There are a lot less crazy/scamming advisers or agents out there then crazy hockey parents. There's nothing worse then a crazy hockey parent. At least an agent or adviser usually has some credibility in the hockey world and can benefit a young player with their connections. Hockey parents who try to do it often get in the way of their kids. It's really a shame for the kids. I'm sure there's players every year who could be a late 7th or 8th round pick in the Q draft but they go crazy, calling GM's, pestering scouts at the rinks, and pushing their kids names in hockey circles and it just rubs everyone the wrong way and they avoid the kid completely. Unfortunately those crazy hockey parents never learn and keep it up. It's those people that need the advisers/agents more then anyone lol
