  1. To be fair to the refs, they weren't exactly give a lot of time to learn about these new "guidelines". On top of that, if you watch USA Hockey's official video about said guidelines, you are often left scratching your head as the examples they show don't match the rule they are talking about. Unfortunately, it's going to be very inconsistent from game to game.
  2. Been involved in four 16U scrimmages/placement games so far and I have to say the officiating has been quite good. Parents have been well behaved as well. It's pretty refreshing actually. A small sample I know, fingers crossed it will last.
  3. Placements should come out this week. If teams want to appeal, they have this weekend to schedule additional games to provide proof in appeal process.
  4. Yeah, they updated it long after the games were over. On Wednesday they didn’t even have results from all the pool games listed yet even though the playoffs were that night. They finally got around to updating it sometime late yesterday. The point is, maybe they should have promoted it a bit better.
  5. All of this is absolutely true about youth hockey and statistics. Glossing over the fact that the original comment was that the PIHL can't even give some attention on their website, Twitter feed or Facebook, to a tournament that essentially is the kickoff to their season. How hard would it have been for them to update these things with current SCORES, forget individual stats?? BurghHockey.com was updating twitter in real-time....nobody from PIHL could do the same?
  6. Just looked at old PointStreak site from 2017-18, there were 58 MS teams then.
  7. I think this is what he's looking for... PRESEASON 1920 Groups_Game Slotting 12U_14U_16U_18U.xlsx
  8. Because most of the board (since changed) didn’t have players in that birth year?
  9. QV has never had a JV team. On their website they list a roster for MS so that leads one to wonder if they just went independent instead of being in PIHL. Looks like Hampton has no JV team this season which seems to make sense since they graduated a ton and had low MS numbers last year.
  10. To be clear though, this 25% rule is not a USA Hockey rule, this is strictly Mid-Am doing this. Other districts do not implement this policy. We had families recently move in from other districts that couldn't believe there was such a rule because we were unable to take their 2007 because we had hit the limit....we will have a short bench because of this and next year, maybe no team at all in PIHL.
  11. PAHL AA is beneath them but PIHL is not?? Seems like an odd conclusion for them to come to.
  12. Didn't make huge improvements??? You couldn't even drink the water there before MF and DW bought the place. Complain about them all you want, but if those guys hadn't stepped in there would be one less rink in WPa today.
  13. This is great, a development program is a great way to get the kids into the program. However, not all programs have the volunteers or the resources to do this and rely on the middle school program to be the developmental program. After all, that's what Mid-Am claims, that MS should be developmental and then proceeds to hamper programs that are trying to develop by limiting the number of younger players. I'm not exactly sure why Mid-Am has made this rule. Dropping it from 9 players to 25% of the total roster is a pretty dramatic change. Maybe this is their way of getting leagues like PIHL to drop the MS level and just have MS be truly developmental only?
  14. I'm pretty sure it excludes goalies from that number but yeah, it's a terrible rule hurting a lot of programs.
  15. Hey GoldenHorshoe, how about instead of spamming every thread with the same crap you read what the OP was asking for first. Can you not read that he is looking for a place less than 2 hours away??
