I think the obvious fact is that size matters more, especially on the 3rd & 4th lines & on defence & now in goal too. Smaller players have to be very, very good to make it to the NHL & some still don't make it like Locke.
You have to be a certain height to ride the roller coaster but if you can't handle the fear it's not going to matter how tall you are.
