That's true. Every potential scoring project in this team is pretty small and not that physical. Though, I have no problem with Collberg's size....and you hope that a De la Rose for example would improve his scoring touch. The rest of Hamilton, our biggest real offensive threats are Andrighetto and Thomas. The rest it's Reway, Lekhonen and Bozon...who else? Grégoire could surprise and be a Bournival. I don't see Hudon being top 6. The rest is for the bottom 6.

At that spot, if Mantha would have been available, for me, it was a no-brainer. You pick him....and you work with him. There is some possibility that he ends up being a Keven Veilleux....but maybe not. But there is some possibility that Big Mac doesn't flourish either. As great as last year's draft was, end of 1st...there are questions marks. I'd take a big real pure threat scoring forward any day of the week.
