for me, at this level the WHEELS are the most important trait. I dont care about a players height or weight per se, as long as they are shifty, gritty, and extremely fast. That is Trocheck, Gaudreau, and Grimaldi to a T. McColgan isnt that fast, but the kid is a lot grittier then people give credit for..
this tournament is so free flowing and wide open that if you can out skate the enemy, you have a great chance at winning. ofcourse I love to add big power wingers and defensemen, but as funny as it sounds, size is not a big deal for the WJC..
