Re: GOJHL 2020/2021 Season discussion

And so it begins.... Buffalo jr Sabres of the OJ taking a year sabbatical due to the current climate, will return for 21-22 season. Which means the Buffalo Regals are not far behind... only a matter of time. This isn't a surprise, since U.S. based teams wouldn't be able to cross the border. But the...

Re: Buffalo Regals

How can these teams make a go of it financially?
Do you mean based on attendance? Brampton, Brantford, Fort Erie, Buffalo and ,guess who, Caledonia, are all at the bottom of list. Obviously, attendance has little to do with survival.

Re: St.Catharines Falcons puzzling moves

A lot less talent (I don't think so I see two points difference between all four players) also the two players coming over from the falls know how to back check.
Exactly. From what I've seen so far, I think St.Catharines definitely got the better of that deal.

Collingwood is in its first year but is one of the top teams in the league, has the highest attendance in the league and Justin was their leading scorer. Does anyone ...

Re: Sutherland Cup Semis

One only has to look at the players penalty minutes in the playoffs. Canucks have the top 3 and 6 of the top 10, led by 'why is he even in this league' McCabe. Stupid penalties and overall lack of effort has doomed them.

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

Do I have this right?
GOJHL is a Junior B league under the OHA.
GOJHL Inc. is a group of owners of teams within the GOJHL that charges players to play on their teams.

Does GOJHL Inc. have any authority to make any decisions (rules, policy, etc.) about the GOJHL? What exactly is their purpose?

Although Buffalo is an extreme anomaly, each GOJHL division has its week sisters, just like any league in any sport. It's part of the game.

Fort Erie goalie scores empty net goal
He was just the last FE player to touch the puck before a NF player tried a pass out from behind the FE net and it went all the way down the ice into the empty net. He played a fantastic game also, to go with the goal.
