Look around the league you'll find suprisingly few top six centermen are significantly bigger than Pleks. Most are 5'10" to 6'1" and 180-205 llbs. And its isn't common for many teams to have two guys significantly bigger than average. For example, nobody in the Habs new division 8 team divison (DET, BOS, TOR, BUF, OTT, FLR, TB) does. The only particularly large top centers in those teams is Spezza and Lecavilier. At center a good fraction of the 6'0", 6'1" guys are below 195 llbs.

Habs03 has the right idea. The main place the Habs can actually improve is getting better defensive D men who can help the goaltending out. Which is one place you can add size and really make a difference. Hence my unrelenting hostility to having Boullion on the team.
We're adding Tinordi so that's one piece. If we add a strong veteran shutdown guy I'll be a lot happier. Not only do we play on the perimeter on offense, we do it on D as well. Nobody is afraid to stand in front of our crease because nobody will do anything about it.
