I know a guy who played for the Red Army Russian hockey team as a kid....probably did drills 4hours a day since he was 10....lived in baracks....is amazingly good....got a full ride to Michigan...played minors....now works 9-5 and plays men's league....skates on the same ice with me and drinks from the same pitcher off the bar....all be it he does score alot more than I do nowadays....I'll take my childhood years of having fun playing all different kinds of sports. Skill is one thing....forced skill is another....if you don't love what you do, why bother?

Funny part is I think he likes playing tennis now more than hockey....
