So yeah, congrats are in order to the Ducks for winning the Cup. They've got a nice core of young guys who've already established themselves as prime time NHLers. And I think they showed that size doze matter in the end or at least that it doesn't hurt to be bigger than the next guy in most cases.

Getzlaf 22 6-3, 211
Perry 22 6-3, 202
Penner 24 6-4, 243 signed as a free agent (how'd everyone miss this guy)
Kunitz 27 5-11, 198 singed as a free agent
Moen 25 6-2, 216
Beauchemin 27 6-0, 210

Next Up

Bobby Ryan 20 6-1, 213


If the Wings do anything this offseason I hope they get bigger

Maybe instead of swapping our current boys for new ones, we could get the Wings to hire my wife as a nutrition specialist. She seems to get bigger every year tongue.gif

The knock on this CBA is that they'll likely never keep all the players they have, so they could go from number 2 to number 20 next year, who knows anymore.

Size is only part of the equation; these big guys need to have the ability to play the game ie skate, passing, shooting, playing D etc etc...The last thing we need is a team full of Derian Hatchers.

I agree that the Wings need a little improvement in size , but they done a hell of a job this season with what they've got. thumbup.gif

clap.gif for a bunch of over-sized midgets we did pretty darn good; could've been us hoisting the Cup with our little stubby arms.

Frankly I care. This new nhl sucks are we all know our team is much more new nhl than any other team, and I pine for the good old days of Probert and Kocur and I pine for the days when we were the perenial bad asses of the league. Averaging a fight almost every 8 games simply isnt good enough and we know somwhere Probert and Kocur are disgusted at what at we are now, heck even Shanny probably has lost a ton of respect for us.

Yeah, if only we could've won more fights we might've beaten the Ducks. Seeing as how fighting was such an integral part of their win over us. Let's see, Markov fought Thornton at a draw and what else.............................................oh yeah, they're weren't any more fights. And the Ducks had zero fights against the Sens I think.

I know what you mean about having a couple of tough guy's in the team . but this team didn't do to shabby against two of the toughest team in the NHL . As I said in an earlier post with a little upgade in size and we'll be good to go , and it doesn't matter where the tough guy's come from as long as they do their job.

Markov slightly lost.... and im just saying we might have won more on the road THROUGHOUT the season if we get people to stick up for our smaller guys.

And IM blaming the new nhl for these no fights, im just saying more teams should stay more traditional, I can only echo Don Cherrys words but frankly cba, you all know what he said.

As far as size is concerned, I'd be happy with simply retaining Bertuzzi. We have guys that can handle themselves; Chelios, Schneider, Franzen, Lilja, Kopecky, Cleary....even Datsyuk and Zetterberg got a little feisty during the playoffs... I don't want a roster spot taken from a player with skill for a player that is only good at fighting.....
