Brick and Q indicate a child is in the top % of their peer group at those moments in time. It's not a reliable predicator of future success...
Unless your bender is lighting up the Q in the AAA division. Then he's going to dominate bantam hockey too.
We all saw the Tkachuk boys at all-star weekend. Matthew's 2010 St. Louis Blues Q team had 5 future NHLrs on it.
I'd add, the top kid going to Mount 14U next year put up big numbers at the Brick (won w/CJR) and Q (QF with Philly). A kid like that, barring injury, can already by penciled-in for D-1 hockey.
Filling a roster spot on an EHF team with a Q bid, that's a different story.
