Sizes at Center: Gomez 5FT 11" & Drury 5FT 10"

it is me or what - Did sizes at center for the NYRangers just shrink ...

I mean Scotty Gomez is listed at 5ft 11 inches ... Chris Drury is 5FT 10 inches ...

If I am a big club with centers over 6Ft and up i should be able to push the Rangers Centers or over power them for 60 minutes .. ...

What do you guys thing? huh

Did you think Nylander was some sort of giant?

Nylander was a monster and extremely physical.

Drury and Gomez are clearly downgrades

Heck, there shouldn't even be hockey players that are shorter than 6 feet.

If a team wants to push our centers around, I'm sure Avery, Shanahan, Orr, and Hollweg will have something to say about that. You just got owned. Go eat your Lucky Charms little boy

I'll tell you what I'm excited about. Drury was 3rd best in the league in faceoffs, plus Gomez, Cullen and Betts were all over 50% and in the top 25. We just went from a mediocre face off team to a very good one.

Another good aspect.

Actually, the Rangers may be the best faceoff team in the league now.

When they get push around (Gomez & Drury) ... I would love to see Jagr defend them...

Remember what Ottawa Senator did to Chris Drury during regular game brawl and playoff ...

Orr will do just fine.

Remember what Philadelphia Flyer did to the Rangers that game? Made them have to wait while he was being carried off.

Hmmm, I don't think Gomez or Drury ever got "overpowered" when they were with the Devils and Sabres.

I can't wait for the season to start already, to shut the nay sayers yaps...again.

Other current players 6 feet and under:

Briere, obviously
Pavel Datsyuk
Slava Kozlov
Andy McDonald
Daymond Langkow
Paul Kariya
Saku Koivu
Henrik Zetterberg

The list goes on and on....

Let's not say stupid things about height. The difference between 5'10" and 6'1" can be totally mitigated by body type, work habits and overall style of play. Height isn't necessarily important.

EDIT: Let's add some more to the list... Joe Sakic, Steve Yzerman, Doug FREAKIN Gilmour... Rafalski, Gionta, Bates, Blake... HENRI RICHARD! Marcel Dionne and his 1700 penalty minutes... There are some tough-ass players there that hardly got pushed around.

I'm not so concerned about the height of these 2 guys as I am with overall team toughness. Hollweg/Orr/Avery are nice...but I think we could really use a bruiser on the backline.

They may be small-ish, but they certainly aren't strong or non-physical. In fact, I don't recall either Gomer or Drury being pushed around a whole lot.

Wow... I agree with your point, but that is harsh. Get some class.

It's not like they got weaker. The subbed Straka and Nylander with Drury and Gomez as the top 2 line centers. You can make the case that they actually got stronger up the middle with that swap.

First of all, size isn't as big of a factor in the new NHL. Secondly, size has very little to do with determining one's "toughness". Theo Fleury was a pretty tough guy, and he was only 5' 6".

Drury & Gomez are both over 200lbs, Nylander and Straka were under. They're not going to be pushed around.
