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.
Exactly, bu then again Gill is too slow to hit, if he would be going for more hits he would always be out of position and it could be ugly. Hamrlik was pretty physical in his first two seasons with us I think the age is starting to slow him down alot and especially on this area.

We should sign guys like Brewer, O'brien, Ericsson, Bieksa, Alberts, Vandermeer, Pardy to at least bring some nastyness on the blueline.

Markov(1 year -5,5)-Gorges(3 years -2,8)
Ericsson(3 years -2,1)-Subban( 875 000)
O'brien(2 years -1,5)-Wisniewski (4 years -4,25)
Weber(2 years 1,1 )

Total : 18,125 millions - it's pretty cheap considering it would be a quality defensive corp.

Could be a very nice mobile gritty physical Dcorp with alot of puck moving abilities and offensive output. And it would way younger.
