In fairness though, the Hawks aren't the Pens. The term soft gets thrown around quite regularly, but the Pens team is a group of soft players. I don't see a "soft" player on the Blackhawks. They're all willing to grind it out and take a pounding in order to win. Are there some bigger forwards on the Hawks? Yeah, but the more prominent players are smaller in stature.
