Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with drafting size, but you do not pass up on someone who is clearly the best player available just because he's a little short. Players like that can excel with the way the game is called now.

As someone else pointed out, Rodin is fairly average sized. What's the point in averaging the height of our first 2 picks when the first guy we picked is 5'8? Of course the average will be a little low. Do you have a problem with the Schroeder pick, though? Who do you think we should've taken ahead of him? Because I've heard a lot of "experts" say this kid was a steal where we got him.
Where was Kane the rest of the series? The Canucks got collectively beat as a team by being Physically dominated and worn down by a bigger..more physical Hawks team.

In fact you could make a strong argument that these were the Hawk players who actually did kill us.....

Take a good hard look at the average size of that group!!!
