It's another The Hockey News snub of an Avalanche player.
This time, The Hockey News put out a list of the Top 10 Little Guys (players 5'9" and under) and Marek Svatos is absent from the list.
If anyone thinks Nigel Dawes has shown himself to be a better player than Svatos, raise your hand.
Didn't think so.
It can only be forgiven if Svatos is listed as taller than 5'9" in the 2009 NHL Official Guide & Record Book, which the author used as the definitive source for measurements.
UPDATE: Alanah pointed me to NHL.com's listing of Marek Svatos which puts him at 5'10".
I assume that the data at NHL.com is the same as what's in the Official Guide & Record Book so it appears THN is off the hook.
Once I get down to Denver, we'll have to go back-to-back and see if he really is 5'10".
