"The Green Gaels have acquired Brock Levick in a multi-player trade with the Markham Ironheads.

Levick, who is in his final eligible year of junior lacrosse and currently attending Medaille College, will join the club for their game against the Oakville Buzz on Thursday, May 10th at the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex.

The 5'11, 195lb native of Newmarket was acquired by Markham prior to the 2010 season from the Newmarket Saints, and has scored 89 goals and 84 assists over 67 games between the Saints and Ironheads.

Brock will join a strong offence and will help complete the right side of the floor along with 2011 Eastern Conference MVP Dylan Goddard, Jordan Saunderson, and Connor Latimer."

Just saw that on the website, any ideas who Green Gaels gave up to get Levick?

She:kon!

Since they are in Bowmanville, I would suspect the lot at the old Canadian Tire.

Kelusky was likely going to Peterborough to play "A" anyway - they own his rights.
Malloy played Junior C last year - wasn't getting offered a B card.
Lafontaine played B last year, but wasn't offered a B card this year, you can seec it on pointstreak.

Good trade by the Gaels they get a guy who will dress for them, good trade for Markham if 2 of the 3 sign.

If you are not offerred a "B" card are you not effectively released and entitled to go to the next closest centre? If that is the case Malloy having never signed a "B" card with the Green Gaels (I assume) could have gone to Markham without being traded. Lafontaine having played for the Green Gaels in the past but now being released I think is free to go too. I "think" I got that right ???

If a Jr. B team wants to keep a player, but not use up one of their team allotted cards, they can assign that player to their affiliate(s).  They would still hold the player's B rights.  If the player wanted a release, they can ask for it, but the Jr B team can set conditions on that release, which effectively makes it a trade for a year.   A second release of the player to the same receiving team makes that unconditional and when you are in a 'city, town, police village or rural district' loaded with talent, you don't want to give away anything for free.  Junior lacrosse is a business and players are the commodities used to create a product.  Altruism only goes so far.  For example, if I wanted a player to develop I could send him to another Jr. B for a year to play at that level.  Happens all the time.  But I digress.

The interesting wrinkle is this:

-------

R6.14(a)
July 2nd shall be the final date for signing or releasing players except that players released from any team on or before July 2nd may be signed in the same category (Jr. A to Jr. A, Jr. B to Jr. B etc.) before July 15th. No further releases shall be allowed after July 2nd, until January 15th of the following year.

R6.14(b)
Up to July 15th, Junior players released prior to July 2nd may re-sign with the same team, or if that team has its limit of twenty-three signed, the player may sign with the next nearest team which has fewer than the permitted number signed, and for which he is eligible. All players being signed to a new team under this rule would remain the property of that team. The player could not be released or traded back the following year.
NOTE: Players released prior to June 1st would be exempted from this rule and would be eligible to return to their previous team in the following season, if released conditionally.


-------

Jr teams have until July 2nd to sign or release players, by which time the Jr. B season is practically over (final regular season game is June 19th).  Now, ignoring all the other possibilities, the Jr. B team holds that players rights until then and they can release him or sign him.  Anything before that becomes, more or less, a trade.  Now if I was a GM in this situation, and I wanted to keep players around just-in-case AND the players wanted to stay around just-in-case, no one is going to be seeking any release to go to the next 'city, town, police village or rural district.' 

Because, there is always next year you see. 

I am not party to the all the details of this particular event, just my take on it generally.
