For some kids it's almost natural to be playing in the NHL.

For someone who really had to step up their game when they were 13 or 14 it may really seem like making the NHL was next to impossible. But for those kids who have been playing since they were 3, and play the highest level of hockey available their whole lives, the NHL is like just another league to them.

Don't get me wrong, I know it's still really hard to make it. But for those who've been playing a long time it's not AS big of a stretch to think about making it as it would be for me when I started playing at age 9 (House league at that).

If you know what I mean

But yeah even OHLers seem really skilled to me, which is odd since just last year I was watching the '94 AAA Tryouts here in Brampton and the kids were nowhere close to OHL level, and this year they're getting drafted
