This isn't basketball. Size isn't a prerequisite of anything. It's simply a helpful attribute that can be overcome by a myriad of other skills. All the small players that reach the NHL have defeated their size disadvantage to get there. They mostly don't get stymied by the size of their opponents past that point, but by the fact that the
skills of their opponents are greater than their own.
You are comparing two young guys at least 10 years younger than Gio. I think if we are looking for someone to play third line minutes and is responsible then Gio is not the guy, he was a giveaway machine during the playoffs. Would rather play Moen than resign Gio. This is a business, we need to get bigger, we were 6 games shy of a cup. Maybe game 6 would of been different against the Rangers if we could actually get someone in front of the net other than Gallagher. Down a goal in game 6 with the season on the line and we manage 5 shots on goal? last night the Kings were one game away from winning the cup, down a goal and they out shoot and out chance the Rangers 18-5 that is the kind of effort we needed in game 6 but came up short, time for some changes and that should include Gio.
