Kopitar hasn't even learned how to use his size effectively yet. He's been putting up points on skill alone over the past two seasons. Just wait until he realizes he's 6'4, 220, and starts developing more of a power forward edge, ala Getzlaf.
I would think a slight forward that's a year younger would put on more pounds relative to their current body weight compared to the guy who's already big. Kane would be able to handle contact better then. It's probably a minor point though since players like Kane don't use their size, in fact, being light can be an advantage for some forwards (e.g. Gretzky).
