It doesn't hold precedent over skating, vision and hands ;however, it is an important tiebreaker when those skills are similar. If you are 6-5 and you can skate as well as a guy that is under 6 feet tall, you have the advantage (This is not a Hamilton-Reilly comparison). It's just that people are refusing to accept that height is advantage. Some posters go as far as to say it hinders you. Merely trying to shoot down that nonsense.
