Your image of what the boards job is and the real job of the board are different. You can tell teams a million times to submit things but if they don't then sometimes you can't do much. You can tell teams at the board meeting that next year if enough votes aren't handed in then there will be no awards once again. There is no set in stone "league law" that there must be awards. If teams wanted them bad enough they would vote on them, if not, too bad.
This forum has been created with the purpose to constructively discuss college club hockey. We encourage you to freely discuss any topic you wish, with the caveat that you keep the discourse within the bounds of good taste. While good natured trash-talking is fun, thought provoking and acceptable, any replies that turn personal, disrespectful and/or disruptive of the intent of this forum will be deleted by the moderators of this forum.
Our intent is to build up and promote college club hockey and its teams. We need to work together and support each other to make this happen. We already have enough critics of club hockey. Let's do our best to keep things amiable on this forum, as not to give them any ammunition.
Best of luck to ALL teams!
