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

I wonder if that thought on AAA has anything to do with the fact that if you look at the past OHF champions GTHL teams have probably won about 90% of the championships.

I am not passing judgement on anything or anyone. It's just news I had heard. I have no idea what it all means. Just hope nothing but good comes from the change.

GOJHL Board

I understand a new board has formed to oversee the GOJHL. Also heard the new board is actively looking for a new commissioner. Hopefully this is all for the best.

Sarnia ?

Heard at the game last night that 2 more players have left the team. The Allair's from North Bay are not returning. That makes 11 that finished the year last year that are now gone. Team is doing ok but what is going on that all these kids are leaving?

Re: GOJHL Issues

To be affiliated under the OHL still requires HC sanctioning and they eont get that without dealing they the OHA and OHF. What's the next plan?
Can't the Inc just move on and play hockey this season. The continued turmoil is causing further discredit to the league.

Re: GOJHL Issues

I think you missed the point completely. There is no question they can operate as an independent. But with a dwindling talent pool going independent will me some of the best talent found in the GOJHL (OHL draft picks) will not play in an unsanctioned league and remove the opportunity of playing game...

Re: GOJHL Issues

Just how bad would a B league independent of HC look? Think about the fact that if they operate outside HC then any OHL draft pick that has any desire to affiliate to the major club could NOT play in a league outside of HC sanctioning. Teams struggle to find talent now. Inc going independent is not ...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

Here's an idea. We take a page from Ronnie Reagan's playbook. Remember the air traffic controller mess? I say the OHA punts all the teams and makes them re-apply. Not all will get back in unless they agree to follow the rules of the governing body. :lol:

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

You can make arguements for and against the kind of league the GOJHL is or isn't. The reality is that the league over the last 15 years has weekend. There are many reasons for that happening and one of them is the exodus of players to other higher leagues. The fact remains there are just some things...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

Then I would have to think that any kid that has been drafted by the OHL would leave the outlaw organization. They risk to much staying in an unsanctioned league.

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

So if this ends up going where it looks like it is and the 15 stand on their own as an independant outlaw league. Outside OHA, OHF and HC. Just how many players will stay and play or bolt to HC sanctioned teams?

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

Well as a league and part of the OHA under the OHF and HC all teams are part of the GOJHL. As for which teams are a part of the GOJHL Inc , by fees payment, I am not sure. Apparently there are less then before that are a part of the Inc but whom I do not know for sure. I could guess at things but gu...

I am not so much against the Inc. I am more for the player. At the end of the day it's supposed to be about the player. So far there is nothing the Inc have done or are doing that is about anything other than the almighty dollar. If your position is more about the stature of A (main push of the Inc....

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

And where does this state the fee is reduced? I believe the fee is still $750. Teams are required to pay $7500 by yesterday and then another $7500 earlier in the season. At an average of 20 players a team that still works out to $750 a head. Given the listing of what this buys you it's no wonder kid...

Re: GOJHL AGM Today

GOJHL falls under the OHA.....NOT the GOJHL Inc. The commissioner is not associated with the OHA and is a paid employee of the GOJHL Inc.
