Doubt BA even cracks the top 10 this season. They just don’t have the fire power as the other teams out there.
I highly doubt BA could beat my son's Eagles team again. It was a fluke win and would never happen again.
That wasn’t posted by an Eagle parent. Sh.. Stirrer
Why is it important that they crack the top 10?
Apparently, its important to you.
No dog in this fight, but MHR is used by USA Hockey and it's districts for seeding Nationals.
It's not some parent website that's made up along the way. It's definitely used for more than schlong measuring among parents and leagues.
Now back to your scheduled Lovell bashing and or blue kool aid drinking..
Pee Wees don't have nationals so justifying the importance of rankings for 06's by this criteria is irrelevant.
Which leaves your second statement which is dead nuts accurate.
You guys are really pathetic and have zero understanding how MHR scores are entered. You do realize that the opposing team can enter the game scores for MHR too, right? Always assuming that it's BA entering the scores...sad...
Team A is playing against Boston Baked Beans in a tournament. No one from Team A knows who the hell the Boston Baked Beans are so when they show up for the game, they ask the Boston Baked Beans coach who they are. Baked Beans coach responds "Oh, we're just the Boston Advantage XX Team". Team A plays the game and enters the score in MHR as Boston Advantage XX.
BA 05E team was in Buffalo last weekend as Boston Baked Beans. They went 1-3 in their games. Highly doubt they put the scores in MHR because their rating dropped by entering those loses in MHR. Final answer, the opposing teams put the scores in MHR.
Could be be the same with other BA age groups even if BA won. Opposing teams can put in the scores. Even though the opposing team may have lost to Boston Baked Beans (BA), the opposing team rating can still go up.
So, is it shady that they just don't go into the tournament as their BA team? - YES. But don't assume that they are always the ones entering the scores in MHR.
Get off your high horses and stop thinking we control everything and that the entire youth hockey world revolves around us in New England. The fact of the matter is that the rest of the country laughs at us and how youth hockey is organized here...
WHY DO THEY ENTER AS BBB IF THEY ARE THE BA TEAM? Can anyone answer honestly?
Already been over this.... BBB is a tournament team . It just so happens that there were no changes made to the roster this year . This year BBB is the BA team- no changes. Other years it was an all star team if you will, with a slightly different roster .
Explain to me why anyone actually cares about this?
