it was pretty good actually. As stated, 2001, 2002 with the crops from '83 and '84 were good years for us. M.Koivu, T.Ruutu, Filppula, J.Jokinen, Pitkänen, Lehtonen... and more.
But from there, we had a long slouch for the next seven or eight years. 91-borns were the next class that really showed promise since '84. Somebody royally screwed up with the methods of development for those classes born in the late 80s.
Thats why I wasnt drafted!
1 They banned slap shots and hits from junior games untill they were too old
2 They kepth teaching how important its to play "the system", they basicly teached grinding for everyone and teached everyone only avoid risks not do do anything fancy
3 They did not respect individual skill
4 It was "kaikki pelaa" mentality
679D I didint have granlund like talent
