How bout them local boys.. going to beat team USA and Minnesota?
how about the other "alternative" 07 show going on there?
What the hell happened with the Blue Chip team (Team New England) there??? 0-8??? Not good.
Bluechip ship has been sinking all spring. The sinking continues at the show.
Karma is a ****** There's a few parents on this team that are the ones bashing other organizations all the time on this board. Notice how there's not much being said on this thread? Cause it's their kids! Lol
The reason for having 2 “show” tournaments is the owners couldn’t agree on legal and financial obligations and they decided to branch off and have 2 and draw in more revenue. It back fired in the sense the better Teams ( Canadian ) ended up all going to the same tournament. Blue chips is playing in the better of the 2 tournaments in regards to talent wise . That’s more the AAA elite tourney for better words and the other Show is more of the AA teams with the exception of DB. Dream Big would have faced better talent in the (Canadian) Show tournament as you can see all their games are one sided matches and have yet to see a decent opponent .At the end of the day their both ran exactly the same and the kids are receiving the same experience and that’s what’s most important .. unfortunately for the blue chips their just overwhelming out matched playing against the stronger competition.. I’ve sat and watched a hand full of games and the kids are all playing hard win or lose.....
I’d have to agree. I’ve sat and watched a few of the blue chip games on livebarn and their massively out played .. I’m not sure how accurate the scoring and shots and leader boards are but all the blue chip games are 40 plus shots on net to 15. That’s not gonna get it done !!!! And in the Dream Big tourney their goalie hasn’t seen more than 7 shots a game .I haven’t had the opportunity to watch any of the Dream big “SHOW” tourney but from what I’m hearing the opposing opponents have been mediocre at best.
Actually You got me there. It is summer and I’m guilty of watching 11 year old hockey. Reason being I like to watch and see how some of the tourneys are played and organized so I can get my elite 08 sons team to some of them . Information is very important if you want to play and play against the better competition and this is a perfect example. If your a team participating you want to be in the tournament the Blue chips are playing in not Dream BIg.. I want to play the stud teams not the dud teams .But then again money is no object for some hockey parents it’s just to get a medal and say we won the show... So me watching or you spending 5000 for AA hockey is more pathetic?!?! So your either playing on the blue chips and getting your ass handed to you or Dream Big playing a AA tourney ...
I'm pretty sure DB didn't intend to go to a tournament just to blow the doors off of teams. Not with that roster. From what I hear they did pretty good in Montreal against all the Canadien teams. I dont know about you but I know I pick parents too and I'd rather have a great group of parents and have a great experience than to have to deal with a couple of the Blue Chip parents. Especially the one who gets all red in the face when his kid is irrelevant in games. Yet thinks his kid is going pro tomorrow.
Without the roster, are we talking about SM? Who is DB?
