O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Parity is for full time players only... so what do you do when teams use their "alternates" to get in.

MMF used 05 MMF elites as alternates bc only could get 9 skaters otherwise.
Ct Jr Rangers- used alternates from MidFairfield Rangers elite.
Breakers used Advantage Ice elite players as alternates

Friars are out on tie breaker and shouldn't be. They didn't cheat.

So now what?

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Breakers didn't even use alternates...they used players that aren't even affiliated with team, including at least one Advantage elite player. It's a joke.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

If that is true those teams should be disqualified and whoever they played should get the wins. Never happen as two of those teams are founding members....personally saw the advantage bag going in the locker room...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Friars didn't play those teams but shamrocks did and lost 4 to 3 to both those teams....the fed should step up and let the friars and shamrocks in...neither cheated but get screwed by founding teams cheating...friars in points and shamrocks in those games....fed do the right thing...will never happen cause those are founding teams......they got their tourney fee they don't care about either...rigged system will continue

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

According to the rules the monarchs get 8th place because they beat friars head to head. But let's face it the friars and the caps should end up in black. The white div would suck. The EHF should take 12 teams like last year. It's not like they didn't compete in there div and the caps div was by far the most competitive.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

They should take anyone that got 4 pts and up...and call it a day...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

They should take 4pts and up. If not, fed should do right and slot 3 and 4pt teams in White and don't make them play parity. You're only getting partial teams by late April anyway, 2 parity tournaments in April is stupid.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

It seems like there was a lot of parity in this year's tournament. There are several teams that didn't make it like the Caps, Islanders Tyngsboro 1 & 2, Thunderbirds and Shamrocks that could all be competitive with most of the teams in the Black division. Don't even get me started with the Friars situation. They have a good team that had a bad Friday night and because of it they may lose out on playing in a division where they've been in the playoffs the past 2 years? Just goes to show how having a short, 4 game tournament determine the divisions for the following season makes no sense. Then add in all the talk about teams using illegal players and it's obvious that it's a flawed system.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Friars should be in. They played in toughest grouping by far - three teams in the top 9 with 5 or more points, and the Thunderbirds had 4 points and only allowed 5 goals. Only Top Gun was bunk in that group. Fed would be best served to take 12 for Black, would be competitive. But I suspect some of the smaller quicker teams that did well this weekend won't once bantam rules come into play.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Shamrock played the winner of parity to a great 4 to 3 game and the breakers who also were top 7 and again great 4 to 3 game...and mmf illegal players breakers illegal players...fed should step up and take all teams with two wins....friars are very good team and should be there...I guess high noon will tell us what fed believes in true parity and doing the right thing or is it all about the Benjamins....time will tell

Has to be a joke...There were at least 2 other divisions tougher if not all 3.

Lol...Group was an absolute joke that's why they had 3 in the top 9.

Thunderbirds scored a total of 10 goals in 4 games and 7 vs Top Gun who's team looked like they just came out of learn to skate.

This was truly an anemic group which will definately produce Black cellar dwellers...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Caps would fall behind the Thunderbirds and Shamrocks of the 4 pt teams, wouldn't they?

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Basically in past two wins got you in and it should be the same do a 13 team league 39 games so every team plays each other 3 times...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

No it goes most wins first...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

No, Thunderbirds had 3 points and Caps won Tiebreaker percentage over Shamrocks and came in 10th..

8.Monarchs
9,Friars
10.Caps
11.Thunderbirds

And anybody that was at parity knows these are all Black teams end of story.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Actually, Thunderbirds had 4 pts. 1-1-2. But someone notes that most wins is the first tiebreaker. Agree with the assessment though.

I watched them play they are 100% a Black team.

Looking again here's the actual 8-12 slots

8. Monarchs
9. Friars
10. Caps
11. Shamrocks
12. Thunderbirds

Again, These are all case closed Black teams. White would be a super top heavy league if the remaining 4 end up there.

Not good for the other 6 White teams

Agree 100% with this post. I watched a lot of the other games as well.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

i watched majority of games this weekend. yes, these are the correct 8-12 however 10-12 would be weak black opponents. Only teams above .500 should make it in.

if you include 10-12 then include the new islanders tyngsboro 2 team- only loses were by one goal each to the #2 and #3 teams from the weekend

8. Monarchs
9. Friars
10. Caps
11. Shamrocks

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Everyone is forgetting, the SSK and North Stars had byes and didn't play in the tournament. No way the EHF takes 14 teams when they have already stated they are taking only 10. They will take 12 at most.

If they take only 10, then the Monarchs are in and the Friars are out. Everyone else are playing in the White parity tournament.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

there is absolutely no way the eagles are carrying 19 full time rostered kids at 3,000 per player. If my kid were on the 4th line I would snitch on coach. because those kids didn't touch the ice over all the black helmet kids

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

are the names on the game sheets or just the numbers. I saw the Eagles play and 3 or 4 of those kids would make eagles elites. There is no way they would put kid on AAA if not playin full time on another team. Go on live barn. The had a different amount of kids each game this weekend.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

League investigating now won't release the division

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

04 will try again next weekend in Springfield

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

About **** time. But we all know they wont do anything to one of the founding members.

I know scorekeepers getting paid and most could give 2 $hits about the the entire play schedule. The only games coaches are going to watch are the teams they are going to play in parity or who happens to be there before and after their games because even they don't care as much as some Parents do

Both new Islander teams and the new Capitals team are MUCH better than the Shamrocks and Thunderbirds. Sorry. They won games because their groups were weak...if they played in the Woonsocket grouping they would have had one win.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Agreed Shamrocks are not better than Caps and Islanders Tyngsboro 2. They are probably even with Islanders Tyngsboro 1 (Dual State).

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

We played shamrocks and they were solid...they only lost by one goal to flames and breakers...so your argument holds no water...and if they are even with islanders 1 west...caps lost to them so even stop it

Caps crushed Woonsocket #1 overall seed 7-2 so you can argue every which way.

Bottom line is FED would be better served with 12 teams...

Honestly aside from a couple of teams at the top of the Black most of the teams are pretty even. At the end of the day these kids are 12. Some games they play like the Bruins and other days they play like an over 40 beer league team...any team is capable of beating the other.

I agree....

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

I heard islanders Tyngsboro 2 beat Shamrocks in a scrimmage 5-1?

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

What does that have to with anything....both teams played well against teams this past weekend...a lone scrimmage means nothing...who knows who played...tyngsboro 2 tied Manchester 4 to 4 and Manchester didn't win a game this weekend does that mean tyngsboro 2 sucks then....

These teams are all even and on any given day could beat eachother

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

It could mean that the division was not as strong as other divisions...Shamrocks play against CT Rangers, Islanders and Tyngsboro 2 and Huskies or Manchester Flames, ...or Woonsocket, Eagles, Tyngsboro 1, Caps, Terriers...probably win one game at best.
There two wins...Bulldogs and Bandits will probably be in the silver.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Keep drinking

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Bandits silver? Saw most of the 3rd period vs MMF thought they looked big and fast figured they would compete. But I think silver is a stretch unless you go by reputation

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Most of the teams are even, there are probably 13 teams that can compete with each other every week, 2 that don't belong (Bulldogs, and Top Gun) and another 5 that are 1-2 players away from being able to compete with the top 13 from this past weekend.

I'd like to know, why some orgs kept two teams that look equal but didn't make one super team for black and another team for white, so the kids get the development level they need for the upcoming year. Youth hockey at its finest $$$

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Friars should definitely be in Black. Would like to see 13 and every team plays each other 3 times during the season. Either way it's split, I feel that there will be a lot of parity in this division next season. Can see the Eagles maybe struggling a little bit but all of these other teams will have even squads.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

So if they lost 4 to 3 to both mmf and breakers then they should not be in either....get a life...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

If nothing else, Breakers should be disqualified so both Friars and Monarchs make it.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

If they are then shamrocks should be in as that gives them three wins...and it was a 4 to 3 game...so those illegal three players don't show breakers lose

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Anon
If that is true those teams should be disqualified and whoever they played should get the wins. Never happen as two of those teams are founding members....personally saw the advantage bag going in the locker room...


I am not saying anyone cheated or did not, but since tryouts were 2-3 weeks ago, a lot of players still have their bags, gloves, helmets from their previous club. Haven't had fittings etc...for new club gear. Just because the bag or the helmet is not the same does not automatically mean someone is cheating.

you make too much sense...dont bring that to the Dboard...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

This parity is an unmitigated disaster for the EHF. The timing doesn't allow enough time for teams to outfit their players with gear, and suspicion of foul play (real or perceived) casts a shadow over what could be a fun event. The BHL is gaining ground by doing nothing.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

just curious coach, whats the right thing? It would be a major snowball effect, can not have 3 teams forfeit all 4 games without making the entire age group redo parity.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Not a coach and not involved my team in black...the right thing is if a team is caught cheating the rule is a forfeit,,,thems the rules....if u can't do the time dont do the crime

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Hey idiot, did you ever think that maybe Eagles didnt have same # of players each day because of 1. Baseball 2. Lacrosse 3. Illness. Coach is carrying more players next season. Get your facts straight before you come whining on the dboard. Clearly, you were on one of teams Eagles beat this weekend. EHF already checked this out and the roster and players all legit. Move on!

You're an idiot. Not one Saints kid played in parity. The 04 Saints are terrible and only won games because they had the best kids from Warwick. Caps team is all Warwick and SWS kids. This team will do very well in White, which is the same as Town A. They rolled the dice and lost.

White is far ahead of town A.... So the 04 team destroyed SNEHC this past season with a GD of 170 and won league final 11-1..

And now they don't qualify for Black, so which is it Tier 1 teams are very good or SNEHC is the worst league on the planet?

Oh and Friars couldn't qualify either..

From what I saw of the 20 teams at Black Parity, only Top Gun would be a poor SNEHC team. The majority of SNEHC was barely equivalent to "A"(town) level hockey, and even the teams that did not qualify for Black would have their way with 3/4 of that league. So the person blindly saying White is the equivalent of Town "A" is way off of reality. Do you really think SRI,Wave2, Vineyard, Crusaders, ect are in the same realm as Friars, Islanders, Breakers, Cyclones, MMF ect? Come on now.

All leagues at all levels have top and bottom teams. SSC top A teams and Valley would do quite well in White. Your probably one of the parents who was talking about how your Caps team could win at the Elite level. Now reality slapped you and you will try to justify that White is so much better then Town A. Same parents were bashing White a week before saying it'd be a waste. Now White is apparently awesome. You over estimated the teams level which is fine, but don't preach the White is better then A. Your a 3rd level team man. You have 300 kids playing at a higher level then your White superstar. Your just paying more $ for fancy warm up suits and bags. Good luck in your next parity. Remember there's always Silver!

You mean it's just a bunch of moron dad's in suburban Boston who can't come to grips that their kids can't play hockey very well? oh sorry carry on please

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

EHF Elite doesn't have parity because the kids are the best at their age group. The rest of you are just color coordinating for sloppy seconds. Give it a rest and go back to Town A.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

the black division was a bunch of cheats. there are 3 teams from one bracket in the black and all 3 teams suck. add the north shore shamrocks and half the black div sucks. EHF screwed this up big time. and my kid is on onew of the teams that went 4-0. it should be re-done. what a joke.

Agree with this. This looks AWFUL for the EHF. What basically happened is the integrity of 3 divisions has just been ruined. The Breakers and CT Rangers are now going into SILVER which, let's face it, they will utterly destroy that Division. The 2 teams that should be in SILVER will be in WHITE and most likely be out of place. The 2-3 teams that benefited from the cheaters will also be bottom of the barrel in BLACK. Shamrocks beat an EMHL team (Bulldogs) the Bandits were 14-19 in WHITE, and the other Win was a Forfeit. The Friars beat TOP GUN, and tied the TBIRDS who had 10 goals for and 7 of the 10 against TOP GUN. Something needs to be done, when you are affecting 3 Divisions.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Parents of those teams must be ******* But will probably continue to give Tmac and the breakers their money

Am I missing something? Here are the teams in Black, including the CT Rangers. I thought the Breakers were the only team caught cheating?

2017-18 (2004) Black Division
1 Northstars Hockey Club
2 South Shore Kings
3 Woonsocket Northstars
4 Minuteman Flames
5 Greater Boston Vipers
6 Islanders Hockey Club
7 CT Rangers
8 Northshore Shamrocks
9 Boston jr Eagles
10 New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs

Or did they finally catch up with the CT Rangers and forfeited their games too?

Yes. The weakest division by far in parity now has 3 teams in black. Friars replace CT Rangers...

Black division is softer than it's been in a while. Really embarrassing for the EHF. There are at least 3 or 4 teams that were in tougher parity groupings that are in the white that would have done much better than those 3 teams that got in.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

This EHF Parity is soooooo much better then the E9. I am excited to listen to you dumb people toil over spring parity and how bad it is going to screw up your summer and 8 months of hockey to follow.

On website,
Breakers forfeit all 4 games, Shamrocks in, instead of Breakers


so they get the bulldogs and the bandits and a forfeit and their in the black division before the Friars?


What's the difference? Friars only won 1 game, surely we can't count TG as a legit win they are town hockey B-level.

Friars had a joke of a pool and couldn't get the job done case closed.

Caps had a much more difficult road and didn't get the job done either case closed part 2.


Sad thing is that the Caps cheated as well and could not get the job done!!!How about those Saints players...Caps?



You're an idiot. Not one Saints kid played in parity. The 04 Saints are terrible and only won games because they had the best kids from Warwick. Caps team is all Warwick and SWS kids. This team will do very well in White, which is the same as Town A. They rolled the dice and lost.


From what I saw of the 20 teams at Black Parity, only Top Gun would be a poor SNEHC team. The majority of SNEHC was barely equivalent to "A"(town) level hockey, and even the teams that did not qualify for Black would have their way with 3/4 of that league. So the person blindly saying White is the equivalent of Town "A" is way off of reality. Do you really think SRI,Wave2, Vineyard, Crusaders, ect are in the same realm as Friars, Islanders, Breakers, Cyclones, MMF ect? Come on now.


All leagues at all levels have top and bottom teams. SSC top A teams and Valley would do quite well in White. Your probably one of the parents who was talking about how your Caps team could win at the Elite level. Now reality slapped you and you will try to justify that White is so much better then Town A. Same parents were bashing White a week before saying it'd be a waste. Now White is apparently awesome. You over estimated the teams level which is fine, but don't preach the White is better then A. Your a 3rd level team man. You have 300 kids playing at a higher level then your White superstar. Your just paying more $ for fancy warm up suits and bags. Good luck in your next parity. Remember there's always Silver!


Thank god there was always HL and 4 years of JV back a bunch of years ago.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

True but if a player is on an elite 9 team full time tough to be on the tier 1 ehf full time as well....

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Minuteman Flames only used their 12 full time skaters and 1 goalie for the entire parity tournament. Get your facts straight before you slander 12 year kids. We were the only team to go 4-0 and that was with a legitimate roster

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

...Kids were saying a kid from CT Rangers played in the Q, not sure if it was for MFF (doubtful) or one of the other teams , even if he did play at the Q it could have been a lower level team... I'm sure someone knows...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

CT Rangers tier 1 team also went to the Q...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

EHF should do the right thing for the kids and make BLACK 12 teams WHITE 10 teams and SILVER 8 teams. They are not losing any money this way (30) teams. Anyone with knowledge of hockey should be able to ascess that there were about 14 teams at parity that could easily be in BLACK. Friars, thunderbirds, Prov Caps, islanders tyngs, all are black teams.
Step up EHF and do the right thing

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

They only made 10 teams at other div in EHF- They would complain. But 04 was legit with how close some team were. They should put 12 in but they wont

They won't do anything about it because the cheating clubs are founding members! Plus Tier 1 is a cash grab, if it were about the kids they would play parity in Sept over three weeks, everyone plays each other and then play 28-30 game schedule. It is the the only thing that the BHL does right!
They way they have it now, on top of charging 30 teams league fees for 3 divisions they get paid for 2 Parity round Tournaments! Keep it real Fed! Every dynasty fails because of arrogance

How about a more realistic Black 8 teams White 14 teams and Silver 8 teams because that is a truer demarcation of talent, with the majority of kids being average and in the middle of the pack, a few kids above average and a few kids below average.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Black 8 teams
White 8 teams
Silver 14 teams

Black division plays each team in the Black division 5 times = 35 games
Black division plays each white division team once = 8 games
Total games 43

White division plays each team in the white division 5 times = 35 games
White Division plays each team in the Black division 1 time = 8 games
Total Games 43

Silver plays each team in the silver division 3 times
Total games 39.

South Shore Kings
Northstars
Islanders Hockey Club
Minuteman Flames
Woonsocket North Stars
Boston Jr. Eagles
Providence Jr. Friars
Greater Boston Vipers
North Shore Shamrocks
New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs

Kings win the division...Islanders win the playoffs.
Top 8 teams compete well. Last 2 teams don't win a combined total of 12 games.

May the fun begin.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Guys, let's not forget that the E9/BHL parity at 2004 was bungled last year as well, and it made for a weak E9. Things happen. I just wish they would be more aggressive moving teams mid-season between Black/White, White/Silver, or E9/BHL the way BHL moves teams from American to National.

Did the Islanders pick up anyone?

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

I saw the Islanders at parity and they had a couple of kids with different gear out there so I'm assuming they picked up at least a few. Couldn't tell where they were coming from though.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Parity this time of year for next year is awful!...Can we agree that the Valley League handles parity the best? However with the early movement of teams schedule can't be set at beginning of year...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

IHC picked up a couple of E9 skaters and a goalie. They looked real good at parity right where they left off from last season. 1 point last season and IHC would have made a deep playoff run last season.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

With the 04s why aren't we doing this in the fall when they can check and the kids that are playing as "alternates" would have conflicts with their regular team. I know, it's just about selling ice.
