    The following is a list of the smaller/est players in both the AHL and already drafted CHL (IE no Crosby). Namely we're looking at 5'9" and under.

    Rank them in order from who'll be best to "meh who cares". Who will be the next Theo Fleury, Brian Gionta, Steve Sullivan, Eric Boguniecki, or Martin St.Louis?
    ---------------------------
    Mike Cammalleri (LA) 5'9"
    Derek Roy (Buffalo) 5'9"
    Trevor Daley (Dal) 5'9"
    Jordon Tootoo (Nash) 5'9"
    Marek Svatos (Colorado) 5'9"
    Eric Perrin (TB) 5'9" (Somewhat overage now)
    Noah Clarke (LA) 5'9"
    Tony Salmelainen (Edm) 5'9"
    Petr Kanko (LA) 5'9"
    Corey Locke (Mtl) 5'9"
    Ryan Kraft (NYI) 5'9"
    Simon Gamache (Nash) 5'9"

    Nigel Dawes (NYR) 5'8"
    Tony Voce (Phi) 5'8"
    Ben Eaves (Pitt) 5'8"
    Brandon Reid Van) 5'8"

    Jeff 'The Tank' Panzer (Columbous) 5'7"
    Chris Bourque (Wash) 5'7"
    ----------------------------

    I'd say my top 6 would be:
    Cammalleri / Roy / Tootoo / Dawes / Daley / Svatos

    Wow, I never knew Daley was that short.
    I'd take him out of that group.

    If these guys are midgets, does that mean the average size of people here are midgets?

    I'm 6'3" so yes most of the world are midgets to me. I think though that 5'8"-5'10" is on the short side for an NHL player. I know we've all seen Ronning and Fleury play but those types of players are few and far between. I was afraid using the term "midget" might bring about some moral outrage from some sort of right wing soap box orator.. none yet....

    Reading these lists, Dawes is ridiculously underrated.

    Im thinking it's because most of the people that are picked ahead of him, have had great junior careers like him or have proven they can play at a higher level in the ahl. Although I too am suprised not to see him on many lists.

    You know what we should do rank them and actually compare them to someone for how good you think they will be since just ranking them doesnt mean much.... And yes i'm 6'6 so most people are small to me and i'm still growing

    My list
    1) Cammalleri
    2) Roy
    3) Svatos
    The first 3 are pretty self explanitory, Camms 2 tremendous WJC's has scored at every level including in the NHL when he ws given top 6 ice time. Roy has played well in the ahl and so far in his brief NHL career. Svatos looked amazing in the playoffs for Colorado last year although injuries remain a concern.
    4) Locke
    So much Talent, and an amazing work ethic to go with it. If his speed keeps improving at a high klip look out.
    5) Kanko
    Not as much offensive upside as some but should become a really good third line agitator
    6) Gamache
    Third great year in a row in the ahl for Gamache, Skill is there, but will skating hold him back?? Eitherway deserves a shot with Nashvell when NHL resumes
    7) Dawes
    Great scorer with a tremendous shot, skating and consistency are his biggest drawbacks, but has all the tools. Not proven at the AHL level like those above.
    8) Tootoo
    Already in the NHL. Although I think he was rushed a bit. What you see is what you get, a chippy forward who provides a lot of energy and hustle, may also develope into a 30 to 40 point third line energy guy.
    9) Reid
    Has played well in the AHL and shown a lot in the NHL in his short stints. Will probaly play in the NHL, just not with Vancouver.
    10) Daley
    Tremendous speed, but very small for a dman, may have trouble with bigger stronger NHL forwards. Decision making with the puck also needs a lot of work, but the tools are there to be a good bottom 4 dman.

    Martin St. Pierre should get some consideration.
