I agree. If a 16 year old player is borderline at the Jr. level whether it be A or B they should go and play Midget hockey, and play at a level where the will get more ice time and develop.
The talent pool of 16 year olds varies from year to year. I have coached teams with 4, 16 year olds and other years I had none.
