Re: 2018-2019 Season Predictions

Listowel Cyclones 43-5-0-2, first Won Sutherland Cup It took Jason Brooks one day to move on from winning the Sutherland Cup. Listowel’s head coach will have plenty of time to reminisce about the franchise’s first provincial title when he’s done coaching, but the summer gave Brooks a chance to rech...

Re: GOJHL Issues

Now let's just throw in a rumour heard at a Junior C game last night- a group from Burlington has put in a bid to buy the GOJHL Brantford franchise and move it to the Wave there (worst plac ever to wtch a hockey game). I am not sure that it is worse the Brantford Lions Park Arena https://thumbs.gfy...

Re: GOJHL Issues

According to the OJ forum, the OHA hasn't actually approved the move from Milton. They were saying that their home games were being moved to their opposition's arena, because they aren't approved to play out of the Gretszky. Perhaps that's why they're still wearing their Milton uniforms. But they s...

Re: GOJHL Issues

Brantford's JR A game tonight postponed because the OHA won't send them referees.

Are people seeing it now? The OHA is a mess and creating the problem.

2018-2019 Season Predictions

Back with the same format as the last two years. Here is my predictions. Have seen 6 of 8 teams in pre-season games thus far. Sad I won't be in St. Catharines this weekend, but oh well. Let's get the season going. Team Standings 1. Elmira - Goodwin/Cameron/Dubecki could light it up, depth up front a...

Re: 2018-19 Predictions

Other than Lansink and Herrfort, Listowel is made up mostly of young rookies this year. Elmira, Waterloo and Kitchener are the teams with experience coming back this year from what I've seen in pre-season. Some mix of them at the top. Cambridge, Listowel and Stratford in the next pack as younger tea...

Re: GOJHL Issues

If the kids are good enough..the OHL will come knocking. HC will have no bearing on that. Sure the hockey purists would like to believe that HC would be able to influence the ownership of OHL teams but I beg to differ. Besides, there have been countless times where HC has taken NCAA players for it'...

Welland ice problems carry into another year! Game and Practice tomorrow cancelled! This team needs to be baught over by a new younger team ownership much like Leamington just was!
It also effects minor hockey there, so not just the junior teams ownership.

I disagree, allowing an unsanctioned organization like INC to dictate how a sanctioned league will operate and who is allowed to participate would be the definition of letting the inmates run the asylum.

Re: 2018/2019 Schedule

Let me try to simplify this for you. If you are an older player, what exposure are you getting after 2 showcase games (if not with an OHL team at the time) during the remainder of the season? Maybe a player of the month award? If a team has 6 20 year olds, 7 19 year olds, 5 18 year olds, 3 17 year ...

What does a GOJHL Commissioner do? That is the $431,250 question. He has nothing to do with creating a league schedule or the release of information or even ensuring that issues are resolved in a timely manner. One has to ask what his function might be.

All teams remain under the OHA as long as they pay their OHA fees which they all have. The issue is that three teams in the shoe did not pay their GOJHL fees last year but still received the privileges of playing in the GOJHL. It appears that this should have been dealt with last year as other team...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

The "dissenting teams" for the most part see cost as a reason for key player departures. It shouldn't cost a player more to play at the Jr B level than Jr A, but it cost less or nothing to play Jr A in at least 4 Canadian leagues. As an example lets say a player pays 2K for league and team fees plu...
