He doesn't lack heart so to speak, he doesn't need to answer the bell, nor does Giroux, The Flyers have punching bags on the 4th line, Nick Cousins will not be one of them, he'll be a guy who agitates the other team to the point of craziness, will he have to fight at some point, sure, but he's going to suck a lot of players off their game and a lot of teams are going to find that out really fast. Love him as a player and LOVE he's flying under the radar.
You guys are setting yourselves up for disappointment when you compare him to Marchand, other than being a pest & small in statue that's about where the line draws when comparing the two.

Marchand's skating is very good, he plays physical despite his size & plays his own zone well. Cousins skating is considered average at best, he shy's away from physical contact & his defense is considered poor.
