3 pages and only one mention of the key ingredient in energy drinks. Caffeine.

I drink them before games, because they have caffeine in them simmilar to a lot of NHL players will have coffee before games. As with all things, if you do them in excess (4 - 6 cans???) you will suffer from negative effects. Giving these things to kids is probably not a good idea either, even were they not playing in games.

However for an older guy taking the ice late at night after working all day, it's a little pick me up that sits in the stomach better than coffee. I haven't hit the wall so to speak but that's probably because I exercise off the ice and try to keep a reasonable diet. So I guess putting it that way and like posted earlier, taking care of yourself seems to be the best.
