how in the world do you know the league is trash? are you running rink to rink? it makes no difference where your kid plays 99.9 percent end in the beer league you fool, take a picture of junior in his fancy e 9 uniform and feel proud you fool
Far superior league to e9/BHL and Fed T1 from U14 and up.
this is true. NEPHL at U14 has very competitive teams and U16/U18 has some very good team and players in it as well. Good level of competition. I hate when people just arbitrarily trash leagues and teams and mostly it's hearsay. If you watch a few of the premier games and some of the top elite teams, they are competitive and a good standard of hockey.
My son plays on a u14 premier team. We pounded on Fed Tier 1 teams, easily beat e9 teams, beat 1 Fed elite team and lost to 2 others we played.
