Size isn't nearly as much of an issue as some folks want to make it out to be. Small stature is only a problem when you don't suit your game for it. The big, hulking defenders of the NHL cannot clutch-and-grab anymore. So the small, agile forwards are much more effective.

I've spoken to a few friends who saw MZA play frequently and the concern is strength. Not tempo, transition, skating, or size.

LMFAO

Does MZA have the longest last name of any Ranger?

Hes got Vanbeisbrouck by one letter...

The obsession with spelling on this board is laughable. Be happy that there are still journalists around who can actually see the players practice and bother to keep people updated.

He's the only driver I can think of that doesn't take his pace notes in his native language. I always wondered if he grew up with English as the primary language in the Solberg home because Henning's accent is also heavily Engish-ized.
