Re: There will be blood

So they are trying to grow the game in the largest potential market in the world and this guy is upset because he thinks the kid isn't good enough? And in the U.S. the difference in making it and not making it is about 75% connections; where your dad played, who your uncle is, which teams your parents could afford to put you on . . .and this guy is upset about Chinese hockey????

There is plenty to be angry about right here.

Seriously, how about all the jobs lost to China? That is a real issue! I wish the kid (RY) all the best! Has more money than god but still working hard and chasing his dream. How can we find fault with that? Because he his dad has connections and pull? PUHLEASE!!

Re: There will be blood

A dad with 'connections and pull,' a hockey tradition unlike any other.
