  • More on Malcom Gladwell's "Outliers": To make his point as described above, he takes an in-depth look at Canadian Youth Hockey. Starting with youth leagues, better players get more playing time, more ice time.

    Leagues are organized by age ranges that start/cutoff on January 1 of a given year. This may give a slight advantage to kids with Jan-Mar birthdays, since by being older in their group, they are likely to be bigger, faster, stronger, etc.

    Unintended consequences: 90% of the Canadian Junior National Team (U-17?) is Jan-Mar birthdays. Eventually the shear number of hours advantaged to others is insurmountable by late bloomers.

    My apologies for the thread drift, but the book is a great read.

          If my memory is correct, AJ was one of the front runners when Stollings was given the job.

            In normal times, it would be difficult to attract an established coach to come in and clean up a mess like this roughly a month before official practices start. But add in the pandemic, and you have to move your family to a state that is one of the hot spots in the entire country. For what may be a shortened season, or maybe no season at all. You would think that it would take a lot of $ to get a name coach to buy into that.
