It may be a sterotype, but there is truth in it. For every Pronger, who has natural meanness, there are countless guys who are big and strong but lack that edge. It's funny how much grief Coburn gets on here, but we all really like his game when he gets ticked and starts hammering guys. It just doesn't come naturally to him unless provoked, usually by Penguin.
Why was Hatcher so much better than the similarly skilled Rathje? Whack. That's why. Chara has always been a great player, but he went to another level when he started hammering more guys, being meaner.
I really liked seeing the internal process of how these guys, who have seen all the players so much, came to a consensus that Morin had the most upside of the players in the range, along with some innate meanness, so he was their guy.
