I think this size thing, is a little overblown around here. Yeah, it wouldn't hurt to have some more size, but it's not 100% necessary. Giroux and Briere are the top two centers on Philly and neither are 6'0. The best thing Burmi and Little could do was strengthen their lower body more. More so Burmi though. He has the potential to be a first line player and he'll need to be a stronger skater. He obviously has the skating ability already. Just need to get stronger.
