Here are facts.
In the same season (14-15), my son played in the Elite 9 (16 games), BHL (24) and EHF Elite (16).
PPG for each were
EHF Elite: 1.18 ppg
Elite 9: 1.06 ppg
BHL: 3.70 ppg
Prestigious camps and combines! Too funny...
Yeah! Tons. How many '02's are committed to college programs?
Moving to the E9 from EHF isn't moving "up" in anyway, even if it's a year ahead. Some kids will be bigger, sure, but the idea that their skills will be better is laughable.
another E9 Sucks Troll. If you know anything about hockey outside of what your coach and ptema parents try and vomit all over you you will know the skills are comparable. and i would say at best 60/40 ehf.
May be a good move they have a quality program.
Bottom line is all kids thrive on the ice differently. What wasn't good for one benders kid, may be best for your superstar. There's no development plan that works for all players. If there having fun and getting better, go for it.
Spartans organization has an automatic E9 bid, but has opted out at the 2004 level the last two years. Last year they were placed in the BHL National Division after parity. This will be a major step down from an EHF Elite 05 team, IMO.
I would ask them what their intentions are for next year, and if they intend to play E9 I would attempt to verify that they've made adequate improvements to be able to compete in that division.
What 05 team is your son on?
Didn't Seacoast 04 win the BHL last year? And I know they made some upvrades next year so I would expect them to take the automatic bid next year...
Excellent information. Thank you to all.
