He also has size

Being a big body allows an athlete to do more in their respective arena. They can win matchups much easier and can be tough to handle one-on-one. Prospecting teams will appreciate what Brayden McNabb brings to the table, for he's that big body.

The Saskatchewan defenseman stands at 6'4" and weighs 216 lbs. Part of his physical play comes from leveraging his size throughout his defensive play, making him a tough matchup. Whether it's a solid hip check or a blocked shot, he's not afraid to go all-out in the defensive zone.

That's especially true on the penalty kill, where he's also strong. He leverages his size to block shots here, prepping the Vegas Golden Knights to dump the puck out. $2.85 million might be peanuts compared to $5.2 million from a salary cap perspective. However, the Golden Knights are desperate to make room, which means they might look to move McNabb if Theodore doesn't go.
