Nah68...... You struck a chord here on something that also begs the question on development.... By reducing the number of AA teams in Saskatoon will this increase their competitiveness? I suggest the answer is yes. Obviously if you remove a few players and you have the most elite, you'll be a better team, goes without saying. Regina is an example of this. Now, by going to 3 teams in Regina, in my opinion, does not say much for the Hockey Regina development model for its kids. There should be no reason why Regina and Saskatoon should not be able to field 4-6 quality teams but apparently it took Regina to drop drastically to be competitive. It comes back to quality coaching from initiation through pee wee and people coaching without an agenda. If this was the case there would be a few more kids able to play at AA.
