Response to statsy, you are getting emotional.
This is what is so puzzling. Durham ,longtime power of women's hockey. Lot of class, but sometimes Durham overkills the meat. For instance andy team going to Durham's tournament in the past has experienced an occasional loo-loo. Overtime rule, a player commits a penalty in overtime, guess what? no penalty! The polayer is excluded from the rest of the game but the team isn't penalized!!Bizarre.
So bizarre is a good way to describe what happened with the Midgets last year. Consider they didn't even show up for their "home" tournament, their lacklustre league play, their elimination from contention in the playoffs, losing to Markham again in playdowns(3rd Time). Their Pass into Provincials handed to them in a weaker pool by a OWHA compromise that is out of order in the constitution. Their abiltiy to get the job done questioned at every moment. And we know they had some great players. Now go ahead a mere 9 months, same team, higher age group -Junior AA. Same players except for 3. Aren't you asking a lot of a team to be at the top of a league of 15-21 yr olds. Could it happen, yea, maybe but you have no right to expect that this team will excell.... and that is their challenge. These are the Facts!
