Stirring the nest again...

Note to Junior Council and Junior B officials... I'm still waiting for the regulatory documentation that scholarships have a detrimental effect on NCAA eligibility. By "regulatory documentation," I mean the citation from the NCAA, not someone in junior hockey saying "because we said so"... I still keep asking myself that if this was such a big deal at the meetings in Colorado this summer, why was there no legislation promulgated? This game has problems enough with rumors and hearsay, so they need to either put it down in black & white or drop it and let teams go about their business.

The life after hockey article is excellent. USA hockey needs to get more of this type of information out to everyone going the junior route.
