Size is an issue. Not so much with an individual player because we all can trot out examples of players that aren't that big that can fully function in this league. But for us it is greatly magnified because we are already small and already very soft. Drafting another small gifted player I think becomes a much bigger issue on our team than most other teams.
I think we are at the point that size has become a factor. I'd go as far to say that I'd be more than willing to draft a player that may be rated slightly lower just because he brings NHL size at a position we most need it. A big two way centre has to have a bullseye on it in this draft. He may not be the best player available but he would probably end up being more valuable to us. And at this point we should be drafting the best player for OUR team.
