Tall trees invade Syracuse


Courtesy of Lindsay Nelson, I'm conjecturing that the Syracuse Crunch ownership has a thing for Zdeno Chara wannabes on tryout contracts:

[Defenseman Libor Ustrnul is] listed at 6-5, 230. They must have lifted that from his high school yearbook. Ustrnul, 27, looks not a puck shy of 250, and the 6-5 could be from shoulder to shoulder.
...
And here's the scary thing: Ustrnul wasn't even the tallest player on the ice Wednesday. That honor went to 6-6, 230-pound forward Justin Lutz, here on a tryout contract.
Dang.
