People say he's gritty because compared to our other defencemen he actually goes out there and throws body checks. Our other defencemen just rub out the forwards as they come down whereas Wiz actually will take them out with a hit.
But your right, he does lack the size. Imagine if Hamrlik and Gill took the initiative and threw hits like Wiz. Spacek does once in a while and has the size but not nearly enough.
Thats why we are soft on d, we lack guys that punish their forwards, all our guys are cuddly shut down dmen.
