Oilers forwards second biggest in the league

http://www.fromtherink.com/

I sure didn't see this coming. Oilers defence is also the 7th largest in the league, along with being the 7th oldest. The kid line may be small, but the rest of the team more than makes up for this. If only you could convince them to hit like they're the 2nd biggest.

True, but a lot of other teams have one or two bull dozers that bring up their numbers.

Too bad it doesn't have average height as well for forwards. This board has posters who sneer at "small forwards" and I've always wondered where the line is. 6-0? 200?

With an average NHL forward weight of 202.3, is Gags at 5-11 and 191 just a few extra helpings of dessert away from escaping the "small forward" tag? Does Schremp at 5-11 and 200 just need a few Mars bars? Etc.

Is Schremp really 200 lbs though? He looks like a skinny kid out there.

That's what the Falcons' site says. He isn't listed anywhere on the Oilers' site.

I shoud've thown in 245lbs of conscientious objector as well.

That adds up to 3 players that combined tip the toledos at more than 750lbs. Thats 3 players weighing almost as much as 4 regular forwards.

Of course thats the whole story here just look at the range in numbers. 5 lbs/ less and we're below average weight.

For whatever reason, the NHL.com stat pages don't have height listed if you go into the bio section like they have in the past. Every other year I did a height average as well, but couldn't easily pull it together this time.

We are pretty big upfront

Cole, Pouliot, Brodziak and Moreau are 6'2

Stortini is 6'3

Penner is 6'4

MacIntyre is 6'6

I think the problem is not the lack of size, but lack of gritand hitting.

Souray, Strudwick, Cole and Moreau are the only guys who can take the body.

That's true. Though aside from Glencross, that's three more guys than we had for most of last year.

And MacIntyre is generally good for a crushing hit per game. I don't worry about team toughness so much anymore.

Penner throws off those numbers.

He might be 6'4 and 245 lbs, but he plays like he's 5'9 and 180 lbs.

The most important thing is that the teams biggest difference makers (besides the goalie) are the top two lines; and 5 of 6 of them are average size (Horcoff, Hemsky), to small (Gagner, Cogs, Nilsson) and not physical--with the lone exception of Cole. I don't don't think that's very ideal. The bottom two lines skew the average size of the forwards by a very large amount.

Obviously if Penner gets moved up, and switches with Nilsson, that changes. But the thing with Penner is that he may be big, but he's not physical, and plays pretty much a 'small player players game'-ish style, rendering his size atleast somewhat irrelevant (unless he plants his butt in front of the net, which he should do more often, as he's hard to move).
