Name your favorite all-time small Hab
 
In a perfect world, yes, we would have some bigger players. But in the "new" NHL with a salary cap and younger free agency and the game on the ice emphasizing speed, you can't build the perfect team. If you want speed up front, you probably have to sacrifice something to get it... Were we expecting a team full of super-fast 40-goal scorers who hit like Scott Stevens?

Anyway, I'm glad that at least we're going out and getting some players who are proven scorers. I had gotten tired of waiting for Kovy, Higgy, Koivu, Kost, and Pleks to become consistent 30-goal guys.

So I thought it would be fun to name your favorite SMALL hab (let's say sub-5'11") from the past. Put a little perspective on the fact that small doesn't mean inadequate. When you think about it, you'll realize there's a lot to choose from.

I'm going to go with the Roadrunner... all of 5'7", consistent point production, stayed out of the box, great at producing in the playoffs.
