Yzerman (who is my all time favorite player) was only 5'10 and maybe 185 soaking wet. How exactly does Skinner's size limit him from becoming a better defensive player has he matures similar to how Yzerman did? I'm not saying he'll ever be as good either offensively or defensively as Yzerman, but his size won't be the reason why.

Also, I think it's safe to say that Yzerman has had a concussion or two in his day, even if they weren't diagnosed as such back then (e.g..players just say they got their bell rung). In fact, he even admits to it.
