Re: Cushing

Not much at CA

Re: Cushing

2.5 PPG

Re: Cushing

They lost so many good players last season. Nowhere near as deep, physical, or fast as last years group. Hope they can rattle off some Wins soon. 3 D1 commitments need to step up and prove it now, offensively and defensively.

Re: Cushing

I think the program got consumed with the PR stunts, the interviews, the full page write ups, etc..and now that they are not producing Wins and fighting for ties against some subpar teams, they deserve a little criticism. The kids will learn and get better, but maybe the adults should just go about their business and teach/coach instead of the interviews and articles like all the other top teams do.

Agreed, focus is in the wrong area. Should focus on organically improving current players and recruiting top end prospects. Not spending a fortune on NEHJ articles, ad’s and interviews

Re: Cushing

Here is what happened. Two years of covid and lying to players and they lost a lot of interest from Canadian kids wanting to do a 1 year pg. Salisbury and Cushing have not been as dominant IMO. You add a line or even 1 or 2 Jr. hockey players in there and all of a sudden, powerhouse. When they were pgs, and able to play, they never had the misfortune of learning just how full of crap these schools are. I am sure on both sides people are saying, its better off this way.

Not sure what the fuss is about Cushing. Cushing is average prep hockey program. Average Players + Average Program + Average Coaching = Average results.
Pretty simple.

Re: Cushing

Varsity is always solid. varsity B can skate with many varsity prep programs.. and they also have a jv team. Nothing average about that.

Team is young, they will be Ok, but not the #1 Team in the land as previously deemed by the one and only NEHJ. Will be a good test over the next few days. Hope they can pull it together.
