The reason Mason Raymond did not look much different than Roy is because he's not 6". He's about 5"10 and a half.

And lastly; Yes. The threshold for height to be successful in the NHL is probably about 5'8 - 5'9. In all pro sports there's a physical minimum each player has to take. (There's always rare exceptions) So what's hilarious is the why wouldn't the min height requirement for a greatly successful career be about 5'9 ????! So much facepalm here.
Raymond is a legit 6 feet, Roy is more like 5'8''. Seen them both.
