i know nothing about any of this, but i'd assume that bench reps are prob a decent measure for hockey, to indicate what kind of strength one has for battles around the puck, on the boards, in the corners, in front of the net, etc. for say the NBA? maybe not so much.
also don't know if max strength would be all that important to know. maybe i guess? but if a kid is a power lifter, you'd probably know it already by watching him flatten ppl when he plays.
