Pretty much.

Like I said I play in a league that has a few guys that have played junior or minor pro in their respective countries. They are streets ahead of guys who have played AAA etc.

For example one of my friends on my team played junior with Kopecky, Marcel and Marian Hossa and Gaborik.

Hes lights out, even after so many year out of his prime and playing casual amateur hockey. But looking at his stats from back then and even his play now hes a big level below these guys.

Thats not to say politics doesn't enter into the equation of course it does.
