Have they started up there yet?
IHC and NEJF both lost their first game, SSK opens tomorrow.
SSK also lost yesterday. Not a great start. Let's hope they can bounce back. Both SSK and IHC playing their second games today. Win or go home!
Fed should create 2 teams for the Q - essentially all star teams. Let them play an independent schedule similar to the Honeybaked of the world where they play top top teams and more tournaments. It would reduce the chase for the Q teams which ruins the Fed in my opinion. Top players and those that don't mind the travel can play on designated Q teams. It would then create much more parity in the Fed at Pee Wee/Bantam levels and reduce the massive amount of movement seen at Pee Wee Minor levels. The league has become overly top heavy.
Agree. They can call the All-star team - 'Boston Mission 2.0'
If Islanders and Kings both win today, they play Thursday in an elimination game. That kind of stinks, especially since the Kings already played MFF.
But losing your first game is the key to success. Both the Kings and Islanders have a relatively easy road to the semi-final, at least compared to the teams in the winner's bracket. Not easy, but relatively easy in that they don't have to get past MFF, Florida Alliance, Honeybaked, Burnaby WC, CYA, all the top teams in the tournament.
The Islanders next game might be their toughest remaining against a Slovakia team that played Florida Alliance pretty tough. After that, if they can get by the Kings, the road gets easier.
Both SSK and IHC got tough draw. No reason why committee should have paired SSK/MFF for opening round. Ridiculous.
IHC to have to go through FL Alliance, then HMS is a tough draw. HMS is good.
Either way, while I'm not sure about Fed teams, most teams are committed to staying all 10 days and have plenty of other good exhibitions lined up - plus can squeeze in all the ice fishing, ice hoteling, tubing and pond hockey they want.
It's a pain the butt, and uber-expensive, but my kid still says it was the best experience he had in his time playing youth hockey.
My kid liked the Jingle Bell skate and $10.00 in the arcade, but to each their own.
Or he is on the wifi at his hotel....?
Pathetic that this thread even turned into a ******* match
SSK advance with a win over Colorado team, 4-2
Beat Slovakia 5-3.
Moving on. The only problem now is that they are facing each other in the next round. Bummer!
Someone said game between IHC and SSK is at 3 pm. Is that Canadian time or American time?
Its Canadian time, you have to convert it to the metric system.
Then shotgun a Labatts, crush the can on your forehead, burp and then you should be ready to drop the puck.
IHC wins in ot
Let me save you the suspense, NY Rangers win the whole thing. Best team in the tourney.
Islanders roll into Loser final at 530pm today!
It pays to lose, team that beat them went home 4 days ago
LA Kings beat Islanders in OT. Islanders coming home. LA vs Mid Fairfield tomorrow. MFF got by Honeybaked in the semi.
Wow - SSK got worked out there.
You guys are just mad because these kids bigger and more athletic than the clowns posting on here.
Game is at 3PM, http://www.tournoipee-wee.qc.ca/en/stats/schedule.html?season=8&category=21770
If you are a New England parent, player, coach or an observer and you are not just rooting for these kids to do well up there, then you need to take a long look in the mirror. You should get your kid out of sports all together because you are in it for all the wrong reasons.
