Not sure about the Islanders, but the Caps 08 elite goalie is phenomenal. He faces 40+ shots regularly.
Doesn't matter. Montreal goalie is ridiculous
9 year old hockey analysis. I feel dirty just reading this. Guys, if you just stay out of the way, it gets so much more fun when they are older. Trick is to keep them on the ice and not afraid of their parent's pre and post game speech during the car rides.
To play in the Brick silly
I love how people think if the kid is from Canada then he is automatically some stud. If the kid moves a mile over the Maine border then he isnt that good because he isnt Canadian. Just a little secret for you - USA has caught up to Canada in hockey. With that, If the kid was that great why didnt he make one the many Canadian Brick Teams - Montreal, Saskatechwan, Two Toronto Teams, Team Brick, etc?
I was there. My kid tried out. I saw two skaters that were above and beyond and the one goalie. 30 kids didn't belong - not because they stink - just need more development. The rest are comparable in my opinion. What really struck me was the so-called top 40 and last years Jr. Bruins teams kid weren't as good as I expected. The rest of the kids are catching up. Lots of NY kids from Westchester and Jr. Sabers. Why would they tryout? To make one of the lower level teams?
Everyone talked about him because no one knew who he was. Same with the other Canadian kids that tried out.
