Dude, glad your kid got his varsity jacket. Saying that, plenty of kids to fill spots doesn’t mean it’s good hockey.
so reading comprehension is not your strong suit --- the poster stated HS was 'fading'. don't see where the talent level is mentioned.
Yes, seems like there are plenty of interested customers given the number of high school players and families. Presuming you have a high school aged player, you should know by now that what's good for the hockey business isn't necessarily focusing on the highest quality. Why focus on the top of the pyramid when you can sell to the base?
