A league doesn't develop anyone in hockey. It is all coaching and the program. Saying the FED or the E9 develop more players is a foolish argument. The kids coach is the one who has the greatest impact on development. The programs skills and the quality of the coaching is what drives people to their program.
Poor dead horse.
Haven't there been THREE threads already on this? If we're getting the full story, I'd think the family should have legit recourse. But instead they're here bringing it up over and over again. Something doesn't smell right.
Have the kid try and play Fed black?
Then skAte as an alternate with the top team. I’m sure their has to be atleast 1 organization that will do the right thing , BJE, MMF,
Then after 2-4 weeks move up or play both whatever the rules say ....
Rules won't allow it. Plus, the real issue remains that RG has threatened at least two organizations with future repercussions if they take the kid. And to be clear, RG does not refer to Roger Goodell. Same initials. Same lack of ethics and integrity. Same abuse of power and position. But different person.
E9 or EHL doesn’t compare to Canadian AAA Hockey. Both leagues continually get beat up by the Canadian teams so you might as well give up altogether, or move. And then there’s the Czech’s, Finns, Russians, Swedes, etc... that are way ahead in developing kids than the US.
It’s all fine balance between the competition you play against (E9 and EHF have some horrible teams to play against), who you play with (only 3 teams in Boston have top to bottom talent), the coach (I’ve only seen 2-3 coaches that are true elite caliber at this age group) and the skills (most are outdated and the owner/player dev guy has lost interest).
The US has, and will always be, about the money. Pay more, you have better ops. If you want to play D1, pay $160k for prepschool first. Play 2-3 sports, pay advisors in each. Maybe you’ll get a scholarship. Parrots the whole lot of you
We are luck if 1 kid from Boston makes the show at each level and you’re all screwed because my benders have those locked up already. Lol
