately.

In the end I think the lesson was just that his size in itself is not what makes chara good, but it's one of the factors that contribute to just how effective he is. (especially in the dead puck era playoffs).
