Being big and big alone is useless in today's NHL.
I agree to an extent, but our defense would be fine with the proper coach. The current coach just has no synergy with this D group whatsoever. Once Timonen retires or continue to regress or leaves Philly we're absolutely screwed till we bring in a true number one with offensive talent.
