I know many grumpy, low IQ, coches would not agree with this -- but I am not sure if I would recommend many of the "pro's" curves for kids.

I actually think kids need more curve then the pro's. For a pro like Crosby its very important to be able to always controll the puck extremely fast and use the one option that is available to him, not to mention that passes at the NHL level the passes are so hard that they'll easily just bounce up into the air if you have too much hoo.

I've seen how many Swede's for example cut back on their curve when going to the NHL, its understandable and adviseable. But we aren't talking about the NHL level here.

A kid do not have that need. Really. I think it would be a lot more important for a kid to be able to shoot well and stickhandle well then make the ultra simple fast pass.
