Problems in Paradise

Was at the Welland/Pelham game tonight and got into a conversation with some fathers of Pelham players. According to them, many players have asked to be traded and as we know some have already have been. Ownership and head coach were the main topics of the conversation.

Time will tell.

Re: Strathroy Rockets

All teams in the Horseshoe ( excluding Buffalo ) including Welland charge players. The charge per player ranges from a low of $1500 to as much as $3500.

Re: Someone answer this for me.....

The agreement between the Jr.A's and Jr.B's prior to this year would allow the Jr.A's to take no more than 3 players from any one team. They would pay the Jr.B club $1500 for each of the 3 players taken. Open negotiations would take place for any further player movement from said team. There was als...

Re: GOJHL Board

You are dead right. Instead of pursuing teams to create a badly needed 4th conference, the decision to chase after the Collingwood location was a selfish decision by the GOJHL Board in hopes of establishing a ridiculous cost for a Jr.B franchise. Team owners, led by a poorly advised board had many o...

I was at all 6 games in that series and the Siskins did most certainly take their foot of the pedal. A good example was their lack of disciple in game 5. This team has mostly played a disciplined brand of hockey this year and they returned to that style in their last two games. The goaltending situa...

Waterloo, London Suthy Finals

Well game 1 went pretty much as I expected. London got thrashed by a much faster and well balanced Waterloo squad. Hope the next three games have similar results but I doubt that they will. Waterloo has not been the most consistent team during this play off run, example up 3-0 against the Falls in t...
