It's not that weird. We have a bunch of people on this board who constantly overvalue the Height/Weight numbers of players instead of the size of their game. Those people would still readily admit that Datsyuk and Zetterberg are the best players on the team. They just haven't made the connection yet that you don't have to be 6'5 to play a 6'5 game.

Datsyuk was voted the hardest to take off the puck by the players' poll for a reason. Size isn't everything. It's that strength and heart.
