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:

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

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'.
