Height is meaningless. It's size and strength.
Arm length matters more then height...(and no, arm length is not an exact ratio to height)
If player A is 6'1,190 and player b is 5'11,190...there isn't much of an advantage to anyone. They could have relatively the same arm length.
Height does nothing when fighting for position. Weight and strength does,however. If anything, being taller makes you easier to knock over because you have a higher center of gravity. Example, weircioch.
It's mostly weight and strength...but that being said, the taller you are, the better chance you have of being heavier.
You can be 6'2 and a twig...you'll get push off the puck...you can be 5'11 and thick, and you won't get pushed off the puck.
