Top 10 Biggest/Smallest Players in the NHL

Who are they? Big as in weight and height overall. Then, the smallest.
So I'll throw some names out there, Dustin Penner, Todd Bertuzzi Chris Pronger, Taylor Pyatt.

Kris Russell 5'10 (listed no way he is) 168.

I cant believe too many players are lighter than 168.

What we need is a top 10 "fattest" (ie. wide) players in the NHL.

for example:
Mike Grier - 6'1 225
Dustin Byfuglien - 6'3 250 (used to be more)
Raitis Ivanans - 6'3 265
Francis Bouillon - 5'8 200
Brett Lebda - 5'9 200
Anton Volchenkov - 6'1 230
Chris Drury - 5'10 200
Tyler Arnason 5'10 205

Historical fat guys:
Keith Tkachuk - showed up to camp 6'2 250+
Vladimir Krutov - the best fat guy to ever play hockey and the best Russian powerforward, was 5'8 200 when kept in shape by Russian coaches, and ballooned to 220+ while in Vancouver, lol.

They don't call Jiri Hudler the Smurf for nothing. I doubt he's 5'7 in his skates. That's why I love when he gets involved in a scrum, he just skates in under everyone else's elbows.

A buddy of mine met Martin St. Louis in a bar while the World Championships were here in Halifax. St. Louis told him, to his face, that he was at the most 5'6, but usually measured in at 5'5.5. Actually, I'm sure a lot of the shorter guys are given a couple inches in height.

Bouillon is also one of the best hitters in the league, regardless of size. As much as I don't like Bouillon the hockey player, the guy tosses almost anybody that steps in his path. It's so hilarious to see this little Cube (perfect nickname on so many levels) just dummy these bigger, heavier guys. It's his low center of gravity mostly, but damn the guy can hit.

Actually, I was told that it's the same a couple of pro N.A. leagues, nameley the NBA and the NFL. Michael Jordan is listed at 6'6'' when he's actually 6'4.5''-6'5'', others are listed at 6'7'' and they're actually 6'6. I think in Ice Hockey, some players are listed as heavier than they actually are and some taller, the giants like Chara or Boogaard don't need to be heightened though, I think it's their actually height and weight.
