Re: Ouch!!

They are competing within their own division and will play against the BCHL Divisions Champion for the BCHL Championship.

Great PR move by the BCHL to get these kids back on the ice for meaningful games!

Re: Ouch!!

Still curious as to the legal implications of this...they are still members in good standing. Looks like someone circumvented their own Constitution. Are there not penalties for teams who refuse to play? Should there also be rules in place that allow these teams to play? Afterall, their actions in n...

Ouch!!

With 5 AJHL based teams leaving the AJ for the BCHL...Hockey Canada's junior A division appears to be coming apart at the seams.

There appears to be life outside of Hockey Canada. Hopefully this league's leadership will finally see this as factual!!

Re: The Flood Gates are now wide open

It all comes back to the $400k. No Junior "C" team will come to the table if that is the asking price.

As you stated...don't even know where this league will be in 5 years!

They are an incoherent, incompetent, confused bunch! This all started going downhill with Mark Tuck. You need people in places who will make the tough choices.
