parents are so delusional it is funny. right now there are 3 05's that play 04. the 05 ehf/e9 parents should get a grip. after those 3, there are about 6 ehf/e9 kids playing in the age group that have a something good going on. By that I mean size, strength, compete, skill, positioning and consistency of play. The ability to make play when needed and lead when game is on the line.
and it does not matter what league or team - there are 6 kids plus the 3 kids playing 04.
I know we are talking about 11 year olds but parents should really get a grip on reality with all this team/league nonsense.
Two kids play 04. Third one just moved back to 05
It's because we were all on the brink of stardom and our dreams were dashed by slow poke disease, short arm syndrome, and mary jane.
04 MMF and 04 RIF two of the best 05s...
What teams are the other ones from?
The site owner has 2005 ....duh
05 parents are the new 02 parents
And the 08 parents will be the 05 parents. It is a cycle. Figure it out big guy.
Meh, its cyclical. The 05's are now Pee wee age. Their dillisuonal parents think that they have made it over the hurdle and will actually continue playing high level hockey and think that now they are 11/12 it really matters.
They will come around in a few more years, when 1/3 have stopped playing, the top kids have not gotten any better and cant make teams, and the same kids that are at the bottom now while parents "that kid should not even be on the team" to everyone will end up pushing themselves to the top and excel past the others.
The funniest thing is that the 05 level is probably the thinnest age group around when it comes to talent !!
In the end, it will be the 06/07 parents next year and eventually everyone but a few will figure out they were crazy when evaluating thier own child, with the exception of the dads shopping thier kids for junior teams and then settling on watching their kid play men's league, those guys will never change !
