Watch out for Viktor Arvidsson in the WJC. Ridiculous acceleration and intensity, he also has a very good one-timer.

I'm pretty sure about that too.
I am myself 5'9" or 5'9.5", I've already met MSL once, and I am definitely a little bit taller than him by at least an inch or so.

I have yet to see a sport that accurately lists all heights and weights on there rosters. In the end when you look at it, the roster will still give you an idea of a guys general body type. The +/- 5 lbs or half an inch isn't going to make that much of a difference for an initial thought on a player without having seen them.

He was a little rat at the end with the Habs.. Was clearly not pushing hard or in the same direction as the others.. He is small and not very fast so he gets crushed hard and has been injured in the last years.. He has charactere and can step his game up when it really matters but you will never convince him to play a hard work, defensive minded first system.. The guy had basically no friend in the locker room, likes to do his littles things alone.. So regarding the good attitude, I would certainly pass..

Doesn't Granlund count as "to small". Based on skill I think he would have been picked as number 3 or 4 his year.

I also hope that Oscar Möller pans out. He got a wicked shot!

He was the only player who called the team out on how terrible they were playing. I'd value that more than bonding over mediocrity.

Catenacci loses a stud linemate in Halmo and how does he respond? 32 points in 20 games. Holy crap does this kid look sexy. I just signed him in another keeper league. Would love to hear from some Owen Sound fans.

The funniest thing about heights was Kovalchuk "growing" from 6'1 to 6'3 at 28 years.

On topic, that player "not good enough to be drafted" - Nikita Gusev.

Wasn't Giroux considered "too small" in his draft year?
