The only way it happens is if we get a young player like Kuznetsov from a team like Washington that needs a 2nd line centerman and is in the playoff picture.
Last time I checked, we had some of the biggest wingers in the league. Cole, Pacioretty, Bourque, Kostitsyn, (Eller when he plays wing)... I think we can lay this "wingers with size" dilemma to rest, we need a skilled winger to complete the Top 6, doesn't need to be big. I think Justin Williams would be great alongside Bourque as our 2nd line wingers.
