This age group desperately needs some qualified coaching. The selection committee owes it to the kids of this age group to go out and find someone.

I heard something similar to PS and MJ taking the team. And they want to take younger brother DS and LG jr on board who ran all the tryouts and were asked to coach this year but declined. Also heard that MD was taking YSE. Should be interesting if all is true.

Lets all agree that the AAA 1994 have had some challenges. This year and the past few. For those kids that stuck around this year congrats to you all. The real challenge will be to see how many are staying next year at AAA.

If you were hoping for a quick fix, not likely. The only plausible solution would be to see if the current AA coach would consider moving to AAA. Not likely given how much success and fun they are having at AA.

9:41 Regarding bringing back LM, as they say "That ship has sailed". Whether it is fair or not to LM, he has not been able to ice successful teams in RH. I don't think he was at fault, but you just get so many chances, and he's had three kicks at the 94 AA can. I just can't see the Coaching Committee awarding him to a AAA job when he was not able to reach .500 record at AA. Again, perhaps not fair to LM.

I'm thinking that rather than post on here under the guise of anonymity it might help if somebody actually CALLED the coach selection committee to see if the 94 coach is selected yet. I have it on good word that he has been - they are just finishing some details up as he is an outsider to the organization.

personally RS and DR need to be removed from the bored
ever since RS became involved, the association has gone down hill
same with DR
but yes as for a AAA division, the association needs to bring a coach with experience
a coach whos intentions are for the goode of the childrn, not a coach to say "ok look at me, i know **** about hockey but im a AAA coach`` such as IR
what ever the board chose, good luck to you
but i just cant wait to see all the good 94 kids leave and go to the city, whoch i what will happen!!!!!

First off all you guys coming on here and yapping have no cahoonas.
Number one Rawlins can say thank you for keeping most of the AAA kids in R Hill
Number two Rawlins can say thank you for keeping most of the
AA kids in R Hill
and then Rawlins F-----g my son after promising him a spot by bringing him the kids
Number three I told RHHA to bring Brian Penrose (non parent)_to coach the 94 AAA team and not the 91 AA team but they did not want to listen so here are the results no 91 AA team and the 94 AAA team is suffering. and this is going into Minor bantam and boy I feel sorry for the poor bastard that going to take this team for Bantam
As far as the AA team having success congrats to the boys and that the RHHA should see what talent was brought in and trust me it is not the coaching that hjas given success. (GO WATCH THE PRACTICES)
10:04 10:57 4:10 in other words maybe RS and DR I have not been on this site in ages and did not here of my name being on here until I got to Chesswood tonught
I got the balls to say or do what I want in person or here with my name on it.
DO YOU.
5:16 thanks for your support and others that keep me posted.
I will have nothing to do with RHHA as they are run like house league in their rep side and still be a farm team for the YSE.,
As far as speaking my mind ask your president if I have things to hide.
TO THE POINT AND STRAIGHT UP
You want to really know what is going on since I served on the board up until today give me a call and we will discuss before the AGM. 905 884 3777
Anything else leave me out of this unless you want to say it to my face.
Good luck to all the 94 kids

12:35am.They are not afraid to go play AAA.Quite a few of them have already played there.I suspect they enjoy winning instead of what's happened to the AAA team.
To the RHHA:Do the right thing and bring in a qualified
hockey coach.Not some guy that just filled out an application.
This team needs a very strong personality to right the ship.If you have to pay the guy a few bucks,then do it.You have plenty of cash in the bank.
Look what Kralik has done with the M.Midget AAA team.Find the 94's someone
like that.They deserve it.

94 year is not a strong year (at the moment) for wide-spread AAA talent. There is barely enough to go round to fill all the G and O teams. Plenty of kids very well-suited for AA hockey at this point. The main RH AAA talent is in the city and is in too good situation(s) to even think about coming back. This team (RH 94AAA) needs someone to come in that can get some of the bigger, stronger boys from the top AA teams in the G and O and bring them to RH with a group of 3-5 Rh zone kids to form a AAA team that will develop over the next couple of years. Need: strong coach who is familiar with kids/parents from the city and has contacts with surrounding O teams; parents willing to come from city in order to be mainstays of a AAA team; lots of patience and ice time for a new team to grow together. If the coach gets paid funds for doing power skating/skills- it goes with the territory. Best of luck.

12:13 you dont get it- many of these kids have been there, done that. Are now playing AA for a reason- not strong enough to compete regularly at AAA. Might be able to get 2 of this AA team and have them move up as a few of them have not played up previously. Its not an easy task at this point to find right coach for this situation.

To get a name (like Kralik or a better example Mike Gartner) you need to find someone who is available, has a kid in the age group (usually) and willing to take a terrible team. Not likely! So maybe someone with integrity and a solid hockey background who can teach the game and maybe not the flashy "name" would work.

As for the 94's, the RHHA should be congratulated for stepping up and picking IR for the 94AA. Just ask the kids if they are having fun. As for the practices being substandard, if you rate a team on how explosive or dynamic their practice is rather than their success on the ice, you are missing the boat big time. How many kids want to be on a team that has the best practices but can't win a game. Sounds like the kid who studies hard, does his homework, goes to tutors and still fails. Get the picture?

As for the RHHA, the current board has made some very tough decisions and chooses to go in a new direction. In my opinion, they have exceeded my expectations even though some decisions were controversial to one person in particular, LM.

As for LM, you say you are a stand up guy and will tell it to your face. If that's what "you" believe, than so be it. If you can come on this site and say that you have not spoken behind anyones back or commented anonymously on this site ever you may have one leg to stand on, can you say that? I am glad to see you have moved on to the GTHL and have found success. As for promising your son a spot, I couldn’t see that for a minute, perhaps you wanted to believe that as well, so be it.

As for the 94 AAA situations, why not celebrate the success of the 94 AA, A and AE program and look for a solution for the AAA. The kids on the current AAA team have and are enduring a very tough year and perhaps it may not get fixed but that is hockey and you can't win all the time.

Not sure what you were expecting. Don't know many people who would have stepped up to coach a very broken team. Just try to keep an open perspective and get all the facts. It serves no purpose to bash a new coach or team that is already down in the dumps. You all know the facts so act accordingly. Accept the fact that this is a very tough situation and give him the benefit of the doubt.

I think its fair to say they received 2-3 AAA players from a very weak AAA team. Just because they played AAA does not make them AAA players. Coming from RH you should know.

They seem to fit in nicely at AA. I would not for a minute suggest they are the best 3 players on the AA team. Can you argue with that statement?

The new coach will only be successful if he can attract talented players. Unfortunately when you are part of the LOR, coaching success mostly depends on your ability to recruit. Hopefully the new coach is bringing players with him.

Let's see...the hockey season is approx 26 weeks, with approx 5 games/practices a week, at 2.5 hours per, that's 26 x 5 x 2.5 = 325 hours Add 40 hours of scouting and team selection, 65 hours for scheduling meetings admin, driving etc. That's 430 hours! At 10K that's 24.25 an hour. Seems reasonable. It is amazing that there are actually any volunteers that make this kind of commitment.

I suppose you can always stay with the status quo. You pretty much know what you'll get with that by looking at the past few seasons. Spending more doesn't guarantee improvement but if there is a well thought out plan executed by someone with the right knowledge, then improvement will come. I doubt the numbers will be what is quoted but I'd be very surprised if the budget doesn't go up quite a bit.

Team needs an overhaul if they are going to catch BArrie or Markham. Get rid of captain and #1 goalie. They are cancer in the dressing room and overrated on the ice.

Difference between winning and loosing is not as big as people make it out to be. Many teams have had big turn around from one season to next. The right 3 or 4 additions can turn 5-3 loss into 4-3 win. Should be interesting to see what changes happen. Quite a few people looking to return to RH.

This team already has excellent goaltending, add even ok coaching (unknown for sure but guaranteed better than this year) with some proper discipline, add a few capable players that are currently playing on AA teams elsewhere (most teams will give release to advance a level) and you have a competitive team capable of beating several of the teams in the loop on any given night. Won't be top 5 in ETA but certainly able to be in the middle of the pack. Not bad for where this team has been.

Actually it is not 5k - coach errored in assuming how much Association wanted and always wants to over-estimate versus under-estimate. It is more likely to be in the 4k territory. He also stated that there would be a full outline of the budget items (though he said some are not set such as how much extra ice might end up costing) at tryouts. So there is no need to be concerned about the financial end.

There is need to be concerned with this guy. He is a paid coach. He has said that costs will be close to $5000/year including this salary. That’s alot of money for a team that will be lucky to win 10 games, and $5000 is a BIG increase in assessment from previous years. He has lied to AAA parents regarding commitments made to non current AAA players.

What commitments? Nobody will confirm that there have been any commitments. Probably most open tryouts in years. Some may not like that but when you win 2 games, to be expected. Competition is a good thing.

To get to 10 wins would be an impressive improvement. Lets hope you are right.

ok let me get this straight. you are upset that a new coach wants to invest more in a program that was successful in 2 games all season (although I doubt your number is accurate). you don't like the fact that a non-parent coach is being brought in and is asking for some compensation to take on the role (probably about $8/hr when you figure it out) which is the situation with other AAA programs both in RH and other LOR centres. you are angry he is actively seeking out new players and not willing to commit to the current team members yet. ok I get it now. you expect to be gone and you don't like that.

interesting. you'd think that if it was going to be so horrible next year you would be happy to leave quietly. hmmmmm...

For some unknown reason, it appears that many existing players / parents believe they are 'owed' a spot on next year's team. After a season like this there are inevitable changes and disappointments will result. The coaching decision is well behind us and as was the case with the 94 AA team, there will be a major turnover in players as well.

Maybe some among the current team could enlighten everybody on this forum as to the truth about why this team struggled so badly this year. Was it attitude, lack of team play, skill level, speed, coaching?? There is no need to name names, but it just doesn't seem reasonable that all current players expect or deserve to remain on this team.

change just for the sake of change makes no sense. players cannot get releases from other org's and the jump from A or AA to AAA hockey is a lot bigger than parents think - it takes time to adjust. with proper coaching the current group of players would win 10+ games next season.

Non-parent AAA coaches typical going rate $8,000 - $15,000 excluding the top end guys. Practices, games and tournaments over 8 months usually means about 150-200 events (better teams have more events). If you include travel time, gas and other travel costs, recruiting time, phone calls, planning, meetings, etc., etc., it probably works out to $10 - $20 per hour. This is not a get rich scheme if thats what your thinking.

Is it worth it? With pay comes greater accountability but no guarantees of better results. Some would argue you get what you pay for - for example this year's 94AAA team with a parent coach.

Many people would prefer to pay for a non-parent coach any day. Unless the parent coach happens to be a former NHL'er!

I agree, several AA players will or have already been recruited; that seems logical given their success. I disagree that the new coach will not give all players a fair shake, especially the current roster. He has no reason not to. Being an outsider to RHill, this coach has none of the common obligations, favors and pressures that a RHill insider faces. He may be able to actually pick and recruit the best players possible according to his scouting. What a novel concept!

Only 1 or 2 players on the AA team could make the AAA team, that is why they will stay at AA. The difference between AA and AAA is huge. Current AAA team has taken a season to adjust and just now is able to compete. Wrong time to make changes.

10:13 AM, the difference between a top AA team and a top AAA team is indeed significant. But factually you're speculation is way off base that only 1 or 2 players could make the team. in Richmond Hill, you happen to be comparing one of the very worst AAA teams in the province to one of, if not the best AA team in the province. Hello!! In this case, it is the opinion of most, including the RHHA that the AA's would handily beat the AAA's. Nobody believes the 94 AAA's will be hoisting in major banners next year but the team will clearly improve. This 'season to adjust thing' is not reasonable; just look at the AA's having replaced half the previous year's team. A month to adjust, maybe; a year NO. It is time for a change.

With such a discrepency it is only logical to say that there must be players on the AA team capable of playing and helping at the AAA level. The issue is, do they want to, because no one should be forced to play at any level " they don't want to ". No right or wrong answer!! Good Luck!!

It seems pretty clear that the highest ranking A and AA teams can compete / beat teams in one level up. The suggestion that in RH players will be forced to move up is untrue. It was 'floated' as a possible strategy for addressing the 94AAA dismal results, but wisely, it was never implemented or approved.

For the record - MB never supported 'forcing' players to move. However, in an intelligent move he is in support of not releasing current RH players for other AAA centres until he knows he doesn't need them.

Everyone needs to keep in mind that the coaching staff that will be taking over the AAA team are seasoned "professionals". Also they will be coming off a very successful year at AA-winning the OMHA's. The current AA coach is considered by some to be the best that Richmond Hill has seen in some time. The AAA team will be a winning team so long as it's filled with the top 7-9 winning players from the current AA team.

Here is the scoop as it relates to the 94's

- How many of the AAA players want to return? After this year many are so discouraged they were probably hoping to move down to AA.
- How many AA players could play AAA hockey. >>> remember, the AA players are smaller than most teams. A move to AAA with smaller kids is a non starter. I could see 2-3 players’ move up form the AA team but that will only help modestly. They need to attract 2-4 players from outside Richmond Hill with skill and size to play at that level.

I suspect that without external recruits, you will have a modestly stronger AAA team with 5-8 wins and a whole lot of traveling.

The AA team will not have the punch or size to compete at the same level as this year if it loses too many players. Probably a .500 - .625 team.

I would wait to see what happens at tryouts and judge accordingly. Could be a very long season of frustration for all if most of these rumors are real.

Good luck to all!

Remember that the coaching staff from AA has not been transplanted... IR did not apply for AAA and instead waited to join under someone with more AAA experience.

Small kids from AA will make the team in my opinion. Coach will be making a two year bet - puberty comes late for some but certainly not past 14 years.

Richmond Hill AAA hockey needs to be for Richmond Hill kids! We finally have a chance to take the best of the 94's and create a winning AAA team. Size is not as much of a factor in hockey, the AA team has proven this over and over again this year! Any AAA player from this years team that wants to play down should consider another association, I have been to all of their games and they are struggling as individual players let alone as a team, they could not even compete at the AA level. Keep in mind the coach literally recruited some AE players! Those players that are able to compete (2-3 of them) should remain AAA. I could easily tell you who they are.

Should we really by putting down MB before he has even chosen the team? We do not know nor should assume as to what he will do. As for him never having a head coaching position, there is always a place to start. Now I know that the response to the comment I have just made would be to start off somewhere smaller and I understand. But he has had coaching experience at the assistant level. He can take what he has learned from there and grow on it. You don't know what can happen if you keep the majority of the same players or completly change it. Is it really right to take the majority of your players from outside of RH in order to win more than 5 games?

The salary thing I believe is right. If MB is all he is hyped up to be, he deserves the salary. Personally, I would need a hell of a lot more money in order to even attempt to bring back such a mess of a team. Is it the team members that cannot compete or is it just simply the attitudes of the team members?

Best of luck to the current AA team now as I believe I have heard they are heading to the O finals?

To top it off the picks he made were very poor-AE's!!! Fresh faces from AA-RH is the only way to grow a winning team.

Sorry folks

To suggest your can win at AAA with small kids displays ones ignorance. You can have one or two but believe me, wait till you see what it's like when you play some teams with a lot of skill and size. The small kids will be hearing footsteps everytime they touch the puck after one big hit.

It is a big bet, moving a few AA players up to AAA, just hope the better AAA players stick around after this years complete drubbing. There is only one AA player who could easily play AAA but he will not have a good enough supporting cast without some AAA players sticking around and a lot of new faces from outside Richmond Hill.

For those who think AAA hockey should be for RH kids only. Get real. You should be in AA or A.

Try playing YS,Whitby, AP, - this kids are big and getting bigger. My advice to those hoping to jump from AA to AAA - eat your vegetables and hope you grow 5 inches and 25 pounds.

if size is the only issue (assume speed, skill and desire are good for competitive AAA hockey) does it not make sense to stay or move now rather than try to come back or move at the MM year? improve as a team while the kids grow. eventually all kids will get to a size where they can compete physically and maybe the two year horizon is the best view.

to 5:31pm a top 10 (top 5?) AA team in Ontario has only 1 player that can compete well at AAA? not likely!!! you would expect the top 1/2 of players would be capable of playing AAA at a competitive level. that leaves 7 or 8 players from the current team (maybe 4 or 5) and other teams (3 or 4). sounds reasonable to me.

For those of you that think size does not matter you obviuosly have not played AAA hockey. I can think of only on eplayer at AA who has the speed, skill and avg size who will be fine at AAA.

The rest will hear foot steps as the kids in Bantam will be much bigger than the AA team. Unless of course they all grow a foot over the summer.

If it were a non conatct game they would do alright, add contact, speed and size and they will here footsteps. They won't go into the corners and they will be watching the other players more tahn the puck.

I have seen many skilled players stop playing AAA hockey for this reason.

I guess we will have to see who shows up at tryouts. Hope for some outsider to be recruited o rhope you can convince some of the AAA to come back.

Many (or maybe only a few) in this forum are putting way too much emphasis on size. Yeah, the kid is 5' 11" 155 lbs, but skates like a drunk seal; step right up, welcome to AAA! Please! The fact is size is one factor, and there are plenty of big, fast kids at AA and A as well, some of whom have already played AAA. All other factors being equal, speed, skill and smarts will usually triumph over size. Now if you have a player with speed, skill, smarts and size, you have an unbeatable combination and he's probably already playing for one of the G's super elite AAA clubs.

You have obviously never played the game as a relatively speaking "smaller player". I have and I know what it was like and why some just cannot keep it up. Particularly at age 15-16 when size really does matter at AAA. NOTE: I said AAA, not AA, Not A. >>>>AAA

Well why would anybody respond, after all you did post the complete and definitive answer! OZ HAS SPOKEN!!!

Actually, I don't disagree with you many smaller players pack it in early, but lack of size is just one of the many reasons players fail at AAA and other levels as well. You can be big, skilled and fast but without the level of desire, commitment to training, courage and mental toughness you will also fail, just like the small guy.

When you played, were you limited by the wear and tear of the physical pounding you took, or did you start to protect yourself by avoiding the rough going and thereby 'withdraw' from the game?

Let me give another perspective. Take a look at what we've had in AAA over the last few years-size was present without skill (except for a few key players). A loosing team!! Take a look at what AA had over the last few years- size was again present but little skill. Look at the most successful teams and you will find that they are not sized "big". They are sized with skill. Intersting how on the AA team the least productive players have been the AAA players this year.

Well I guess you will find out soon enough. Lets just check back next year and we will compare notes.

As for the 4 that came down, you forget. They came down, not up. Why not ask them what it was like getting pounded at AAA. Wait until you see what it is like at age 15. If you don't have the size, speed and toughnest, you will soon find out.

This is my opinion and it come from experience. I guess I was the only one who packed it in and moved down. It is a whole different game at AAA but I will not convince you until you have actually experienced it first hand. IMO

Lastly, I would suggest that the AA team has 2 legitimate AAA players. One forward who could easily play at that level for the past few years and one D who use to play at that level. If you have not got the physical strength and speed you will be surprised. Good luck. Lets compare notes same time next year. It is just my opinion so don't take it as such.

AAA is a competitive division and I would agree that the 4 AAA players have contributed, though in my opinion it has been only one, aforward who has really shown that he deserves to go back up. I feel that many of the A joiners have also earned a place in AAA as have some of the AA players. The issue of size is irrelavent as was shown this year by the AA team.

The insanity that closes off a year is amazing. Year after year this time of year is filled with rumours and inuendos. This kid is leaving, this coach is leaving, this kid is coming in that kid won't make it. 99% of this of course turns out to be bs. I don't know about you but not a single post on this forum can be trusted nor can it be speculated as to who is posting it. I am sure we all have our suspicions but you just never know. AA parents have agendas that are focused on AAA and AA and AAA have their own agendas against other AAA or AA threats. It is very sad that parents have stooped to this level when the game is not about us but our children.

This is not a shot at the coach at all, just an observation....but did this team not have quite a few past AAA players that just didn't want to play AAA this year? So really you could have had any Joe Shmoe behind the bench and they probably would have still been successful.

But again...congrats and thanks for another banner!

Buddy, you need to seek treatment for your envy, delusional thinking and substance abuse. First of all if you are honest or if you actually know this team, you would know that that all of the players contributed in a balanced way to the success of this team irrespective of whether they came from AE,A,AA or AAA. Your premise that this team's AAA players were enough to win an OMHA title with any coach is completely laughable. And for you to say this was not a shot at the coach is as bogus and insincere as all of the posts you have made in this forum. Yes, your posts are easy to spot with their classic tell tale signs of envy, hate and personal animosity against this coach. Why you would want to slag a coach not even a full day after winning the OMHA title? Only you and your therapist can answer that. Good Luck with your rehab!

Players from this year's team came from the following teams:

4 AAA
7 AA
5 A
1 AE

AAA and AA teams were both last place teams. A and AE were in top 1/2 but had not done particularly well in the playoffs. So to say it was a sure thing that this team would be OMHA Champions would be totally wrong!

Not a shot at the coach, get real you low life.

The previous years AAA team was very weak and some players came down. The A team was very strong, some players went up. Not much unlike most hockey centres. You jab is nothing more than bitter jealousy topped of with a big glob of envy. Let me guess, your were pulling for Georgetown all the way and just had to get in one last Jab. This was the best year of hockey for most of these kids because they all really wanted to play hockey and were lucky enought to get good group of coaches.

Congrats to all and thanks for the memories.

As for the coach slagger, crawl back under your rock you insincere phony.

Of course you need talented players but it most certianly goes hand in hand with good coaches. Perhaps your definition of a good coach is somewhat limited 100% game knowledge. I would suggest you need coaches who can also deliver on:

Being Fair
Motivate
Enthusiasm
Patience
Persistence
Integrity
Like Kids
Sincerity And Concern



They go hand in hand - skilled players and good coaches win championships. You just need to expand your definition of what a good coach is and isn't. We have many examples of bad coaches and I suggest to you that although they may have known the game inside out, they were or are lacking in the above mentioned.

You can have skilled players but if they won't play for a coach or step up their game you will not have a winner. It is very rare to find all these skills in, particulary in minor hockey. In most cases, parents ruin kids minor hockey experiences, just butt out and ask you kid if they are having fun. That is all that matters.

this season everything is going to be a mess between the A,AA,and the AAA because the AA coaches son is moving up and the AA coach is also going to be the assistant coach,so they are bringing players up to AAA so the strong AA team is going to bot be as strong. basicly all 3 richmond hill 94 teams are going to be evenly suckish

5:45 It seems to me that according to you, it would be better if the AA players stay on the AA team even though they want to play AAA? It would be an interesting and revolutionary concept if players actually tried out, and played at the level of their choosing even though this might result in some or all of the 94 teams being 'suckish' as you indicate.

You are right that if any number of players move, the AA team will have to replace among others, their best player. Would this still be a good team, good enough to win an OMHA or OHF title? I guess it depends on who's coming and who's going and how many of each. What is clear is that the AAA team will improve significantly, but I wouldn't be clearing any spots on the mantle for any championship hardware just yet. I don't think that should be anyone's expectation, of course that's what many said about this year's AA team about the same time last year!

You are quite wrong. I believe there was just one naysayer last year, guess who? Most knowledgeable people knew the AA was going to have a great year with RR going up and a few AAA comomg down. I suspect now that their best player is moving to AAA they will be a better team. However, you may need a few more supporting players with the same skill level that can keep up with him. At AA you can get away with it but certainly not at AAA. Size, speed and skill will eat you alive. Hope for some new talent to show up or it could be a long year.

Truth be known, RR should be playing in the city ( elite teams )or YSE. He needs the supporting cast to make him even better. It will be a tall order to think he can carry the AAA team to the same success as AA just had.

My opinion, no offense intended, no response needed.

Can the AA team win OMHA/OHF next year if only RR and 1 or 2 others leave? Based on what I've seen there are some quality players at A that are ready to make the jump. Keep the core together and add the right parts and it could be a repeat!

If everyone stays in AA RR is a non factor, and some changes would make the team actually stronger .

Not a chance. I am not trying to be a cheerleader for RR but this kid has all the tools to play at a high level. There is a huge difference playing A & AA and when you take away a highly skilled player that is clearly one of the best players on the ice at the A or AA level in the OMHA, you lose a lot. Why?

The opposition will quickly figure out that they have to key on him as soon as he hits the ice. He can carry a line but the problem is those that play with him cannot keep up. Take him away and you may have an ok line but you don't have the speed, scoring or defense and you certainly will give the opposition less to think about. The problem any coach would have is over use but then again, you have to make trade offs.

Good for him to step up to AAA, it will not be as easy and unless he has the supporting cast that can keep pace, you will see several skilled players, they just won't be on your team. I am sure YSE would love to get a player like RR. Now there is a challenge!

PS> I cannot see the AA team even making the Semi’s of the OMHA team next year. Too much player movement will take place this year. The AAA team will improve somewhat but based on last years record, that won't mean a lot

PSS> This is an OPINION, DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONALLY.

It seems to be a recurring theme from at least one poster who suggests the AA team's success this year was all but assured because of RR and 4 AAA players. Great additions no question; however the team was successful in large part because of its depth and balance throughout the lineup. In addition to the 4 AAA players, the team acquired 5 A and 1 AE players who also made fairly significant contributions.

Absolutely without question the AA goalies were outstanding and easily the best tandem anywhere! One was from the group of A players who moved up, the other was a returning AA player. Again, huge contributions from ALL the players and yes especially the goaltenders.

Hey, I was not trying to say that the only reason the AA team won was due to the addition of 3 AAA's and RR. Not a chance. It was a team win and you are right, no disrespect for the goalies as they have won many a game for the team. Solid every game. In fact, the one goalie could easily play AAA from what I have seen.

I was making an observation that RR brings a lot of skill to the table and makes any team better. It would be interesting to see how he makes out with an elite team of equal or better skill level. {Certainly YSE would like him but can't get him.} Just curious as to why not try the GTHL Marlies, Red Wings, Jr Canadian etc... I really think this kid has the goods to play at a much higher level and the challenge would provide a better picture. I am not trying to create an exodus to the GTHL, however, if the AAA team is going nowhere or no new players show up it will be another long year.

Hey, nothing wrong with just playing with your friends and having fun but I can see this kid going pretty far up the chain.

IMO. No offence intended

Copied from March 3:

What commitments? Nobody will confirm that there have been any commitments. Probably most open tryouts in years. Some may not like that but when you win 2 games, to be expected. Competition is a good thing.

To get to 10 wins would be an impressive improvement. Lets hope you are right.




AN OPEN TRYOUT - WHAT A NOVEL CONCEPT. IMAGINE HAVING YOUR KID MAKE A TEAM ON HIS OWN MERIT. THAT'S NOT AAA. BUT MAYBE IT SHOULD BE!!!

that's right, it is not AAA and because of that you cannot react in this fashion.

whether it should be in a perfect world is a question that should be answered once we enter into a perfect world.

until that time AAA coaches need to react before tryouts.

Have they cut the two newmarket AE players from peewee yet - stupid picks if you ask me. Where is AH heading - back to Newmarket too or is Dad going to drag him to another ****ty AAA team

Over the past few years I do not recall ever seing a RH AAA team win 25-30 games. It will be much improved but not a 20+ game winner, no way, no how.

Best guess is 8-12 wins at most.

It is not surprising that I read this here. I have followed this team for years. The old coaching staff are remaining quiet about the situation - they are both upstanding individuals who were the first guys in years that were not in a conflict of interest.

Now that PS and his puppet JR are in charge we will see this team go back to what it has been in the past: bad or purely dismal and built strictly upon politics.

Attendance in coach R's hockey school can be viewed as implied. Curious why the RHHA would take a 6th rate coach into this team- he has had no success with his nephews team. Also interesting how he was handed the team for next season, it never really opened to competition. He has done nothing to elevate the players game this season,truth be told the better players are talking about leaving the RHHA for better pastures!

You have got to be kidding!! I guess playing AA or less has become a strain for you and your kid and has started to played on your brain. Shake it off bud and give yourself some hope, if AAA hockey is out of yur kids league enjoy wherever he or she plays and leave AAA for the better players. Changes WILL be made and SCC WILL field a MM team next year with new kids and with a renewed hope of playing better hockey, who cares how it will end and in the big picture it doesn't really matter. ALL the key players WILL be back......

The main difference between Brown and Rumble is that Brown put this team on the map. He made the tough decisions - he was separate from the organization, its politics, and the BS that so many older AAA coaches bring with them as baggage.

After years of disgrace we finally iced a good team. Now I'm afraid we are going back to the same old, same old.

Are you KIDDING ME?! What a joke! Brown made the "tough decisions" alright. Like not teaching the kids any systems, pk, pp. Like missing a ton of practices and all or part of every one of the (three, countem) tourneys we were in (none of which were high profile tourneys, either). Like wasting a ton of our budget on that treadmill business. Like buggering off at Christmas, leaving our kids without a tournament to play in (ever heard of the Marlies Classic, Mr. Hockey Coach who makes tough decisions?) and insisting that they do even MORE of the stupid treadmill while he watched hockey in Ottawa sipping his beer.

Don't get me started. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

Mark Brown is brutal. Get off this website, Brown.

Thank goodness a real coach agreed to help out for the balance of the season and thank goodness that real coach, JR, is taking the team for Minor Midget.

Brown, go back to schooling 7 year olds and leave our team alone. You did enough damage already.

yeah... that would be pretty amazing icing a turn-around team like ours with no systems... get your head out of your rear. just because we didn't take our STILL mediocre team to high-profile tournaments is no reason to get your knickers in a knot.

and now that I think about it... your one-sided analysis of Brown says nothing about what he actually did do... and THAT IS MAKE THE TOUGH DECISIONS when it came to who is a part of this team and who is not. he also designed a season that made this team successful. within weeks of his departure we were coming apart. i wonder why?


and by the way - nothing wrong with rumble. it's just that he is run of the mill, same old, same old. he will be a very average coach for a less than average team next year - and there is nothing wrong with that. my only beef is that we could have been MUCH better had we stayed the course.

Nothing wrong with what you did Mark but you should have after seeing good results stretched them out until they broke; now Rumble gets most of the credit. Your MAKE THE TOUGH DECISIONS" comments deals with personal that all year found it tough to compete what will happen to those kids next year. I have found out in my rather short hockey life that parents really do know something about hockey and they aren't as stupid as coaches make them out to be so start being a little more specific about how and where you would have taught them. Next item is a simple one "bench managent" both of you suck when it comes to knowing how to win (and winning at AAA is what its all about) both of you have commented on playing time and fairness and how you could go to a short bench but in fairness to yourselves both of you neither know how to, when to, and why you have to shorten the bench. EVERY coach that is considered good shortens the bench and both of you will wallow in poor to average until you LEARN this VITAL VITAL VITAL lesson. Rumble and Brown will NEVER scare any team but Santi even scares me he Know how to win and more importantly why he has to win .

I follow you until the last sentence where you say:

'Rumble and Brown will NEVER scare any team but Santi even scares me he Know how to win and more importantly why he has to win .'

What does that mean? Maybe you need to reword it; I just can't make sense of it or your reference to Santi.

His first game behind the bench your third line players didn't see ice till the 8 min mark of the first period, we saw powerplays and a pen kills for the first time and most parents liked it. You gotta be a make the real tough decisions on the bench and only Santi can do it ,both you and Rumble are looking foward to next years employment and can't see the big picture and the preperation that is needed to become a very good coach. Both coaches fail the grade when it comes to bench management and the need to see your players acheive (great player) status is overlooked be playing hide a players on each line thus underacheiving. Mr Santi knows the buisness better than both of you and can get players where they dream of going and the carnage is within the parental ranks somewhere both you and Rumble fear to tread.

It doesn't take a man to shorten the bench... only a very small boy trying to be a man and feeding his monstrous ego. Face it Paul - Rumble nor Brown are reading this thread. You are the only coach small enough to think it worthwhile.

And why are you so upset with Rumble all of a sudden?!?!? Crying because he doesn't want you back? Maybe you can get daddy to replace him too.

From the other SCC thread:

As Rumble coached the 93 South Central team for the year just finishing, please provide a list of players from the 93 SCC team that are on the draft list.

As try-outs have already been completed for this AAA team who is left from RH? At last count 7 players "cut" and one with the brains to get out fast!

it is a pathetic political nightmare.

cutting richmond hill boys.

watching two idiots recruit on behalf of the team.

firing a program of excellence coach who finally had the team going the right way.

talking out of two sides of the mouth.

emailing kids that they are cut.



be glad that you're out of it.

Correction: At last count 9 to 10 cut from the tea. Team is set all before try-outs. Special thanks to the committee that appointed this coach- it smells of conflict of interest.

Excuse me but did "the letter" not get sent? Were there not cuts made? Do you think that these coaches would have left the team open, waiting for try-outs with hopes that9-10 so called better players would just show up?
