If Gernat fills out he will be scary, because a man with his size, and caliber of shot, and skating ability would make Morrow look like a midget.[
If Gernat currently weighs 191 lbs (per the WHL website) and he adds 20 lbs of muscle, he would weigh more than Morrow. Simple arithmetic, there. Thank goodness games are decided by how well the players can play the game of hockey and not by their size.

Gernat's an intriguing prospect, but he needs better conditioning and more work with his decision making, thus making Morrow the superior prospect.

P.S. How does one's shot and speed make someone else look like a midget? The term "midget" is relative to size, not speed or ability to shoot a hockey puck.
