I don't even think being small is that big of a disadvantage if at all. Today's hockey is all about speed, agility, quickness. I'm 6'2" and there are moves in tight areas I'll never be able to pull off that you probably can.
There are so many small players in the league now doing very well that are a testament to that. Briere, Girby, Gionta, Parise, Gomez, St. Louis, to a lesser extent Giroux. Matt Read may win the Calder. I don't know what he's listed at, but I don't think he's over 5'8".
