What's up with the Lovell boys coaching the Generals NA team? How could they possibly have time for this?
How many teams is TL actually the head coach for?
it doesn't-just asking but thanks
My money is on them getting it right.
I tell you why because they are building a 2800 seat hockey rink in Attleboro for the first franchise into the USHL. Thats right people you heard it hear first. That is the goal to turn the Generals into a USHL team, first on the East Coast.
Without Joe Lovell behind the bench...

Question. How does my kid benefit from him coaching another team? Every year the two of them disappear more and more and their programs get diluted. When you write a big check thinking someone is going to coach your team and they don't show up it's false advertising. The post about the caps in trouble with the Giants coming into town is funny. They are no different from any other organization. The caps will be just fine in a better league with coaches that actually show up.
Maybe he's just a man with some sort of intellect and doesn't fall for the hockey BS. Maybe he's just a guy who refuses to blow club owners that have fooled parents. Especially non-hockey parents who are gullible. Just sayin.
Generals lost both games again this weekend. Today 10-2. That the hockey gods (Lovells) we're supposed to be the savior? Let's see what the blue/green/orange kook-Aid drinkers say now?
What's your excuse for your youth coaches not showing now? Can't seem to coach at the youth or junior level.
You're really getting your moneys worth!
Wow, talk about bitter. Sorry your kid got cut.
What coach out there is capable of turning a team around in two weeks?! Get a life.
None of that matters, they're at the nicest facility in the United States.
Generals lose next two games to the same team they beat last weekend. 5-0, 4-2.
They are the only owners that I know that actually get on the ice. Every owner in the EHF and other leagues sit at home and collect checks. They know every kid in the organization by name and put the time in. Taking over the Generals is a great hockey business move, they now have a team at every level. They aren't stupid, they now have the ability to retain and develop their best players until they are 20 years old.
fusco at wizards on ice for skills all the time
better question is why would they let them coach. amazing what ppl will do for $.
It is amazing that everyday the Lovell name comes up on this board. Clearly the Lovell Brothers are doing something right to be on the minds of you Dbag I mean Dboard readers. 99% of the people in the organization love it and pay top $$ to stay and develop within the org, while the people who are not speculate and dream up negative things to say about them. I would say all this free advertising is paying off, as they keep building an empire and expanding. All the other orgs, are still just trying to maintain the status quo and field competitive teams, while they continue to add teams and continue to filter the best players towards the flagship in Hingham.
And the bulk of the negative comments come from people who either have competing programs (or coach there) OR people that complain about the price and the money they must be making off of hockey. They complain only because they don't have the cash to put their kid into the program or they long for town hockey of 20 years ago where everyone played with their classmates, dad's got to coach and everything was done on a shoestring budget.
If money is the issue, you picked the wrong sport. If you long for neighborhood sports of yesteryear there is no sport left for you.
Simply and completely false. Anyone with 2 eyes and goes to their will see that this just isn't true.
Sell the Ice, because the Lovell's are never their for anything or any skills. They may know 5 kids by sight and most kids wouldn't know them if they bumped into them. Families pay for the Lovell skills by the Tim and Joe. Instead they get U16 players teaching skills that would rather be elsewhere.
Straight lie and you know it.
My kid plays for JL. His attendance is 50% at best.
And how's your kid doing?
Fine thanks. Program doesn't deliver what they sell now though. Used too. Not anymore. Got too big. Skills still ok though.
