Just to be clear... As the debate rages on about size, are we actually talking about size? Or are we talking about toughness? This team doesn't really lack in the size department... Outside of the kid line (MSL, MZA, Brass) this team actually has size on every line.

Kreider - Nash
Pouliot
Boyle - Carcillo/DD

DD because he plays bigger than he is, as does Carcillo.

Now, if we're talking about AV's definition of toughness as a synonym for size, then yes, we are lacking there. I think, IMO, that's more of a heart/want thing, than a size thing. Sure they go hand in hand, but Boyle has more size then plenty of the guys on Winnipeg, they just fought harder when they didn't have the puck than we do.

Teams can be tough when not having the pure size that some posters are looking for.

Anyway, just wanted to clarify for myself.
