The Kings prefer physical lunch pail type of players, while The Wild prefer speedy players.
If that's correct and he's really 6'2"...and speedy...then it could have been a mistake to let him go.
And I'm pretty sure Cammy is no lunch pail type. Nor are Lehoux and Pushkarov. Yeah, DT trends to those types but it's not like Risebrough and Lemaire get a bunch of nancy boys. Brunette and Dowd epitomized what they were doing there and I think those guys actually LOST their wheels in about 1998, maybe 1993 in Brunette's case...damn near every player there is a lunch pail type. I don't pretend to know their prospects that well but they've sure got alot of size according to the 03-04 McKeen's...only one out of five forwards shorter than 6'2" in their top prospects so if they've got that kind of size AND speed, lookout!
