I tend to agree that we don't have 1 "blue chipper" including Niitty as he was a 6th round pick. 6th round picks are considered "blue chippers" IMO, no matter how good they look like they are going to be.

Secondly, the height and weight thing will NOT be an issue. I repeat it will NOT be an issue. The judgement will be whether he can play or not, just like it will be for the rest of the goalies in our system. Plenty of men who went on to stellar careers or are playing now are right in that range.

Belfour 5 11 202
Dipietro 5 11 185
Hasek 5 11 180
Irbe 5 8 190
Joseph 5 11 190
Nabokov 6 0 200
Raycroft 6 0 174
Richter 5 11 185
Salo 5 11 182
Theodore 5 11 182
Thibault 5 11 170
Turco 5 11 183
Vernon 5 9 180
Beezer 5 8 176
Vokoun 6 0 195

That looks like a pretty good list to me. Houle is 5 10 and 170. I don' think any of those numbers will keep him out of the NHL.
