None of those kids will ever move to another country to play hockey, most are Prep kids who have everything handed to them (not hockey related)..big difference from Prep/Home hand holding and moving in with a family that you can barely communicate with.
Did Elite hockey have a kid drafted to the Q? I don't think they have posted it enough times....lol
Actually a smart pick. Teams know what type of kid would accept a spot up there and credit them for identifying good candidates. Not everyone ends up at BU
you do also get school out of the QMJHL. For each year that you are in the league the team/CHL pays for a year of Canadian University of which there are some very good schools and great hockey programs as well which are mainly made up of ex CHL players now.
Not necessarily a bad path for kids from south of the border.
The little dog will never be allowed over the border!!!! Quebec is about to get some entertainment.
That pick was a head scratcher for sure...
08's are stacked!!!!!!
Comical how kids that barely played for their HS team could possibly been drafted? Serious?
Honestly its not that hard to get drafted in the Q nowadays since its such a lower on the bar option. Just have your kid go to one of the satellite QMJHL camps they have around local rinks and your kid will probably get drafted just based on the fact he showed interest in going there.
Uhhhhh yeah sure Dad. Why did you pay the $99 for the combine then? Poor showing?
Paid the $99.00 to go through the motions and get a feel for what the process is like. Experience meeting with coaches, understanding their offers, etc..for $99.00 bucks is money wells spent. That's why I spend the $99.00.
