I don't know how much this may tie in, but smaller players may feel the need to work harder due to the stipulation that it's much harder for them to break in to the NHL. A greater portion of bigger players may coast, if you will, due to the fact they can have roles on size alone without being legitimate scoring threats. As Fitzy pointed out.

I think the data could still be interesting if done on a larger sample size in the future. Especially if you did it post-lockout to a good number of years later, 20 or so.
