Yes, and it's a real handicap in a contact league playing a game where reach is an enormous factor. Also there's a lot of simple bias toward big bodies. The guys who overcome it need to be special. Ain't no 5'8" Rene Borques in the NHL that I can think of. But there's a ton of 6'2" guys who don't show half the effort and desire to improve those two guys have shown.
Hopefully Hudon has the desire and the discipline to make it.
