Take a look at our top 6.

Gomez -5'11
Cammalleri 5'9
Plekanec 5'11
A. Kostitsyn - 6.0
S. Kostitsyn 6'0
Laps 6'2.

Gio comes back and our top 6 is even smaller.
What does the size of the top 6 have to do with anything?

Teams that are hard to play against play a different style than our "trap and counter" style, it has nothing to do with having mosters in the top 6. Marleau Thornton and Healtley average 220-225lbs and they are no harder to play against than our guys.

what makes a team hard to play against is they play an agressive style game, the Habs play a passive game like New Jersey does. That's why it was a snorefest last night.
