I played with a guy who led an ECHL team in penalty minutes and hadn't played in a few years. He was the best player on the ice. Just took the puck away from guys and made saucer passes right to the tape of people, and did it without much any effort. I've also played with guys who played really low pro- not even ECHL, and they dominated.

Pros are good. Pros are really really good. Top end NHLers have 20 year careers. Average is probably about 10. To maintain a roster of 20 guys you'll need about 2 rookies on average. 60 players making the NHL every year. Out of hundreds of thousands.

You have to be pretty damn good.
