Size is very important.

Just watch Vancouver. The Sedin's start in the offensive zone all the time - it's because that gives them the best chance to score goals, which is what they do best.
Henrik Sedin has 112, 94, and 81 points in the last three seasons. 112 and 94 points are worth building around. 81 points might be worth building around. 62 points? Not worth building around.

Plekanec has superior offensive skills, and soon Galchenyuk will be better than both of them.
