This is pretty much what happened to us. We might have had 1-2 players who were PPG or close, but nobody scoring 1.5-2 PPG. Nobody that was just flat out dominant.
Our league kept taking our top scorers because "we were winning too much", not because they were scoring too much.
And because a lot of those guys were friends of the team or struggled at higher levels, just about all of them have quit playing hockey or at least competitively. Which sucks because most of them are GREAT guys.
Oh yeah, our league, only the top four teams make the playoffs.
