Re: Bandits

Stop beating a dead horse.

Bandits have been awful for years. Not going to change in that market.

Do you know how insecure you have to be to pick on bandits. Literally one of the worst programs in the country.
Pretty bold statement about a program that has kids playing D1 and D3

Pretty bold statement for program that has more kids who can't make their high school team than college placements.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day !

Location location location....BSB and BB struggle because of location. South Shore is watered down and add in the BJT and SSK and you get 4 EHF teams close together now add in BA and its just pure over saturation. There aren't enough elite caliber kids for one team in that region never mind 5.

Re: Bandits

I don't think it's just location. There is more to choose from but one program will always be better than the other. There are a lot of programs on the south shore - BSB, BB, SSK, BJT and BA. It makes you wonder why all these programs operate out of a similar location. Perhaps it was close proximity to more rinks? BJE on the other hand doesn't have many other programs around so perhaps that is a reason they are successful. These teams have all been around for a while now and have built a re****tion for themselves.

The program that is most out of the way it seems is BB. SSK isn't much better. If you're on the south shore you don't want to go to Bridgewater or Foxboro. The people that have the big money and means to spend on hockey are in places like Hingham, Norwell, Cohasset, Scituate, Duxbury. They're not going to Bridgewater or Foxboro.

Re: Bandits

BB have zero shot at success and its 100% due to location. Its impossible to get there and its not located in a hockey rich area. No one is driving an hour down Route 18 to get there 3 times a week even if Wayne Gretzky himself was the coach. BA is successful because of location....big money area and big hockey area. Its not rocket science. BSB are also screwed due to location. BJT at least have highway access and decent hockey area to pull from (Canton, etc).

There is not a kid who has been cut from the bandits in the past ten years !

Re: Bandits

I'm going to guess that BSB hasn't cut anyone either.
