That’s why people are leaving. Program is “town “ caliber. SM needs to pick the teams. To many daddy influences over there. For Christ sakes the “team executive” dad picks the team .. His kid shouldn’t even be playing anymore.
Is this the MHR 07 top 10 and the Fed's(greatest ever!) PAL Islanders that are struggling with sub-par and inferior E9 teams? Where are the Fed faithful on this one? Were they so confident they played with a short bench? Please explain!
Sounds like excuses to me. If team is so dominant game(s) shouldn't have been so close? Long standing argument is how superior the fed is to e9. Gap closing? One of its power houses struggling with not one but 2 e9 teams. 2-1 win and 2-2 tie? Is this team not as good as past teams? RG must be blowing up some phones over this showing? Rink staying open late tonight for an adjustment practice.
I was at the game. PAL dominated them. They played the whole second period 5 on 3. The warriors mustered 3 shots on 6 min of 5 on 3. Game was close because of VJW goalie. Facts!!!
100% truth last post ... could have easily been 6 or 7-1.PAL played most if not all the 2nd 2 men down. VJW goalie stood on his head . VJW has no transition game . Defense shoot the puck up to flat footed forwards.Cant catch a pass..they have a hard time Changing lines .. all that my friend goes back to coaching ..I’ve heard threw the grapevine it’s bad over there.. Parents have complained and some left to play else where. If the checks keep cashing the Owners won’t address coaching. It’s BA and everyone else. Bold prediction For the season. BA ,seacoast , Patriots , warriors or RI and the rest ...
Looks like a 1st round exit for 07 VJW tomorrow..I predict PAL puts up 6 plus goals if the refs don’t call 18 penalties on them and put them down 5 on 3 the whole game ....
Don't know about the rest of the team, but the VJW goalie is the real deal. Been watching him for a while.
He’s good. But problem is they have 2 goalies and he probably won’t play tomorrow vs PAL. Again the coach is clueless. Play your top goalie at the end. Coach plays his kid 85% of the game so why not ride the better hot goalie??Only is common sense. !! Oh ya he doesn’t have common sense.
How's Seacoast looking? They did well, no?
As a current ECW parent. It stung having to watch teams with former Wizards players, finish with a better record, and/or advance in the tournament. Our program would be so much more competitive if we could just keep our skilled kids.
I bet if they found a new coach, the kids would come back, that was the main reason for people leaving
he was bringing better kids in, til he got railroaded by the current coach
Yes EHF South!! They won't compete with most EHF north teams. They will play Two games against north teams. Thats it. RG has absolutely nothing to do with PAL Islanders
Please take over ... we need a coach LIKE YOU! Unless you got kicked out of other teams already ...
Steve is smart ... it's all about the $$$ ... screw what everyone else thinks ... sad. But, true brothers.
06 T1B islanders had a cupcake schedule.
Weak tourney, 07 level, low caliber water downed talent
And yet VJW didn't make the playoffs??
06 T1 Black Islanders had the second best my hockey rating of the 12 06 teams in the tournament. Warriors had the best and they’re out. If the Islanders don’t wind up winning the tournament it’s a failure. Let’s see if they can even finish first.
So if a lowly EHF tier 1 team doesn't win an E9 tournament it's a failure? Embarrassing for the E9.
4 E9 teams out of 12 participants, in an event filled with BHL and T1B teams. And only one of the 4 advance into the playoffs? You all are going to have drop the Elite moniker over there.
Please don’t call this an E9 tournament. Currently 2 teams in the 06 division have an auto bid. The others are playing in parity next weekend.
The point is the T1 Black Islanders don’t need to play an underdog roll. They were the best team in the T1 black last year and would probably finish between 6 and 8 in the EHF Elite division and finish 5-7 in the E9. They are a really good team.
4 E9 teams from last season
15 wins in 96 games!
Pretty sure a couple of them also beat the dreaded T1 Islanders!
Warriors lose!!! Hahahah BW you cant play lines for 2 plus min each shift .. it’s mite hockey!!!Then you throw out kids that can’t score on the shoot out. Back to the drawing board. Teach your centers how to pass and don’t do 3 on 0’s in practice .. Go to the coaches manual theirs millions of other drills ... Looks like ZERO VJW teams in the final.
When is the T1 Black Islanders parade?
They did have 3 "different" kids playing. IHC T1W division, IHC T1W west division and a another kid from another black team. So they didn't have their "true" team that will be playing this season. No "elite" players played down. So when they get their complete team together they should be pretty good.
You seem to care an awful lot about the Warriors, dude.
Agreed. Went 4-1 and gave up 8 goals in 5 games is horrible! Cuncel da season!
PAL Islanders won the 07 and were best team in age group, well deserved. Spartans a solid runner up.
Interesting that both came from same round robin division as Spartans received the Wild Card. They had tied earlier in tournament. Good hockey.
That's what the Warriors do every year. Pit the hard teams against each other and give themselves a clear path to the semis.
Who we talking about? Do tell! Or at least give some initials so we can have fun guessing....
Seacoast 08 ran away with it!! Team is legit. Great goalie and strong on D. Could be a top 08 team in New England
You beat the Americans and VJW team by ONE goal each. Play some real teams and then we’ll talk.
No feelings hurt, I just find it amusing that you barely beat two teams that didnt break the top 60 last year in MHR’s and you’re ready to name yourself as a top team on NE. Pretty amusing.
Maybe, just maybe, MHR aren't all they're cracked up to be?
Nope, they’re pretty accurate. The warriors did the CCM and barely could score a goal. Americans are brutal, you’re on top of the E9, congrats.
“The warriors are a strong team”. What do you base this off of? The fact that they lost to Seacoast by a goal and beat up some god awful teams? How about the reality that they finished 5th in the E9 last year, added no real scoring talent and were ranked close to 70th in the country.
Once again...play some real teams and then we’ll talk.
They actually finished 4th last season. This year, new coach and some new players. Go watch them play, you might think differently.
I’m extremely sorry, your “4th place” VJW’s. Completely validates Seacoast being a top team in NE. That new team of yours really tore it up in the CCM. 3 goals scored in 3 games? Good job, good effort.
Actually, I am an EHF parent so did'nt see them in the ccm, but i did this weekend and they were very impressive. So like i said, watch them for yourself.
If you found them impressive, you are not a parent of an EHF elite player.
Valley was without its top player do to injury and only had 6 of its own players avail for tourney.. oh wait you’re an EhF dad you must have known that
Yep VJW E did play in the CCM Elite as the NH Knights Black... and it was an embarrassment. They went 0 - 3 on the weekend and had a -13 goal diff and finished 15th out of 18 teams. Buddy your Spartans team will need to do better than that to be classified as top team in NE especially when your top player left to go play in a superior league.
I was at the CCM and the win/losses are on the site. Not hard to figure out.
You are correct. It was 90% VJW E team with a few add-on's who are better than the FT equivalents and they still went winless. You made my point stronger! Eagles kid is new to VJW. Nice try numb nuts!
