I agree with you to a point, but when you get to the end of the draft, I think it is easier to pick guys with size. In most cases you can develop a skill guys that you get early in the draft, but the hopes of a late rounder is kind of small, and you can't teach size, so you pick kids who already have NHL size bodies and hope they pan out to be depth players.
