Oh yeah, the USA Hockey Winter Meetings were a real barn burner. Bullshit. They were no more exciting than any other meetings according to the multiple people reporting back to TJHN from inside the room.
Everyone knew what was going down before the meetings even began. Its time for the myth mongering and public ass kissing to stop.
Seriously, the whole junior council idea is becoming laughable. When every league is not represented, the thing is a joke. A much more stream lined joke than in years past but a joke just the same.
The NAHL objected to everything the USPHL put in front of the council. They told everyone they were going to do this before the meetings began. Shocker!!! Please, its a joke to make a big deal out of anything.
The USPHL doesn’t even have a seat on the council and people actually believed anything was going to go their way? I don’t think so.
And lets not blame the Beezer for closing the doors either. Its what’s done every year. Does USA Hockey have a real freaking transparency problem? Hell yeah, but that’s not anything new. USA Hockey is about back door deals and trying to fix something that wasn’t broken ten years ago before they started trying to fix it.
Ohhhhhh and the big plan to legitimize the NA3HL? Really? You mean like requiring teams to “tender” players from NA3HL teams? Or “requiring them to “tender” NAPHL players? Seriously, its a joke that’s so old no one laughs any more.
Lets just stop the bullshit. The TRUTH is that nearly every major decision on expansion and franchise reactivation was tabled. That’s right, tabled until the double top secret USA Hockey executive meeting scheduled for next week in Chicago.
That’s right, a secret meeting in Chicago. Chicago is the home of? The USHL. The USHL has a seat on the executive, and so does the NAHL. The USPHL does not.
So unless USA Hockey comes up with some sexy deal to keep the USPHL in the family, the turf war out east will continue just a little longer.
Sorry someone from TJHN wasn’t actually in the room in Orlando, we had people actually involved in the process giving us information. We here at TJHN were all out actually doing important work like scouting players. You know, the real work. The work that matters to players.
