Game reminded me of a better version of a Town Hockey midget game. Maybe it was me being away from high school hockey for a while but kids just blowing-up other kids with kamikaze checks with no regard for taking penalties and a lot of grabbing and slashing. I can't imagine either of these teams going far but it is still early.
I once heard the guy that runs Pilgrim say it was a "state of the art facility." I think he was serious.
So if the premier public school hockey teams are horrible - what are the options. $40k-$50k at a prep school? $15-25k at a CC school? What if you have 3 kids - looking at $100-500k investment for high school hockey? Yes, I know the elite kids get the prep $$$$, but what about the kids that mature late and develop at 16? If public high school hockey is horribe, and you dont have the $$$ for prep - I guess you hang them up and focus on another sport?
Tier 1 = "crappy hockey in front of 5 people"?
Very informed/insightful post. MOron.
Framingham made it to D1 finals last year and they were bad....it's only getting worse!
Sometimes the roster turns over in high school hockey
