Re: Little guys

Your bender will stand out if he is quick, big, fast, strong, smart, has great hockey sense, good vision, a blistering accurate shot, and ankle breaking dangles. The small slow weak dumb kids eventually fall behind. It's why nearly all the parents on the dboard stop commenting after peewees.

Bingo..

Also, let's not forget the flip side of the coin the kids at squirts playing for second teams or that were not considered elite that have now bypassed everyone.

How big was the kid who just won the Hobey Baker?

5'7 160.

These guys don't get it. The 80's are gone man. You can either play or you can not play. Size is almost irrelevant these days.

I had kids on my pee wee teams that were 5'7 160.

The big kids move up or get noticed a little earlier and the small guys have to wait to impress. But what does it matter if everyone is 6'1 and 190 if the 5'7 kids can play with them and the size isn't an equalizer ?
