How were these players selected? A few players on my sons team were not selected that clearly should have been. It's also strange that every coaches kid was selected.
The inbred hockey culture will never die!
Oh to be the high school coach there...just sit and wait every year for what Timmy & Joe can bring you.
Makes no sense why they would sacrifice the team chemistry and unity in the middle of the season and single out 3-4 players to not go to this tournament. The decision to destroy the confidence of 9-10 year olds and make them endure their friends and teammates talk about it in the locker room while they are not going doesn't sit well with me. What is more important, the November weekend in Chicago or the 6 month season that you just jeopardized?
The tourney is not the best teams from across the country. Yes there are good teams in the tournament. Teams that BBB 9 times out of 10 they will never beat them bc these teams play together year round while BBB is selected and then they enter the tourney. It's more of a money grab and marketing ploy for the Lovell program. The experience will be fun for the kids.
If they wanted to win the tourney they would need to hold a tryout for kids from all programs and have a series of practices. This would give them a real shot to win the tourney and to create a nationally and Canada known brand similar to the Honey Baked program, Team Comcast (now Virtua) or the Pens etc... if you have been to Ontario these are the programs the Canadians know bc of performance / results.
is there a roster posted anywhere
Brick = politics
BBB = $ grab
I see that the 04 BBB team is in the Bauer Invite - Elite division. Guess the results will show how well that roster was put together.
500 bucks for uniforms? No thx!
They don't go TL is dodging the competition. They create a tourney team it is a money grab. To all the kids that are going to this tourney have fun, play hard and listen to your coach.
Please tell me that there are no AI or 95G's on the 06 team. It should be 60% BA and 40% LK. If any from AI or 95G's made the team then it is a complete joke!! BA and LK's are ok but agree this makes little sense. Why not send both teams?
