No kidding. Not every undersized player is going to be Theoren Fleury or Martin St Louis, players that Calgary has a history with; one good, one a missed opportunity. We should be the last fans in the league to complain about small skilled forwards, since our team's history has included arguably the two best of that crew.

You don't expect huge stars from the fourth round as it is... no harm in low risk, ANY reward, especially if the kid appears to have high upside.
