This is the second lateral puzzle. I got huge help from Ilari Henrik Aegerter (www.ilari.com/blog/), James Bach (www.satisfice.com/blog/), Pekka Marjamäki (www.how-do-i-test.blogspot.com/) and Michael Bolton (www.developsense.com/blog/). I'd like to thank them for helping with the setup, clarifying a lot of questions, bringing insights and of course a lot of good time!
Please remember, I don't want you to ruin the puzzle for anyone in the comments section so if you want to solve this, send me an e-mail or ping over Twitter so we can sort out the details. Thanks!
There is a 15 year old boy studying in a high school. He loves ice hockey and is the best of the team from his year. The team has been excellent in the high school championships. Recently, the dean and the teacher’s council had a meeting where they decided he is so good they must dismiss him from the team. Explain why.
