Re: Benders

Just sayin'
Frustrated
Just aggravating to watch kids who dont belong at the elite level. I think the coach should should not,play them. It is painful when we play top level teams...should the coach reduce their ice time?


I find it astonishing that a parent would even have this thought cross their mind. "kids who don't belong at the elite level"... I'm 99.9% confident you're just a "dad". Just like everyone else. Why do you bother evaluating any other kid but your own? If you really want an "elite" team and you think your kid is elite simply build your own team. Put all the top kids you've so carefully evaluated with your incredible eye for talent and put together an independent schedule. Plenty of tournaments and teams that will play. There's nothing worse than a "has been" or "never was" on his soap box about a kid that isn't up to snuff. It will work itself out. Keep your cake hole shut and focus little jimmy on his own opportunities to get better. Generally people who complain are the ones looking to point fingers and not take accountability.
Just sayin...


kids who don't belong at the elite level should go back to town and stop taking ice time from kids that do belong. how will anybody get better when there are kids who cant execute, compete and think at the elite level. they can play for their town team and get a star sticker for a great job! just sayin...


Listen to you...kids who can't execute. I understand what you're "sayin'", but you really have no skill to evaluate talent level. I can tell just by your tripe rhetoric. Just sayin'

Re: Benders

How do you know I don't know how to evaluate talent? That's right, I know you! Your the chubby mother of that bender with the long hair wearing the brown and orange plaid pants 3 inches to short. I thought eating tree bark was a great weight loss strategy? Why is it not working for you hon? Just wondering...

we don't, and maybe you are best at evaluating, but we do know you are on this board instead of showing some stones and telling 'those' parents --- maybe me included, they don't belong. i'd love to see your reaction when i respond 'yes my kid sucks but i know it, what are you going to do about it'. i'll answer for you --- nothing. yes, i have done it before, it really shuts people like you down.

Re: Benders

True talent doesn't get "held back" by the performance (or non-performance) of others.

If you're using this as an excuse you haven't come to the realization your kid isn't as good as you think he is.

Don't mess with this guy. He's going to make sure all your kids get cut. All from that spot at the corner of the glass. Or maybe top of the stands. You've been warned!

Re: Benders

Hey buddy, two years from now when your kid decides he doesn't want to play anymore because dad is overbearing are you still going to come on and post?

You are clearly the parent of an 06, 05 or 04 and this is your first kid. You will learn young Luke Skywalker.

You sir...are the bender. Never mind the kids on the team. They should (and do) cut your family. Your kid will ultimately pay the price whether he's a star or not. Maybe he's great, who knows. Attitude and character will serve as a difference maker when all things finally equal out. Attitude reflects leadership, dad. Just sayin'...

Re: Benders

I don't understand why this thread has created all this emotion? I would guess it is better for the boys to be in the right situation. If they struggle, then they should be in a better place to succeed? Even if it means they get cut. I understand Frustrated and his/her position. just saying...

It is better to be in the right situation. No doubt. Look back at my posts. I do understand that frustration.But why does a parent need to stick their nose in it? It will work itself out. It's clearly a case of someone who feels inadequate and anxious about their own self worth. Just sayin'...

Re: Benders

parents suck and they ruin it for the kids. whether they are benders or all-stars, does not matter, they all suck!

especially if the kid is a bender because they are aware that everybody is talking about them behind there back when the kid does not belong on the ice...

Re: Benders

I agree that the parents ruin the experience for the kids. Bender or not, this is youth hockey and it should be fun for the kids.

Re: Benders

Saw a bunch of benders down in Springfield this past weekend. These kids are not "elite"!

Your kid included of course! Maybe they just dont have strong ankles yet?

Re: Benders

Bunch of benders got lit up by a BHL team...frustrated

Re: Benders

Just curious, how does an ehf elite team get smacked around by a tier 2 bhl team?

How'd they get a spot on the team? The fact is they are either just as good as your little Crosby or your "elite" team isn't elite enough to attract enough talent to fill the roster with kids who are as amazing as your perfect little athlete. You are just like every other loser hockey dad that will have a washed up wannabe by 15 - go ahead and blame everyone else for failure. If you want your kid to have any shot in this sport you need to let go of the victim attitude and focus on what your son can do to improve results. You won't though because you are a born loser so finish smoking your lung dart, head back into the trailer, wrap up that episode of Springer you're working on and start training little Gretzky to score you 40s from the fridge.

What do I do if the team has a couple kids that are out of place? They dont belong at the elite level? Any advice? How would you approach the coach?

Thanks Dboard!


You don't. It's youth hockey. Idiot.

Re: Benders

Youth hockey is about development of elite talent, not getting a ribbon for particiption. Its ok, you dont belong! Go play soccer with the town kids meatlick...

No it's not, it's about participation. That's why we have so many teams. Participation = profits. If it were about development you wouldn't see 70 game schedules at the Mite level. At some point you will understand that you have to go outside of your team to develop your kid. Or he won't be "elite" by age 16.

Yea, Too bad there are only about 20 "elite" kids at each age level in all of New England ! So, sit back and act accordingly !

Re: Benders

What do you do if 95% of a team is out of place and has teenagers upstairs assuring you that it will get better despite them having no experience?
