right off the bat, your agent isn't doing a very good job for you. the first thing he should tell you is that going qmjhl doesn't mean giving up on school. can't really complain though, I guess you get what you pay for in this life.

We are not paying a single penny. It would make my kid ineligible for the NCAA. They do certainly hope that he gets drafted into the NHL - that will be when they make their money. Right now, its us asking questions and seeking advice from them.
so, we're to believe that these agents work for free for a kid and his parents from the age of 14 or 15, up to the age of 18 (that's 3-4 years of free advice and work), all in the hopes that the kid gets drafted into the nhl and plays pro? that's a ridiculously risky business proposition for the agents. lets just say if they presented that business model to the dragons den on cbc, they'd be laughed out of the building.

without getting too nosey, have you signed a contract of any sort with this agent? is everything in writing, with details of what duties he'll provide for you over the next few years, and exactly what he gets paid should your son make it into the nhl?
