The question would be - when the size difference is even larger, wouldn't that make you feel even more uncomfortable out on the ice?
Personally, my first year of Pee Wee was the toughest. The size ratio was much more in my favor in my 2nd year of Pee Wee.
As a first year bantam, I was able to finally play with full confidence because all those biggest, strongest 2nd year Bantam kids were already harvested into the Major Bantam program.
One of the big things to remember...Pee Wee doesn't have "AAA" hockey and you tend to get a wide range of skill & size ratios on the ice at the same time. It gets levelled off much more in Bantam.
Obviously this is ONLY a "personal experience"...but...its an HONEST experience...rather than the BS so many people are spewing in protest about this rule change.
Guys going on about how they learned so much MORE by taking/giving body checks in Pee Wee...Im not buying it. It is simply NOT something that is CRITICAL at that age.
