Why so i dont know, but i could think that majority of the "smallish" players get the same treatment. So i could think that even Canadian prospects arent that big as the stats suggest..
Rajala is listed 176cm (5.8 - 5.9) so hes as big as Kapanen or even slightly bigger. So if Kapanen could play in NHL so should Rajala. and i talk about size not skill.
Minor correction, Kapanen said he's probaly 175cm, which is infact 5'9.
