I've been trying to figure out how to put this for a while now and this basically sums it up. Elliott looked a bit like a boy amongst men at times. Barrie, on the other hand, while being shorter than Elliot is a really solid looking guy.

Barrie and a bunch of other NHLers were in town a few weeks ago for the Schenn's charity golf tourney. They were out at the bar the one night and even standing next to guys like Franson, Cowen, and Schenn he didn't look out of place, like he could hold his own in the corner with any of them.

In hindsight I just wish I had gotten Bozak's autograph... opportunity of a lifetime wasted right there.
