Re: WILL O'NEILL HOCKEY FACTORY

Just found his Instagram page. Its really cool. Why wont some of these kids make it to the NHL? We live in a great hockey area and have the best leagues, clinics and camps. Wouldn't those things produce NHL players? My guess is 1/3 will at least play NCAA hockey and maybe 1/4 beyond that.

Re: WILL O'NEILL HOCKEY FACTORY

Sure some might make it to the NHL...but you're crazy if you think anyone who does this camp will. If you have an average player sending them to a camp like that won't help.

Re: WILL O'NEILL HOCKEY FACTORY

It is good for higher end players that need some ice time to work on creativity and shooting of a move. Not good for primary development. He is a nice guy who connects with the kids well. He’s given my son some good advice on being a 2 way defenseman and boosted his on puck confidence. I think in a different setting he would be very good but the walk on skills are not going to do that. As others said too many kids and no correction outside of pushing their motor a bit.

Re: WILL O'NEILL HOCKEY FACTORY

That makes sense. I had only heard of him because I follow this kid who is amazing, lives out of state and I guess played on one of his elite teams. I then noticed this hockey factory program. There’s so many programs out there.
