Tell me again how this is impossible for a small player?

I love responses like this which misquote what I said (like I never said it was impossible for starters).

Most of the guys you list are 5' 10" and over 180 lbs as well.
5' 10" is quite a bit taller than 5'7" 150-155 lbs (that Johnny is listed at).

The most common traits for a "little guy" to make and star in the NHL is a thick body, like 175lbs plus and plus plus skating skills to compensate for their small stature.
