    That's crazy, a game where this kid scores 4 goals is bad by his standards

    Saying he will go first overall at this point is ridiculous. Sure he's a lock for the first round but I bet he doesn't even crack the top 5.

    PeeWee AA is best you can play in AB. But this kid needs to pass more, 20 assists all year, come on.

    Unless the person has played some juniors or for the international teams like U17 and U16 and shown something special there is absolutely ZERO point to discuss them. At 11 the kid would not even have hit ****ing puberty, do you know what happens at puberty? The body goes through some rapid and huge physical and mental changes, he will change so much and his peers will change so much that all he has right now is a small head start. In the grand scheme of things it means NOTHING at this point.
    At 13 or 14 you can in rare circumstances begin to spot future POTENTIAL talents but thats pushing the limits already and these kids will be playing against much older competition and start to get on the bantam draft radar(but thats rare). Usually its 15-16 most players begin to really separate themselves from their peers as they come out of their most important growth years and begin to mature.

    Based on what he has said he also sounds pretty cocky, even for a young kid like him thats a pretty bad sign considering what I mentioned above.

    These kids put up impressive numbers when they're young, but they are usually brought back to earth pretty quick once the level of competition catches up to them.

    It would be cool if he grew up and scored 100 goals in the NHL.

    Try to make a list of current nhl players that have scored most at that age and you'll see this barely means something.
