He's got at minimum four inches, and there's pretty much no way McQuaid is under 200 where he's listed at some places. Buffalo is also pretty liberal with their weights, I doubt McCormick gained 10-15 pounds since leaving Colorado and Kaleta is much closer to 6', 195 than 6'1" 209 or whatever.

As for McQuaid being one of the "toughest fighters in the league," what has he done to deserve that honor? Score a bunch of wins against middleweights and cans? Yeah, he's the fourth toughest guy on his own team and hugely benefits from other team's toughest guys looking for Thornton, Chara and Lucic before they get to him.

And exactly one person said Kaleta would beat McQuaid. What people are saying is that Kaleta has already fought a bigger, better, tougher fighter in Lucic, there's no reason he wouldn't go with McQuaid in the right circumstances.
