I wouldn’t make this so much about the Quakers. They will just rebuild like they did years ago. The problem is going to be what it does for the sport. The rinks ownership groups and individuals will now see that the can raise the rates and if a club doesn’t pay it , they can toss them and keep the players.
Like I said it’s not about a club it’s about the sport. Rising rates will eventually hurt every parent and kid.
Graves may be a dick and surrounding himself with idiots that he can pass off things on when they break the rules and he acts like he didn’t know.....but as an owner and his bottom line he was smart....it has made his bottom line go up.....problem is now it’s a precedent that has been set and will no doubt lead to higher prices.
Why wouldn’t it? There are no repercussions.
I going to sit back and watch the complaints come in when rates go up.....then just wait till he or one of his lackeys takes a board seat!
If he was good for the game it be a different story.
Hope he proves everyone wrong but I doubt it. He hasn’t built a good team himself in years....he just overpriced and acquired someone else’s talent.
