that does not make sense , IHC would pound BA
Internal fight among regions (Orgs.) keeps Toronto out of tournament. Call it what you want, if you compare to a super series you have never been. I for one thought the whole week was great for the kids and it is way beyond hockey. Unlike most on this board my son likely never plays in the NHL but the Q he will never forget.
The Q lost is allure when they started allowing teams to purchase bids rather than to earn them and get an invitation. Now its just a New England Invitational with a few other teams sprinkled in. No good Canadian teams really do it because its just a money maker tournament now.
If your kids not going to the Q its time to hang up the skates. All the Q kids make the NHL
My money is on team Minnesota. Its best vs best right?
Toronto teams are not banned, the GTHL playoffs are starting and they do not attend due to that reason.
My info is second hand but I do a lot of business in Toronto. Some guys I trust and have been in hockey a long time imply there was a conflict among the organizations and greater Toronto no longer welcome. Has been a long while best I can tell..... prob like the EHF and E9 not playing each other, makes no sense for the kids but the business side overrules.
