our kids just aren't as good as many people seem to think they are, end of story
Your right they aren't as good. Talent does not equal good. That was my point. They are one dimensional offensive players. Outside of nuge none of them have any semblance of a two way game and none of them drive the net hard enough to get greasy goals required to compete in the NHL. Talent is the least of our concerns it's getting that talent to actually play as a unit in a functional team format that is the problem.
