Brendan Shinnimin, another squirt that we had in camp/TC when he was scoring 96 points in 60 WHL games, has 34 points in 79 career AHL games. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault, the "phenom" that we "missed out on" has yet to earn an NHL roster spot. Those two may become NHL players one day, but the list of small guys that fail to make it is about 500 times longer than the list of small guys that make it. In the overwhelming majority of instances, small stature can't be overcome. It is what it is.

I'd have given Tolchinsky a spot over Donnay, sure, but we didn't. So I'm not worried about him. I'll pay attention to Donnay and hope he pans out.


It's just pain.
