So where should a solid 15/16 year old forward play. If USPHL isn't the answer, then what is. We are going to be faced with this question next year. We are 1 hour 20 minutes from Marlboro, 1 hour from Hartford, CT..I cant seem to find any other options for full season other than the PICS and I hear its not that good. We would probably not get any FA at Prep so that is out of the question.
Got offers but didn’t take them? Right....and he wasn’t asked to go to Michigan, or drafted in USHL or NAHL?
Come on man, get real....
Interesting. There were no Pics kids drafted in the NAHL this year. Nice try.
Solid display of little 04 8 graders, the 03’s who can’t make the cut to make it to Michigan this week and washed up 02’s....
You think 16 year olds are washed up? There’s no development from 16 on? If an 03 at 15 can’t make it to the National Festival, they don’t make the cut? There’s no good players who are not National Festival invitees? So there’s only 10-15 or so quality players each in Mass, NE, NY, NJ/Eastern PA, just to name the neighboring USA Hockey Districts? If an 04 8th grader who doesn’t yet have SS, HS, CC or prep options can play with older players and is given the opportunity to do so, they shouldn’t? For all their ages, we’re still talking about kids. You should look up how much turnover there is from year to year in who is selected from the various districts to the USA Hockey Festival. Around 50%.
