By the time he's 25 Cowen will probably be most ogre like player in the league. By this time Chara will be gone. You may see Cowen at 245 someday.

I still maintain that at the moment, regardless of size differences, Chara's puck skills, lateral mobility and poise with the puck are all better than Cowen's. Cowen's lucky though his offensive hockey sense actually appears adequate to land him on the powerplay...it's whether the other stuff comes up to par.
