Re: Port Colborne Coming Back To The 'Shoe

The OHF are the ones who blocked the move. The OHA were too busy trying to figure out how Lockeport, Nova Scotia ever got a franchise in the GOJHL and why they are now just finding out :roll: Been to Lockport NS, nice historic town on the Atlantic coast, seems like more of a nice summer resort town...

Re: GOJHL Board

Here is a simple question for the new GOJHL board. When will Southwestern Ontario be represented at the A level? As noted numerous players depart every season for the OJ and many of the other A leagues that cover all other populated regions of Canada except Newfoundland. I trust there is a better pl...

Re: GO players moving to the OJHL....2019/2020

There are some shady so called advisors running around the GOJHL peddling the OJ koolaid as well. More realistically there are just glorified recruiters

Re: Strathroy Rockets

Not sure why anyone would assume the Rockets would be in the market for a change since they are now headed in the right direction. As the article above correctly notes, best season since 2014-15. That didn't happen by accident. Might be that the alliance coach did little more than review the final s...

Re: Maroons almost toast?

Should the season end soon enough for the Maroons some of the veterans have been added to teams in the OJHL. That may help explain some of the motivation issues.

Re: Prospects Games & Showcase

Hockey TV broadcasts in the GOJHL are generally much lower in quality compared to the Junior A leagues. Some have a single camera set high in a corner to capture the entire ice surface with no audio at all. Shooting through mesh isn't ideal but with many arena set ups there is little choice. Lack of...

Re: You had to see this one coming!

The OHA is more lenient with players that target the head compared to many other junior branches under Hockey Canada. The GOJHL does not have supplemental discipline rules like the Jr A leagues do. With the exception of some rare occasions only the minimum sanction is applied even with repeat offend...

I have to wonder if anyone within the GOJHL braintrust has considered a seeding procedure similar to this to prevent the worst team in the league from "earning" a playoff spot due to geography.

Re: Here's a radical change..LOL...

It would make the regular season meaningful if there were consequences such as no post season play for more than 1 team for losing consistently. Now that the GOJHL is free and clear of interference from the OHA they should be able to make this happen

Re: The OHA

The well being of the players needs to be the top priority at this point. Players with Brantford (aka Milton) in the OJHL and every team in the GOJHL have been adversely affected by the OHA's refusal to assign game officials protocol as a substitute for doing due diligence.
