And I know, the “who’s taller?” debate just won’t seem to go away with these two. Well, that image above was shared by Sauce Hockey this morning, and I kinda love it. Mostly I love how amused the fans are by the two lining up for the draw.
Zdeno Chara is a full 6’9″ (tallest player in the NHL), while diminutive Sabres’ forward Nathan Gerbe is just a lil’ guy, at 5’5″ (shortest player in the NHL).
We should note, of course, that this is nothing new to Gerbe. His teammate, John Scott, is fairly sizable human as well, at 6’8″. Buddy comedy writers are lining up around the block.
