So what if it was set. If there is a better option, you make adjustments.

And the Rangers aren't set defensively? They're tied for second in goals against? The Flames were third in goals against last season.

So Malhotra failed becasue of lack of size? He was about 6'2, 200.

You are ignoring the fact that the game is faster, the players bigger, stronger and smarter. If you're concern is just him gettting hurt, you don't understand what my point is.
