So where are you supposed to play as a 16/17 year old kid? Prep is bad, FS is bad.. those are the options.
At this point it is what it is. If some of these prep schools cancel after the first of the year, the kids that are already affiliated with a JR team will hook on to them but you aren't going to see a mass exodus of more kids leaving. There aren't many more spots to take on decent teams.
My son's coach is confident they are going to be playing games after the 1st of the year - I only hope he is telling the truth!
Its SUPPOSE to be about academics and not hockey, but tell that to the ones that are leaving prep for the USHL, NAHL, BCHL, OHL, NCDC et.
Will be surprised if the better prep players go to FLA...most preps are doing something for a season
Every level and league has become two lines deep if that. It’s everywhere you look.
