I think people need to understand this. Apart from Gionta ALL our top 9 wingers are big guys and somewhat physical. Apart from DD all our centers are 5'11 or higher. We aren't particularly 'small' anymore. Granted, not intimidating but not small. Not getting Roy has more to do with the fact he's NOT a significant upgrade rather than him being undersized. I mean, Zetterberg is 5'11 and I'd take him. Really very little to do with size and more to do with the fact he's not what we're looking for.
