The problem is far to many kids at the ages where this should be the main focus of practice, bantam and up, lack the required skills and skating to execute this part. They still aren't good enough skaters and/or have good enough skills to be good at the thinking part. You are the one who is showing your lack of comprehension and probably lack of actual playing experience.
How about an understanding that hockey is not something that is bought or given to the players. Also an understanding that no matter how hard some players try they will never be able to get those skills needed. It just isn't going to happen. You seem to believe otherwise but then you go on to talk about MB AAA tryouts. Get a grip and put an A player on the ice with a AAA player at that age. The biggest difference shows clearly in the thought processes. Sure there are some noticeable differences in skills but not nearly as many as there are in game sense - thought processes.
Not sure what planet you’re from, but here on earth a humans athletisim has no relation to their IQ. So try again.
Great belief, and completely true in the microcosm you present that thought in. In the real world when comparing athletes - completely inaccurate. Obviously your beliefs have taken your kid down a path of less than satisfactory results. Otherwise you would not battle so hard about it.
So fast feet and smooth edging makes players smarter...now we know where you’re coming from.
