Multiple sources? like who? name me the multiple sources please. It's a well known fact that hockey players exaggerate their height on a common basis (Mattias Tedenby at 5'10) For instance 5'9 sounds alot better then 5'6 or 5'7 on paper.

Flames prospect camp had him at 5'8 and a half, Boston College has him at 5'8 from the summer and USA hockey had him at 5'9. Again multiple sources have had him at or above 5'8 I don't know why you are so concerned.

Do you believe everything you hear? Again did you watch the game vs Finland? he looked no bigger than Lino Martschini (5'6 143 lbs) on the ice, you need to face the facts that ur boy is a midget

He's a great young player and i'm in no way questioning his ability as a player, but he just looks alot shorter than 5'9 to me.

So you believe what you see on tv from a camera angle that isn't level but believe 3 times teams have lied to make JG feel better.

He has solid puck skills and a great release, but put him up vs an average d man( Leddy or Sutton for ex) he would be an afterthought


People saying he is enter than a younger better skating Teravainen is laughable.

Theo Fleury was listed at 5'6.

I've seen him in person, he definitely WAS NOT 5'6.

He didn't seem that far off from 5'6 when I met him.

No.

Remember when MPS tore up the World Championships and made their all-star team? Remember when he put up a hattrick in an NHL preseason game?

People were calling him the steal of the draft at the draft and especially after those events.

You can't judge how a player will do until he has faced NHL competition for a prolonged period of time.

It'd be nice if he turned out to be like Desharnais.

Leddy is a scrub. Gaudreau would have both of them mesmerized. Sorry that he would turn your boys inside out, brah.

Yeah he's lucky if he's 5'6. Nowhere near 5'9, no matter what that Flames fan wants to believe. If he's 5'9 then so is Grimaldi

For some perspective, Michael Sit, who's #18 standing next to him is 5'10.

https://www.google.ca/search?q=rocco...XYooGoAw#i=100
I've stood right next to him. He's a good inch or two, perhaps a little more, taller than I am, and I'm 5'6".

He's probably not 5'9", but as I've said before, he's probably something around 5'7.5"-5'8".

Also, Grimaldi is quite a bit shorter than Gaudreau. This is undeniable.

Martin St Louis has been listed as 5"8-5"9 for most of his career FYI. I'm going to go with multiple league listings than "Omg do you watch tv he is not that tall"

Hmmmmmm I wonder how many more pages we can go of Flames fans insisting he's 5'9" (he's not) and other fans insisting he's 5'5" (also not). Such interesting discussion.
