- I think that the guys enjoyed the experience, that's the main thing. I always receive a lot of energy and positive emotions when we get to train with children. It's great that we now have the Red Machine National Development Program, the players understand what is expected of them and the direction in which they are moving. More ice rinks are being constructed in our country as we continue to develop the sport. Children have the opportunity to develop, the rest depends on them.
