After seeing all of the Erixon posts I was going to write the exact same thing. Say what you will about his stature, but he sees the ice very well, IMO. Smart hockey player who uses solid positioning and his hockey intelligence to play defense.

Even if he doesn't bulk up, I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the roster opening night. While size is useful for all players, I don't feel it is an absolute necessity for him to start playing in the NHL considering his style of play.
