Re: Lots of league bashing and it's October 2nd

Maybe it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s time to take a look at the team, the coach, the other players, the other parents or your own freakin\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' kid before you bash a league because you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re unhappy about something.

At the younger ages the practices and developmental piece are the most important parts.
Where else am I going to complain about the program and league my kid is in. The EHF team they are on is terrible. We made a mistake. They just rely on two kids going end to end, is that hockey?
Played against BA this weekend. They had 10 selfish end to end rushes. Is that hockey?
So your complaining that the team you played against didn't pass ? If they scored on the rushes/breakaways not sure what the problem is.
Look lady, if you don't know how hockey is supposed to be played, then don't post on here with a reply that displays your lack of knowledge so clearly.

Sure, end to end rushes are cool to watch once or twice a game. They are rarely attempted and even less rarely scored on at the older ages (14 and over).

The game is meant to be played using all your players on the ice, not just one or two.

Kids are supposed to move the puck and skate. Pretty simple. If your kid is the one going end to end, of course you don't see a problem. But I bet his linemates hate playing with him because he won't pass the puck. Eventually everyone figures this out and just avoids him and won't pass it to him either.

The best player ever had almost twice as many assists as he did goals. The best players in the NHL today are the best playmakers unless they are a pure finisher, like Ovechkin or Matthews.

Good luck at your squirt and middle school games.

I've seen some kids who are able to do breakaways because they're fast and they hustle. I've also seen kids pass the puck and it was a bad move. If a kid is capable of getting down the ice and scoring I don't see the problem. I see many kids do this to be honest. Passing is overrated.

Haha. That is one of the dumbest comments I have seen on here. The end to end rushes stop after mites. You have a lot to learn about hockey and player development.

so this is exactly my point. If you have kids that are 8 and parents are obsessing over passing then they need to chill. Passing is a skill that comes with maturity.
