Lucic is strong but I don't know if you can tell by his muscles, they're nothing crazy. He was prob 20ish here.
Lucic braced himself last second. Habs fans are giving him a little too much credit to think he can think and position his body that fast lol. Same way he braced himself from the same hit 2 Habs games ago from Subban lol.
Anyone else recall the Jerry Dee bit for The Score that took place in the weight room? To get fired up for a lift contest Jerry had a bag of doritos and a pepsi, was worth a laugh, but more impressive was PK, that guy looked like a monster
Despite the kind of bodies other guyshave, I'm not sure guys like Lucic and Brind'Amour can be serious answers over Chara.
Unless we're talking strength compared to size, Chara is absolutely the strongest guy. He is strong for his size and he's completely massive. Maybe you could counter him with a guy whose only purpose was strength, like Ivanans or something. But Chara's one of main strengths... is his strength. That's one of his best tools in playing defense. So it's hard to say that a guy who's nearly a foot shorter than him and fifty or sixty pounts lighter is outright stronger.
Thought this would help. I am a powerlifter myself, so these numbers aren't jaw-dropping. Surprised a thick bodied Raffi Torres can only dead lift 365lbs. Click on the player to see their weight room, track, and ice training numbers. http://www.hockeyot.com/our-athletes/pro/
