This blog has seen it's better days. With Krebs, patchy, TTrain, braggenrights and company gone, I believe its time to kill this board.

I wish it wasn't. I would love to see more discussions about JG hockey but the lack of discussion is hard to argue with.

First response to my posting to retire this board took 4 days. There have been 4 total entries in December.

I rest my case.

The board has taken a hard fall. I think part of it is due to the kids. They are more into Twitter and other social media. They don't care about these forums anymore.

The number of responses is low for this board but the number of views is pretty high. For this thread it shows 305 views and 4 responses.

I believe it is just a pain in the @$$ to register.
The youth hockey board is slowing down too.

As kids get older there is going to be turnover. It should be easier for new members to respond. Let people respond as "guests" until they decide they like it here and want a name.

The good old days of yesteryear were the greatest - when kids actually knew how to write in more than 140 character phrases. It's a shame because you just can't get a decent poke at other teams using twitter. I keep looking for "USHSHO" gold in the JG forum, but come up empty handed every time. It might be time to send this forum out to sea. At least JG hockey is alive an well!

Looking over the remnants of the old JG board definitely brings back some great memories. The posters of old have all moved on, and like most other hockey forums, the JG forum has paid dearly in the aftermath of the twitter popularity explosion.

On the bright side, the JG level of hockey today features more talent than I've ever seen. Highly recommend that anyone a few years removed from the level (such as myself) get out to a game. Great entertainment for nothing but the price of gas.

Like I said earlier - time to retire this board. No posts since mid November and that was by LPH looking for rankers.

There was precious little discussion even last year when two very strong JGA teams played 7 overtimes in the state title game, and then one made a nice run in the USA Hockey national tournament. Yes, it's sad, but if no new blood appears soon, this board is quite assuredly dead.
