It's just that the proper stick length will allow you or maybe force you to keep that deep knee bend close to 90 degree. More knee bend means more power in your stride.

The stick length will not force you to get a deep knee bend, only you will force yourself to get a deep knee bend. A stick isn't a magic wand. How many guys have a short stick and are bent over like they're tying their shoes. Stop acting like stick length is the determining factor in knee bend.

And FYI, I use a shorter stick, so don't act like you've seen me play, thanks.
