What are the chances I'll ever see him again to get a chance to talk with him.
the answer is Paul Coffey

Holy geez, he answered my question, well he put "That's a hard question, I don't have an answer for that"

Not the answer I was looking for, how can he not model his play after a NHLer? I mean don't all AHLers do?

It's probably a good idea to get an education too, as a fall back option.

Some guys like having a back up plan in case hockey doesn't work out.

He is going to university to work absolutely to work on his hockey skills, not his aggressive skills. He also considers his education important.

edit as all of you have mentioned.

Some kid just joined the Stampeders from the 49ers preseason team. Brought his Masters in Engineering with him at age 24. That's a back up plan, Engineering in Calgary ...

Anyway, you know by 20 if you are getting a contract and if you've done CHL hockey they'll pay for your education, while you are playing and after. One is not exclusive of the other. Quite a few join university teams after and continue on with the education. And a signing bonus for better players would cover off the cost anyway. It isn't like 24 getting your 1st. degree is old.

Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.

On the Leafs site, it has it listed there is a practice today @ 11:30.

http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=585936

I don't know if I should go there for it to see if I can get in.

To my understanding why would they have it listed if it's not open to the public.

I can't make it to the game/ watch it, I have a stupid staff meeting tonight.
