Re: QMJHL News

Anon
Very familiar with the Rudy Ying situation, the kid played no better than 3-4 line at Exeter, kid has some skill, but had no interest in mixing it up on the ice, was mostly a spectator while he played. The family is loaded! Dad is some kind of famous talk show host on Chinese tv. Rudy's spot on that KHL team in China has been bought and paid for by the father, that's what they've done during the kids whole life.


As was stated earlier he has been working with Gary Roberts and RHA academy all summer. He's only 18 and he can still improve. He's in the KHL NOW let's see what happens and give him a chance.

What does it matter who he is working with, the family can write checks out their butt, he didn't earn nor does he belong in the KHL. this is all because of his father's checkbook

How the **** do YOU know? Watch a lot of KHL do you?

I swear, the "rich people suck" mentality here is ridiculous. If the team finds it worthwhile economically both for the publicity it could create in a nation with 1.4 billion people, and anything the dad may (or may not) be doing to grease the wheel, how are you qualified to say he doesn't belong?

Professional sports is entertainment. Grow up.

Yes, it will be entertaining. Thank you for your input Mrs. Ying

Right on and we all know most folks would do the same for their child if they could. So zip it up and see how if plays out before writing this kid off!

so what your saying is, if a parent writes the check to the right skating clinics, they deserve to pass everyone else to have a spot on a KHL team, even though the kid could barely play prep?? Keep writing those checks Mrs. Ying, your kid will learn a lot from that.

No, what we're saying is, a team based in CHINA gave him a spot. What their reasons are, are their reasons, and you have no clue what they are.

Tell us, how many Kunlun Red Star games did you see last season?

The Chinese Ice Hockey Association also saw fit to have him be the Captain of their U18 team at the World Juniors, too.

Who they decide to have him work with is their business. Imagine that, an 18 year old trying to develop his game.

Re: QMJHL News

It's amazing what money can buy you, especially in China

Re: QMJHL News

The kid from China that played prep? C'mon. Average player for around here. Nice story because hockey just getting started in China but please.

(Just posted on another thread but relevant here as well...)

Personally, I'd rather have my kid play in the Q, then play college at one of the top Canadian universities (McGill, U of Toronto) than have him play for most of the Hockey East schools, from an educational perspective. Canadian college hockey rosters have numerous ex-CHL players.



yes, they do, congrats on your 21-year old freshman


As opposed to the 21 year old frosh on a US College roster?

Average age for freshmen hockey players in NCAA is 21.

Another kid led astray by stupid parents and "advisers".


Who's to say he was "led astray"?? The kid is a late '99 and probably hadn't gotten much college attention yet, if any, and was seeing tiny 00s and 01s getting commits. He wasn't drafted in the USHL (or even the Q) and he got an opportunity out of the blue. If the team's GM hadn't turned over, he'd probably be happy as a clam in the Q and would probably finally get some recognition. As it is, he may actually get MORE attention from colleges now than he would have because they've at least heard his name. Losing one year of eligibility may turn out to have been a small price to pay.

If a kid isn't getting NCAA attention from schools he'd like to attend, why not go to the Q? Q teams offer educational packages that can be used anywhere. True, they wouldn't cover the whole price of college, but they'd help and a player who hasn't gotten much attention from college hockey wouldn't be getting much of a package either if he eventually does get an offer.

Comment was made by a guy who wasn't contacted by any advisors. So, naturally, anyone that has one is an idiot.

So many people on these boards act like what is happening to someone else's kid is somehow negatively impacting them.
