Interesting stuff.

At the Div. IA WJC last winter at exactly this time, the German team was clearly the biggest and fittest of the participants. Lots of big boys and many looked a good bit older than just 18/19/20.

This said, I've always been surprised at the number of large defenseman around the hockey world who originally come from Slovakia. Man have they produced some real biggins over the years.
