So when do the mediocre rep teams start playing there number 1 goalie consistently
since its rep hockey.
Agreed. Being a parent on DD I wonder the same thing? The only problem is we don't have a true number #1 after 50 games? DD has a good team that can skate and competes, good coaches, really good trainers but sorry to say, no goalies. One is small, the other is taller but zero work ethic and dad is a little nutty on the sidelines when his kid plays net. Give them a good goalie, they would be a mid pack team in no time guaranteed. Look at HValley for example, terrible team but their goalie is probably best in AA. He stole the show yesterday and we ended up tying them but spent 80% of time in their zone. Any parent looking to move their goalie, I would suggest giving DD a shot. I also love the know it all parents with no seeds to go behind the bench and show the coaches how it is really done. Keep being a coat tail rider and try out for the top teams and then cry about your kid being overlooked or pine riding. If your kid dominates AA, either go up to AAA, or challenge your kid and play on a mid pack or weaker team if you want to see how good your kid is.
