They don't hang participation banners for showing up and getting blown out. Enough said.
Yeah, 5th in the final polls, a banner at your rink, a D-I title, the memories of going undefeated your final 7-8 games, a celebration on the ice at the Garden, float in the town 4th of July parade, newspaper stories, a great hockey end of season banquet..
Better than limping home on a quiet bus after getting blown-out by some regional All-star team when you're a bunch of kids from the same town ending your losing high school career.
You win a tournament, you get a throphy. From Mites to the Stanley Cup, a hockey tradition unlike any other!
Super 8 is to the Catholic Conference as D-I is to Public schools (this year aside)
"Now it appears the CC is watered down and has decreased the gulf between the two."
It happened so fast.
Pretty ironic that a public school won the Super 8 and a catholic school won the D1 titles this season dontcha think? Just goes to show you how watered down HS hockey has gotten in Mass in just the past few years.
i love when a public school wins the super 8 it MUST be that ALL hs hockey has been watered down. and yet when the catholics win --- they should have their own tournament because it's unfair (to the publics).
