The thing is, I feel people are focusing on Desharnais as a symbol of the size problem. I understand and agree with the fact that we must get bigger and grittier, in our top-6 and elsewhere. But for me the pressing need is to replace Ryder and eventually Gionta (one year left on his contract!) with bigger and better players, because we need those players to play those big minutes. Desharnais is just luxury. We can afford his secondary scoring for a while, but we can't afford not replacing vets that are leaving. And we don't have the prospect forward depth to replace them comfortably from within.

The good news is that with all these picks, we should be able to replenish our farm pretty well.
