Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

Anon
Pretty sure the OP is just messing with everyone. Best part is all the clowns who actually engage in this argument fed right into it!
I don't think so. There are many parents out there that believe this BS about leagues.

Fed by far


your delusional. Fed has more talent but only by a slim margin. Combine both leagues and top 4 teams might be 3 FED-1 E9 but balance of the leagues are the same. If you have the options and coaching staffs and playing time being the same then yes Fed. But if your going to Fed just because of a name then you could miss out on a good team or good coaches So look around and make sure its the right fit for your kid.

This guy is right. If you have an opportunity with a great coach in the Fed, then by all means take it. But if you are taking a spot on a Fed team with a mediocre coach at the expense of a great coach in the E9, you are making a mistake. Put aside your ego and do what's best for your kid. The league may be slightly less competitive, but it's certainly good enough hockey for your kid to prepare for the next level.

Take the IHC out of the mix and yes they are very similar. IHC will beat all comers in New England. Of course some delusional Fed Tier1 black parent will tell their teams are "legit" and would beat the E9 teams. Seek out the program and coach that works for you. Players jump back and forth between leagues year to year.
^^Exactly. Find the best coach and program nearest you in either league, and you'll be fine.

Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

I agree with a previous poster that the OP is a **** stirrer.

But for those who really want the truth (I've had two boys go through to high school) it really doesn't matter at all.

Both leagues have some of the same upside and downside with coaches, talent, parents, players etc.

The key is if your player is on a team with friends, or just kids he likes and is happy and you can find a decent coach who understands that he's NOT an NHL coach and never will be, and has a good rapport with the kids...then THAT's the team for your player - period.

If he/she is an "all-star" and head and shoulders above the rest, they'll be found.

If not, then just enjoy the team, the game, and be proud that your player likes to play and has fun doing it.

That's the truth. And now you can cue the absolute moron parents on here that will most the inevitable "sorry your kid got cut" comment.....mainly because - THEIR kid probably got cut.

You're making too much sense. And as someone who has had a kid pass through this and played high school hockey, I can confirm that you are dead-on accurate.

Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

The key is to look at the parent: moron ratio. Most Fed teams are much higher in this category.

Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

LOL

Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

doesn't matter what is said on this board. My kid has some great coaches and the entire team has developed throughout the season. Right in the middle at 06 level. But I'm sure if I said the team the slander of the coaches and organization would flood in.

Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

E9 is sort of a "AAA" compared to the Fed - they slap the "E" in the name to market to parents.

Re: EHF Elite or E9 - Squirt level

Outside of the IHC, the top 3 of each league are interchangeable. Beyond that it's all the same.

You can keep saying it all you want but for some reason these parents desperately need to believe that one league is better than the other.
