In today's world the players don't have to 'get used to it.' Like the bullying high school coaches who learned bullying from their high school coaches and then they complain when the kid packs up his gear and goes to some full season team.
Personally, if I grew-up in the Boston metro area, why would I go to PC? Not a great school, bad attitude from the staff (if you're right) will thin the ranks of recruits, no Beanpot. . . who needs it? And BC is slowly dissolving into an also-ran program, Northeastern is nice but facilities at BU are much nicer. And my guess is the Flyers pretty much steer the boat on these choices. Good luck to the kid.
What's the deal with "...season that also saw him suspended for off-ice issues." Academics or other?
Yup. Look at the D3 Babson roster. Prep kid Frosh kids did nothing compared to the Junior kids...and that is D3
Honestly, did you look at the stats.?. one of the top producers at Babson was a 99 who played high school hockey 2 years ago. Just goes to show cream always rises!
Kid/Family/Advisor all screwed up by not having him play a year or two of juniors before going to PC...
Maybe the Flyers and JOB come here to the Dboard to see what we think he should do and take that into consideration?
You mean play prep hockey against 15 year olds doesn't get you well prepared to play college hockey against 25 year olds? Hmmm, who would have thought? :upside_down_face:
