Is the 09 Saints coach (RJ) really heading to the Caps?
Announced on Caps page 2011 HC. Saints are a shell of what they used to be. No rink is killing them. The most ice they have for practice is at the Bubble. Then head to WW and Smithfield. That gets old fast. I'm sure more HC's will leave the Saints before tryouts as rumors are flying.
07 team is very good .
Well, lets see... Patriots (3rd place in E9) beat Caps (4th place in EHF) by score of 5-2. Saints beat Patriots 3-2. Logic tells me that the Saints are good as are the Patriots. 2007 EHF has 3 "Elite" teams. The rest are just the same as #2-#9 in the E9.
Providence Jr Bears A team could beat the Caps, not sure about the Saints. And I say they could beat the Caps because they call up a bunch of those kids to play on the Caps to begin with! So to say that state league A teams couldn’t do it is wrong. I’d put $ on the Bears... and no I don’t have a kid playing there!
We had some good conversations going but that is some crazy stuff right there. Um they have 1 kid on the Bears who plays Caps Elite that is true. Others get called up to a last place White team. Man I'm all for playing close to home, but they would get destroyed by those 2 elite 07 teams.
How old is a 2011? Are you out of your ******* mind?
Yeah, great move for that coach that left a 2011 team. Boy, he spent a lot of time with that 2011 team, and they still need work. I don’t blame him for leaving. Those kids are at least 5 yrs old now and I bet most don’t wear diapers anymore. I think that coach will make the 2011 caps real good. He will be real proud. He should be the poster boy for USA Hockey. WTF?
And the Caps promote this move?
CNN you are hysterical! That’s some funny stuff but agree with you! Most of the (401) talent has moved on to the (617), (508), and (781) because they see the writing on the wall. Unless you live in the 401and witness it for yourself it’s a hot mess!
RJ is a great guy and a great coach... I feel bad that he’s still in the 401 because he deserves better,
Yeah man not sure what your talking about with the whole CNN thing, just stating some common sense reasoning. Glad you agree though!
Gotta disagree with you on this point...RJ great guy, not so much. Has damaged 3 organizations and left many families unhappy. Last year he promised the world to all the 09 Saints parents that left their Mite B teams. Then after 1 season leaves on the 09 Saints.
Typical coach, blame the talent not the coaching. He should've recruited better babies at Hasbro like the Caps do (2011 Elite bahhh). But he couldn't, so he went the route of if you can't beat'em, join'em.
OK, Think about what you are saying. RJ left a team of 5-6 year olds because he could not develop them, and/or he could not recruit/steal any 5-6 year olds to come to his team. Now he is going to the Caps because they were able to steal some 5-6 year olds, and now RJ is going to coach them. What will RJ do next year if the Caps can’t recruit/steal some new 6-7 year olds at the end of the season....
Now let’s foreshadow to high school hockey in RI...
Gee, I can’t figure out what the problem is...
