I get that Hamilton isn't Chara but still in a one on one battle vs DD who do you think is going to win?

I'm just saying we could pay a little more attention to size that's all.
Oh, yeah. I agree that we need to address the size issue. Bouillon was a swell guy and still is, but signing him and armstrong were both pretty big mistakes. Those spots could have been taken by bigger, stronger guys who served more of a defined purpose.

Next time, Bergevin, listen to your pro scouts on who to go out and sign, and not the coach who hasn't been behind a bench in a few years.
