I see Chicago and Detroit being brought up as exemples and while it's true that they aren't the biggest teams , they aren't as small as the Habs either nor do they get pushed around as much. Find me a team that has three 5"6 - 5"7 guys in their top 6 who won the cup recently ? You won't find any. And there is still a bit of a difference between being 5"11 200lbs (Datsyuk , Zetterberg , Crosby ect) and 5"6-5"8 170-180lbs(Desharnais , Gionta , Bouillon , Gallagher ect)
Bouillon is 200lbs and stronger/tougher/more physical than any of the guys you named, not sure why you'd even include him in that group?
