So...what is your definition of "noteworthy"? Because from what I see, there were a few "noteworthy"(interesting,significant or unusual) selections taken in the NA draft. I think that's why you're scratching your head in disbelief. Mind you, these picks aren't the same kids with names you've heard over and over, who have been touted as the next NHL draft prospects and have been to every showcase that their parents have dragged them to to get this "noteworthy" status I believe you're referring to. So Yes, they're not familiar and definitely not vanilla, but take some time and watch some film, get to know these kids and when you're done let us know if they stand up to your "noteworthy" expectations.
I guess your kid didn't get drafted
Still here, watching you troll. It seems you know a lot about what it costs to play for the Generals NA3HL. Your probably upset you couldn't write a 10k check for junior. Judging by the time you post you should probably be searching for a job so that you can.
Keep trolling...you had all the money answers the other day, now you don't want to get in to it? Very curious as to how you knew the $$ answer earlier, is that what they wanted from you to have junior play. I think I'm more sad for you than the last four you continue to share your wisdom about. Good luck next season where ever you wind up.
I must have missed it. I tjought the kids were on the hook for $300 a month to go to their billet family for living expenses. What's this talk of $10k?
Are you serious? So it sounds like you've shopped around a bit. What do the USPHL teams charge? Premier & Elite?
Here's the thing. The original article points out that the Mass kids had a pretty good showing in the NAHL draft...Mass kids showed up plain and simple, who cares why. Any kid playing in Mass should feel pretty good about that and any kid that got picked should be proud of that, contrary to what the other guy is implying.
The NAHL is free and very different than NA3HL which is play to pay!
The only thing they share in common is the jerseys they wear.
These guys are off to a rough start in the NAHL, and by the looks of it, not getting any better. I don't think they could beat the majority of the USPHL & EHL Premier teams?
0-16-1, is certainly no way to start a season. Can we discuss again who they drafted and why?
Good point. When they drafted none of the names were familiar and some looked like they were coming out of less than stellar programs. Currently they have four Mass kids....give me a clip board and a sign-up sheet and I can land 12-15 better kids in three weeks in March trolling the state high school championships let alone tournaments.
And kids, there is no scholarship money in D-3....none.
Good God. Do they need a little scouting help or what?
what they need to be doing is trying to recruit the top "uncommitted" players from the USPHL & EHL. Even though that "bar" is low for talent, it must be better than what they have on ice the now?
Northeast Generals just signed the Lovell brothers definitley helps for right now but are they going to become the owners?
What does this say regarding the local talent they drafted? Did they draft (hire) the wrong coaches?
