Funny story about that; back in Midget we had former NHL fourth liner Bill Berg (You probably havent heard of him, played for the Leafs/Rangers/Isles/Sens to name a few) out at our practises running the conditioning drills and as a pro playing with other NHL'ers it looked liked he had cement in his gloves. When he would join the scrimmage with us it was out of this world how well he could handle the puck, especially for a guy who was known purely for hitting and fighting. If you play in the NHL on a consistent basis then you're pretty damn good.
