  1. Because the player amassed two penalties at the same time. You just can't say, "yeah we will play shorthanded until the penalty expires". A player has to physically be in the box. When the 10 minute or misconduct penalty kicks in you are back at 5 on 5.
  2. My son's team played up there on Saturday. The ice was horrible. They still have a ways to go, but it's good to see they are working to improve it
  3. The refs have been consistent in calling roughing on any checks where the hitter isn't going for the puck in the two scrimmages I have watched so far. They warned the boys about banging the boards, but didn't call it.
  4. It has to do with the premise of first year peewees playing up to checking bantam. Since mid-am and USA Hockey don't recognize non-checking middle school hockey, it all falls under the same umbrella as checking hockey.
  5. This is for this season. It was just featured in the Pittsburgh Hockey Digest. I think last time they went to Belarus.
  6. It could be worse, they could be paying to travel to Tartarstan to play a Russian team like the Esmark U16.
  7. Road paved, new bathrooms, new locker rooms, new ice surface, new boards, good food at the concession, water purifier, just basic improvements. It's a good thing that there is so much ice around, these high school teams have so many options.
  8. When my kid was a mite their were two levels, Group 1 was the better and mostly older kids, and Group 2 we're the newer and mostly younger skaters. Now I see organizations putting up Elite Red Mite teams. Are you kidding me? This is a trickle down effect of organizations starting AAA squirt and peewee teams to keep up with the Joneses because their kid wasn't good enough to make the Pens, who by the way started this whole mess by offering "Elite" teams below the bantam level. The future NHL parents are getting crazier by the birth year, and all the organizations are seeing dollar signs. I witnessed a woman at a learn to skate crying and begging the instructor to move her kid up because "he will never catch up to the others". The kid was like 4! I don't see it getting any better, honestly. Not as long as people are throwing down the cash for extra A's.
  9. It does include goalies unfortunately. Organizations now have kids who are able to play hockey in a developmental, nom-checking setting relegated to a practice squad, or even worse turned away because of their birth year.
  10. The team is looking for a handful of 05/06 players to field a second team. At this point, the team, as well as a lot of other teams in pihl, are being handcuffed by the Mid-Am second year peewee rule. They can draw from anywhere, but generally draw from Catholic/private grade schools, and schools and organizations that are unable to field teams. If anyone is interested in playing, or knows anyone who might be, you can message me with questions, or contact NCTROJANHOCKEY@GMAIL.COM
  11. Curious what you mean by "a program that's not building the right way"? The majority of the high school team started as middle school players four years ago when the program started back up. Curious what you consider "the right way"?
  12. Maybe he is the 05 Renegade Coach from a few years back that masqueraded as a hockey mom.
  13. Is it the same coach that screamed for his players to "take off their heads" when he coached for the Renegades 04 last season?
  14. Pahl didn't do the refs any favors by implementing the fair play point. All that did was cause them to be scrutinized even more. Refs are indeed human, and do not have the luxury of video replay. Any wrong or questionable calls are put under the spotlight even more because they have the possibility of affecting a teams post season. It's a flawed system that passes the buck so the league doesn't have to be the bad guy and deal with the repeat offenders who actually are the problem.
  15. Yeah, you don't even want to know what that JV team full of upper-classmen and Excel ringers did against the fifth placed team last night. Never mind that hard fought 1-0 win against the sixth place team the week before. #justbeatingeveryoneupasusual
