Why so negative? Why do people always feel the need to bash the Generals? They aren't having any trouble filling their teams.
A lot of good options out there. Is NA better than NCDC sure. Is the NCDC awful? No. Is USPHL terrible? Some teams are some teams aren't? Does Boston Advantage suck? No, maybe not a great fit for everyone but a lot of happy people that play or have played there. Do the Junior Bruins suck? No, maybe not a great fit for everyone but a lot of happy people that play or have played there.
How about instead of absolutes we talk in terms of "This wasn't a good experience for my kid because of....." ?
Do all camps stink? No. Do all tournaments stink? No. Are a lot of things money grabs? Yes.
Make the most of it, go in with and open mind. Don't choose a program to win a championship (although there is nothing wrong with winning) but go to a program you can develop at. Play for a Coach you like and trust. Investigate things before spending money. Relax. Enjoy the ride, it's a lot shorter than you think.
If your kid really starred for the #2 ranked Honeybaked team you wouldn’t be asking the dboard for advice
