I might be wrong.
He's intimidating because he's difficult to get around (his size, wingspan) and he has that thunderous shot. However, he isn't the hardest body checker. A few Habs have figured out that they should go right at him when he has the puck in his own end. If what I say isn't correct, then provide a better explanation for how the Habs have managed to be competitive with the Bruins despite having the inferior team overall.
