I'm not saying Bouillon's incompetent because he's short. The same way I don't have a problem with DD or Gionta, because theyre good players.

But what we needed on the back is diversity. The same way they've gone out and got some bigger, tougher, meaner forwards. The defence doesn't have one player in that mold and hasn't since Komisarek went AWOL and OByrne failed to develop.

The defence needs an intimidating presence I think. Intimidating being the key word, someone to push back when a forward is in Price's face. That defence would look a whole lot better with a 6'5 nasty lunatic on the bottom pair.
