Don't you think Reid's size is an issue for the long run? I agree Umberger may be the guy in the future - but he's only playing Nintendo hockey right now. I know it is bogus to expect the perfect guy at every slot, but centre worries me if we see injuries.
Mike Recci was the player I prayed Burke might rent at the deadline last year and still think his type of hard-nosed centre is what we need. More good Canadian boys if we can afford them!
