67s just playing about how they should be really. They did well at the beginning of the season riding the big guns, but now reality has set in and the players that are not AAA caliber are starting to show. Big problem will be next year as there might not be that much in the bullpen in AA to improve the team.

A successful AAA team doesn't need every player to be a top scorer. Players need to understand and accept their roles. As long as they are good skaters, the role players next year will need to be bigger and stronger than some of the 67s players this year. There is always room on a team for a smaller player who is very skilled but if that player is trying to fill a checking role then he needs some size and strength. I bet the Sting and Ranger AA teams have some players who could be effective in this role.

This is really interesting. So despite the fact that all these kids made a AAA team, you don't think that all the players are AAA caliber. And this is for a team that is in 3 rd place!! If this is the case, what would you have to say about the two teams under the 67's? Are they even half AAA caliber?

There will always be better players on a team, but what constitutes AAA caliber is an interesting theory. I doubt anyone here really can define it, and definitely the league in Ottawa has no idea what it means to be AAA caliber. They have a set number of teams they want, and then proceed blindly.

Makes you wonder what all the fuss about AAA hockey is, and once again, why it costs so much, and what are you getting for that money. Seems to me that the consensus is that the league is watered down. Also, there is no development and you will ALL have new coaches next year.

Who wants to play AAA again??!?!?!

Rangers and Sting both have players who could make the jump to 67s next year although would any have a big impact? Not likely.
67s will need to tighten up the D for sure though.

Simple formula for deciding which level a forward should be playing at from Major Atom to Major Peewee and before Bantam is using goal per game .30 to 1.00 points per game typically says you are at the right level .
Anything more you should consider playing up anything less moving down might be a good option for development.

Does that also apply to D?

Not a bad tool to use, but I have seen many an ordinary player have inflated stats playing on a good line with a star or two. I have also seen a gifted defensive forward be forced to play with bottom level players to ensure they don't hurt the team.

Every team will have at least 3 new forwards next year. Top kids of each AA team will likely make the jump. It happens every year at AAA. A lot will change next year at Bantam. More kids will start puberty and the ones with high level skill will start to emerge. I see it on my kid's team right now where the kids who have gone through puberty have a big advantage and most of them have less skill.

Yep, 2-3 new F's and 2 D is the standard. It depends who try's out though. Definitely some good players at AA and if they tryout they'll be good AAA players.

Whoever thinks you should use a formula with points to see where a player should play is an idiot. Doesnt apply at all to D and many good role players on F it makes no difference how many points they get. Glad you arent a coach.

^I'm guessing your kid is a player who produces very little lol.
In any case, points show what kids are capable of. It typically means they have the puck a lot and are able to create offense. If your kid is not able to produce any offense they likely have less skill and struggle to get involved in the play. One can argue that some kids are "role" players and superior defensively but that's pretty meaningless at the age of 12. If you're playing AAA to be a 3rd line grinder that seems pretty silly.

Completely ignorant of how the game is played. Pay another 5k please so my kid can have ice and refs to log his minutes, idiot.
So take the top 17 point earners and you're good to go!

AAA is not pro hockey so role players are a joke. You take the 15 most skilled skaters and develop them. The grinders with no skill can play rep b. We should be developing high skilled players and not role playing grinders.

Development!!! that was a good one! No plan for ANY team here, and the coaches keep changing. You have to be joking. Looks like you want a team of puck hogs.

High skilled kids are only puck hogs when they're stuck playing with grinders...put them with other talented players and they'll play a beautiful team game.
