As I recall, Jean Béliveau was the tallest Hab in his playing days. He was also the best. He was a smooth skater but by no means the fastest. He wasn't the best shooter. The Rocket was. He was a good defensive player but not the best. The Habs sure could use his clone.

My post doesn't answer anyone's questions but I think it raises some interesting points that are tangential to the discussion of McCarron.
