Re: 06 Superseries - Boston Breakout

Best 06 goalie is IHC. Won several awards this summer at various development and goalie camps. Hands down.




In New Brunswick and Florida!!!

Kid won't be on the IHC team next year, incoming BJT goalie going to put him on the bench.

Nice post TD did you buy your kid training wheels yet?

So last year's 06 IHC elite goalie is now the backup? That's a big change weren't they like 7th in the country?

So winning the meltdown, playing for Team NE and getting recognized and awarded by good coaches at summer showcases isn't an accomplishment? I don't see any other 06 Fed goalies with that track record.

Re: 06 Superseries - Boston Breakout

that's b/c they are playing baseball or golf or doing something else worthwhile at 10 years old.

Lmao! You actually were serious. It's summer hockey. Who cares! Since you mentioned Team New England I heard he had a rough time at the Show. When he had a chance to show off just how good he was with other kids that are equally as good he didn't do that well.

Just because a kid decided to spend his a whole summer traveling the country playing hockey and a couple coaches gave him a pat on the back does not mean he is the best hands down. I actually think the best goalie at the 06 level is the kid at the huskies. The team in front of him is just not as good as IHC or MMF.

Re: 06 Superseries - Boston Breakout

I am sure all the 10 year olds are great and I have never seen any of them play but just for the record, kids do not decide to travel the country in the summer to play hockey tournaments the parents do.... next time you are one of those events and find yourself commenting on the future of a 9-10 year old... look to your left and ask the person if they ever played the game... then look to your right and do the same.... yup you guessed it nope and nope.

Meltdown was mediocre at best this year and he didn't see much rubber. How was Quebec City? Ottawa was a joke of a tournament as was CCM and he still couldn't pull that one off. Easy to beat up on Boston Outlaws aka GB Vipers and NE Crows. Wait until he has to face the MMF who average 9.5 goals a game on him. That's the best in EHF?

Drunk IC Dad = Flames Mom...I think that team won in Quebec City. MMF put up 9.5 on average? Right. MMF scores a lot but it's mostly due to the D in front of him.

3. Yes 9.5 avg look it up.

I must be missing something. There's 2 IHC goalies and they'll both start games this weekend - they split games. So it would appear that no one "got the start"

Where did the new BJT goalie come from? Thought BJT had a stud goalie?


Old goalie out and now backup at Islanders. New goalie arrived from BA / Brick team. One of the best goalies in the country and definitely #1 goalie in 05/06 FED.



Your insanity is amusing and is a perfect example of why I like coming on this board. Many thanks.

That is boring.... can we please have another Dbag Dad come on and tell us how good their prepubescent kid is and all the nice things people said about him in the summer leagues... so much more entertaining!! I am relying on you guys to get me through a slow Friday in the office.

I expect huge accolades from my Grinder this year.

He is in the E9 this year for those that aren't familiar with the league it is comparable to the BHL, EMHL, BHL or Valley League AA.

Skating and hands are poor but he is big and strong. Everyone at the rinks keep saying "wait till the hitting starts." That is exactly what I am going to do. The theme around the locker room is that leagues and levels don't matter, so I am on board with that too.

Seems like from Mite until about age 16 none of this matters. Around 16 I have been taught to expect that all the good kids start to suck and the big kids start pounding people. From there its an easy jog into high level hockey.

Let's drop the puck!

Take a look back at what you just wrote, as an alleged adult. You should be feeling pretty good about yourself. Your kid in the EHF is no better than a kid in the E9 or other leagues across the country. Hold yourself, admit it and have a good cry. You'll get over it.

Slow down, that post is pretty accurate and downright hilarious, because some wackos actually believe that stuff, But...What is even funnier is that you took the bait, because there is no doubt that was written by a Tier 1 Parent or a low level EHF Elite kid's dad. These people are left with poking fun at the E9 and BHL, because that is the only thing that keeps them thinking that their kid is better than he actually is.

There was a lot of movement this past year, so discreetly ask some parents who have played both leagues and ask where the differences are, if they are any depending on what level and organization, or ask the Kids who went to a league or level they believed was supposedly inferior and failed to make the team.


Now, don't go asking the parent of the kids who have played at four organizations in the past four years, because they are an inaccurate barometer and just fail to see that it is their kids who are the issue and not the programs !! (you know who you are)

I'll take the bait and respond. I have two kids (one out of high school, another playing youth hockey) who have played both EHF and E9 all at the elite level. Good players both, but not superstars. Over the years, there is one difference. The superstar, high-end talent all play in the EHF. I'm talking about the four or five best kids in every birth year. That's enough to make the top EHF teams stand out from the pack. The rest of the EHF/E9 rosters, say at least 90% are completely interchangeable. The last EHF vs E9 game I saw (BJT vs Patriots) last weekend - switch the BJT goalie who was superb (not my kid and not my team I was a neutral observer) to the Patriots and a 3-1 win becomes a 3-1 loss. That's the difference between leagues. That kid who makes the difference will usually be found in the high-end EHF teams that are stacked to make a run. Good - very good - players can be found in both leagues up and down the rest of the roster.

yea, I get that. In fact my kid has switched teams. In the normal course of progression that I believe that you are speaking of, the kids normally move up in a talent level or tier, or move laterally to a team with better coaching for the most part. Everyone understands that move and those kids and that will always be a part of hockey. As you progress you find hockey that you never even knew existed when they played at the previous levels.

I was referring to the kids moving laterally to four organizations in four years, because they did not make a top team because the evaluators or coaches do not know how to evaluate talent. So they bounce form team to team, bashing the previous team to everyone saying how bad it is, and their kids were actually good and not the problem, only to repeat the cycle at the end of the year, when they have to jump ship again.

Those parents need to leave their kid at a good organization and let them progress and understand that their progression may peak at Tier 1 or AAA, or Town B

So they bounce form team to team, bashing the previous team to everyone saying how bad it is, and their kids were actually good and not the problem, only to repeat the cycle at the end of the year, when they have to jump ship again.

Those parents need to leave their kid at a good organization and let them progress and understand that their progression may peak at Tier 1 or AAA, or Town B

Good point, there are families that move every year because every team stinks, and there are families that move for a change or progression. I would argue that you should plan to split your youth career with a couple of different organizations and coaching staffs. 6-7 years is a long time to play with the same coach. Your guy will learn more with another point of view after a few years.
