4 inches isn't a bit.
I can't think of one proven NHL defensman under 5'10".
Ryan Ellis is 5'9" but his offensive skill set is incredible, Hicketts isn't there offensively, but skates better by quite a margin.
Handling 6'2" 185lbs boys in junior is a helluva lot different than handling Ryan Getzlaf if you know what I mean.
