When I was coaching youth hockey I used to say that blowing someone up at center ice was nice but the most physical players, the ones who ground down the opponents mentally were the ones who went into the corner for pucks and came out with it more often than not. "Physicality" sounds like a simple one dimensional word but it is more complicated than that.

Same is true in soccer. Cheap shot hammering someone is not physical it is stupid. Winning 50/50 balls at 85% is being physical.
