Ya, this guy really seems to have driven a bus right through the GTHL's Constitution & precepts, capitalizing on the ambitions of players & their parents, pay per play. Theres a relatively new Junior 'A' league operating down on the Westcoast of the US as well thats similarly structured, though non affiliated with Hockey USA. Pay per play. Greg Jamison, the guy going after the Phoenix Coyotes and former CEO, still Minority Owner with the Sharks just last summer bought a franchise in that league. Im assuming the calibre likely equivalent to Junior 'B' as it exists today in rural centres peppered throughout Ontario. A notch below Tier II Provincial, on par likely with decent Midget AA to AAA perhaps.
