Any other dmen that Thrower is compared to? (he might end up 6'0 or 6'1, no? right now he's 5'11 and approx 185-190lbs, but there's still time to grow...and what's really important is the size of his heart).

Very very happy with this pick
Dalton is as the same height (6'0'') as Bieksa and he's 10-15 pounds lighter, by the time he gets to the NHL he'll be around 205lbs just as Bieksa. And I really don't get the comparision with Wiz, Wiz is pretty shaky in his own zone, Thrower isn't a gem defensively, but he also isn't a liability like Wiz is at times.
