That is not the argument. What some people are trying to argue is that height is not at all important in the total package of a defensemen. Some even said that it is a hindrance to be taller. Sureves and I merely used statistics to show that since the majority of defensemen are tall, it is a trait that scouts look at in a positive light when evaluating talent.
