THN Top Ten Little Guys Snubs Marek Svatos

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's listing of Marek Svatos which puts him at 5'10".

I assume that the data at 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".
