I don't know this guy that runs IceLine. However, I don't understand all the complaints. Every club, despite being labeled non-profit, is a business. If TP, or any club, charges more than their perceived value, customers will go elsewhere. He had every right to do what he did to the previous club; it's his business. Customers will ultimately decide whether it was worth it. TP had hundreds of kids last year. DVHL would be foolish not to grant membership.
The focus should be on the DVHL, not TP. They have their own issues that never get resolved. That is where the complaints should be focused. There are no practices in place to police the clubs. Clubs using illegal players and the only enforcement is by other clubs. That's the DVHL's job. We can spend days writing about all the DVHL issues. That is where the focus should be.
