There is a point, but the point is that the small guys have to be super talented and/or incredibly hard workers to even get drafted, thus the small sample size. That will make the success rate of top 6 forwards look better.
The fact is, though, picking a small guy isn't going to lead to a top 6 forward everytime, just like picking a 6 foot tall guy isn't going to lead to a top 6 forward everytime.
