Thank you all for a great season

I would just like to write a very warm thank-you for everyone who has supported the newsletter/blog this season.  It truely has been a pleasure to work with this group of parents, players, scouts and others who have helped make the newsletter and blog a great success.  Without the help of some of you, all of this wouldn't be possible and it likely wouldn't have lasted more than a month or two.  For every negative comment I received, I got 50 positive ones.  For all this, I sincerely thank-you!

As the bantam draft comes around on May 5, 2011 and passes, the focus will shift fairly quickly to the 97 and 98 age groups and we'll start it all up once again.

Best of luck to all the 96 born players on Thursday for the bantam draft.  All players have to remember as well that the draft isn't the be all and end all of a hockey career.  If you are drafted, you still have to work your tail off to get to the next level.  If you aren't drafted, you still have to work your tail off to get to the next level.  Scouting is far from a science and there is lots of time to work on skills and put in to it what you wish to get out of it.  As for the list supplied by western elite hockey prospects, the only list that truely matters in the end is that of the scouts of WHL teams.  Every team will have a somewhat different list and we'll just all have to wait and see how events shake down.  Just because you are low on this list, doesn't mean a team won't like you much higher and visa versa.

Best of luck once again to the families, players and WHL teams making selections on Thursday!

Your comments are bang on about working hard to get to the next level and lists are always subjective and always good for stirring debate. Thanks for your work and I hope the site provides some income for you.

Also to remember that there are mistakes made. For any undrafted 96's, just take a look at how many high end 95's went undrafted last year but that has not deterred some of them from having success and outshining many of their drafted peers this season. No matter what happens at the draft remember to keep working hard.It's when your 17 or 18 that it matters, not 15.

Great Blog all year. Good luck next year with the 97 group. Very informative way for prospects and parents to keep up to date with various tournaments, games, and progress, of other draft year players and teams.
