Brutal. Screw with a 17 year old's life, because you can.

Karma's a bi*ch, and you can only hope it comes back around on some of these owners/GM's....

Why should GM trade a kid right away and get nothing of equal value in return ? Kid requested a trade cause he didnt like being in the top 6 fowards and being on the PP , so he can sit @ home and do nothing until clarke gets a fair deal , the kid wanted out , it wasnt clarke who wanted him too leave .

Too many injuries...no Norris, Nasca, Watt, Williams, Yarwood, Diaz....all top 3 line guys, most are top 2 lines......playing a good team in Ottawa and remaining of guys would have to be at thier best to win.

Ottawa is a good team, lots of speed up front and very solid defense plus Millen has played well. You have to play a good game to beat them and Nepean did not.

WOW.....you are putting alot of faith in a poster on here, who I am sure knows absolutely nothing about the situation. Here's an idea, how about if you want some info on a league situation have the sac to place a phone call to the team or teams you have issues with.

The majority if not all the posters on here can only speculate what the heck is going on with a given team or maybe just maybe they know somebody that knows somebody within a team dynamic and get there kicks posting stuff on here. I'm sure there is a valid reason for Seatters situation and if there isn't, well I guess the lesson would be, There is a time and place for everything...my guessing is, his, his parents and his advisors timing was poor!

At this level it is a business, for the teams, their owners and believe it or not the players as well!

And there it is, the standard answer:
In Junior Hockey: It's a business.
In Minor Hockey: I'm just a volunteer.

Both simple excuses for treating kids the way they do.

And what's with you guys who keep telling everyone that the posts here are all garbage and that no one should listen to any of it....yet you keep on posting and expect us to listen to you.

I'm the poster you're referring to, and it's YOU who seems to know nothing of the situation. Maybe you should take your own advice and make the phone calls to check the facts before attacking someone on this board. I personally know the Seatters and what I stated earlier is a fact.

The straight answer gotitans is "That it is a business"...do some investigation and see how much an owner spends a year on his/her team! In some cases owners spend thousands of dollars on a player via PDF, equipment, billets, travel, obtaining scholarships for players etc. Maybe what they should ask for in return is for the family of the player that wants out to pay back everything that has been put into the kid for his duration on the team.

What I do know is that if you look around the league more than a few players in the past couple of years have obtained NCAA scholarships due to these owners and gms that work tirelessly to assit these kids. CPC and JC got 8 kids scholarships last year alone and most likely would have gotten Seatter one as well. Check out the kid or the kids parents or the kids agent before you spout off on the owners and how THEY handle situations. You might be floored to find out how the team staff are treated by these folks on a consistant basis.

As far as your moronic statement about posters on here...go read my post again. I never once said a thing about posts being "garbage" If you don't like my posts then please feel free not to comment on them....In the mean time, proof read others posts before you go on a rant. It makes for better mor informed answers!

Talk about misinformed. The players got the scholarships, not Clarke. You give him more credit than he deserves. And I think you need to proof read your own posts before criticizing others.

A lot of the time it is the coaches and other members of a team that greatly HELP the chances of a kid getting a scholarship. Look at pembroke they the majority of their players obtain at least a CIS,major junior or NCAA before they leave the team. Yes they are a good team but they generally year to year get more scholarships then other teams even tho they sit behind them in the standings. Only the best of the best players in the league get them just by playing, the average to above average players get them with help.

As for the seatter situation. get over it. this happens to tons of players every year he is no more special then anyone else

Congrats to Brockville Braves Dman, Brett Garvey, on getting a scholly to Clarkson. I thought he was the second Brave to get a scholly to Clarkson, but Ferriera is now listed as uncommited on Heisenberg

Bit of an exaggeration maybe? Regardless of how may people it happens to, it doesn't make it right. What if it was your kid?

I think I will stick by my former statement and add one thing....Of course the "Player" has something to do with obtaining a scholarship. That should just be assumed, or I thought it would be....I think you don't give enough credit to the Owners and Gms that have a hand in it, more than I think people realize.

As far as Seatter, i'm sure your close personal relationship with the family wouldn't bias your thougths on the situation one bit I'm eaqually sure you have spoke to Clarke and the rest of the coaching staff and the lot to see the other half of the story.

Thanks for responding, your input is greatly appreciated!

I never said it was right...If its not your kid then stop complaining about it so much. I have seen and been 'close' to many kids that it has happened too. If they are going to play Jr hockey then they assume that it is a possibility...If they dont then they are naive.

Based on what you or someone else said before if he did not complain he would at least still be playing. He chose to play for the team to begin with

First of all, I haven't been complaining. Someone posted the question and I answered it. And I've heard from other kids who've played for JC in the past. He's not an easy man to play for.

Secondly, he didn't choose to play for them, he was protected and therefore has NO choice as to where he can play Junior A.

Please get your facts straight.

Walkley Road Massacre
Wow, if that is'nt the bottom of the season, we better get off this ship now.
No Norris, no second line, Debrincat & Milito played forward, both I feel are in their top 4 defense. I would add that the top line has 1 goal in the last 8 periods of hockey + no Norris on the second line= 2 loses and a lucky win in Smith Falls.
It seems neither Smith Falls, with 1 win in 3 & Nepean 2 losses in a row are ready to pull away from the pack. I suspect we will still have a log jam at Christmas.

Norris not playing really noticeble on PP and second line.

But isn't that how good businesses work. I know in my town MacDonalds get's to allocate certain kids out of Grade 9 from the local high school as MacDonald's employees. Then by grade 12, some only get a shift a month but tough, they should be thankful to have a job right. And forget about going across the street to Burger King because I will want a $10K CDF (that's chump development fee by the way) to transfer you. After all, I spent at least $70 on coffee watching you flip burgers in Major Bantam before attaching you to my business.
