That obsession for size is ridiculous. That remind me when the Habs used almost all their 1st rounders on talentless big guys in the 90's. In fact the only good first rounder have been Saku Koivu... the only small one.

On the main topic; Timmins have quite a good record so far!
Timmins is the man, I would keep him without a doubt. Love the job he's done so far.

But in 2006, yes I would have. We can all play the hindsight is 20/20 game. But in 2006 our main need was a BIG talented centreman. Berglund was rated about equal to Giroux by many scouts. Had I been the one to have final say, I would have picked Berglund over Giroux with the thought that he would fit better for our needs.
