  1. Just heard that offers went out for roster spots and, if all accept, there will be a Varsity team this year. Offers went out for Middle School as well.
  2. I had not heard about the final configuration of a Varsity and JV program. I was told there was the highest number of Middle School players registered for try outs than the previous three years.
  3. North Catholic finished try outs this past weekend and while I could not see everything on the ice the entire time, I was not able to see that group of “ Excel superstars” anywhere. Maybe I just missed them. Perhaps they will show up for the games.
  4. How long ago did SHAHA’s house become a single sheet? It has been one sheet since my kid started playing.
  5. Merely my voice and my opinion but..... It is a slippery slope when a public forum starts blocking an IP address of a user. I have been publicly flamed by Wampa before and I learned from it. Say my piece, defend with data, ignore him otherwise. If you take the time and read his posts ( from all of his identities) you will see that he goes from 0 to 100 with no room or time between. But if you also read his posts, there is valid information buried in with the responses.
  6. Have heard same rumors as well as rumors of one more at Baierl. Nothing more than rumors as far as I know.
  7. Honestly and sincerely, thank you Popcorn. That was a personal critique of another person’s work. Probably what the original poster is looking for after all.
  8. Have had my son skate with Steve for 4 years. Every other week, weekends on occasion, sessions always well attended by many levels of skaters. Junior hockey, AAA High School, Tier 1, all the way to squirts. Clearly we cant “ unring the bell” from the above post, but I have never heard of any of the behavior described above. Steve was not thrown out of Baierl, his banner is still on the wall. Will not go into any thoughts regarding his absence over this past winter; perhaps contacting him directly at the address or phone number provided above would get an answer. He is scheduled to be back at Baierl in May for a weekend clinic, come see for yourself and ask him then.The original post asked for recommendations not unfounded scandalous accusations.
  9. Seems to me that all of the back and forth and name calling pales when you consider what Wampa said in this post. A player known to him actually played a game in a different player’s jersey. That ends the debate.
  10. Steve Emmett. SCE Hockey. semmett@rogers.com 724 759 3356 Works primarily out of Baierl in Warrendale.
  11. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to see that a dad is being honest about his son, his try outs, and the results. Over and above all of the other white noise generated by this forum, I find it refreshing. Congrats. To the player AND his dad. He might not have made the team he tried out for, but I’ll bet he is a better player for the effort put forth.
  12. First I am a Millennial (1981-1996), not even close. Now I’m a weasel. I agree there are heated emotions at youth hockey games. Never been me. Look elsewhere for your vitriol and ad hominem attacks. Not me bro.
  13. https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/PN/Public/btCheck.cfm?txtType=HTM&sessYr=1989&sessInd=0&billBody=H&billTyp=B&billNbr=0227&pn=3049 Original text of the law. You got me. Probably should not have clipped that quote. Guilty. But after reading the text of the law, not sure that a first degree misdemeanor lives up to the destroying of a family that one user dreams of. It remains troubling to me that there is a law in place to begin with, and that someone dreams of a family being destroyed. Millenial? Now that’s funny. As for me, I will continue to do what I always do; stand either between the opposing sides of bleachers or at either end of the ice, hands in pockets, watching the game. Will continue to keep my mouth shut and watch the lunatics in the stands.
