I would love to hear what you your definition of an elite hockey player is. there seams to be a lot of posters on this board that have played at an elite level....so please fill me in


Can you make the roster of an elite team that is at the top of the EHF Elite or E9 or equivalent no matter where or what division you currently play in ?
That is FAR from elite. Not even close.

At the youth level: Can you play at a level representative of the top 40 players of your age group in a major metropolitan area?

At age 16: Can you play at a level that is attracting D1 college and USHL scouts?

At age 18: Have you been drafted by an NHL team (any round will do)?

At age 21: Are you playing D1, D3 or professionally?

Dude, this is a YOUTH board. Which is why most realistic parents that no these type of responses are rediculous
But, hopefully, they can spell and construct cogent sentences so you can understand their point.

MY point was that the number of area players that are elite at the youth level is 40 or so per birth year. Bet ten times that number of parents believe it to be their kid.

Hey grammar police, where did you get your statistics from? Hopefully that was spelled accurately enough you comprehend the question because that would be the only reason you would need to point out spelling errors on the dboard Well, either that or you are a dbag

Re: what is an elite hockey player

The Elite tag for youth hockey is a draw to get your kids to play club hockey. Nothing more, nothing less. If you are worried about your kid being an elite hockey player than I feel bad for him or her.

My kid was offered an elite contract but I thanked the coach and declined. I explained my eyes have been open by this dboard guy who says there is no such thing as Elite hockey in MA
