Re: USA Hockey Rule on Tryout dates

It's a joke - USA Hockey and their rules.

Org's pick and choose what "rules" to follow.

If every org followed the rules, 1/2 the coaches and others wouldn't be on the bench or ice to begin with.

So, when it comes to USA hockey rules - understand that almost any rule has been broken many times.

USA Hockey is another money grab, pure and simple.

Most of these teams have already been picked. This is true especially for the teams that expect to compete for the states. These discussions have been going on behind the scenes for months. With the exception of the final 2 or so spots the teams have been selected. Tryouts are just a formality. This was true before the rule was ever put into place as well as in prior years
