When the 2015 NHL Draft Central Scouting Service midterm rankings came out this past week, it was no surprise that a handful of Valley Jr Warrior alums made the list.
Noah Hanifin, Casey Fitzgerald, Colin White and Cam Askew were all a part of the list of players who are projected to be selected in June’s draft which will take place on June 26–27 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.
All four players were major contributors on the VJW ’97 Elite team that captured two Massachusetts State Championship titles and advanced to the USA Hockey National Championships in 2010 and 2012

I hate to interject reality but the top 4 E9 programs aren't that great. They would be mid pack EHF teams for a majority of them. Realistically you would probably have to take the top 6 EHF teams and then maybe the top 2 E9 teams for debate sake.
I wholeheartedly agree with this. I'd also strongly consider the Vipers to this special list. They have been dominating Tier 1 and would certainly be in the top 6 EHF Elite, for most years. (Important note: I am not a Viper parent/coach - this is just simply my objective observation, as a non-biased person).
Can we please stop with the Vipers being Elite.They got crushed last weekend.
They actually did okay, with several close losses. The "Super 8" league could look like this:
-Top 5 EHF Elite
-Top 2 E9
Lmao too funny ok well enjoy your close losses and Tier 1. I'm sure you'll dominate Tier 1 yet again. Have fun
