I totally agree. UFAs can be prohibitively expensive. And you can't trade your way out of this. Other teams have gotten with the program -- they're not going to take your diminutive forward who plays a perimeter game and hand you a skilled power forward.

I've yet to hear a GM say "we need to get smaller and less physical next year". And yet, the Habs seem to have become an unintended byproduct of that.

Unless the playing surface is enlarged, skilled, big-bodied players will continue to be at a premium.
