I don't recall him being overly big or small, but it's one thing to be physical against other kids the same age at WJCs or against NHLers in a camp environment, but the NHL regular season is a different animal.
Does he have the size to keep that physical element in his game against opposing NHL players and not get worn down?
He's listed at 6'0 and 190. Unless he grew 2 inches this year, that 6'0 mark is wrong. He was staring up at everyone in September.
Letang is getting fiesty and dishing it out a bit this year, I'm not sure he'll be able to go head to head with some of the monsters in the east, but his stick and hands are so lightning fast that he'll either create a ton of turnovers or push everyone outside.
They might be able to knock him around, but you can't score if you can't keep the puck.
