As you can see, Isles fans prefer size, but to me...I think that want and need for size is more of how we have been treated as a team (gets pushed around) and not by legitimate reasons for size. We have gone without size for so long, we deem it necessary to have the whole team the size of ogres.
I like size and we definitely need size, but we need to realize that a winning team consists of all different types of players. The gritty, finesse, defensive, fast, passer etc etc. I personally think Hickey is not as sound as Strait, but also not so green as a new player (18-20) at this level. Give him another year of seasoning and I think he can be a regular for almost any team.
Take the responses with a grain of salt though. Just a week ago, people were all for Hickey and wanted Finley gone pronto. Finley's game is much more simple than Hickey's, but it seems like Finley fine tuned his awkwardness and plays the simple game not so bad.
