Yea I know that you were not mocking Morrissey for it. I just think that size gets overrated a little too much. If there is someone who is average sized like him, but can skate and has shown good hockey sense there is no reason to let them slide in the draft. Look at Richards he wasn't/isn't great at any particular skill and is average height and weight but his hockey sense has made him one of the top two way forwards in the league with two cup finals appearances and a ring.
