That's what you should focus on regardless of who you are playing against.
Parents and coaches who want to win at all cost is what is wrong in minor hockey.
Relax it's just a game
Actually no, I wasnt looking for a true "scouting report" to game plan a win with. I didnt think anyone could be that stupid...maybe next time I will use emoticons.
I was just wondering what type of programs we will be facing and how good the teams are relative to other AAA programs.
For the record we always emphasize skill development and never sacrifice anything for winning....no shortening the bench, no PP's, no PK's, etc.
By all means though, continue on your "save the kids" rant.....and for the record it is ok to teach kids *how* to win and *how* to lose as good sports. If done right, they benefit from it. Have fun handing out trophies.
