Re: where are the top 08s going

Top Islanders Flames, Spartans and Top gun guys are going to new academy at Austin Prep
First off, not a done deal yet for the IHC at AP.

Second, the list of names are hardly the top kids. Mostly the .500 IHC kids.

IHC, still trying to sell the dream.
Nope, it's happening and I'm sure it will end up with a very competitive team and will surprise people with some of the kids they are going to get. It's all starting to come together:

You IHC blowhards will do anything to svck on the lighthouse.

That article makes no mention of the IHC and AP making a deal. You sir, are an idiot. The entire article can be summed up in the title.

Even if IHC $$$ wins and the deal somehow does occur, why would any parent pay $26k for the school and then another $14k for the IHC academy? IMO, this AP move to the NEPSAC would mean an opportunity to raise tuitions across the board at AP and not just for the few additional hockey kids that this could bring in.

Not to mention the move to the NEPSAC just raises AP's re****tion while the deal with IHC just lessons it.

Re: where are the top 08s going

I heard that O*wen MaKail is heading to St. Sebastian's on a FULL scholarship.

Re: where are the top 08s going

For field hockey?

You are pathetic

Re: where are the top 08s going

Lots of them will be going somewhere they won’t be the following year. Lots of hurt feeling

Re: where are the top 08s going

he is already at dexter

Re: where are the top 08s going

Top or very connected 08's going to CCW, RR, SPA, BJE.... Midlings going Militia, E9 half season, money printing academies or JV team.

Very, very top and/or very, very connected 08's working at playing up an age to U15 as first team, U14 as second, or at the very least U14, plus, #1 or 2 Alt for U15. Not to mention, some of these very best 14's making a top level HS roster as a Fresher.

Already been seeing some of the creme de la creme 08's playing U14 since the summer, mostly as Alts, which in reality is a look/see for U15 next year. Heard rumblings, one of the teams mentioned above, that has gone that route with some high level alumni,scored a couple of bonafides, one from outside NE, with the added lure of possible U15 exposure.


Re: where are the top 08s going

No horse in this years entry race but from personal experience CCW'S have a great alumni success rate because of management's involvement at the individual player level. The behind the scenes efforts will be there.

Re: where are the top 08s going

CCW unfortunately have a coach who has already scared a lot away

Re: where are the top 08s going

Always a good guess your kid didnt get invited when you knock a coach or coaches. In any event, the Org has a proven track record of putting their skaters in a position to succeed.

Re: where are the top 08s going

Says the guy in tier 1

Re: where are the top 08s going

So none are going to MSC? Or are they entirely non-New Englanders now?

There will be 1-2 RI/Mass kids at Mount, always are. Just tough to get top playing time competing with kids from all over.

Re: where are the top 08s going

After reading this dumpster fire of a thread I am content knowing my "tier1" kid is ecstatic playing Jr. HS hockey. And the odds are the majority of these so called elite kids will be playing with him in HS. Too funny for words.
