Bol and Muggsy

But on topic, Boogard from the Wild looked a lot taller than I expected when I saw them play last time. He's pretty large.

A picture of Chara next to Yao Ming (7'6") would be nice...

272cm (tall man) / 14,5cm (on my monitor) = 18,76

9,8cm ("small" man on monitor) * 18,76 = 184cm

his size is approximately 1,84m or 6,04'.

simple mathematics.

6'04 doesnt equate 184cm

184 cm = ~ 6'02

180 cm = 6 feet

2.5 cm = 1 inch

2.5 x 4 = 10 cm

190cm = 6'04

2.7' = 12 x 2 +7 = 31"

31 x 2.5 = 77.5 cm

so

190 cm = 77.5 cm = 267.5 cm tall...

that's almost 1 meter taller then the average man (178 cm)

which is enormous...

zdeno chara is the tallest player to ever play in the NHL at 6'9, and steve mckenna is the second tallest player to play in the NHL at 6'8.

I just saw Lane Manson play the other day and the gameday flyer listed him as 6'9''.. but he's likely to never play in the NHL

So...

After Chara and McKenna...

Do we all agree that the 3rd tallest was Chris McAllister?

I like this pic of Chara too, when he was in Sweden in FBK and the little punk Andreas Jämtin tried to be tough against Chara.

I've seen pictures of friends sitting in his custom chair. Friggin' hilarious. The guy standing next to him must be 5'4 or so.
Wow. I wonder how big his "Thing" was.
