Seriously though....we need size on this club so we should continue to draft players in the mold.
At the same time do you want to pass up another Giroux for another Fischer?
I know that all small players are not necessarily more skilled than all big players, but as much as I'd like a bit more size in the top 6 down the road, at the end of the day it's skill first and foremost that wins games.
For all the talk of the big bad Bruins, Cammalleri put up 10 points on them in 7 games...last night St.Louis had a huge part in beating them.
When all is said and done we need 3-4 bigger guys out of this draft, ideally in round 1 we get a 6'2"(or bigger) skill player...but I won't be disapointed if we get Grimaldi or Rattie.
