Rachunek - Soft and never hits anybody

Throwin the fact that Tyutin doesn't nearly play physical enough and you can see one of the major problems on this team.

It's also not hard to see when the team added a tougher player in Avery who actually had skill, they started playing better.

Who says a tall player has to be a bad ass? Where does it say that? Ever hear of the term gentle giant? Malik has NEVER used his body like that. Its not in hisnature. Don't confuse that with him being from Europe.
