Flyers Defense Will Be Even Bigger This Season

To Paul Holmgren, size does matter. The Flyers general manager has assembled a defensive corps that is one of the biggest in the NHL. The eight defensemen in training camp, on the average, are 6-foot-21/2 and 219 pounds - and that average is reduced because of the smallish Kimmo Timonen (5-10, 194). Since last February, Holmgren has added bulk by acquiring Nick Grossmann (6-4, 230) and Luke Schenn (6-2, 229) in trades, and signing Kurtis Foster (6-5, 225).
