The top sixes of cup winners and finalists in recent years aren't significantly bigger than average. They tend not to have much more than a couple players clearing 200 pounds.

The Bruins for example had a pair of monsters in Horton and Lucic, but the rest of their top six was largely average. Flyers, Blackhawks, Penguins and Wings weren't particularly large either.

They are however, significantly better hockey players than average, which should tell you were the focus should actually be on.
