Minnesota Elite

I don’t remember ever seeing Minnesota teams listed on hockey rankings, but have see quite a few teams listed now. Are they following in our footsteps ?

Re: Minnesota Elite

I don't know but in 06 year, the MN Fire came here and smashed all of our top EHF teams

Re: Minnesota Elite

EHF is not that good. It gets proven all the time. Wait till Quebec when our top teams are playing in the secondary division and get waxed.

EHF teams have done extremely well in the Q in the past and they play in top division for your reference.

They'll be okay once they realize the MN team wouldn't even play any E9 teams

^^^ this poor *******s life is all about bashing youth hockey leagues, pull it together buddy, look around at the rink this weekend and think to yourself "Is this really that important to me?" If the answer is yes, go outside and immediately walk into traffic.

You're like Lucy with the football, Chuck. Guy is either looking for the EXACT reaction you gave, or thinks the ridiculous E9/EHF debate is how the cool kids act.

If you'd just not take the bait - on both sides - it would actually stop.

It does not matter what team or what league your kid is playing in. If he is one of the better players at 14 they will find him. The EHF teams are diluted because of the number of teams in a small geographic area. Take the total number of EHF teams and reduce it to 3 or 4 and our MA teams would be better than just about every team in the country.

At the 05 division the #1 ranked team the Chicago Mission picked up 6 or 7 kids including a stud goalie this past off season and have not lost a game yet and have beaten every top Canadian team. They got a bunch of kids from CYA, LC and even one from FL Alliance. If the EHF would get rid of the owner protection rule of not allowing serious player movement between teams that would be a start.

It is all about the owners making as much money as they can. They do not care about having a bomb squad representing the EHF nationally.

Just my two cents...

95 percent of the kids are better off with parity among EHF teams and no super teams. This gives them good competitive games within a reasonable driving distance. The player movement restrictions are intended to maintain parity. The price/trade off is not being as competitive in the national scene. I think that's a small price to pay. Those Chicago teams log some serious mileage to find competition, Florida even worse. We don't have it that bad.

Agreed! Have your cake and eat it too. Kids get to skate as much as they want and families can maintain some normalcy in their lives ( and some money). No need to fly to Chicago to play another New England team in the consolation game. We can do that here in Marlborough .

You probably don't realize how right you are. 95% ARE better off not being on "super teams."

That's where the other 5% belong.

MN and ND/SD teams have their own section in MyHockeyRankings(Minnkota) because they do not play by birth year, they play by grade and it's two years across the board. That makes it difficult to compare like teams. Again if you made composite 05/06 EHF Elite Teams and played against MN AA teams(their highest level) they would compete just fine. MN doesn't really do club teams, they basically are just town/muni programs for the most part.
