You don't go from a naturally inherent RNH bean pole to a naturally big boned 195 lb Bo Horvat in some sort of miraculous DNA bone mass shape shifting that turns you into a natural born that way stump like Domi or Smyl unless you make like SOB and hit the Roxy on a regular basis or Roid up, give your mullet a shake.
I get you point. Yeah, I think you'd have to analyze his skeletal frame and project whether his body could support an extra 20lbs, naturally. Also, the kid's metabolism also plays a factor. Some people, no matter how much they eat can't maintain weight. MSL is small in stature but is "thick and a wide lower body - tree trunk legs like Crosby. Gretzky on the other hand, had a slight body frame, but he had the advantageous of having hockey IQ that was BEYOND GREAT.
