Everybody I've talked was not in favour of it. In my opinion it also depends on the age of thye kid. IMHO there is a bigger difference between a 8 year old and a 9 year old then, say between a 13 and 14 year old. My sone was born in 98 and quite a number of his former teammates from 2 years ago, played a year up last year. None of them stood out, were for the most part on the 3rd line and as a result didn't get the most ice time and didn't develop as much as they could've.
One of his better friends played a year up AAA last year and really doesn't stand out in his own age group this.
Remember, especially at a younger age, it's all about development. Not wins & losses.
