Lovell hockey took the same route to expand as a lot of businesses have done before....start of small, offers great product, get a good reputation...expands rapidly to maximize profit...product gets watered down due to expansion....product quality declines...customers notice...company declines.
I don't think Lovell Hockey has run its course but a few factors need to be kept in mind here . Take the Ship in EB that DZ is sinking . The demographics of the area are not as high end as they are around the south shore . Traveling to EB for some is not worth $3600 for a product that is being run by someone's high school drinking buddies . The AI programs are in shambles and TL needs to send help before it's unsalvidgeabke . The 05's there are losing about 7 kids and to the Rangers , the 04's are 06's are exploded . The skills are the only thing left there and that's declined .
Be easy to move AI to Tewksbury with the purchase.
Are you having a stroke? Why are there spaces before all your periods? And I assume you were trying to spell "unsalvageable?"
DZ is doing a good job. AI will be fine. I have no idea why you're so concerned with these teams, unless your kid is on one of them...in which case, you're free to leave.
04s and 06s are in rebuild mode. It happens. Good things happen after rebuild mode.
TWO 05s are going to Rangers. The team is keeping their two strongest players. They'll be just fine. God help anybody going to the Rangers organization. I mean that sincerely. My prayers are with them.
My apologies Mr. English professor, I'll have to tell hubby to update the software on my Laptops grammar check. I'm really not concerned with any of those teams, it's just pointing out facts. Yes facts!!! I'm not sure who's been blowing smoke up your behind but it sounds like your the one concerned with one of those teams, 05's possibly?
Have fun counting the players that didn't come back next season. Leaving AI for the Rangers should tell you something. And I'm sure we all enjoyed your English lesson on new rules of paragraph double spacing. Best wishes to you and all who think that boat isn't going down.
See you at tryouts, hopefully he's giving you a great deal to believe?
