he's a powerforward but I don't think pims is a good indicator of a powerforward (look at rick nash)

Nash might be the exception, rather then the rule.

...and his defensive game has improved dramatically. He manages to cancel out goals in games that he doesn't even play in.

No, he really shouldn't. He does not handle heavyweights well at all. Orr used his nose as target practice.

He definitely is a powerforward and a good one at that. so don't take this the wrong way but why can't a Premier Power Forward have a modest PIM. 2 minutes here and there for goaltender interference / other penalties.

But 100+ just screams out "Hey look, I get into brawls and get 10 minute misconducts"

How do PIMs equal power? How can a guy be powerful from the penalty box?

One example of a fight and Lucic can't handle heavyweights? No one is going to win them all.

Most of Lucic PIM are from weak calls though.

Setting the tone by pummelling the no-skill plugs of the other team like he did to Carkner, Gaustad and Sestito earlier this season.

He handles them very well. Orr is just a goon and a tough one at that. Nobody is saying that Lucic is the best fighter in the NHL. But he's tough with skills. A rare breed.

The definition of a traditional PF includes fights. 5 minute majors bring up PIM totals very quickly.

Cause we want our best player fighting "no-skill plugs"? Uhhh

Im not arguing that Lucic isnt the man, but I dont think that is the best example of how his PIM's are useful.

The Gaustad fight is the exception

You're right. It's not.

I still don't know why PIM is a "good" stat. Taking penalties is a bad thing. Congrats on the 20 goal season though, that's always a nice land mark to hit.

Should be more PIM's than that for his constant goalie rushing.

Colton Orr though fits the definition of enforcer only; I like Lucic's style of play, although he is on the Bruins.
