Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"


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.

Friars could be the weakest team in Black. Over and Under for wins is 5...

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Wouldn't be surprised if this lineup is not final.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

No chance they change the 10 team formats...

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.

Re: O4 Black Parity "Alternates"

Although the concept of parity is a great idea, in practice it is very flawed especially when the rules of the game will shift dramatically next year. On top of the change in checking, the gamesmanship of playing with the rosters will only serve to broaden the gap. Having the team split regionally makes a lot more sense than anything else I have seen so far. As for drawing a line in the sand based on a random number (10), that's as silly as the E9 concept.
