RolexSub Posted January 24, 2022 Share Posted January 24, 2022 (edited) I just accounted for 8 players that are under 6ft tall in stature. Here are the following players under 6ft tall under our current lineup: Forwards: Conor Garland: 5'7" 165lbs Nils Hoglander: 5'9" 190lbs Sheldon Dries: 5'9" 185lbs Tyler Motte: 5'10" 192lbs Justin Dowling: 5'10" 181lbs Matthew Highmore: 5'11" 187lbs Defence: Brad Hunt: 5'9" 176lbs Quinn Hughes: 5'10" 170lbs Between the 8 players above we average in 5'9"tall and weighing in at 180lbs only. I am sure some of the players above are smaller and the Canucks just being more generous in their exact height and weight. I know size isn't always everything but only if you play like Brad Marchand can in the NHL to be affective player. I think we need to beef up in size and strength and toughness before the trading deadline. With my list above, I am hoping we trade the following for up size: Sheldon Dries: 5'9" 185lbs Justin Dowling: 5'10" 181lbs Matthew Highmore: 5'11" 187lbs Brad Hunt: 5'9" 176lbs Size will definitely matter during the playoffs as each series you have to grind it out. To be a contender in the future we need to upsize this trading deadline. Edited January 24, 2022 by RolexSub 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
