Spurgeon is hurt a lot, and size may play a part. Not much one can do about a shot, but he was injured in Europe during the lockout. Plus he had a concussion last year I believe at the end of the season. There may have been more.

5'6", 170 lb defensemen, or whatever exaggerated numbers may be applied to him, was fine in the NHL 30-years ago. It is an issue in today's game considering the speed, and a good portion of the players having at least 30 lbs on Spurgeon.

Keep in mind PMB has 2-3 inches on Spurgeon, and we all know how often he has had concussion issues.
