    This is how I'm gonna roll...........

    K, so this is really weird writing this but it's something I really want. I've decided at this point I'm REALLY going to narrow my collecting down to a couple players. Being Mike Green, Jack Johnson, Nick Markakis and the occasional Osterman & Finch.... I'm really going to lay everything else off for now.

    The reason? As I stated in another thread I've been playing pickup street hockey with adults as of late and can keep up with them, and do everything they can. They've played in real games/leagues before, I haven't and I'm just as good as they are. I really think I have something special and I want to see just how far I can get. People can say what they want, go ahead and tell me I can't do it because I'm 17 and have never touched a puck on ice before. I don't care. I can skate on ice and I can do everything else just as good as anyone could in the street hockey world..... I just have yet to put the 2 together. I believe in myself that I can do it and thats all that matters. My plan as of now is to finish up with my home schooling, get a job so I can get enough saved up to be able to pay for everything myself. Keep going on Sunday's to play, and start going skating again at least once a week over the summer. If all goes well I plan to sign up for a league in the fall, and if I do well to sign up for Craig Laughlin's Network Hockey Program at some point next year. If I make it in to this program and do well there's a pretty damn good chance I'll get into a college with a hockey scholarship.

    When you start, and are just playing in pick-up leagues, all that matters is how well you skate. The best skaters are the best players. The best skaters start when they are 6 years old. Good luck. Also have you been using a roller hockey puck (witht the wheels)..if easier so your shot is going to be a TON worse with a real puck, it is way heavier.. however if you have quick hands your stick handling will be much better because it is so much to move the puck on ice...

    Thats all I can really say becuase I play goalie

    I have no doubt my hands are quick. My slapshot sucks balls, but my wrist shot is pretty deadly. And yes we do use a roller hockey puck. I've been playing 5 weeks now. First 2 weeks we played with a ball, then some more serious people showed up and we started using a puck. I had no problems the first week we used it, netting 5 goals the 2nd week I got none but was mostly on D and was passing more than shooting. And the last time I played I had 2 goals and 4 assists.

    Terry, glad to see your chasing a puck now, instead of chasing women 10-15 years old the you.
    Good Luck on the hockey thing I have a friend that played in high school and in college. He still plays now
    and he is in his 40's and surprisingly he has all his teeth. LOL It is a physical demanding sport so you will need to
    work-out and even hit the weight room.

    Thanks guys... I've been wanting to take video but it's kinda hard out there. I've tried to get my bro to take some video but he doesn't want too. I'll see if I can get anything done tomorrow.

    So do you even know how to roller blade? All the street hockey Ive played you have to be on blades, you cant just run around. Definitly get the skating thing down before you go on the ice with others who know what they are doing. If you dont do that they'll make short work of you. Best of luck in whatever you do.

    Re: This is how I'm gonna roll...........

    Hi Terry, i wish you the best of luck of trying to catch on playing in an ice Hockey league. I love street Hockey as well, grew up playing it in Canada, 4 hours a day, every day, no joke. Played with many kids my age and much older and i was always one of the best. That was on the cement though, as soon as i played with these guys on ice, at the local lagoon or rink, i was one of the worst, due to not being able to skate as good as the others. I was always one of the worst skaters, never really could learn how to stop . Hopefully, you will be able to catch on skating, as fast as you caught on playing street Hockey. I recommend taking many power skating lessons as soon as possible.

    Just another example of the downfalls of home schooling your children.
