Only a thought.
The mentor program we're looking at involves rookie posters moving in with some of the more seasoned veterans for a week. They will eat what they eat, sleep when they sleep and watch what they post. Then they will get limited posting privileges (4th line minutes) until they earn the coach's trust.

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
