At least the 06 Islander Elite team decided to start a year early in blowing up a good team.
Great post. Heard you had a dad that thinks he is the GM of the team. You need to fire him and get another one.
6 d? Are you sure? That would be crazy. better off just rotating games to have a day off or two.
6D is the norm once kids hit this age. Rotate kids in for a day off. Get back on your meds would you
6 D is normal, where do these parents get these ideas? You can't go with 4 simply incase one gets a penalty (a minute and a half shift is too long and then your pairings afterwards would be screwed too) or one gets dinged-up and odd # pairings have the kids playing both walls and that messes with right shot / left shot positioning. At higher level, faster games 4 D would get run out of the rink...do these people know anything about hockey?
Is there a more dysfunctional team than the 05 Islanders? Why anyone would want their kid playing on this team is the real question? It's going to be a long year that will not end well.
Or play for any Islander team? Gallant was removed as a coach of the 07 team cuz he was porking half the moms on the team, and something is up with the 06 as they downgraded their talent.
05 Islanders are just fine. Team actually gets along great. One knucklehead but everyone knows it and he is under a microscope.few unhappy parents after cuts but that is normal. Time heals all wounds.
Also one dad that has his head so far up the coaches ars he is tickling his tongue.
ONE? There are several dad's with their heads up the coaches ass!!!
Same knucklehead from Top Gun?
This thread is getting tired.....can we agree to move on?
Yes. Lets talk about where we are going to hang the banner. There is no way the Islanders will not win league.
So Islander people - If you don't win the whole thing, then what? Whose fault is it? Coaches?
BJE still #1 05 team and will win again next year..
best talent, best program, best coaching..
You would think it was the Islanders given the way they talk.
That's says everything about how you think. You think team first and child second. You are so correct if your goal is what is best for program. Parents will realize that in time. Coaches and parents should be doing what is best for player and that doesn't even come into your mind. Sad.
