I think a lot of people get mesmerized by the whole physicality aspect of a player.

Well, that's not fair, they get mesmerized by any exciting component of a player's game. Subban rushing the puck up the ice is what sticks in most fans' heads, and it's the #1 reason most fans around the league still see him as an offensive defenseman who 'gambles' a lot. It's still not true. Subban's excellent body and stick work in the corner generally helps the team keep pucks out of the net way more than his monster hit, but it's the part of his game that is recognized least, which is sad.

Kane is more physical, gritty etc. than Maxpac, but if that grittiness doesn't produce more goals, and thus more wins, what's the point?
