You have to love the fact that a new coach doesn't have to honor anything. Unlike every other sport many of these kids have spent two years post high school gearing up for their shot at a specific school and then it all gets pulled-out from under a 21 year old freshmen.
Everyone is eventually told they are no longer good enough. Different ages, different levels, but everyone is told.
Sorry your kid got cut.
Heard JW has a torn labrum.....uh oh
JW gets hurt every year dating back to his days at Central Catholic. Kid is so overrated it isn’t even funny and zero work ethic in the gym. That’s what happens when everyone tells you that you are great and you believe it. He was nothing great at the US NTDP and obviously can’t take the physical play in hockey east. Another Kim B. disciple who needs to grow a pair.
I get a kick out of all you people who love to trash these kids over and over again. All 3 players in these posts, OW. JW, and TJW are all great players and better yet great kids. I have know all of them since they were coming up through their youth programs and have had the opportunity to write about all of them in articles that I have written.
You all trash OW for changing schools and for all these other things, who cares! The kid was a leading scorer at the national program and will be a great college or OHL player. He has great work ethic and will be a great pro.
The last poster obviously does not know a thing about JW. The kid has had one unfortunate injury and now appears to have another, both on fluke plays. Injuries happen at every level. There a many pros that get hurt and come back stronger every time. His work ethic is the over the top whether in the gym or on the ice. He came back from injury last year and was a top 5 scorer in the USHL in points per game and ended up 5th in scoring on the national team with playing 26 fewer games than anyone else. His coach wrote many quotes about him and how hard he worked thru his injury.
TJW unfortunately had 2 bad injuries and has worked hard to become one of the best players in the USHL this year. He just committed to a great HE school. He is a great kid and works his butt off both on and off the ice. He is a top scorer in the USHL this year and will be great in college. I would not be surprised if he gets drafted this year.
The last poster also mentions KB, now we all know that you are an idiot and know nothing about what you are talking about. He and his program are by far the best around. He is the skating coach for the B's and the players love him. I have had the opportunity to speak with many of them and they can not say enough things about him.
So keep trashing kids and now adults, but hopefully someday you will learn the sport and focus your attentions on the positive.
OK, and where is "your son" playing now? My guess is not at any level respected in the hockey world. Also, glad to know and I am impressed that you personally know 2 dads whose kids are in the NHL. Does that make you an expert? If you kid stayed with Dynamic maybe he would be a better player.
You are obviously clueless!
1 assist in 14 games for OW playing huge minutes and PP..
No offense to the kid, who may be a decent human being, but that's flat out horrible given the level of competition in HE this year.
So what defines a great pro? Kid will play in the NHL and make a lot of money doing it. Maybe not to Eichel's level but he'll be there and your kid won't. Sucks to bu.
so you know he won't be a good pro, but there is no way anyone can know that he will be...ok gotcha.
Your right. Time to head out to watch the local whack a puck games but lookng foward to the WJC tournament starting on the 26th.
yay - eveyrone loves the grammar guy
It's "everyone" not "eveyrone". I'm also a spelling guy.
JW will be released from BU after next season. Most likely rip it up at Salem State. Go Vikings!
Norwich is waiting...…..
