Hell, even if it was the #2 or 3 sport.

It would be full of 6 1/2 footers who were explosive, coordinated, and could skate like the wind.

I think if these measurables were really all that important in hockey we would already see tons of players with these attributes. Not saying being 'superhuman' doesn't help but I don't think it is anywhere near as important in hockey as it is in a sport like (American) Football.
