not sure if thread is beaten-to-death meme (CONDRA STAMINA LOLZ) but in the event it is serious, my experience in a few years of playing drop in hockey has had me meet two guys who had an NHL try-out. One was an ECHLer, the other had just started playing in the AHL. Needless to say both were miles better than any other player on the ice. In any event, both said effectively the same thing, that they were just as fast and had just as good shots as the NHL players, but that the difference between an NHLer and a minor leaguer is that NHLers can make snap decisions while AHLers waste that valuable second or two after taking or making a pass in order to move or shoot the puck.
