I really do not understand some of this. I am not surprised that some hockey guys would back out of prep to move to a different opportunity. There is so much movement in minor hockey these days that it stands to reason the same factors are at play, mainly parent ego. Once a school has you locked in there is probably not enough attention paid and if someone else comes along and pumps your tires then I guess its your money and time... I think you make your opportunity where ever you go so, as long as he can still play, the decision should be best fit, not what will you do for me or how or where will you play him. Coming on here and talking about kids leaving like prep is a sinking ship is laughable. I am sure you want to believe that but most of these schools have been around prior to the last major world wide pandemic (Spanish flu).
I am sure they will be fine.
