    What sort of size does your favorite team have in the system, as in prospects that are NHL material in some role or form.

    New Jersey:

    Aaron Voros 6`4 195 - (3rd line potential)
    Ahren Nittel 6`3 225 - (2nd line/PP potential)
    Barry Tallackson 6`4 212 - (2nd line potential)
    Ivan Khomutov 6`3 205 - (3rd line potential)
    Tuomas Pihlman 6`3 210 - (3rd/4th line potential,leader)
    Jason Ryznar 6`4 204 - (4th liner, shutdown line)
    James Massen 6`2 220 - (4th line mucker at best)
    Travis Zajac 6`2/3 205 - (1st line center, all situations)

    Carolina has some huge dman coming up... not all great potential though. Very few prospects to speak of in general, too.

    Andrew Ladd 6'2 200 (2nd line LW)
    Casey Borer 6'2 197 (4th-5th)
    Brett Carson 6'4 220 (4th-5th)
    Aaron Dawson 6'5 220 (3rd pairing)
    Sean Curry 6'4 230 (could play 4th line W - now plays D/W)
    Matej Trojovsky 6'5 220 (enforcer)

    Vancouver is lacking in large prospects...

    Ryan Kesler 6'2 205
    Marc-Andre Bernier 6'3 218
    Alex Edler 6'3 194

    Leafs are really hurtin for size are biggest prospects that have some potential are goalies

    Ford 6-4
    Pogge 6-3

    With Harrison 6-3 200+, and Sagat 6-3 190 ish having size but rather limited potential as in 6-7 D-man and 4th line Winger.

    The Rangers prospects are pretty damn big. Kinda scary considering there just starting to load up on prospects. They also have probably 2 of the best forwards over 6-5...

    Hugh Jessiman 6-5 225 (RW) - 1st line
    Bruce Graham 6-6 220 (C) - 2nd
    Marcus Jonasen 6-4 220 (LW) - 2nd
    David Liffiton 6-3 210 (D) - top 4
    Jake Taylor 6-4 210 (D) - 5th/6th D
    Lee Farladeau 6-3 200 (C) - 3rd/4th line
    Nate Guenin 6-3 205 (D) 6th D
    Fedor Tyutin 6-2 200 (D) - Top 2
    Al Montoya 6-2 200 (G) - Starter
    Garth Murray 6-2 205 (C) - 3rd liner/PK
    Bryce Lampman 6-2 200 (D) - Top 4
    Chris Holt 6-2 220 (G) - NHL backup
    Jordan Foote 6-3 200 (LW) - N/A
    Mike Walsh 6-2 200 (RW) - N/A

    ^^ potential

    Atlanta has a ton of size on the blueline but not so much in the forward ranks.

    Lane Manson - 6'9"
    Boris Valabik - 6'7"
    Paul Flache - 6'6"
    Brian Sipotz - 6'6"
    Braydon Coburn - 6'5"

    All have fairly solid frames. None are beanpoles. Potential is another question, though. Only Coburn is a sure-fire NHLer. Manson and Flache I don't have much hope for. Valabik's a high-risk/high-return type, and Sipotz has been a pleasant surprise in the AHL as a first-year pro. He may make the NHL yet.

    You might want to also add Zach Parise, who plays like he's 6' 3'' 220 lbs. :yo: :clap: :yo:

    To project Jessiman on 1st line is a stretch at this point. Will either be hit or miss, I predict miss IMO.

    Like it or not that it is his upside. A guy with his size, skating ability, and skills can't be considered anything but first line material. It's not like he's Adam Creighton.......... :sarcasm:

    Chicago's big ones: HTs&WTs off the Blackhawks official website:

    Olli Malmivaara (D) 6'7 220
    Markko Antilla (RW) 6'7 200 * reportedly 6'9 when they drafted him,so until he's
    actually at a Hawks' rookie camp and measured,we
    don't know for sure whether it is 6'7 or 6'9...

    Dustin Byfuglien (D/F) 6'3 263 ** reportedly his weight got more under control
    this season in Prince George (245-250?)

    Brian Bickell (LW) 6'3 213 ...I think he is up another inch to 6'4 now...
    Adam Berti (LW) 6'3 193
    Cam Barker (D) 6'3 213
    Brent Seabrook (D) 6'3 215
    Jared Walker (C) 6'3 183
    Troy Brower (LW) 6'3 210
    Michael Grenzy (D) 6'3 199
    Joanas Nordqqvist (C) 6'3 206


    And in Norfolk (AHL):

    Anton Babchuk (D) 6'5 202
    Mikhail Yakoubov (C) 6'3 210
    Michal Barinka(D) 6'3 200

    Rene Bourque (LW) 6'2 205 *** well that doesn't quite make the 6'3 & over group--
    but he looks closer to 6'3 220 to me...

    Zack Fitzgerald - 6'2" 205 - 3/4 d-man
    Trevor Bryne - 6'3" 220 - 5/6 d-man
    David Fredriksson - 6'2" 214 - 4th line wing
    D.J. King - 6'3" 230 - 4th line wing

    petec1978* Guest

    Vasily Koshechkin: 6'6" 210 lbs
    Brian Eklund: 6'5" 205 lbs
    Gerald Coleman: 6'4" 190 lbs
    Jonathan Boutin: 6'2" 206 lbs
    Karri Ramo: 6'2" 192 lbs

    And that's just the Lightning's goalie prospects. I hear goalie coach Jeff Reese is looking for a good 6th man to come in off the bench now that 6'4" 205 lb Joe Pearce has quit hockey. :)

    D-men:
    Art Femenella: 6'7" 240 lbs
    Andy Rogers: 6'5" 206 lbs
    Matt Smaby: 6'5" 205 lbs
    Henrik Bergfors: 6'4" 225 lbs
    Mike Egener: 6'4" 213 lbs
    Jay Rosehill: 6'3" 195 lbs
    Paul Ranger: 6'2.5" 215 lbs
    Brady Greco: 6'2.5" 198 lbs
    Gerard Dicaire: 6'2" 230 lbs

    Forwards:
    Karri Akkanen: 6'6" 202 lbs
    Andre Deveaux: 6'5" 220 lbs
    Evgeni Artukhin: 6'4" 254 lbs
    Dennis Packard: 6'4" 234 lbs
    Brandon Elliot: 6'4" 225 lbs
    Adam Henrich: 6'4" 220 lbs
    Alex Polushin: 6'4" 200 lbs
    Mark Tobin: 6'3" 206 lbs
    JF Soucy: 6'3" 205 lbs
    John Toffey: 6'3" 200 lbs
    Dusty Collins: 6'3" 196 lbs
    Jan Zapletal: 6'3" 187 lbs
    Dimitry Kazionov: 6'3" 185 lbs
    Alexei Glukhov: 6'3" 176 lbs
    Nick Tarnasky: 6'2" 233 lbs
    Ryan Craig: 6'2" 220 lbs
    Darren Reid: 6'2" 205 lbs
    Zbynek Hrdel: 6'2" 194 lbs

    Bottom line: if you aren't at least 6'2" and hovering around 2 bills the Lightning probably won't take you. Granted some of these guys don't have a snowball's chance of making the league, but we've got some big big guys coming through the ranks.

    Don't forget 6'6" goalie prospect Dan Turple. He may never make the NHL, but he doesn't leave a lot of open space to shoot at....

    Yeah, I forgot about Turple. Kari Lehtonen is no Oompa Loompa either.
