The thought astounds one, that it takes two talented players for one big guy, but don't ever draft one that could be better. The really good big guys don't get traded and certainly go ahead and send Pacioretty and a couple of good prospects to get one.
Who am I to talk this way, obviously it's much better to watch your players get beaten any given game than draft someone that can stop the bleeding.
we didn't draft most of our team, so it's the direction the gm went to. I'm sure the image is changing, slowly, and the habs will get tougher but I don't hold a lot of value in picking guys for their size.
yes, I don't like watching our players get 'beaten' 5 games a year but at the same time, I enjoy finishing 2nd in the east. the playoffs happened because of injury, poor goaltending, and a goalie at the other end playing fantastic. were we perfect? no. not at all, but a big tough guy wasn't going to change the outcome of the games.
