How much did it go for ballpark?
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.
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.
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.
