I doubt it has something to do with size - Welinski have size, but lacks elements that Roy is spectacular in.
I`m a big fan of Roy, even though i really dislike his size - there are great examples of undersized great players... aslong as the team doesn`t have many of them on the roster.
He isn`t as hyped because he was just drafted. If we`d drafte him and Welinski last year and would be able to follow him in USHL during the whole season, a lot of fans would be pissing rainbows (
) about how great he is, and he would be above Welinski in our prospect poll.
Isn't Roy a year older?
