Maybe Dawes doesn't make it. Maybe it's because of his size. But to outright dismiss him this early (and dismiss every player under 6 ') is pretty shortsighted in my opinion.
I agree with everything you said, Lev. Claiming that Rucinsky is a power forward is fairly silly. And stating that the NHL is no place for midgets is really grasping at straws. It is not a place for ALL midgets, but there are noticeable examples of those who have succeeded, despite being vertically challenged.
