And yes, the NHL does covet size more than anything. Thats why teams like the Devils will always snatch up better players like Parise because they realize that talent, drive, and determination are sometimes just as important as size.

You are comparing apples and Oranges. Offensive production in the CCHA is totally different then Canadian Junior Hockey. Parise is a Blue Chip Prospect - and is the same size as Tambellini - which is 4 inches taller then Dawes.

By the way, Parise, considered a Blue Chip Prospect (at 5'11) has 20 goals this year. Tambellini has 14. You can't compare these offensive statistics - you have to compare the player and his talents as well.
