Yes the average size is most likely overstated. But even if it is the average size is still bigger than the listed/overstated size of Helm. 6-1/205 (overstated) is still bigger than Helm 6-0/195 (overstated). Which again means Helm is under the league average in size. .
Now size in and of itself means nothing. Where it does mean something is in applying pain on the other teams D. If I am a defensemen playing vs the RW's who would I rather be checked by? Helm at 6-0/195 or Martin at 6-3/205? Martin is a much more physical player and larger player. Guys like him cause the other teams players to tire and get gun shy. That is what increases mistakes.
Why are you changing the numbers? You did the same thing when talk about Patrick Sharps stats. You just make-up/change things to suit your argument.
It's 6'1, 201, not 6'1 205. I will say again, with margin of error, Helm is the mean.
I do agree that size does not mean everything (I wouldn't say it means nothing, it definitely helps). I would still rather have Helm then Martin if the $ is the same. But I think Helm will want about 3mil per, for about 4-5 years which I dont want the Wings dishing out.
