Been there, done it and will do it again. Kids having fun, great parents, great coaching staff. Hopefully we can add a few more wins. If not, oh well. My kid and your's is not going to the NHL. Kids who learn how to lose with their heads up because they know they tried hard and did not give up will walk away with much more than those who "expect" to win every game. Sure it's a great feeling to win. But win or lose live goes on. And when the players can leave the dressing room with smiles on their faces that's when you can say great job. As far as the association... ALL have their problems and these people do their best. They VOLUNTEER their time and efforts for the sake of the children as all associations do. I'm with other associations and as I said before all associations have their problems and skeletons. Especially when they have to deal with complete morons who screw them in the end with because they are crooks or just plain assholes. Try saying someone nice about someone for a change. It feels better and remember that kids are on this site too.
