It's not to name a few, it's to name the few only. During's Fleury's time, how many of him were there? Sure, now you got St. Louis, Yorkie, Tanguy, Hedjuk, & Gionta. But aside from the, there are just not that many really small guys that play on the top 2 lines. Heck, even Elias is 6', 195 lbs.
Very small guys CAN make it, but it requires an extraordinary set of wheels, a nice shot, a willingness to be able to be hit, and prove that you can take the pounding.
And even with that we have to look at York's inability to stay healthy in the second half of ANY NHL season.

And even guys like Tanguay and Hedjuk are more in the 6'0, 190 pound range.

When you start getting into the 5'7, 5'8 range its just not as sure of a thing.

I agree with TrueBlue, he's got some areas to work on before this team can take a chance.
