Reading the above post you would have to wonder why someone who is a scout who has discovered this hidden gem would go on any site and draw any attention to what this individual percieves as the best BWC goalie.

There is a huge difference between Tier One and Tier 2, and there is a huge difference between Tier One and playing in tournamnets is Alberta.

You would have to think that the goaile in question was not good enough in tryouts.

Good for him for playing well in tier 2.

Just imagine that a team that has allowed 4 goals in 12 games, 11 goals in 20 league/tiering games gave everyone a chance by cutting the best goalie.

In reality the kid is playing where he should be and at the level he should be at.

Bottom line is that these kids are 14 years old (IMO still to young for a draft) and most just wont be the same player at 17.....only a handful will pass the test of time.
The only good thing about the draft is that you are religated to a team until someone decides wether or not you have become the player they forcasted you to be. Then they either keep you, trade you, or drop you all together. Thats the reality!
