You can't really blame St. Catharines if they declined to host..not after the debacle that was last year!

Re: Official Off-Season Signings

Its the same with Minor Hockey...AA in HEO is equivalent to AAA in the OHF. I guees you need a clear and present thought process to make a decision to pull semantics out and designate it AAA! Only in Ontario...lol

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

There should be no "gentleman" agreements especially when both leagues compete for the same players. Would love to see this league take steps to get back to the days where kids actually WANTED to play in this league but alas...the crew currently steering the GOJHL vessel seem inclined to just play s...

Someone answer this for me.....

I heard through the rinkvine the following: If a GOJHL team has a player and the OJHL wants said player, the maximum that GOJHL can "request" is $1500 for said player. Now, if an OJHL team has a player who wants/needs to go to Junior "B" for whatever reason, that OJHL team can charge whatever amount...

What does that say about the Captains of the GO ship...if the OJ is rudderless than the GO is a ship with a thousand holes and this bunch is using nothing but fingers to quell the flow of water into it! :lol: :|

Head-scratching decisions.... 1.) Website..still waiting for something...ANYTHING that does this league, it's players and it's fans justice 2.)

Re: GOJHL Board

The floor has been mopped with the GOJHL the past few months! There are more important things than "protecting" the players.

Blow this thing up, and replace the decision-makers within the GOJHL as it appears they continue to make head-scratching decisions!!

Re: New OHA Board Proves to Be a Disaster

The new OHA board failed every team and players!!!! The trading deadline was changed to 7pm across Canada and the OHA board failed to be educated enough to manage the OHA. Over 62 trades are now null and void. This is the biggest disaster in the history of the OHA. This is truly what happens when s...

Re: OHA Changes

I assume Hamilton, Pelham, Fort Erie and Lockport from the GH and probably London from the west based on what has been said. So that should tell you who decided to work with the masses. The more interesting thing is going to be what potentially happens to those 5 as the year progresses.
