The CHL has fired back.
“We are of the opinion that no junior hockey league in the world has made more changes to support the best interest of its players both on and off the ice as the CHL,” David Branch, CHL president and OHL commissioner, said in a statement highlighting everything from drug education and anti-doping programs to concussion management, charitable works, scholarships and initiatives to combat emotional and physical abuse.
The increase in ticket prices, from what I've read, would start out as $1.00 - $1.50. If nothing else, I think the CHL would have to become more accountable in the handling of their "employees".
Taylor Hall, drafted first overall by the Edmonton Oilers in 2010 after a three-year career in the OHL, said juniors deserve their fair share.
“Junior teams make a lot of money, and when I played for the Windsor Spitfires they were awesome to me. I had a great time and can’t say enough good things about them,” Hall told reporters in Edmonton this week after signing a seven-year, $42-million contract extension with the Oilers. “But I was making $44 a week. It is a little bit unfair.”
From what we've read, "awesome" has been the "Spitfires way".
"Mess up tomorrow, don't mess up now".
