I agree that our grinding game would be more effective with more size. Also, more youth, as some of our best energy grinders are starting to have some mileage on the odometer, namely Cooke, Adams, Kunitz and Dupuis.
And it's not like we need a whole team of giants - we just need better balance. As it stands, the only regular forwards we have over 6'1" are Geno, Sutter, Neal, and Tangradi.

I'd like to see the likes of TK and Adams replaced by big guys in the forward ranks. Neither play an essential role at this point.
