I say this not to debate which element is the most important, but to emphasize when choosing a stick, all factors should be considered.
I agree in theory. He'll shoot to the best of his ability, he just won't gain any advantages from the stick itself.

Brett Hull used a 70-75 flex stick, I believe Ovechkin uses something close to that. If you went strictly by height and weight both would be using 110 flex or greater.
