Player heights
 
Does anybody know exactly how tall various stars actually are compared to their listings? I'm mostly curious about eriksson, since I've seen him listen at both 6'1" and 6'3" and I have a tough time buying 6'3"

With/without skates, maybe?

LatvianTwist 10-15-2011 12:21 AM

Skates typically add about two inches, so Modo's probably right.

I'm around six feet tall out on the ice, but no where near that without skates. They really do make a difference.

Well I'm well aware skates add a good 2-3 inches, but I have a tough time imagining any players being measured on skates. I was just wondering if anyone on here has met loui and what height he seems closer to

i wouldn't read too much in to player heights...

i'm about 5'10 on the dot... 5'9 and change on a bad day... and i've met morrow, daley, and robidas... and they range in height from exactly my height, to considerably shorter. but i think they're all listed as 5'11.

guy carbonneau too....

derian hatcher, on the other hand, is not an inch shorter than 10 feet tall. holy god was he intimidating.

I've met Eriksson and there's no way he's 6'3". I'm 6' and he definitely wasn't 3 inches taller than me.

Fistric seemed pretty short when I saw him signing autographs once. 5'9" max, maybe. No taller than me.

piqued 10-21-2011 03:56 PM

What? You think Fistric is 5 inches shorter than his listed height? That's ridiculous.

Yeah he is significantly taller than 5'9. I could maybe buy 6'1 but even that is a stretch.

Maybe it was someone else. But I distinctly remember not having to look up at one guy, and I could've sworn it was him.

It was a couple years ago though, too. Probably just not remembering it correctly.

Brand New Stars 10-21-2011 11:28 PM

Yeah he's not 5'9". Taller for sure. Probably about 6' or 6'1" sounds right.

Arnott was the biggest Stars player I've met.
