Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

No excuses from Islanders. Got smoked, not playing well last few weeks.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

the excuse is your team in falling apart...

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Team is full of kids that were good two years ago with not a lot of upside. Not their fault, just not getting developed.

Gallant will clean house I am sure.

Coaches're on a hot seat?

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

I just love this league. I just love this league

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

I am a parent on the team and I can tell you not what we signed up for. There needs to be a coaching change completely. My kid is not developing and high school is around the corner. They brought in too many kids and made deals for 11 year old hockey. They let a dad do recruiting and that is wrong, not to mention it clearly didn't work. Too many cliques on the team.

We need a team meeting with Gallant who hopefully will read this and call us in individually and confidentially. Richard help!



I wish my kid got cut!

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Newsflash...your kid isn't developing most likely due to having your athletic genes Bahahahahahaha

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

I call BS... Fake post.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Entire board is fake...just like the fake parents throughout youth hockey.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

11-1 isnt fake.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

call it fake...but there's a lot of truth in jest.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Why is the team struggling so badly?

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Real deep thinking there pal. Youth hockey parents unhappy with their team. Who would ever guess that. That's a new thought. Do us all a favor and go on MHR at every age level and look at all the #1 teams listed. Those #1 teams have the same idiot parents as the #50 ranked teams who complain about the same ol crap. My kids getting screwed, coaches don't know crap, so and so should be on PP and PK (insert their own kids name here), we should forecheck this way, we need more ice, so and so should have been cut etc etc. this is the same story all throughout the EHF and E9 from the top teams all the way to the bottom.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

But this was supposed to be the supper supper team that is going to Q!

Supper supper? Lunch lunch, breakfast breakfast. Learn to spell

Sorry your coach got cut.

a good player/career does not a developer make...

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

This has been years in the making. Coach is good for mites and squirts but has no ability to teach more complex team concepts. As the kids get older, this becomes more important.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

ok thanks Claude...bahahahahahaha

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Look. We beat the Eagles 5-1 back in September. Boys were tired. Mulligan on this one.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

You played?

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Tired would be a 3 or 4 goal game. Not 10 goals! 10 goals is the club quiting. Bandits have lost every game but the never quit.

I thought IHC was the best team? The super team that was going to crush everyone. There are two things getting crushed up there...bud light cans in the parking lot and the hopes and dreams of having the super team! Mulligan? I dont think so!

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Last year it was the players. This year it's the coach. Can't wait until next year... only one thing left!! Bye bye parents

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Wait till the BJE get the kid from the patriots next year. Done deal. Will be top player on that team. They will crush IHC 20-1

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Hey Reg. It's been a while. Gotta hand it to Eagles Nest guy for calling the slow start. IHC goes to the top of the list. Sorry Mike, it's the implosion list.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

No way no how the Patriots kid plays on the Eagles next year. They don't want him nor do any of the other top teams want him.

HA ha ... Nice post dad!

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

The problem is that coaches are attracted to players because this year they are playing well. You need to project players when checking comes. He will be in trouble.

Not if all you care about is the Q.

That's the problem with the EHF, too much focus on developing PW Major players and not necessarily on developing hockey players. Not all, but certainly some teams/orgs.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

not many Islanders will do well once checking comes.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

why? are they too small?

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Ya, but the Q. Its all about the Q!!!!!!

What! What do you mean we are not going?

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Typical comment from a non athletic parent who most likely highest level of hockey was checking. Islanders kids will be fine.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

No it's a typical comment from a parent of a big slower kid. I hear it constantly! If a kid is fast, has balance and strong on his skates, size don't matter.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

Wrong wrong wrong. Its the will to compete when someone is gearing up to crush you. How they respond has nothing to do with size, speed or smarts. It is their compete level and willingness to engage.

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

wishful thinking. Higher levels everyone has balance, agility, edges and is strong on their skates. Look at college rosters and the size of kids. It's a big man's game.

1 in 20 will make it to that higher level. I think we're talking about bantam and HS hockey, where not everyone has those assets.

Double mulligan for the 6-2 lost to them 3 weeks ago.....

If the team is losing and in a funk who cares. If the kids are not developing or having fun then that is a problem. My advice is give the kids a week off. Let them stew a little, charge their bateries and come back excited to play...It is a Long season so parents relax and be thankful your kids have their health. You want to feel bad go to the Childs Hospital Boston and then you have a real excuse to cry....

Re: 05 Elite Islanders vs. Eagles

After another 05 post I really wish my kids stuck with wrestling in the winter.

05 Development

Why does everyone in this age group chase the same small circle of kids that play hockey 10-12 months a year and are at every spring/summer tournament. Don't see any of these teams taking the next step - some go backwards. Find athletes and coach/develop them, not just hockey players.

So they can win without having to do squat. However it doesn't work after squirts.

Re: 05 Development

So please explain what teams do it the correct way?

Re: 05 Development

Islanders last 10 games
W T L
4 - 1 - 5

No mulligan my friend.

The problem with that team is that they didn't realize that grabbing a bunch of kids that were good 12 months ago and making deals to take kids you shouldn't have, just doesn't work. It is not about how a kid has played in the past, it is all about getting an athlete, who has a high ceiling because he is an athlete, and developing him over time. Yes, you may not have won years past, but the boys are in the middle of a period in their life where the athletes just go to the top. That will continue by the way. I have been through this before. It would have worked three years ago, not in the middle school years. They go in as little boys and come out as young men. Size, strength, and speed all things that will matter.

If you look at the Eagles and Flames you will see bigger, stronger, and more athletic players.

Just how it is....sorry.

Kind of creepy of you talking about middle school boys becoming men. Aren't you supposed to stay away from websites like this? Creepy!

Let's not forget the importance and emergence of "Smart" players. So many kids look good skating and shooting, but their lack of game awareness will cost you goals and games.

We have way to many people in the world like you unfortunately... very sad. Cost you goals and games? Get a grip. You're probably that dad I hear yelling every time little johnny gets touched...

Of course it's not wrong. But it is inappropriate to point that out about a developing kid. Seen that happen 1000 times from parents over the years...Be constructive...not destructive.
