One of the reasons I backed off of here was because some parents/friends make it a real grind to post on here.

I've said a few constructive things about a 96 born defenceman and get responces back instantly lol. Its expected to an extent, but scouts are not emotionally involved like family and friends are, so they have a better read on things then others. I also think that some of those family/friends would be better served to back off and allow those players to see some constructive criticism, as the only way you get better is by working on your faults. Blaming coaches and ice time online is not going to make the player any better IMO.

With regards to DeFarias, hes a great skater, but does have work to do in other aspects of his game. He will be a mid second round pick IMO. Maybe higher, but can't see it.
Breath of FRESH AIR, THANK YOU. Trust me, everyone wants to see more of you here.
