Yeah, that's my feeling on him. If he is going to be an NHL regular, he's going to have to be playing at a higher level than if he wasn't so undersized.

So not too many, though according to Wikipedia Spurgeon is 185 not 168 so he may not be that far off from the 190 mark. Either way, I think Ghost will need to play at least a year in the AHL before he even sniffs the NHL (unless he is like absolutely dominating or something). Should be interesting, but my expectations for Ghost are not very high at the moment. He has an uphill battle in front of him because of his size. Undersized guys have and can make an impact, but they are behind the eightball from the get-go. I'm sure he has a ton of skill, but I'll be skeptical of him because of his size until he proves me wrong.
