I've always wondered why Hockey didn't produce more players like that. Why don't they do more tricks? Why do they have such a hard time keeping
control of the puck and faking out defenders? I think that's cause hockey is extremely physical. By the time he gets to the Pros, won't it be much
more important that he doesn't get pushed off the puck, can get into the right places at the right times, and has the endurace to play hard?Even the
best hockey players seem to rarely mess around, they stick to the basics and hope to win a game over the long haul.
I think to see this type of stuff in professional hockey would be extremely entertaining. But I also think that whoever tries to do it is going to
get nailed a few times, and try to get rid of the puck sooner next time.
