Re: U16 USPHL Summer Showcase

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....
Yes not all offers are the right offers for your kid.

And he was drafted in the NAHL.

There are good players in all leagues, and some people just are too dumb to realize that. Yourself included.
Most here don't have that reality that you need to turn some offers down that aren't right for your kid.
Yes I know - we have been really lucky that he's got the skills, works hard, and was in fact noticed even though he plays such a god awful league (according to some)

But of course, I am just seen as a liar for realizing this

Re: U16 USPHL Summer Showcase

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....

I would make a local team of 03's that "didnt make it" to play against those that did. I'll take my odds any day of the week. You take the "top" 20 and I'll make a list of the "others"

Re: U16 USPHL Summer Showcase

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%.
