It was actually a genuine question because I was curious; however, I can see how it came off as me implying snidely that Chicago beat Boston with a weight disadvantage, when I didn't mean to.
That said. Weight and size mean very little. A cohesive team with a good system is what matters.
Size is helpful, not going to detract completely from that attribute but the Oilers had a list of problems and size is probably closer to the bottom. Yes it needs to be addressed but there we're other VERY glaring problems.
Bigger problems than size: Passion, Depth, Coaching, Systems and then maybe Size.
RNH, Hall and Ebs aren't big players but I can't recall a single line they went up against that they didn't make look small.
