Re: Private Playoff & Public Playoff

It would definitely keep kids home which would improve the hockey and attract better coaches which in turn would create a feeder program like Arlington has done. I guarantee over time the public champs would push the catholic champs in the state finals and actually win from time to time ( every few years)

Re: Private Playoff & Public Playoff

I agree. The outcome might just be exactly what the public school coaches have wanted all along - keep the better kids in their programs. This change combined with educating the coaches on how to advance your players post high school. It would stem the flow of kids hanging around for their freshmen and sophomore years and then bailing out to a full season team or a prep.
