I can't believe people on here are actually that silly that they would argue about someone's odds of making the NHL based on height statistics. For starters, weight means more than height (if you don't believe me, ask yourself why sports don't break their divisions by height class, rather they choose weight classes). In addition, for his age group he has proven himself to physically be one of the strongest in several categories. Beyond all of that, here's a far more simple statistical measure that probably has a million times more relevance than any of those measures:

Statistically, based on draft position, where does he stand to pan out? Then consider he was drafted there while going most of the season playing next to no games.
