I think what they where getting at is, in hockey like other sports a lot of gimmic gear (training aids) seem to get sold that promise everything from turning your kid into the fastest kid on ice to making the kid the next Syd Crosby over night. A lot of parents with the kids best interest at heart buy these gimmics and try to use them on their Novice/Atom/Pee Wee kids when most of the kids haven't developed physically the muscles/and muscle memory to properly use these aids. Skate weights fall into this category. Getting the kid to learn the basics first, build the muscle memory and then the muscles should be the priority.
