What took so long to understand that we had/have to get bigger? in Habs & Hockey Talk Posted March 3, 2012 Didn't know where to post it, but this is a translation from a Randy Cunneyworth quote : «Que tu te serves de cet élément-là (de robustesse) ou non, ce n'est pas toujours important, a noté Cunneyworth. Mais il faut que les autres équipes sachent que c'est là. C'est une autre corde à notre arc, et c'est bien de savoir qu'on peut y recourir au besoin.» I don't really know how to translate "robustesse" but in english : "Using this element (sturdiness??/grit/fighting/hard body check) or not is not always important. But other teams has to know that you have it. It is another string to our bow and it's good to know that we can use it when needed." BOOOM I like RC and I'd like to see us adding a few grinders who can play 10+ mins per game. nhlnumbers.com have Brandon Prust as a UFA for next season. I'd target him BIG time !!! Only took 60+ games in a lost season of the 8 year BG/PG plan . And are we really much bigger than the past ? Diaz,Campoli,Kab,as new additions don't strike me as big. And Bourque has some size,but rarely uses it.I'll give big props for getting Staubitz,but I doubt he's here next year.Just in the last year we've dumped Laps,Mara,Sopel,O'byrne,Gill, AK,Pouliot(who is the same physical player as Bourque).Also added Emelin.So no,I say we haven't gotten bigger.
