From what is rumored, it seems like the best players in the 08 birth year from the E9 are all moving to the Fed with 2 teams benefiting, one north shore and one south shore...
Is this normal and did this occur at the 05, 06 and 07 birth years?
seriously...why? of course it is normal and it happens every year. Welcome to youth hockey.
Totally normal. Natural progression.
Nowadays its not about making next years team within your club it's about making next years team with a new club.Gravity prevails as the kids skill set advances they all start ending up in one place.
Which teams are benefiting??? The Eagles and who else?
Look at the standings.... kids (actually parents) will move to islanders and whatever team south of city is highest in rankings...the move to "Q" teams is a year or so earlier than it used to be. The talent drain from e9 is huge in late squirt early PW. I happen to think it is nuts but you can't fight the facts.
Why are the eagles benefiting?
