It's a great showcase - top kids are there. The bottom 50-75 you could interchange with another 200 kids - same as any showcase.
Love this comment. So true.
It's interesting that players are invited mostly from IHC ba bje ssk bjt and mmf. I guess those are where top players AND interchange-able players belong hence invitations. The other E9 and some Fed teams have only interchange-ables hence no invitations.
Further discussion that the TPE rosters are not a true reflection of the best players in the area is not necessary. This isn't a Team Massachusetts or U.S. hockey evaluation camp, its more about having the connections to get invited rather than playing ability compared to peers. Clearly some kids participating are top level 06's, but many aren't - so this is like many other capitalistic ventures in youth hockey. No worries, ISL prep coaches won't be at the event handing out full-rides. If you're really interested in your son playing prep hockey, get the ball rolling by contacting the head coach directly and you will get responses and tons of literature on the school, etc. It's part of what they do, attract interest in their schools and expand the candidate pool.
is the 06/ 60 development camp similar to this tpe camp?
06 sixty? What kind of make believe tourney is that????
