As for the size vs skill angle, I agree as well. I certainly hope we don't only look to guys with size at the expense of skill.

But I wouldn't put a guy like Watson in the purely size over skill category. He's a guy I would want (and obviously Preds fans do as well), because he looks like the kind of player how might be able to bring both.
Don't get me wrong Huffer, I really like Watson. He works hard, plays with passion and grit, and can still put the puck in the net. Maybe a 2 for 3 swap could workout?

Enstrom + Klingberg + pick (2013 3rd)


Wilson + Watson + Blum

There might be some tweaks, but overall I like the deal.
