We may well have to live without size down the middle. But it's not fine. It's going to be a big issue lots of people around here are probably likely to ignore, because it's going to be too inconvenient to realize.
What size down the middle has Detroit had? Its not the size necessarily, its guys playing the right way and filling the right roles. Schenn is certainly big enough, but can he win faceoffs and shut someone down?

I am more concerned about the role than the size....but if we can get the size too, I am certainly going to be happy about that. The only one out there is Arnott.
