At least this may be a place for cape kids to play without coming off cape so many nights a week. Bandits is full of Cape folks that have no place to play competitively on that side of the bridge.
Plenty of competition in the Cape. And not sure I would use Bandits and competitive in the same sentence. How many games has have the won in the last few years?
Competitive hockey. plenty of rinks...what the cape is missing is a ****ty EHF Club program, where average players can go and pay so that they can play "elite" hockey. Hence the Bandits affiliate club program. Thsi will take off there.
There is a definite demand for this in the cape, plenty of cape kids driving to Bridgewater, Raynham and elsewhere.
Bandits is not full of Cape kids... I think there are 3 kids from Cape on bandits teams
Rink not happening. Site work began and excavator pulled up and old skull from old Wampanoag burial site.
His kid is playing 05 tier 1. He is an 06 and he is tier 1 ability but it looks better to have him up in 05 tier 1, since he can't make an 06 elite team anywhere else. He is a laughing stock in hockey. No one wanted him or his kid around and since the Bandits can't fill teams at these levels, it was his best option. He thinks his kid is too good to play in the Cape but they don't want him their either. He has burned a lot of bridges so all he can do now is build his kid a program
Guy is a nut, kid is a decent 06, but as far as not having a place to play, that 05 Tier 1 team is made up of half 06 kids after the 06 division imploded.
and his kid is probably the best 06 or 05 on that team... good luck with that.
But, hey ! It's EHF so its gotta be the best place for my 05 to play and the only reason our 05 teams went 0-80 last year was because we play the best teams in the best division in the world !!
Not sure if that was sarcasm but if it wasn't, no way his kid is best on that team. Not even the best 06 on the team and unfortunately for him, too small to play up. He should have stuck with his original plan to "fill out that waiver in his pocket" to get him on an 07 team like he planned on doing. The 06s are trashed already. The 05s were decent at one time but last years record was proof something needed to be fine there and adding 5-6 tier 1 skilled 06s to the 05 tier 1 is clearly not the answer so prepare to check off another division as trashed since the 05 elites were failing as well
A few people on here have mentioned how WN has destroyed the 06 level but the 06 team has been bad since the mite minor year. I get that the guy is intense but I have had conversations with the guy off the ice and he seems nice enough. My kid has never been coached by him so I know I'm not getting the full picture but there is so much hate on the guy. He can't be that bad
Ahhh humm, maybe you guys should bring it in a little bit here before the whole thread gets pulled. Just sayin'
People who don't know, have the right to know and this is he platform to share this information.
I hear its a go ! He has bought the Jr Hurricanes organization, and already been accepted into the E9/BHL according to some.
there are two 05 hurricane teams this year... Maybe his kid could make the lower AAA team
He tried to buy the Cape leagues out of Hyannis too ...even they wont let him in!!
Has everyone that bashes this guy been involved with him or do they gossip on the internet about him? I never hear anyone speak about him in public. I suppose most need to hide behind the safety of the computer
had the unpleasant experience of dealing with him personally. Shame on me for not listening to the advise given from a couple of people before the season started. Thought the same thing...It can't be that bad. Fool me once, shame on him, fool me twice, shame on me
Ask Yandel what he thinks of him
What the over under on the rink #1 actually gets built #2 if it is built when it will open . .
My guess 50/50 in being built and then if built..January 2020 ice ready to use
Did not buy Hurricanes or ice !! Ask the board at the rink !
Looked into it and hurricanes have not been purchased and definitely not their ice time for next season. Let's end it.
He's trying to buy the cape cod penguins. Penguins have 08,09 teams and he plans to start 07 teams.
Poti and Nichols parted ways .., they started the Penguins then had a falling out! Nicholas and WN are trying to team up. Their rink will not be ready so ...frantic to find plan B
Don't think LaCouture is allowed to coach....Nickulas wants nothing to do with Poti and I doubt he'd work with WN
I am just trying to keep up with the ever evolving world of "elite level" youth hockey and in the interest of keeping this factually correct and avoiding any hearsay :
So WN is trying to buy the Penguins to combine them with the Jr. Hurricanes that he has already bought so that they can form one organization under the Cape Cod Total Athletics monicker and play in the E9 for the next year until their own brand new facility is up and running.
DO I have that right ?
How could one guy have ruffled feathers so bad from the Cape to Boston and points south and still be in the game. This guys is a legend......Time to move north buddy
Yeah let's us all speculate, lie and make **** up. Stop will all the truth and verifying what we spew is the truth.
NOPE! Wn you haven't bought Hurricanes or their block of ice! Anyone who cares (not many do) can call the rink and find out! Have your friend Sarg print this out and tape it to your door!!
