this would actually be a really good poll question
Actually, Steckel can be physical. With the Leafs last season he registered 171 hits. Almost 2 hits a game. Mean while in Anaheim in his 21 games this season he had 30.

2010-2011 18 games with New Jersey he had 16.
2010-2011 57 games 88 hits with the Capitals.

He can be physical. just if he wants to.

I'd take him. Offensively he and Halpern, at worse, will do the same. Steckel is 6'6 compared to Halpern's 5'11 frame.

They're both good on the pk and faceoffs. One can be hard to push off the puck and be physical while the other stops being physical when he comes here. Hell, Steckel might do the same.

Personally, if our pp continues to struggle because of our ***** players who refuse to go to the front of the net we can try and tell Steckel to go do it.
