Why is this happening? Doesn’t make any sense. How much will that impact not spreading the virus.
We are all in this together, well, unless you're from another state. Then we want nothing to do with you.
So will PHC just play against themselves, NH, and CT teams? How will I get my fill of cowbell ringing in my ears without the RI moms?
Wtf is wrong with people. Has common sense gone out the f-ing window. This virus has little to no effect on kids and we are going to limit kids from Rhode from coming to Massachusetts. Please someone tell me this is a f-ing joke. The fear mongoring and all the bs surrounded by this is absolutely ridiculous. I am past the point of aggravated
Sorry RI. Wear your mask. Buy some property in Attleboro.
So it’s a bender swap. Kings and Giants will still stink.
All kidding aside this is BS. My boys have been with SSK for last 4 Years and they don’t have a team to play for in RI. This is not fair for the kids. There has to be a middle ground with MA hockey.
Goes back to the fundamental issue...RI Saints are cheaters.
(You coaches and parents know who you are)
How is this a surprise? RI is not considered a low risk state, so you can't visit MA if you're from RI.
So unless your kid goes to school in MA or you work in MA, you knew this weeks ago.
No. Clear no ri players on ma roster this yr.
Also no ma teams can play ri teams
In case you don’t want to watch the whole video this is addressed at the 58 minute mark - Kevin K states it is a fluid situation and based on the current ban RI residents are not allowed but once the ban is lifted this obviously changes... no need to panic.
And you are gullible enough to believe the ban will be lifted? I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn and I’m available anytime to show it to you. I only accept cash but it has to be exact change. See you next year when we are playing in CCCP.
Mass numbers will go up to the point where it doesnt qualify. They are already close to it.
So how many organizations are about to see chunks of their team disappear?
PHC, SSK, Giants, Devils, Hitmen?
Who's got the best town program in RI? Need to start making calls.
also dont forget MA players if play or practice on a RI team cant play in MA without a quarantine before a game.
good luck boys.
Looks like a lot of Mass-based PHC Tier 1 kids are going to get to move up to Elite teams to cover the spots of RI based kids on PHC elite teams who can't play due to the need to quarantine for 14 days before playing games in Mass.
MA Hockey representatives should be wearing bras and panties since they have no balls to stand up to the Governor Baker regime.
Yep. Already heard one ri kid using teammates MA address now
You are assuming any of these orgs care one bit about USA hockey rules. They break them CONSTANTLY.
They misrepresent their rosters all the time in tournaments, even the National bound regionals. Happens every single year.
Bottom line is nobody cares one bit about what USA Hockey is going to about rostered player location, especially if they're not National bound, which most teams aren't.
Now if a certain state agency was to catch wind of a certain team on the border using RI players, well that's a different story..
Isn't it as simple as, RI teams contact RI players signed up with MA teams and offer them a spot, and MA teams contact MA players signed up with RI teams?
Can't each league facilitate the transfer of payments between the orgs?
Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Coaches reached out to us today. The team has a few spots to fill bc of RI player rule.
Find billet homes for these kids. Simple.
How is PHC playing but RI Saints can not play in Massachusetts.
This is some type of conspiracy.
Any update on when Rhode Island kids can skate in mass?
