i second this one. Spot on


Agree. You could always argue the bottom teams in fed and e-9 are in a lower category. If you look at top summer and spring teams and higher end tournaments rosters are probably 70% fed elite and 30% e-9.

We get a lot of questions here on the D-Board From people old and new about what is the league hierarchy here in New England across the youth hockey landscape. Here is the most accurate list I know from years of watching youth hockey, talking to scouts, traveling internationally, hanging out with prep and college coaches. Basically being a solid hockey guy:

1. EHF Elite
2. EHF Black
3. EHF White
4. (Tie) E9 and Valley League
5. EHF Silver
6. BHL national and the other one
7. EMHL


5 and 7 are pretty much the same, EHF trying to cash in on more teams


1 change. Becaus they are stacked, I would put EHF elite 08 as the best league of all time.

Re: Rank the Leagues

HPHL
Tier1elite league
AYHL
Fed Elite
E9

The rest do not matter

Re: Rank the Leagues

08 EHF elite
NHL
KHL
AHL
ECHL
EHF elite
CANADIAN JR
D1
Ushl
D3
E9
NAHL
NCDC


Re: Rank the Leagues

Will the old timer who hates the 08 elite please go away, ruins every thread. This was kinda funny though...

Still not quite right in a couple respects

1. EHF Elite top 7 teams
2. EHF Black top 1-2 teams
3. E9 Top 3 Teams
4. EHF Elite bottom 3 teams
5. EHF Black bottom 8 teams
6. E9 Bottom 6 Teams
7. EHF White (nailed it with this. First person I've seen put this ahead of BHL American correctly- good job)
8. BHL American
7. EHF Silver
8. NEPHL Premier
9. EMHL
10. BHL National
11. NEPHL Elite

Valley League is out and people are lunatics because it's mixed age. You put any of the above leagues in a place where the best 15 kids from TWO birth years are put on a team against Valley League and it's game over. Go sell crazy somewhere else.

Top few teams EHF, then top E9 team, then the rest of it doesn't matter. Jesus people get a hobby it's all recreational youth sports.
