if you are 17 playing premier & not on the programs u18 that is not good.
So Premier is not as good as U18?
What is the pecking order from U16 and up?
NAHL is the only Tier II
EHL is above USPHL Premier.
In this order...
U16 TT1EHL or NAPHL
U18 T1EHL or NAPHL
So if your from New England the best closest option for a 16 year old is in Philly for T1EHL or the Generals in the NAPHL?
The U16 Generals are going to be very very bad this year..you sure thats the best local option?
Why will the Generals U16 be bad?
U16 has like 8 players, u18s like 12....
Because the website says that or because you know? Be careful believing a website (even theirs) and even more careful with rumors. 18’s are full, 16’s are lighter but have high end kids coming in waiting on F1 visas
