Re: EHF, E9, or town

You are right! My best friend coaches a D-1 college team. He tells me that if a player didn't play in the fed when he was 12 years old, he won't even look at him.
LMAO that's funny...except these parents believe that's true.

Re: EHF, E9, or town

After having gone through this for many years to have a son to go to play Juniors and now in College the best advice I have for you is to enjoy the ride and let the kids have fun. I don't mean trophy for everyone fun but don't be that parent to jump team to team thinking the scouts are going to be here or there. I don't care what program the kid is in. What makes a player is their effort and coaching. No matter how many bags you have in your basement 90% of these kids wont play past high school. And at some point genetics takes over. If you are 5 foot 10 and your wife is 5 foot 3 you might want to teach him how to play golf because for every Johnny Gaudreau there is there is a 250 Adam McQuaids. Take a look at any D1 roster. My son did play in the EHF when it was 8-10 teams and they were good. The fact is 1 in the league ended up being drafted.

I wish the admin would get rid of posts like this. Any post putting the EHF in the same sentence with the BHL or E9 is extremely insulting.

Too many posts about the leagues all being the same, they are clearly worlds apart. Any Daddy with 1/2 a brain can figure out the following equation:

IHC, SSK, MMF, BJE, >>>> AI, EC Wiz, Boch, GB Bruins

This is true at every level.

I figured we'd here more from the 'equality' crowd following tryout cuts. Once the dust settled and the mileage receipts were being submitted from driving from Fed rink to Fed rink.

But alas, we live in an 'everyone gets a trophy' society. So God forbid one league is mentioned as better than the rest.

Did I say God? Do I need to apologize?


This guy is going to be that angry Dad who won't talk to his kid on the way home from his JV game in High School because he's thinking about the 10's of thousands of dollars he spent on Jr Bruins in squirts....good for you bud
