Re: JBH Brick Roster Announced

congrats to the kids that made it.It's an experience they will remember for a long time I'm sure. I wish it wasn't so costly.I don't think a family should have to go in to debt to play summer hockey.Granted the competition they'll be playing with and against is pretty good.It's just the nature of the sport. I wonder how many spots were already filled before try outs even started?

Re: JBH Brick Roster Announced

IMO a lot of the kids were already selected but there were spots open at F and D and goalie. For the most part they got it right. Some exceptions here and there but at that point it's go-with-who-you-know.

Re: JBH Brick Roster Announced

Examples, Senators don't have many numbers retired, but Erik Karlson wears #65 and Sequin wears #91 although Stars don't have a lot of retired numbers. I could go on. Besides, for the big many families are paying, let the kids wear whatever numbers they like, which likely match the numbers they wear all season long for their club teams.

OOOooooooooof. Where did we go wrong?

Maybe it's time to post "The Rules" or whatever they were called. Does anyone have a copy?

Re: JBH Brick Roster Announced

Team is stacked, but not all the kids are the "best" in Mass. Some of the kids are fortunate to have parents who can foot the bill to have their kid play in such a prestigious tournament.

Welcome to the economics of youth sports. What it has become is pretty astounding! One writer called it the "youth sports industrial complex"
