Nothing worse then seeing someone score over 5 goals in a game and maybe have one assist and the team wins by 8-15 goals in a game. At the end of the year you see the kid with over 40 goals and a limited amount of assists but in the big games against the good teams they are either shut out or score very little in comparison. I understand the kids being selfish but the coaches should either pull their kids out or tell them to pass it to their teammates . Jus my opinion and I'm sure some will agree and many will disagree

Unless you see a game don't comment. I know a few boys on the list. Seen lots of games. Some players on the list have a good G:A ratio, some no ratio. Even those with a good ratio could be better. You mention a player with a lot of goals. A few of the scoring leaders would have 50% more assists if other players just finished. Not to mention some get a looser definition of an assist over others.

So please let's congradulate their accomplishments because anyone on the first page or two of any ranking deserves the accolades, just know everything is relative and not as black and white as it is in print. Some are better some are not.
