It's about attraction not promotion !!! DZ is is great but they are not attracting the kids at the younger levels rude coaches to parents and trying to build from other programs is not the answer. He will be forced to make a change in coaches in the future which will attract players to Eastie. The league does not help
Them in any way especially when they are competing for kids with the Eagles, Vipers, islanders, Warriors and Wizards.
Dz is not attracting kids because he is chasing them away. He's the one that needs to be replaced. He's chased away loyal customers with decent kids. Sadly enough some of those kids have chosen to be play for teams that aren't even BHL or Elite 9 competitors. That should tell you something.
