  7. 5 double-header weekends - all but one happen after January. 5 weeks with no games. Only one stretch between games longer than 14 days. 2 Thursdays, 1 Tuesday, 1 Wednesday, 1 Sunday. Games on Black Friday, New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day. Hopefully, the full league schedule won't be as lopsided as last season's was - especially for some teams.

  19. So, you're saying Chicago and Columbus still have a shot?
  20. Welcome to the Forums, Molly. We look forward to hearing more from you - especially once next season gets started.
  21. “Federal Prospects Hockey League? Did they give up on the idea of being “Professional”?
  22. I get your point. I’m just saying a player’s mistake means he doesn’t score or, worse, allows the other team to score. A ref’s mistake can result in bench-clearing brawls, unnecessary PIMs or someone exiting the game on a stretcher. I don’t yell Ref you suck at any level. I object to refs in our league that clearly demonstrate their inability to safely regulate a game - provided by an organization that has higher standards for who they send to officiate kids than they do for semi-pro adults.
