Maybe it's just me, but size really ends up hurting in the end. If you take a look at career longevity, the bigger players usually end up with much shorter careers. The smaller players usually end up with longer careers. On top of it, the larger players seem to be sucking wind by the end of the play offs where as with smaller players, the longer it goes, the better it is for them simply because they carry less weight and seem to be conditioned better for endurance.

Now, that isn't to say that I don't understand the importance of having size in the lineup. Size is needed. However, you have to have skill to go along with the size and a guy like Sestito has shown very little in the skill department at the NHL level. Sestito needs to decide this summer if he's going to be a player or if he's content being a scrub and a scratch. It's entirely up to him.
