Why? Size as center has little impact on winning hockey games.

Detroit's top 2 centers are 5'11" and 193 and 197lbs
Rangers top 2 are both 6', 182 and 195lbs
Boston's top 2 guys are 6'1" and 5'11 and 194 and 178lbs

Those are the top 3 teams in the NHL with Boston also winning the cup last year.

Instead of worrying about Plekanec we should get him a high end skill winger, the role Cammy was supposed to play.
