Finally good to see that management is seeing this too. Many of us have been advocating this for a couple offseason now.
I am not implying that I know more than management, they have probably noticed this over the last few years as well. Hence the drafting of more NA players in the draft recently. I'm just glad they are finally coming out and saying that they need to get bigger.
Agreed. I'm sure management knew it, but maybe didn't compensate for it as quickly as they could have.
The Wings used to get around their lack of size through skill and puck possession. But the last couple seasons they haven't had the level of talent necessary to play the skill game at as high of a level, but they lacked the size and system to play other ways. So they sometimes were in no mans land.
