Spoke to several MO’s at a function tonight. Several Fed players migrating to E9.
Not affiliated with either league. Was in for Hockey East playoffs. But remember hockey has no boundaries, regardless of state, region, country, or EHF. Please grow up as you embarrass your league and the game.
Same old, same old. EHF Tier 1 Rainbow parents looking to justify juniors lack of skill and inability to make an elite team by bashing other leagues. No EHF Elite or E9 Elite parent comes on here and debates leagues - its all the Tier 1 losers.
We are all laughing at you and most likely your kid hates you.
I had 2 of my boys at the advantage try outs.there were at least 60 kidz plus goalies at almost every year.they were packed
Just wait until the NB tryouts in a couple weeks. EHF rats jumping ship for e9
My kid left the Fed for them. Was a great decision to do so. MUCH better practices and skills. Like the Fed, the e9 needs to get some of the programs ramped up, usually by booting the political daddy coaches.
Sad but true.
Could we agree that tier 1, 2,3 players and those cut from fed elite teams don't count? Does anybody have proof fed elite players, who made fed elite teams, are leaving in force to the e-9?
Any FED elite kids heading to E9 are getting cut, its that simple. Or they are Tier 1 Black kids looking to grab a first line spot in the E9.
Kinda thought we have have already discussed this no?
BA is an outlier in the E9. Should be renamed the E1 + 8BHL American League
People who debate E9 vs. FED were benders themselves who live vicariously through their kids. They are the parents you stay away from at the rink.
You really think that IHC has solid rosters top to bottom? Have you seen the 08, 06,05 teams? You sir may have the least hockey sense of anyone on this board. I'll give you the 07 team - RG has stacked that team and they are solid.
Yup. Fed is awesome. Bandits, Breakers, TG, Caps, Terriers, Huskies...all awesome programs!!!
When 6 out of 10 (that’s 60% for you Fed dads who can’t do math) of your league completely sucks it’s tough to say your good.
Kings and Flames spotty at best at some levels....so congrats to the Islanders and Eagles for being the 2 strong programs in your league!
My kid plays for an E9 elite team. Gets asked by two fed elite teams come over every year. Guess what. He loves his team and coach and enjoys playing. Has an opportunity to play for a Prep school. I think the league is doing just fine
Back 8-9 years ago when BA had only a house league and played in 6-7 tournaments per season the kids were bailing from the Fed to play BA. And they were some of the better kids who many have moved to D-1 and pro hockey. Are we back to this?
This is funny. My kid made the move to the E9 at the '05 level. He was offered 2 Elite spots in the EHF and a Tier 1 spot which was laughable. He practiced with 4 teams and we went to at least 1 game for every team. Based off of the practices and the games the E9 was the obvious choice.
The BA situation is not hard to figure out. They got a Q bid. Get a Q bid and kids will come. But there are no other miracles happening anywhere else.
Parents start positioning for the q at squirts. The big movement to the EHF is at PW minor. BA automatic bid is a huge deal. There is no widespread movement like you explain happening across all programs at various age levels.
I do not blame them for fleeing to the E9.
E9 is a great league, its a fun league. E9 is a participation trophy type league with lower and talent a lot of smiles.
I like that my son is there and the man he is becoming, he can't skate a lick or lift the puck at the 07 level but we have a blast feeding the ducks in Concord after the match.
Viva La E9 as they say!
The coach that played NHL and pulled his kid from E9 to FED must not be a very good coach....heh?
Running from EHF to E9 is like running out of the ocean into a burning building.
