  1. I thought maybe one of the teams was playing an illegal goalie
  2. I'd think by now most everyone has decided on new coaches for next season. Anyone know who all landed where? Here is what I know of but I know there are a bunch I'm missing. Peters Twp - Promoted Assistant Coach to Head Seneca Valley - Promoted Assistant Coach to Head Central Catholic - Previous SV Varsity Head Coach
  3. I'm about 90% sure overqualified is the BC coach, so I can only assume that was a brag about himself beating up on the open division
  4. I have no problem giving him all the credit if he can do something at central. I hope he does well there as the more good teams at AAA is better for everyone.
  5. How closely did you read those contracts you guys signed? Knowing the owners history, it's safe to assume he planned on screwing people over from the start. He probably snuck something in there where you guys owe him money every time you lace them up 😂
  6. Why not just go out and watch local men's league games? It's as good a level of hockey or better and you just might see a scrap or two. Plus you can probably bring your own beer most places and not catch any hell for it
  7. There is a reason why so many hockey players develop hip issues later in life
  8. The level of play at a good u16AA tournament is certainly better than that of a u15AA tournament. If USA jumped on board and held u15 tier 2 nationals it might change the landscape, but until then play on the best team you can and take two legitimate cracks at nationals
  9. If only the 09 parents were smart enough to realize the best option is to mix with AA 08s. U15 tier 2 is just silly
  10. Last I checked, players aren't out here changing their birth years. So 09s are a problem because it's the same parents year after year.
  11. They can just play men's league. The better beer leagues around here are a higher level of hockey anyway
  12. For the most part yes, but as far as I know the coach who makes the most is at one of the smallest schools in the area. Obviously I don't know what everyone makes; I can only assume he's at the top as it's a massive number
  13. I think 8-12 is probably pretty accurate for a new coach coming in. Some of the longer tenured coaches are up to 18k, at least from the ones I know.
  14. If a top end players wants to pass on Excel I think they'd be fine, but when they are picking teams you better believe every bottom half player is in excel. Replacing players 15, 17, and 18 (who don't want to do excel) with 20, 22, and 24 (who do excel) would 100% happen.
  15. Have to think HOH will offer them cheap jerseys. Kind of a kick in the nuts to pay 4500 and be given a "free" set of roller hockey jersey
  16. No, Alpha pulled the same power move as black bear does by pushing scir to rebrand and ousting the Aviators.
  17. While I don't think it's the main reason they are struggling, I think some of it comes down to people not liking the strong arm approach black bear took. Makes me wonder what the numbers will look like at vengeance this year
  18. T1 midget clubs can choose what they want, but pretty much all use 3 man. I think 3 man is the way to go, assuming the guy wearing the bands is competent. Problem with 4 man is if the two refs aren't on the same page you can get the game called differently on each side of the ice
  19. They all complain about how boring it is. It ends up being a lot more standing around
  20. It actually was very good. I know the refs don't like doing the 4 man system, but it did lead to significantly better officiating
  21. Welcome to the world where refs can pass out 10s like Oprah. Luckily they don't use fair play points at nationals
  22. Typically our region is only ever 3A, but they only got in because they are hosting so not sure how that works
