Because NHL dmen would be scared of retaliation and limit their tactics to poke checking? Or because the big guys would block for the little guys, NFL style? In reality, I don't see any of this happening.

Forwards have to create their own space. The exception being when a forward is so strong on the puck that he attracts multiple defenders - but size is not the only way of getting that done.
