Cold Dry Hands?

Great article about how useless a short bench is in youth hockey. Please encourage all to read! "The game is for the kids, all of the kids. Research nationwide tells us that players would rather play on a team that wins 50% of their games than sit on the bench of a championship team with little or no playing time. The bottom line is that all of the kids want to play."
