Point being that I don't think his size will be a problem for him if he develops the skills we expect him to.
There's ~20 defensemen in the league who are 5'10 and under and for the most part it's a pretty impressive list. Just goes to show if you want to make it as a defenseman at that size you have to be exceptionally skilled.

Visnovksy, Timonen, White, Campbell, Liles, Enstrom, and some young guys like Ellis, Spurgeon, and Barrie.
