Kids Say The Darndest Things

Elementary school children sent  letters to Trevor Linden...

from Daniel Wagner of Pass It To Bulis at the Vancouver Sun,

“Practice more,” says Quintin, 11, and so does Isaac, who adds that the players should “count to ten or inhale and exhale 4 times when mad.” That’s got nothing to do with practicing, but it’s sound advice.

I like the advice given by Alvina, 11, who suggests that one practice a month should just be handed over to the players: “just let the team talk and get to know each other.”

Everett, 12, gets specific and suggests they “practice more give and go.” Leon, 6, wants the Canucks to “practice shooting” and “practice skating.” Apple, 6, agrees with the latter: “practice skating more.”

Bruce, 11, just wants “more practices to make it to the playoffs” and Chloe, 7, suggests the Canucks need to “work harder and practice.” Josh says, “have more practices…to get better.” Doris, 11, says “try to practice more.” Again and again, the advice from the kids is “practice more.”
