Of course, that kid was some scrub named Steve. Last I heard, he was playing for Tampa and scoring the occasional goal.
Oh, you mean Steve Stankos?

There are guys in the NHL Datysuk could do that to. The elite superstars in the NHL are on another level, don't look at them.. Look at the bottom feeders of the NHL and compare how much better those guys are over the average beer leaguer.

Chris Dingman, the worst player for the Lightning when they won the Stanley Cup is playing in the top level at one of the top rinks in the US. He dominates, he's playing with and against former non-NHL pro players and extremely good D-I players... and I mean he DOMINATES, as in twice the number of goals as the rest of his team at the end of his last full season. The league is actually soo good that they only have five teams in it because the majority of the college players around can't keep up.

I played just random shinney hockey with a couple of now NHL players back when they were in Juniors. We were a good AAA girl's team. We could "keep up to them" fitness and skating wise, but everything else?
