I'd agree this could be part of it. Look no further than Christopher Nihlstorp for the Texas Stars. Lots of success in Sweden but I can't see him being effective in the NHL due to his coverage of the net and the quality of shooter. He is 6'3, but this game in particular made it apparent his (singular - take the low part of the net) style may not be a good fit when matched up to the quality of shooter he'd see in the NHL. Probably reminds me of Conz because of the right hand catching...

See Highlights OKC vs Texas Nov 21

Particularly at the 4:00 mark, Schultz buckles him. He doesn't even move. Perfect shot. Regardless, he's no where near making a play on a shot going in the top third of the net. At 3:25 Hartikainen (sp?) gives you another example.
