They are pretty sick.. I think the thing that seperates NHL'ers from those in the A or other minor leagues is the ability to get off a 90mph slapper in a split second. Theres plenty of people who can shoot 90mph but only a select few who can do it in a fraction of a section and accurately.
Actually, I think the biggest difference is the 'mental game'. There's probably tons of AHLers and even ECHLers that have better physical tools than a lot of NHLers but lack the hockey sense/game understanding/poise/decision making to take it to the next level.
