The Death Pool – Its Not Junior Hockey When……….


January is the start of a new year.  A new beginning for everyone to tighten up and make the rest of the season meaningful.

But does everyone take that opportunity?  Oh hell no.  Do the teams who really need to clean up their acts get their shit together?  Ummmm that’s a bigger hell no.

So, without further delay, lets celebrate these shit shows who just cant get much more shitty! Ha Ha Ha

Its not junior hockey when your team has gone through 74 players already this season!  That’s right everyone, 74 freakin players!  It has to be some kind of record for absolute incompetence!  Lets hear a big round of applause for the NA3HL’s Rochester Icehawks!  You guys are special!

Its not junior hockey when you are in second place in your conference and your team has a losing record!  That’s right, second place with a losing record and 19 points behind the first place team!  But hey, the Kalkaska Rhinos still have 13 games left, and only 3 of them are against a team with a winning record!

When teams with losing records are making the playoffs, you are not playing real junior hockey.  Just pointing that out to you kids in case you cant figure it out.

Its not junior hockey when your assistant coach, who pulls double duty as equipment manager, starts charging players for skate sharpening because he hasn’t been paid in a month!  Seriously, charging for skate sharpening?

Its not junior hockey when you show up at the team fitness center for a group work out and learn that your membership that you paid the team for, hasn’t been paid to the fitness center!

Its not junior hockey when you ask your head coach why he has started showering at the rink every day and he tells you its because he is sleeping in his office after he got evicted for the team not paying his rent.

Its not junior hockey when your Tier III coach openly tells the team that he hopes some guys don’t show up for a game so the team can fold!  Seriously this happened!

Its not junior hockey when the league you play in is talking about expansion after they had multiple teams fold and multiple other teams currently playing would be better off folding.  That’s right kids.  Look for a new round of massive Tier III expansion in 2018!

Stick around everyone we got some good stuff coming up!
