Far be it for me to say it's impossible *looks at avatar*
How are his chances fairly low statistically? You've provided no argument. All you said was that 26% of NHL defensemen are Rielly's size or smaller, all that means is that his height is below average for an NHL defensemen. That isn't at all statistical evidence that it's harder for him to make the NHL at that height though. You're just making stuff up. Your argument holds as much weight as me saying that there are even less NHL defensemen that are 6'4 or taller, therefore Hamilton has low odds of being a star NHL defensemen.
