The difference between 5'9'' and 6'1'' or even 6' is a lot more drastic. The goalie that is 5'9'' is going to have to be light years ahead in terms of skill than the goalie that is 6' because if the shorter goalie is even slightly better or even they will take the bigger guy every time.

This applies with every position, except the Red Wings who love to draft those small skilled euro's
