I agree. the best and the worst go to playoffs. kind of stupid. I agree on phc and ssk teams playing only their own kids. they got to work together pre season. smart. my son was on a team with a bunch of kids from everywhere. it was fine but I like the bonding aspect of playing almost the full regular team roster.
How did coaches choice put a good 07 team together and their 08 team was a disaster my kid couldn’t wait for the game to end wasn’t fun beating up on those kids
you are correct but the insecure small dick dad assabet coaches cried about it instead of just sucking it up. And the truth of the matter is that they shouldn't have gotten to playoffs at all after playing the select and town teams.
When did Stamford become a suburb of Boston?
BHC 08 in a breeze, real finals may have been our 5-4 win over Northstars last night and they didnt even make the playoffs. Not a well thought out playoffs when most of the top loaded teams were in 3 brackets but 2nd tier teams make playoffs?
No accident those teams in the top 3 brackets had a lot of eyes watching, as it was exceptional youth hockey.
yeeeeeep. agree. ridiculous way of running playoffs. congrats to the BHC kids. they did deserve to win the tournament
Northstars did not have a shot with that roster
The kids on whalers don’t shine. Bhc is hand picked. Bunch of friends. They sleep in each other’s house. Everyone knows their deal. Daddy coach. 4 MFF. Couple other MFF on other lowwwwww level teams. They were outshined by a lot. Too many 09s they can play next year. Rushing everything. Nonsense all games were recorded. There was one mom there this weekend that omg can September come any quicker.
My son’s team DID move on from a top bracket. I was “bitching” about the bhc switching who they played and I was “bitching” about TWO teams from the ridiculous bracket making playoffs at all. Usually tournaments have an elite bracket and a select bracket. When you pay money for a tournament, you don’t expect that the final games will have 5-0 scores in 20+ mins.
They got run over by the #1 BHC team at the exact same time for my son’s team, but the bs with the assabet crying coaches was ridiculous in summer hockey. Incredible that they entered their kids in the town/select bracket and then demanded to play the #2 team instead of the #1 team (the real BHC team). The assabet dad coaches need to get a reality check on their kids’ abilities. They wound up playing BCH #2 team in the next round anyway and got slammed 5-0
in a 1 period game.
How does the mvp go to a kid who scored 1 goal?
Asked by the moron that knows nothing about the game... Couple of concepts to bring you up to speed, so try and pay attention:
1- 200 ft. player,
2- face offs
3- d-zone coverage; and
True elite centers don't "score a lot of goals" because they're too busy worrying about their job.
Mites are over Mom, big boy hockey here we come!
Lol, moron. The “assabet” kids had 7 top gun kids from the EHF and the 2 best valley junior warrior kids. Long Island warriors, valley forge and a goalie from ct huskies. There were only 4 from assabet. One was good and the other 3 were the weakest on that team. Have the full assabet team play the worst EHF team and see what happens. That team beat the ssk in one period 1-0 (not a definitive victory in any stretch) and the ssk are at the bottom of the EHF and assabet is at the top. E9 sucks sorry
My son is on neither team but has been in the EHF for the past year and was on one of the top E9 teams for 6 years. The full assabet team would beat the full SSK team maybe 1 out of 10 times. You E9 people are hysterical. Check MHR. I know that is just a rating system with flaws but they agree with me. Ssk was 32 and assabet was 49.
Was looking at prior year. MHR had ssk at #40 and assabet at #79.
Assabet would probably do pretty decent in platinum
Assabet kids had absolutely ZERO influence on that game
One of the TG D was horrible. Cheap shot penalty and coughed up the puck per usual.
that bhc team had tiny assabet and extra tiny top gun kids. it was by far bhc 2 team in the tourney. they were lucky to be in playoffs. had easy bracket. bhc posting 2 michigan goals against a super weak opponent is embarrassing. but hey, when you have parents craving to spend their money on a weekend money grab, why not. most of the players have a very very hard landing approaching the next couple of seasons. not sure they can handle it
Thanks for this post. You’re entirely right. The assabet parent coaches are going to get a big wake up call this year. I wish they could be in the EHF to see what it’s like to play against BJE MMF etc.
its not just the assabet players...its all the tiny kids that played from ehf too
