I think the size thing is a bit overblown.
Montreal, although it lacks size, has guys in that lineup that more than make up for in toughness. Montreal when 180 with simple additions, and philosophy.

Getting spark plugs in the lineup like Prust and Gallagher made the difference for Montreal from last season to this season to be honest; with Price getting his game back on track and a Norris type coming out party for PK.

When I say get bigger, I think what I truly mean is get tougher, get harder to play against. Calgary's been recently doing a good job at finishing checks and making life hard on people on the fore/back check. I think this is an area that needs major improvement going into next season. Getting guys like Reinhart in the lineup, make finishing and creating havoc contagious down the lineup.
