Lol. The RW's own website has him listed at 156 pounds!
BTW, for those throwing out igor, you realize that was almost 20 years ago now. he was considered small then.
In Russia, Igor throws YOU out.
Forgive me, but I don't understand your angle. I was using Igor as an example of an "undersized" center by comparison. An undersized HHOF center.
Like a 6' 200 lbs Mitch Callahan, 6'2" 207 Joakim Anderson, 6'2" 212 Riley Sheahan, 6'4" 208 Louis-Marc Aubry, or 6'2" Tomas Jurco in GR? Maybe add a 6' 193 Martin Frk, 6'2" 217 Marek Tvrdon, 6'2" 200 Andrej Nestrasil, or 6'6" 207 Rasmus Bodin to that list? And that's just on the forward front.
Time will tell how they all develop but overall, I think Kenny & the staff have been doing a pretty bang up job in mixing in more size to the prospect pool in the last few drafts.
Oh my gosh. I REALLY hope Rasmus Bodin makes it to the big club. I hope he becomes the next most feared player. "Rasmus The Destroyer"! Not since "The Vladinator" has Detroit possessed such a being.
I know that these days nobody wants to get "Kronwalled", but I really miss having such a force.
