Who cares though, let other teams pay a premium for size, the Habs can just keep picking talent.
Never understood that concept. LA won because of their crazy depth and Quick, not because of size. Looking at their top-6, their most physical players actually aren't that tall. Richards and Brown are the most physical scoring forwards and they're 5'11" and 6'0" respectively. Its a lot easier to find guys like Greene, Stoll and King through Trades and Free Agency than it is to find guys like Kopitar, Doughty and Quick.
