People in glass houses should not walk around nude unless they are hot!
Goalies will be deciding factor this weekend. Good Luck to all!
this thread has been suspiciously silent since the playoffs were completed..
hmmmmm I wonder who won???
Everybody knows who won - the "premier player". What is there to talk about?
You would think with such a great player that team would win big but they don't
3 to 1 in a championship game is pretty good. Face it! Islanders have no premier player other than goalie which hides a lot. Take him away and they fall to middle of the pack.
Not an Islander but in the know. Islanders upgraded with the addition of several very good players.
Agreed, but the problem with that team is that both daddy's play there kids at center. See if that changes. I know 2 kids they got should definitely each play center. It's a train wreck in the making.
the most toxic situation in youth hockey is the daddy head coach!
Terriers, IHC, Caps have had ups and downs this year. No premier players on those teams???? Difference is on those teams coaches believe in developing all the kids and not playing around a "premier"kid. Good luck Terriers, IHC, Caps.
Please don't misunderstand me. The "premiere" players is impressive. To answer your question the Eagles have the least amount of turnover which means they develop.
Lol....Eagles won 05 last year and still cut 4 kids. Develop?
Least amount of turnover? Eagles took 4 kids from the E9 last year...This year the Islanders are doing it. C'mon now....
I guess I am missing something. I don't understand the "Recruting" jab. Every EHF team and E9 team at every age levels try's to get better players for the next season. Seems like the only ones who throw out the "you should develops kids" are those who are being replaced. Kids are developing...just not your kid. That is why he is being replaced.
What don't you understand? You've replaced 7 out of 15 kids in the last 2 years. How is that developing?
Fine with your strategy. Just don't call it developing kids.
Ok I'm confused. Who is "you've"
It's a conjunction of the word "you" and "have" ...hope that helps.
Best thing the EHF could do is go to a 2 year contract system. Would make coaches due a lot more due diligence about a player and be better for development. Would be better for kids.
Ehf plays musical chairs with players with the hopes of building the "super team". Some players develop on their own some not as much, but ehf teams are always looking to bs and steal players from other teams, ehf does not develop players, never did, never will. A middle of the depth chart ehf elite team will never last.
