The people that can't understand how things will change are those who do not realize that there are kids playing on the Friars/Northstars that are better than some of the kids playing on the Caps elite. This now puts all of those players under the same roof so that they can funnel the better kids on these T1 teams to the Caps elite team. Of course the byproduct of this is that several Caps elite players are now out of a job.
"...several Caps elite players are now out of a job."
Now they're getting paid? This is all happening so fast!:grimacing:
If any knows about history then you do not need to read the link below. Rome fell and so will anything else that has the following features as Rome once did. This is what can happen to the PHC! Beware the ides of March!
True. But is it year 1 or 799!
Heh...just more IROC-Z's with t-tops coming to a FED rink near you
Nothing but access to form and align newer and better teams all under the same brand.
Basically creating a power vacuum of players in the state to form better teams to battle outside of RI. Creating a brand while making a fortune. It is america and hockey has a huge business side.
nothing changes except the name on the front of the jersey and a brand new shiny track suit
Everyone needs to purchase new gloves,pants,bags,helmets.... That could add up to another $800. When will they have the Jersey reveal party/viewing? Don't forget the club gets a kickback from the fitting/equipment company.
No way...kids are trying out in each location. Kids from MA that have been playing for the WNS are not going to want to go to Cranston 5 times a week. They try something like that and people will leave in droves. Probably the same for Southern RI kids if they do it in reverse and try to send them North. At the Elite level people will drive all over the place, but with so many Tier 1 (or similar) options in the area, why would you if your kid plays at that level?
Not that bad then! Thanks for the for clarifying.
Nothing is free my friend....nothing!
