Best option for 2005 hockey in the greater Boston Area(other than EHF teams) is the Advantage Ice. Practice out of one rink, have very good skills, offer walk on skills during the week if you want the extra work and the coach is not a daddy coach. Team is pretty good, not lights out but has several good players.
from what the AI parents say you would be better off with a daddy coach than you. almost whole team already skating with other teams already.
you should go over and skate with those teams. the 2007 is a new team with good coaches and 2006 is coached by Rich Heap whose got a good background. both are new teams this year.
All set with going to skate with those teams, and now that we have received "all" of the pertinent facts, one of those teams was the 2006 Heap team, and there is no way that team is competitive at the 06 level either.
But in any event, I will remove the "05" assessment and label it as a "Pee Wee" which is even more frightening as some were 04's.
