Nigel Dawes

Now this was an unbelievable scout for the rangers last year. Back to back 47 goal seasons in the WHL is unbelievable for his size. If he was 2 or 3 inches taller he would've been a first rounder. But he can still grow a little bit more. He is listed at 5'8 175 pounds. I was browsing through NHL.com the other day and it showed Theo Fleury was 5'6 160. Call me crazy but I didn't think he was that small. Also, you have to look at Marty St.Louis, an MVP candidate. Yes players are getting bigger but look at how Kariya, Yzerman, Kapanen, and Oates turned out. Can somebody tell me why Dawes is any different. He was arguably team Canada's best player at the World Junior Championships, against the likes of other first rounders. Unbelievable how this kid was a 5th round pick. Thanks Sather. This kid is without a doubt a steal, prove me otherwise.
