if i made better decisions and had some luck. was going to go to a private high school for hockey decided to stay local go to a school that didnt have hockey and be with my friends. Year after i graduated they started hockey. Then I probably would have went to college. I was confident I would have the skill to compete at a pro level but I knew that no matter how good I was or how big I was I would never make it.

maybe being a NHL players child or being born and raised in canada coulda helped too.

I see a lot of you had some bad luck with injuries. I played 6 years of hockey, maybe acquired a few bruises and I was a gritty player.

When I read this, this is the first thing that came to mind.

Great thread Steve. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

And Yeah, I was also surprised at Young Doc Holiday. Maybe we'll have to change his name to Pre-Med Holiday instead. :hehe:

... if I didn't weigh as much as Jan Mursak and Drew Miller combined.

Money on the board!  Current total: $7

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

we should start our own hockey franchise. I'll petition Verizon Arena in Little Rock to home-rink for us. 17,246 for Hockey, so if we could fill that...lol

I could make the NHL if the zombie apolcalypse happens.

Since I spent my early 20's on tour and am about to graduate art school, it's fair to say that - 'I could have made it to the NHL if my upbringing had gone completely different'.
