Re: 16 Year Olds

I probably worded it wrong I meant Chatham AAA DEVELOPED PLAYERS.The issue is why Chatham signs these kids when in their minds they are not worth investing the time to develop these players.

Re: 16 Year Olds

This is not about naming players so you can try to discredit them.It is about the number of Chatham players who find themseles playing in Leamington .Chatham AAA and former Maroons who I do not think you could say they would not improve this team!!!

Re: Leamington Komoka series

IT is easy to blame the coach .I .am not trying to defend him but the most important thing in hockey is the team.I had older players tell me the young guys have to sit we did.Does that sound like a person with the teams best interest at heart.If a young guy scored he would not be rewarded he would b...

Re: Chatham Maroons 1 Win in last 6 ??

Chatham still puts too much emphasis on goal scoring relies on goal tending to save their bacon.They give up the puck .Way too many odd man rushes and turn overs.Every time I think the coach has figured it out the team takes a step backwards.Big game against London coming up lets hope puck support a...

Robinson worth much more than the two fine players they traded for him saved the coaches job tonite sloopy game lets see how we do against FLYERS if the coach expands on the use of shorter shifts and the four lines.
