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.
I have a family friend that is an exec of an Olympia division and has been around the guys a lot over the years. A couple things he's mentioned that stick out are that, at 6'1, he feels like he's definitely more than an inch taller than Kronwall, whereas he feels like Datsyuk is closer to his height.
