As far as takeing hits being close to the boards is always good if your 2 feet away from the boards and then you get hit your gonna be hurt. Size isn't as big as a factor, its harder to hit smaller kids because there lower. They usually just get pushed over its not a big collision where they get plastered.
What gives me a bigger headache: taking a head-down, full-speed hit or having to decipher your grammar?
