What kills me is the cluelessness of so many high school coaches as to why kids leave and go to prep & junior teams. If these coaches did something for these kids to play after high school many wouldn't leave.
Which coaches have made calls?
Wow - again with this coach complaint? Enjoy the ride and stop with the blame the coach stuff. Agree with the last poster, if he's good enough he'll be found. Take matters into your own hands and call some college coaches yourself.
On to the playoffs!
Why do so many prep kids then need to also play a year of juniors before they make a D3 team. Many Nescac schools dont even publish the fact that that this is the case and make it look oh so much better saying they came from St Pauls or a catholic hs directly. Premier junior hockey in NAHL,USPHl or EHL is much better than prep hockey.
i saw a USPHL game the other day (where the kid pays the tuition) and it did not look like a very good level compared to Prep School.
Only a few Prep kids make the USPHL Premier teams so I'd think it's better. And these are graduated kids so they are no longer playing against 15 year olds.
