  • As much as I would like to see this rumor be true, I just don't know how this happens or even why TBH. In some sense, why does the NHL have to care about a 'competing' league? How much NHL support is/was there for any of the current or past women's efforts? Not a ton. The NHL wants more fans, and young...

    Yep, welcome to the real world. A 'commitment' is only as good as the honor of the coach who gives it. The honest coaches are telling the girls now so they can at least find a new home or take a gap year. The dishonest ones wait until "admissions" rejects them, or "money was allocated...

    I know of and heard of many more current HS seniors and even juniors who have been told to PG a year, or have been 'de-committed' and are back to finding a spot somewhere. Not surprising the 'hockey factories' would take advantage of the situation. The fact is there are fewer spots now than in years...

    I think the major concern here is political will. The governor (or whatever provinces call their 'leader' and I use that term loosely) in Nova Scotia made a call that said 'well, the risk of an outbreak because the women's worlds is in town outweighs the pushback I will get from the women's hockey fans...

    With the logjam of players, unless someone is a clear upgrade in talent, putting your name in the portal is very high risk. I am just guessing but I suspect a lot of the names in the portal are of players who the coach told them their services beyond the original commitment are no longer required.

    Also to be fair - this is not just a Canada issue. The Ivy League has shown no spine or will either in terms of athletics. Most colleges look like they will try to hold in person classes next fall as I guess the pocketbook has been hit hard but still no guarantee of a fall season in the Ivy league,...

    To highlight the impact of will - USA Hockey Youth Nationals is still happening. Tier 1 girls in Pennsylvania, Tier 2 girls Colorado. High school girls just finished up in Nebraska. I don't know how it works in Canada but did any of the youth leagues play? It is crazy to think that, without 'protocols',...

    Not to turn this into a (yet another) covid thread, but most honest presentation of the data shows very little correlation to covid rates / cases vrs 'how hard' of a lockdown a state/area is in. Michigan right now has been one of the strictest lockdown states for the past year and currently has one...

    USA Hockey very quickly moved the U18 mens from Michigan to Texas to ensure it was going to happen. I don't know how things are going in Finland, but if the IIHF wants to guarantee this happens, move to a US state that is not in perpetual lock down mode. Aug 20-30th seems like the new target date.

    Very spinless and gutless decision - this needs to be moved out of Canada ASAP. There is a proven model on how to hold the tournament 'safely'. There is simply no will and as usual the women are thrown under the bus. If this was being held in Texas like the men's U18 is, there would be no issues. Same...
