Hence the whole "Nazim we want you to play wing" - "Nazim we want you to be a defensive player" - Nazim we want you to put on some size"

Kadri+Kessel+Grabo are simply too small to all be in your Top6. Especially given the fact that outside of Kulemin we dont' have any True size/strength to play with them.

Small Top6
Small down the Middle

= Not Competitive.
Again, im saying Grabo isnt small, he plays big, so having him in your top 6 isnt forming a size problem, on his W will be one of JVR and Kulemin. There would be no lack of size on a line of

JVR/Kulemin - Grabovski - Kadri

None are soft, none shy away from contact or dirty areas, all have high offensive potential...
