Re: OW Moving on

Got it. What does it mean in general terms if a kid plays for one USHL team for a year or two and then a different one? They were traded? What generally causes a trade - coach moves, team gives up on a kid, need a change of scenery like a new billet / school, teams swapping-out parts to get better, college coach moves the kid to improve playing time???? What gives?
It can mean a lot of different things. In the case of these two boys, both have dads that are a handful. Sometimes, the dads give bad advice. Sometimes, teams don't want to deal.

The reason Dougie was dealt was more about the parents (who were still involved even at the pro level) than the player. Think it's a coincidence he and his less talented brother both ended up playing for the same team?

Two goals? Players like Mathews and White were goal-a-game players at this level. And the goal OW had today was a layup. The assist was the play.
