I post on another message board for goalies where a prominent goalie coach posts. I've heard him said many times that unless your playing in the most obscure league, you will be noticed for your talents.
I admit that it doesn't help when one reads/hears stories about coaches benching players and telling parents they need to get their kid to hockey camp, ect, otherwise they won't play.

I think sometimes a number of these coaches also have to get of their seeming daydream that they're going to be picked up by an NHL team.
