    Why in the world would Summerside Minor Hockey invite these off island teams that are clearly a level above our 'A' teams only to have them trample all over us? Great confidence booster for our 'A' players, at all levels. In looking at the results from the multiple 'A' tournaments that were hosted here this year, there were only two Island players that were named all-stars. It's not that the island teams aren't good hockey teams, it's that the teams coming from away are playing at a level higher. Why not invite off island 'C' teams so our island teams can at least compete? If we have our choice next year, we will NOT be entering our own tournament. Pretty sad when a local team doesn't even want to participate in their own tourney. Give your heads a shake SAMHA.
