If guys like Gallagher and Collberg drop down in the draft because of size issues you take them. You can trade for toughness but yes I agree if you have two players comparable in talent and one is physical and bigger definitely grab him. Montreal has not been great at getting that type of player through the years. They tried that in the 90s and failed hard at it. Only players they ever got who fit that bill that I remember are Corson, Lemiuex, LeClair(prematurely traded), McPhee.

They have had other big forwards as well like a Stevenson but that was a wasted first round pick if you consider his talent level. If you get a Stevenson in the 4th round then it's a good pick for bottom 6 tough wingers.
