Midgets defense and goaltending is crap, but their forwards are exponentially better

Actually closer than I thought it would be. Giants because of the goaltending though.

This. It would be very funny to see the contrast between the two teams. And it would be a competitive game.

Midgets. Their forwards would skate circles around that team. Although the giants have arguably the two best players in Rinne and Chara. Fun thread

Lets use the next all star game to make this happen. We have enough poster power to do it.

Why would they bother skating that much when they could just skate through their legs

Patrick Kane should be on the midgets team.

With the addition of Kane, I take the midgets. Too much talent up front.

Guys like Chara get killed by speed, which the midgets have in spades.

You made it pretty stacked against the Giants team...but I still think they'd win.

Midgets win one game. Giants win a 7 game series every time.

It seems like 6'4 is the maximum height a forward can be and still be an elite talent. At 6'4 you have guys like Thornton, Getzlaf, Nash, Kopitar, etc.

Speaking of which, Byfuglien is 6'4, according to this:
