Wow - USA Hockey - that is a Floorball "stick-trick"! Eat this ;-D


The Magazine USA Hockey is the world's probably most influential Ice Hockey Magazine.

In their September Issue 2013 they for the first time show Floorball sticks on page 30. We do not dare to show this image here due to copyright issues.. But you may see it in it's full splendor via this link.

Then we may quote em'
"Thanks to the hi-tech gadgetry of SuperGlide synthetic ice under Rapid Shot 
and Rapid Hands exercises, the DAJ Skillz  Center is part arcade, part classroom, part 
playground (with a miniature rink complete with Swedish Floorball sticks) and part testing ground." 

So they here make the magic trick to sneak in Floorball into the magazine like it is just something odd from Sweden and not something kinda crucial or whatever... maybe just for kids... Ok its better than nothing right..?

Let us set this enormous ship straight here:
A) Floorball was to a large extent invented in Minneapolis
B) Floorball is both faster and larger in number of active players at mature Floorball markets like for instance in Sweden and Switzerland (compared to ice hockey)
C) Today all professional players in NHL from Sweden. Finland, The Czech Republic and most other west European countries are raised upon Floorball in school
D) The IIHF ranking of countries indicates with high significance that Floorball in school is utterly good for Ice Hockey performance
E) At 7 out of 9 Male World Floorball Championship Finals  - the live audience has been larger than the same years World Ice Hockey Championship
F) Players like Forsberg, Salming, Sundin, Zuccarello, Granlund and many more have praised Floorball for stick handling skills
G) and...Canada is on track to be lightyears ahead of USA in terms of floorball.. ehrm..

Wow, so in principle the USA Hockey Magazine do the magic trick by pulling the rabbit out from the hat without explaining a single word about the rabbit or Floorball. That is to use very moderate terms - WILD.

If we were the editor-in-chief at the Usa Hockey Magazine - we would now try to eat that very same hat - the one - he just pulled the rabbit from... ;-P

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
