Pretty sure junior hockey has hit an an all time low with the joke of a new Knights and Canton Cubs folding...why not just combine teams? Better yet, why not have additional bad Junior teams???
Say what you want about USPHL, way better run league and product.
Hey idiot this just shows you have no clue what your talking about because that’s exactly what happened. They combined teams and playing under the New England Knights in Raynham.
Canton Cubs did not fold. NA3 decided to merge with generals affiliate. Makes sense. Ladder development to NAHL Generals where Canton not affiliated with anyone. Will be direct pipeline that USPHL, EHL cannot match. Will be exciting to watch. Kids get to stay local not end up in Iowa or Nebraska.
This is a funny thread to read. Name how many kids from the NA3 team of generals actually made the NAHL team for the generals? This will tell you all about your “ladder of development”. That is like saying the elite level of the USPHL leads to anything.
It’s a way to fund the NAHL team you bafoons. A good U16 team would put 2 touchdowns up on the NA3 teams.
Ladder of development....good one!
All I know is no one playing in this league will go to the nhl
JL is coaching that team. Does not take a rocket scientist to see what’s happening here. Same coach NA3 and NAHL team.. nothing else to say. Bet you didn’t know that?
Riddle me this butt boy....why wasn’t he on the bench last night?
Wonder if it has anything to do with having a new baby and hard to get a babysitter you trust for a newborn on a Saturday?
JL no longer coach of Gens
Lovells should be embarrassed. Knights Jr team all U16s and 18 rejects from local HS, BA and Giants...
Not touching a puck in a hockey game...Ladder of Development!
Wow you are misinformed...gens don’t even charge entrance fees anymore because they get like 10 parents that go to games. Know your stuff before coming on here and spewing crap.
There is a reason you aren’t in or run a business!
They absolutely do.
Sad that Lovell’s are taking this approach to expansion. Word on street is of all of their FS teams (BA, Giants, Gens) none have full teams, locker rooms, set schedules, asst coaches, actual team travel, busses, etc...all a mirage. I’ll take the USPHL professional teams over them all day!
Oh yeah, and the competition? Would rather my kid at the right level than travel out west and get lit up every tourney. No development value in that. The same way a bad U16/18 won’t develop playing crappy Juniors.....
The road to the College Club Hockey team is not paved by full teams, locker rooms, set schedules, asst coaches, actual team travel, busses. It's $4,000 a year for a team you should be able to make right out of high school.
Erickson and Locke are both good guys who have the kids best interest in mind, unfortunately the NA3 as a whole is awful hockey with the exception of the Jr. Blues and the Metro Jets. Jets seen the writing and left along with its entire division to the USPHL. Jr. Blues and Jets would better serve their players by getting into the EHL.
Whatever BE. Tell us again how many kids make the NAHL team from the NA3 team? Exactly. None. Car salesman.
Totally ladder of development!
Lovells have hit an all time low...used to be good...
Means we’ll, but doesn’t know how to recruit or teach the game. Also, works for an owner that won’t spend a dime to make a legit program that can draw talent and compete. Nice Porsche though.
Teams going Kaboom
Anyone actually care about the kids that committed to this team? Does that even matter?
