Also young kid specialists tend to get hurt.

Also a Dr said the other day, the slew of hip issues w NHL players is overplaying the sport from a young age and not diversifying sports to enable other balanced muscular growth
Yep, this was seen years ago in little league baseball players who were undergoing pre-emptive Tommy John surgery. Everyone loses their shit over the 0.000000001% of the population who might allow their kid to have hormone therapy to become trans but apparently these Tommy John surgeries on young pitchers at the behest of their stage manager parents never gets mentioned.

because Thomas John surgery doesn't have long term paychological effects.
 
A goalie coach told me last year that a lot of the goalies today don't/didn't grow up playing baseball, and that has negatively impacted their glove hands in hockey. It kinda makes sense.
My glove hand was my strong suit, I favored it, always gave the top corner baiting the shooter to go upstairs.. to get my fast glove hand i use to take a tennis ball and and throw it hard against a cement wall while keeping my head pointing straight ahead, I start 15 feet away and then move in until i was a foot away.. I use to teach that to the goalies I coached, ie: pooge /slade.. the REAL issue with the glove today is positioning of the glove hand.. goalies today position the glove high which slows down reaction to lower shots below the glove.. moving your glove UP is a lot faster than moving it down..
 
I still don't think Primeau would have been claimed on waivers, whether that was at the beginning of the year or now.

We need a #1 goalie in Laval, so either waive him so he can go to Laval or trade him to a team that does have a veteran AHL goalie so we can place that guy in Laval. Dobes is shitting himself right now.
