Curious about feedback from Parents of teams in Silver. Heard a couple of complaints recently so just checked out the silver divisions schedules. In all divisions, close to half or more than half of teams are NH, CT, Springfield. I know this is new and it can change next year but I would not be happy if my kid was in that division and we drove that much. It was tolerable taking a trip or two to Chelsea Pier and NH then they add in more NH and Springfield?
Sounds liker you would prefer Town hockey. Nothing wrong with that. You usually won't have to travel as much, and that's clearly an issue for you.
Definitely depends on if you are north and south of Boston. 06 as well and I think if you are North, a couple of NH teams aren't a big deal. It's only CT/Springfield. If you are South it's more of an issue and those may be the teams that complain. Next year maybe you will see a team or two of those make it in white, although most of the newer further teams are in the lower half of silver for our division so may not have a great chance of making it up a division
I have an 04 and hate going to Springfield/ CT. Long drive and never competitive.
If you have an 04 in Silver you are full of ****. A quick look at the EHF website shows the Spfld Thunderbirds are undefeated in that division.
And most in this thread are full of ****. No games are played in Spfld. All games in Enfield where if your little benders could handle Elite they would be playing there already. Bunch of douchebags
Enfield is actually tougher to get to than Springfield.
They are literally minutes apart. It's Western Mass, Northern Ct , there's maybe what 6 rinks out there. Still a bunch of douchebags on here.
Not one person on here owns up to taking a beating , so I would think they are implying it's the other way around.
s[/quote]It seems pretty apparent that he hates driving to Springfield because they....lose. [/quote]
Either way (winning or losing) the talent varies greatly from the top teams to the bottom teams. The rides aren't that bad for 06 but if you're winning or losing by 7 a game its a parity issue.
