Re: Sutherland Cup Semis

And yet Mendonca is the playoff scoring leader. Go figure.
But it's not just those 2, it's a total team effort in the bad penalty department.

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: Horseshoe Finals

The leagues top scorer, Justin Kyle, didn't play last night, and it was like the Canucks figured they wouldn't win without him so didn't really show too much interest in the game. Total lack of hustle or effort on their part, while St.Kitts skated rings around them, out hit them, got every loose puc...

But every other team was operating under the same conditions, and no one else took such drastic measures. There has to be more to it than that.

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?

Anyone here from St. Catharines, Niagara, Welland or Thorold care to comment??
St,Catharines, Welland and Port Colborne are all IN Niagara. Do you mean Niagara Falls?

I can't fathom how a team that openly declares itself NOT part of a league still plays in that league. How is that possible?

They haven't had double digits scored against them so far as opposed to the frequent teens and 20's of last year. And several games have been surprisingly c...

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.

Re: St.Catharines vs Niagara Falls

In their last 10 games, they've lost to Ancaster (twice), Welland, Fort Erie and Thorold, as well as Caledonia and St. Kitts. In that stretch, they've only beat St.Catharines and Buffalo. Granted, 5 of...

If this happens, wouldn't it mean that a Junior B franchise would become available in these 2 cities, IF someone wanted it? I realise that it's extremely unlikely due to ice times, advertising, etc., etc., but just wondering.
