Re: M***Conn no more

M***Conn is part of the same group that owns Northstars, CT JR Rangers, Boch Blazers. Did BlackBear get their hands on all those programs and rinks?

Black Bear bought the Hartford Jr Wolfpack and all the rinks the owner had as well, Champion skating center in Cromwell, The Rink in Simsbury and Bolton Ct as well.
Now they own ETR and M***Conn as well, not sure this good for Hockey in the area or not.

The Simsbury rink was bought by a local group BMW Sports with close ties to Simsbury Youth hockey and the surrounding community. Bob Crawford did own Bolton, Cromwell and ISCC.

Re: M***Conn no more

How much did it go for ballpark?

Re: M***Conn no more

I spoke with a dad at our tournament today from Chicago. Seems Black Bear not only buying a bunch of rinks out there to add to their stable but starting their own youth hockey programs in Chicago. Interesting that they would start and not buy programs in an already packed hockey area.

MASS CONN is a joke, always has been. Put lip stick on a pig, its still a pig.

Well that certainly was helpful.

Re: M***Conn no more

Black Bear may have been good for MassConn but they just put the guy in charge of all hockey operations that totally ruined the ‘07’s and ‘08’s.

His coaching was so bad that they couldn’t even field Elite teams in either age bracket this year.

Most organizations have Elite teams and one or two teams in the “Tier 1 groups. MassConn is lucky to be able to field even the one team.

Current standings.

‘09’s. 6th
‘10’s. 8th
‘11’s. 7th
‘12’s. Last

The new GM and director of hockey operations has been involved for a while and the results speak for themselves.

But - there are usually people out there willing to spend the money to hang that “Elite” tag on their benders.

Let’s see if that continues with this knucklehead in charge.

Wolf Pack and Pics are likely to benefit from this choice.

No, Rifles and Chiefs will benefit from this situation. Black Bear also bought the Wolfpack so I’m sure they will funnel their better players onto MassConn teams.

The guy running the show for them will make sure he sends people running. I’d rather have a cardboard cutout of Elmer Fudd running the show. It’d have more personality anyways.

If the Rifles were smart they would be reaching out to all the families now to try and poach as much as they can.
