Players in that ~5'8/9" and shorter have much less slack when it comes to sticking with a NHL club. They usually have to be outstanding at something to get a shot. It may not be fair, but that is how it is. I'm not advocating that thought, but the odds are against Agozzino. In his favor though if any organization likes short centers it is the Avs.
Boris Valabik had no reason to ever be on NHL ice (or any sheet of ice in general) other than the fact that he was 6'7" yet he was given plenty of chances to carve out a role.
