This year was a failure for the 05 IHC!!! Cannot spin it any other way!!! They have been building and recruiting for the Q for years...
everything wrong with youth hockey has happened with this team everthing!
It was the classic team of players that were good at very young ages and they kept them even though the were not developing. Fell in love with the names of those players.
If Gallant ever went to a practice or game you would not let this happen.
Should have had your bender play for IHC 05Tier1 Black- bought themselves a trip to the Q this year. Sorry you missed it
none of those "elite" players will make a high school team until junior year. but don't tell the parents!
Losing some top players next year, I am sure they will take another step back....
you mean losing top players (when they were squirts) that never developed. so what! they will go and poison another team and suck.
Repeat after me - "Islanders DO NOT DEVELOP players at ANY age group. They COLLECT players for all-star teams." The Development happens at other locations.
RG is about winning, not developing. Memo goes out to all coaches.
not an Islander...but please tell me who really develops players? The people who complain that they don't develop players are the parents of the bottom 3-4 on every team that get turned over. Thats just normal turnover...clubs have obligations to the entire team and parents and if that means replacing 2-3 players to improve the team and allow everyone to play with equal talent.
The al mighty islanders 05E..hahaha
Had to cancel there order for there Q Jersey.
Some kid in Madagascar is wearing it.
You islander 05E parents are 0 for everything!!
Hey mike it just didn’t work out as planned. It’s ok
At least you have BU or BC to choose from.
MP thought he was building a dynasty.
This is why people who aren't coaches shouldn't get involved in recruiting. It's not your place and shame on the coaches for letting you do it. MP you scouted so many games looking for players. Shame on you. You won nothing and now you are who you are.
Still can’t get over getting cut, sad.
Eagles! Very little turnover and great success.....
Just wait until next year and see about those Eagles.
Not an eagles fan, but good call on the rangers spanking them. You really know your hockey. They are only getting stronger, while the islanders continue to fall.
I guess playing without one of your top scorers and going undefeated in the playoffs is sinking fast.
05 Islanders, Back to Back runner ups to 6th place and 1st round playoff exit..... and now losing a few top players... What's left on this team?.... hard run at the Q and came up short.... Poor MP, he gave it all he had. To bad his choice in players never worked out.
Good players have been leaving this team for years, finally caught up with them.
Good players who have left? You mean who were cut right. Any player over past few years who was cut is already on their second team since leaving the islanders. It's always everyone else's fault. Gone to VJW...what do you know..left there too.
05 Islanders should bounce back next year...
Perennial Daddy team too. Couple Daddy's kids are not improving and struggling to keep up, miraculously their ice time is increasing.
bounce back to what.... They have been the same team every year.. They are an average to below average EHF team
IMO the issue with this team is 2 fold. #1 size. Team is way to small and lose most battles because of it. #2 D needs to be upgraded.
Very few Elite players.... all former E9 / Top Gun players on this team
not that much worse... I think TG finished sixth and lost in the first round of the playoffs last year.. That was the IHC 05's this year.
Elite 9 does have "Elite" players people! get off your high horse and go sit on a stick.
because they are Elite in E9, doesn't mean they are Elite in EHF
You sound foolish. No matter how u split it they are still a top 20 team in the country. Would beat the rangers by 6 or 7.
Actual roster? What does that mean. They didn't carry alternates that played outside their practice goalie who got a few games. Let it go.
Not goin off MHR...just stating they are a top 20 team. The Q? What's your point. The 3 weeks leading up to Q IHC beat BJT 7-2,MMF 8-1 and BJT 6-2. That's a 21-5 score. My point being the 05 EHF is very competitive. Even a team as you stated that didn't make the Q can still beat those that did. Most if not all the teams can beat each other on any given weekend. So to come on here and say they are below average and not Elite within their own league is what I initially stated....Foolish.
they are an elite team... They are very good, just an average to just below average EHF Elite team... They are in for a really tough season next year. What is coming in does not equal what they are losing.
who are they losing?
There top 2 d men left for different reasons and their defense was not the strength of their team (except the goalie). They will be behind the BJE, MFR, MMF, BJT & Caps. Not to mention the Huskies added some better players for next year as well. The IHC are a grinding team but will continue to struggle to score goals. Wish them luck because it makes our league better.
What they replaced their top d would not have beat out their bottom defense if not for the openings... LOSS/LOSS
This team would struggle in the E9
Stop being sour towards the IHC. Time to move on. Obviously you were on team at some point and are still bitter causing you not to think straight. Continue to struggle to score goals? They had 170 goals and eagles had 171. Both in 37 games based on EHF website. They were 2 and 3 behind only MFF in goals in that division. Your arguments are baseless and you just sound like a sour child who didn't get their way. Move on, no one cares.
Must be Hard work to be so bitter. Move on...they have. lol
OMG you are insane and need help.
Definitely not a big team but not small either. Average size team for 05.
This coming from a dad of a small player on the team.....
going to this tryout...how many spots?
there goes another $75
