I doubt there's tons of players out there who worked hard and concentrated only on hockey for years who couldn't make an ECHL team.
correct, hockey is a pretty basic sport, sharpen your skating so you can skate like the wind and you are already halfway there. Stick skill come with practice, but its fun. If you are naturally gifted it helps too. Ive always had a very good awareness in sports i played, hockey came very natural to me (it doesnt hurt that i was built from the legs up), so if a person has a good understanding of the game, good physical genes, and a good work ethic, they can definitely make it to a lower level league
