I commend them for wanting to give the kids the best, even if I don't agree with the method.
Next will be ice size...to go to left field.
At this age group they will have played on NHL size, Olympic size and under sized through-out their time in hockey.
The media will jump on it because they mostly cover NHL in Canada with little knowledge of community rinks where these kids learnt to play.
I'm sure Nathan MacKinnon is used to fog and cloud. Huberdeau after 4 years in Saint John where businesses advertiise "outside the fog belt" must be scared of the sun
Talking points and built in excuses is all.
