And of of my teachers was an awesome player in college but he was to small to get to the next level.
And the coach of our Midget AA team played in the AHL in the 80's but was not big enough to get to the NHL.
And their is one guy that started playing in the Q last year but he only 5'7'' but is skill are amazing but is head is a real problem he can't take the pressure and came back home after christman. He went back this fall but he got benched and after the game he quit the team.
All the guys from my hometown have lots of talent but they don't want to go play outside the town or they go but then they come back because they miss their moms.
what's wrong with a young man wanting to stay at home with family ? absolutely nothing.
if the nhl entry draft age was changed to 20, it would take this pressure off of 15, 16, and 17 year olds.
