BJB is sending a team of 2012s to Toronto for a tournament this weekend. 2012s. Saw it on Twitter.

Meanwhile, their U18, Premier and Elite teams are ****. And the 12s get nicer, newer unis.

What kind of parent ponies up that kind of scratch for a 6 year old? Can you imagine how insufferable they - and their kids - will become?

I can't tell of the Masters boys have lost their way, or are brilliant!

Re: Priorities

Yikes! I just saw a pic of the '11s. They're already in Canada.

So, wait, these kids are missing at least two days of school to play in a Spring tournament?

I realize Second Grade doesn't matter that much, but how many days will these kids miss over the 10 years they have left?

Re: Priorities

Supply and demand. Parents demand it, so they supply it. Not brilliance, just meeting the market needs. If they didn't do it, someone else will.

The 12's are stacked!!!

It appears the 08's are no longer the age to be.

Re: Priorities

Why is this on the Junior and College Hockey board?

Why is this on the Junior and College Hockey board?
Because the Masters brothers are letting their junior program go to seed while sending Diaper Dandies to Canada. U18, Premier and Elite were poorly coached, bereft of talent, and poorly run. They should be able to sign anyone they want.

It's where the money is, I get it, but we need better junior hockey options in NE more than we need good 6-year old hockey.

Plus, the parents on the Kiddie Board won't understand why it's a ridiculous premise.

Re: Priorities

Off topic but which is better hockey, Premier or U18?

Re: Priorities

U18 in T1EHL or NAPHL, Not USPHL though.

Re: Priorities

Aren't the Giants in the NAPHL? Curious why everyone rags on them if they are in a better league than Kings, Bruins, Islanders etc...

Re: Priorities

Their u18 teams have been good for last 2 years so not sure who rags on them. Sending a fair amount of players to Gens and other NAHL teams
