The D league was supposed to have 4 teams; 2 folded right before we started the season. So, our wonderful D League team was stuck against mostly B leaguers. It was pretty, especially since every B-C league team was allowed 1 A leaguer, and every B-C team had been together for AT LEAST 10 years.
Wow, what a nightmare.
Yikes! That would be a nightmare.
I wish our league could do that too, but there's simply not enough icetime in our area. I tried to book some ice for the beginning of September at a 2-pad facility but every hour of ice was already booked. Between junior and travel tryouts, there was no time left over.
I swear, if I can scrounge together $10,000 somehow, I'm going to buy my own rink using Custom Rinks. Then I'll never have to worry about icetime again. And I can dominate all the 10-year olds in my neighbourhood and feel like a superstar.
