Does being taller make skating harder?

My 2 cents, the difference is coordination. Smaller guys move their limbs less distance away from their bodies, this keeps them balanced. Balanced skating = good skating, less time trying to regain equilibrium and more time moving towards where they want to be.
While there are great tall skaters on the NHL, they are exceptions. We have to remember, these are the top 700 or so players in the world.
