bigger is better obviously, but speed kills...we could use more of it.

Even though he's not looking great right now, I would draft a player like MSC in the 3-5 round every year, multiple of these players if I could. Sooner or later these 100+ junior guys will break out and we'll have a first liner on our hands. You draft one first liner in the middle rounds per decade and you are in phenomenal shape even though 95% of the others will fail to make the NHL.

On the other hand, we drafted Weise and Hollweg, and who cares that they made the NHL?
