with the exception of Nipissing, those are close games and you cant really judge how a team is going to do based on losing 1 or 2 goal games. If they were blow outs i would agree with you and say "yeah, could be a long season for the Lions" but look at the scores, pretty evident they are missing a sniper. They just signed Perugini in net so goaltending wont be the issue
Coach Wells stated York picked up Perugini, their roster has Perugini listed as 1 of 4 goalies. I highly doubt Perugini would stick around to be the 2nd or 3rd goalie, Wells has stated Blair will be their starter. 6 exhibition games and only Blair has played. Nothing like taking a good look at a goalie in a game situation!!! I guess he will pick his backup from what he sees at practice. York will sit at the bottom again this year.
Perugini has signed with the Markham Waxers JR A of OPJHL and played his first game leading them to a win. The York coach should get his facts straight before making announcements. Besides the next window of opportunity for Jr A players to go to university would be in January, when the 2nd semester starts. To answer a previous question a player who plays one game for a CIS university then wants to transfer to another school would have to sit out the following year and therefore could play at the new school starting in year 3. I believe this is correct, its the same for football. Someone might correct me if I'm wrong.
Regarding changing schools, I believe there is some exemption if the NEW school has some specific course(s) or programs that the OLD school did not have. As well, there may / should also be a provision for "hardship" issues where a student can nolonger afford the living expenses of playing for a away from home school and needs to move "home" and go to a local school.
There are "hardship" or humanitarian type of exemptions. For instance, if you want to transfer to a school near your home to be close to a sick family member the CIS will sometimes waive the need to sit a year for transferring schools. That may be the case for financial need as well. I know it happens - there was a UPEI hockey player a few years ago who transferred to Brock (or Manitoba ?) and didn't have to sit out a year.
