Jim Nill said Zetterberg is actually 160lbs soaking wet last week during his introduction in Dallas. So they fudge that weight just as an example.

He is strong on his skates, maybe you haven't noticed the improvement but it shows month to month and in two years this will be something nobody talks about and we will laugh at the people that brought it up all the time. Like Bench said there are plenty of people that have made a career out of being small and quick. If you have the hockey IQ and tenacity it pans out and he has those in spades.
