There is a social embrace that isn’t proven but is solidly followed, that we need to give kids roots. We need to provide stable, never changing environments for them to get to the top and get the most out of their childhoods and hockey development. They need consistent friends right beside them that they can call on for life. The idea is that there needs to be a sameness to inspire greatness. That this is so false it is amusing doesn’t seem to change our thinking on it.
