Depending on what the schedules look like when they drop we could see some substantial inter-league play. Seems to be a decent compliment of "elite" teams from both leagues.
Anybody want to list their grievances now? Travel? Rinks? Weather? Refs?
Or will the games just do the talking?
Since the Fed prohibits interleague play and since they have influence over the schedule you won't see much interleague play if any. They'd rather play against themselves than play against E9. Too bad
Very little inter league play which is fine so we all get to play teams from across the country. At the 04 level the local teams play each other pretty frequently it just doesn't make the dboard.
I bet you that despite the many teams from all over across every age group there will be games where the EHF will play other EHF teams within their own division.
05 division has Eagles vs valley warriors
Is the schedule posted?
The caps would pound the hell out of any team in tourney.
05E Valley Jr Warriors couldn't beat Tier 1 Black North Stars last weekend and neither could the NH Avalanche.
True that the 05 VJW Elite didn't play the Northstars, but the warriors lost 3-1 in the semi finals to the Atlantic Selects, who sneaked by the Northstars 1-0 in the finals... shocking.
They actually lost 3-0 but good story..
no skin in game - but have seen 05 north stars play on few occassions. Big, well coached team - I dont care what league they are in they would land in the upper half of fed after the top teams. I have a novel idea for all for all you 05 crazies - grow a set and go play them and see what happens - but we know that wont happen.
and BJE Tier 1 team beat Hurricanes at a Top Gun Tourney twice last Feb. Who cares.
Northstars would crush IHC. IHC talent is over-rated.
IHC Lost two of their top players. Not sure they will be the same.
Best player went to VJW
