Did we see any surprises during Platinum parity? How many platinum teams from last season are being sent to hockey hell known as Upper Gold?
At the 2010 level - Bridgewater Bandits sold a few players that they would be getting back to the elite level this year after not having an elite 2010 team last season - only to go 0-4 and the games were not even close .... some of those games were very tough to watch - going to be a long season for them
12 islanders would beat most of the elite teams. They didn’t let in a goal all weekend. And no I’m not an islanders dad. Not a fan of the Organization and many of the parents I have met from There. Coach was trying to run it up on everyone.
5-skin, You are an idiot. The islanders 2012 tier 1 team would not beat “most elite teams”. The only elite teams they might beat are the bandits or the huskies.
A ton of great competition at the BOG this past weeknd. 2010 platinum will be a great one to follow this season.
2011 usual teams did well. Shocker was the Boch Blazers team with a very strong showing. A handful of teams that had no business being there...
Strong showing for Boch? Any chance you got a look at their schedule? What a joke.
How many teams from last seasons platinum division got knocked out this past weekend? The season standings are down so it is hard to quickly tell from the schedule. Any major surprises or the same collection of teams again this year?
Saw there schedule, looked fair. Providence upset?
"their" schedule. How does a team trying to jump 2 divisions from lower gold to platinum draw 2 teams that weren't in platinum last year?
Looks like those teams who weren't in 2011 Platinum last year must have done well enough against those that were. And why PHC thinks that they have 3 teams that can (or should) compete in one division is ridiculous...
I can tell you’re not educated. So here goes.. JUMP 2 divisions? Shouldn’t have been in lower to begin with. Covid/no parity. Be better. Stop hating on children.
It appears the EHF algorithm is not working properly for the win % as it fails to compute a tie game. Am I missing something with this?
A record of 2-1-1 is being logged as .500 when in fact it is .625. This would change the rankings in most divisions.
The +/- is factored into the % which is then how they rank the teams.
I think the poster was messing with you.
We didn't play them but they were the talk this weekend for 2011's...what I saw looks like they can compete with some great players and solid bench. Just saying it wasn't expected.
Just checked schedules. Looks to me that they actually had one of the tougher schedules with exception of Monarchs. Terriers schedule looked like much more of a joke. Easy 4-0.
I’m sorry you’re losing your mind over this. deep breaths
Boch Blazers will be bottom of barrel at Plat. they belong in the upper gold where they would be 3rd or 4th best team.
Great matchups. Very even, competitive teams. Shame some people lose sleep over 10 year old hockey. Jealousy.. the sincerest form of flattery.
Maybe the Boch win against PHC was a fluke, but it's not like they tied SSK and BJE 0-0. Seems like some Dad's in the team gear are upset that an org like Boch might actually have more talent than them...uh oh.
Its the Boch name. Sold him a lemon.
so let me get this straight, isn't Platinum a level below Elite? If so, it's town hockey people, nothing more, nothing less.
You have no clue what you are talking about.
All this squirt hockey chatter is adorable. Little dusters taking their first strides in their journey to the Show.
Agreed. The kids are just starting to grow some fuzz. Big changes by U14. Enjoy the ride. At least half won’t be playing in 5 years.
08's are painful to watch. Wish my kid played B Ball.
Any team flags?
My kids team made platinum. Some thoroughbred moms walking around this weekend. Not gonna lie, I was looking to seeing all the single mom hairdressers at the gold parity but I’ll take the W.
