Just like how you said there arent a lot of big dmen that arent great defensively, I could say there arent many that are under 5'11 and make an even bigger list of dmen that are bad defensively.

How about you make a list of top pairing dmen who are under 6 feet and great defensively if youre so sure of your position. Pretty sure the last dman under 6 feet to win the Norris was Randy Carlyle Back in 81. Sprouls skating is exceptional for guys of that height and he hasnt had all that much time to put on weight since his growth spurt either. Hes not a noodle out there, hes more physical then you let on.

He needs to develop but to say he would be better off shorter is probably one of, if not the dumbest things I've ever read on here lol. Once he fills out that 6'4 frame and is still skating great he will be a force to be reckoned with. His development curve has been ridiculous but you think its going to stop all of a sudden for some reason.
Dude, Karlsson won the Norris last year. He is a generous 5'11''
