Re: Boston Hockey League

Made me think of an interesting question: Name the last New England Town Hockey player to play in a D-I game let alone receive a scholarship.

6-7 years ago a public school won the Super 8 and many were exclusively town hockey kids (back when you could make a good varsity team coming out of a town program). I think a handful of those kids ran home waiting for D-I schools to contact them and the phone never rang. So as long as the private teams market the kids to the colleges, provide the competition that is required by the college programs and find scholarship $ for kids. . . people will be willing to pay for their services.

So that what it is, all these great town players are being missed by all of the college recruiters?? this is about the most ignorant statement I've seen on both the new & old DBoard

Re: Boston Hockey League

As to why kids play at higher levels with coaches that advance their hockey careers is ignorant? O.K. then.

Didn't make any sense to me, either. It's much harder to get scouted at a public than a Prep. Scouts can see a half dozen prospects at a Prep game, and they also know they can balance academics and athletics, and pay for school (at least partially in most cases).

Do some research. Read an article from time to time. Expand your mind before calling other people ignorant.

Yes I re-read his post and he didn't get it. Then he calls it 'the most ignorant thing ever posted...'
