Re: VJW showcase

Confused?
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!
Your buddy who reffed did a good job. Next time see if he can score for them too. I've never watched a team have a 20 minute 5 on 3 and still lose. Be proud.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

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!!!

Re: VJW showcase

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 ...

Re: VJW showcase

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 ....

Re: VJW showcase

Don't know about the rest of the team, but the VJW goalie is the real deal. Been watching him for a while.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

How's Seacoast looking? They did well, no?

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Are you speaking of the 06 "Elite" team that squeaked by what could be a Nat team this year? Skilled? Did you say Skilled? That team has been at the bottom of the E9 since squirt minor. Five seasons later and it looks like not much has changed. The players ya got aren't much different from the ones you had.

I'm talking about some of the kids that left our program and our now on other rosters. Not the ones that were cut, the ones that moved on. We played against some of those kids this past weekend, and the program would be better off it held on to more than a handful of them. Just my opinion.

Re: VJW showcase

I bet if they found a new coach, the kids would come back, that was the main reason for people leaving

They should bring back the old coach that was there before the recent coach.

Re: VJW showcase

he was bringing better kids in, til he got railroaded by the current coach

Guess you missed the memo, eh PAL? EHF South my out of touch friend.

Re: VJW showcase

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

Nobody missed any memo, poster was clearly referring to the MHR 07 top ten Islanders. Said they were the Feds best, While the PAL Islanders are now in the Fed, this putz was clearly thinking it was the IHC team.

C'mon, you think by this point (peewee major) people don't know the difference between IHC and PAL? The FedHeads will go to any lengths to justify their existence.

I love the new angle that the EHF South is inferior, as is anything outside of MA. Only a few short years, and you'll see how non-elite any of you fools are, get ready for a rough ride.

Re: VJW showcase

Please take over ... we need a coach LIKE YOU! Unless you got kicked out of other teams already ...

06 T1B islanders had a cupcake schedule.


IHC T1B played 2 E9 teams, and the BHL American champ.

06 VJW elite scheduled themselves the cupcake schedule. Their 3 wins were against Walpole, Rangers, and Parisi. Those 3 combined for 1 win. So do me a favor, put a sock in it.

Re: VJW showcase

And yet VJW didn't make the playoffs??

Agree.Yet, I would wait a moth or so, before predicting the performance of these teams in the season. Team performances are so inconsistent still.

06 (13 years old) boys are experimenting with body checking. Cherry pickers is finding their ways to avoid body contacts and try to score like in their glorious days in Squirts. Goons check boards not players. Some coaches will address these one man down'-ers, and others don't.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

No VJW teams in playoffs for 05s. I thought SM was the savior?

Re: VJW showcase

So if a lowly EHF tier 1 team doesn't win an E9 tournament it's a failure? Embarrassing for the E9.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

4 E9 teams from last season

Bottom 3

15 wins in 96 games!

Pretty sure a couple of them also beat the dreaded T1 Islanders!

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

When is the T1 Black Islanders parade?

Knowing the Islanders - 100% chance they had a least 3 kids from their elite team playing down... it’s what they do.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Failure!!!

Re: VJW showcase

Agreed. Went 4-1 and gave up 8 goals in 5 games is horrible! Cuncel da season!

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

That's what the Warriors do every year. Pit the hard teams against each other and give themselves a clear path to the semis.

Do your Fed feelings hurt? Sorry your kid doesn't play for a good team

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

Maybe, just maybe, MHR aren't all they're cracked up to be?

Re: VJW showcase

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.

MHR isn’t that accurate. Wait until the Boston Breakout. Also, Warriors have a decent team. Not sure they were at the CCM, but they are a strong team in E9.

Re: VJW showcase

“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.

Re: VJW showcase

They actually finished 4th last season. This year, new coach and some new players. Go watch them play, you might think differently.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

Re: VJW showcase

If you found them impressive, you are not a parent of an EHF elite player.

so besides this "top" player being out for injury the rest of the VJW were their worst players? If they were missing the 6 that were replaced by Fed kids then they would have done even more terribly

Irrelevant. Its a team sport. Thats what role players are for anyway, to step up when Johnny Allstar is hurt, at lacrosse, or has a wicked fortnite hangover. But we hear ya, no depth, got it, coming in loud and clear. Thanks Valley Dad.

Re: VJW showcase

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.

You seem to know a lot about the VJW team. Why would you know their stats from a summer tournament?

I was at the CCM and the win/losses are on the site. Not hard to figure out.

Re: VJW showcase

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!

When you say “you” beat you are referring to the kids and not the parents, correct? Does verbally abusing kids help you get over the fact that your wife’s boyfriend pegs you to sleep every night. Does he wear your sons jersey when he does it? Does the wife swing a cowbell while you get railed?
