On the Habs official website, it says Begin is 6 feet!! i thought he was around 5.10 or something. Did the trainer install platformes in his skates? LOL

He was always 6 feet tall. It's just that his bald head refracts the light making him seem shorter.

Most of the time, players that were listed 5'11 are listed at 6'.
Begin, Higgins, Streit, Sergei Kostitsyn (sometimes), PK Subban (maybe he grew up a little bit).

And btw, Pleky is now listed at 5'11, maybe he'll be 6' next season

Or he was wearing 2 inch afro wig over his baldiness.

Euro players are usually listed taller because we use metrics and someone always make simple conversion 1 ft = 30 cm and 1 inch = 2,5 cm.

I'd say this is probably the correct answer - especially if a few more players are listed taller than before. They might all shrink next year

When it comes to players heights usually take 1 or 2 inches and you get the real deal...well maybe not for the real big guys like Komi or Laraque but the small ones are always exagerated.

I was 'working' for the physical evaluation for a Montreal francophone university football team ( wondere who? ) couple years ago and some guys were 5'7 or 5'8 and 170-175 lbs and were listed at 5'11 or 6'0 at around 185-190....that was just hilarious to see
