Re: Will there be a league this year???

Ice Pak, you seem to be one who is involved with the team this year so I am not going to argue with you. I am just stating past experiences. Maybe things have changed over the years. However, I have heard from a parent that the out of pocket cost this year, not including the regular number of sponso...

Re: Interesting article

From what I saw and heard, Andy Brake coached the team last year. He can save himself money by letting Langdon run the practices, and he run the bench...just like last year, and the year before that, and the year before that....

Re: Will there be a league this year???

It was very very obvious. You know, it is one thing being proud of your team and the kids who are on it. That is awesome...pride is wonderful. But, beating up on teams every game by 8 and 10 goals, to a point of just going through the motions, is nothing to be proud of. This lack of competition, and...

Re: Wings Management needs to stop leaving fans in the Dark!

Who is Austin Ivany? Anyway I think Mr. Brake hinted a while ago that he don't care about the regular season. He just wants to have a team by January 10, in time to compete for the Herder. You fans are just financial support leading up to that.

Re: Will there be a league this year???

Yeah. I guess you're right. It is only the players playing in such a wicked AAA midget league like this one that we have here in the province this year, who have a chance. Now, after all that, and after reading the write up on Hockeyscene.com, (obviously submitted by someone in St. John's) I think I...

Re: Cats starting line-up

Stevens is certainly not the 7th Dman in that group, I can assure you.

Re: Will there be a league this year???

You obviously don't know all the scouts. The Confederation Cup has always been scouted. You would be surprised to know how many ears and eyes are honed in on more that just AAA. There are lots of advisers out there, friends of friends in high places so to speak. Like Alan Andrews of Andrews Hockey a...

Re: Will there be a league this year???

Blast, excellent points, all of them. It is very obvious you are a real hockey guy. Fan, I don't know your age, you could be around the same age as myself, but, when Mike Dyke, Doug Hardiman, Kenny Elliot, and many other awesome players played at around 16, they played both AAA and HS. (and house le...

Re: Will there be a league this year???

Well Fanof Habs, if a kid wants to play both, and it is totally possible for him/her to play both with a little cooperation and common sense from his/her coaches, then they should play all the hockey they want to play. If you were paying loads of money for your kid to play AAA and HS hockey, and he/...

Re: Will there be a league this year???

To Nlfann...Let me fill you in on some other facts that you conveniently left out. First, the Gander HS hockey team had practiced every Tuesday and Thursday night for about 20 years, or since they started in the league. When the AAA team decided on Thursday night for their one practice a week, the G...
