I wouldn't say it's completely overrated, but you do have a point. Size in the "new" NHL is way less important compared to pre-lockout.

Dave also has a point, our organization has always lacked size. But it's not like we're not doing anything about it and just continue to draft small forwards. Wilson, Beck, Budish, Watson, Geoffrion, etc. are all skilled guys with size.

However, when you bulk up on "size guys" on the roster, you will start to lack speed and quickness. And right now, our system depends more on speed and transition then it does size and toughness.

We just need to get lucky and land a big, quick, skilled, guy like that freak Kopitar. I love that guy
