I don't like the Omark example. His size isn't the reason he didn't make it. His attitude was his own down fall. He refused to pay his dues in the minors and improve the aspects of his game that made him, for lack of a better term, not good enough.

Omark wasn't really a small player either. He may be short, but he's sticky and fairly good with his body. His issue was also the fact he was a terrible skater and was awful defensively. If he had refined those skills in OKC and stuck with it, he may be on the Oilers now.

Rajala, from what I've interpreted, is a much better skater and is average defensively. He also has a better work ethic apparently, which leads me to believe he has a better chance to make it one day than Omark.
