With everybody wearing big pads and bulky jerseys sometimes it's hard to tell guys sizes sometimes just by looking at them, and some guys are just built a lot more solidly than others who are the same size. You don't know for sure until you hit them (or bounce off of them).
If Raffi wasn't bigger and stronger than everyone he played in the ahl playoffs he would have been wearing his arse for a hat. He never went along the boards without smacking someone upside the head.
This was one exhibition game and I temper my comments based on a very poor outing by virtually everyone.
Yup, it looked like it was just one of those nights. On the bright side, they just got a wakeup call and it never cost them two points.
