I was wondering. If you have a PeeWee AAA or Bantam AAA team should you skate them to hell. My theory is the ones who want to make it to the NHL will stick it out and the lazy ones will quit. Is this a good theory. In Cape Breton the coaching is so bad it isn't funny. There is no skating, no proper training and no coaching teaching positioning right.

I am only 19 now and there is no way I could get a AAA team. When I do in a few years do you advise me to skate the hell out of the kids in tryouts and take the hardest workers and work with them or take the talented players and hope they develop a work ethic. My main goal is to get the kids at the hight of their development and make them good Junior players.
