It is not completely irrelevant, but it is true that there is not a perfect correlation between weight and performance. I remember one year, Owen Nolan (then with the Sharks) was in the best shape of his life and added like 15 lbs of muscle. He got one of his worse seasons because he couldn't roof the puck in as much as previous years. It was known that he lost coordination due to his muscle-weight gain.
