-Adam McQuaid is listed at 197 lbs.

-Tomas Kaberle is listed at 214 lbs.

-Zac Rinaldo had 232 pims last year. He's listed at 169.

- Cal Clutterbuck is 5'11. He has 947 hits the past 3 years.

-All 5'8 of Chris Bourque is 4th on the Bruins in hits with 10(I'm as confused as everyone else)

Stats are subjective yes, and you can pretty much manipulate them to bolster any argument you want to make. However, The Bruins Big and Bad reputation does not come from their size. It's comes from their style of play, and their take no **** attitude.
Yup. You can't teach size, but you can't teach heart either. And I'll take heart every time.
