Just my own impression, having seen him up close at several Wolfpack games, I'd say that's a very realistic height/weight number for Juris. He might even be heavier (though I don't think taller).

The problem for Stals is his foot-speed. He's very slow, and is constantly lunging and diving to try to stay in the play. But he's very sound definsively, has a nice shot, and seems to work hard. I see him as maxing out at the Dan LaCouture/Mikael Samuelsson level myself.... but those are still useful guys to have.
