I can’t tell you how many times I have the “1/2 ice conversation” with parents. Parents just don’t get it. One of the big complaints in town hockey is lack of ice time but tell some frustrated NHL-coach- wanna-be that he has half a sheet and he rolls his eyes.

PLEASE take a minute and read this. The bottom line is that everyone who actually knows anything about hockey development favors 1/2 ice practice, 1/2 ice games and small games. If you don’t, ask yourself why?
