That doesn't make him fragile.
Plus the Habs are an average sized team. Taking a potential top 5 pick(assuming Drouin MacKinnon Barkov etc) based on size is as ridiculous as it gets. If you can get a star or superstar you take him at any size and build a team around him.
Drouin is actually heavier than Mackinnon by about 5 lbs and they have a half inch to an inch difference in height...again ridiculous. We should base our drafts on the Lightning's 2000-2005 draft philosophy of size first...
Boston won with goaltending more than anything else. A bunch of their best players were average to small in those playoffs...Bergeron Krejci Marchand Recchi.
LA won with strong goaltending, mobile defense and a deep group of forwards. They did have some size up front but also some smaller guys that produced.
