All you Canadians in this thread are missing the point what I am talking about. I am talking about physical play hurting a lot of kids in a different way, making them quit hockey at young age one way or another as well as not developing certain skills at the young age. You are telling me that basically your system is fine. Well I ddin't make this up, it was suggested to me by a Canadian, who played hockey himself and wanted all his kids play hockey as well. Players like Datsyuk would probably never make it in Canada. Skinny little kid, very late bloomer, he probably would have quit right after exposed to hitting. Or perhaps he could have made it further but he would have never had puckhandling skills that he has now - that is all I am saying.
