We've seen Fleury-like players and Penner-like players in the NHL. Size is far secondary to their heart and desire on the ice.
Yes, for the most part I agree. Size can be overrated, and drive is worth more than size.


But, consider the centre in Edmonton matching up with the Thortons, Keslers, Getzlafs, Kopitars of the West? In that situation, being a bigger defensive guy is more valuable. People will point to Datsyuk, but he is an anomaly/freak.
