Simple question. Also, are there any superstars in the distant future?
16 years old. Those 2 years of development between 14 and 16 are the difference between a can’t miss, blue chip prospect and a burnout. At 16, you can tell what type of player the person is going to be and how they will look in an adult body and what their style of play is going to be, as their old enough for it to be pretty set in stone.
Predicting future supstars isn’t possible, save for the occasional generational talent like Crosby and McDavid. Players can be busts because they peak too early and stop developing. Trying to find players who will be super stars down the road is a pretty big waste of time. A lot of people say that the NHL Entry Draft age of 18 is way too early and that 20 is much better.
15. Befrore that there are two factors: their body is still going through a lot of growing and changing, the hockey in that U14 age group is really still kids hockey, no real physicality, not that smooth game the the 15-16 y.o. start to play.
Right now Michkov is the nect best example of a future star in the making.
Probably no. Those who have superstar potential leave to North America too early and never reach their limit.
There is very little to get excited about in Russian hockey these days.
