General rules of thumb are ok. But there are exceptions.
World class player Slava Bykow was captain of the russian team in the late eighties and early nineties. He played with a stick that ended above his head. He was amazing.
His son also seems to use quite lengthy sticks:
Then there's is this 10 y.o. kid. He's the best skater, best stickhandler and best sniper in his category. His stick ends above his eyes. Everybody seeing him play, tries to play with a longer stick. He's screwing up a whole generation of hockey players around here, but it works for him...
