Re: Basement C Teams

There is just not enough quality hockey players out there. Unless a c team has 5 to 6 quality players u are spinning wheels. When Dorchester entered the league that became one too many teams

Re: Breaking the rules set by the OHA(In Response to 'Stats Primer')

The OHA has placed severe penalties for teams that abuse player benefits and incentives. If teams wish to go that route they will be caught sooner then later. Personally, I believe the OHA will eventually catch the cheaters if any are out there.
