It\\\\\\\'s ridiculous. I\\\\\\\'ve seen Islanders,eagles,chef\\\\\\\'s, Top gun, ect. If you can\\\\\\\'t put an elite team together, why bother having one.
My kid plays on one of their teams, and no they do not bring in strangers for games. They have alternates that can\\\'t come to all the games, but even full time players wear different color helmets because the team isn\\\'t very strict about wearing black gear.
ok, wizards coach
Why would you assume it's the coach saying that? Could most certainly be a parent.

I thought it was normal and ok for teams to have alternates? I don't agree with it, I think a good team just shows up with their own team, but I thought it was 'ok' as far as the rules go.

Re: East coast wizards

I said that because anyone that knows this organization, knows they bring in kids just to win. to say the team wears different helmets...etc...is just bs. you should have stopped with "a good team shows up with it's own team" that, I agree with.

yes, a good team just shows up with their own team. Period. But the East Coast Wizards (whoever the hell they are) is not the only org that brings in outsiders to their team. Not sure why they are being called out, then it turns into a whaling session on the E9 when plenty of EHF teams are guilty of bringing in alternatives at all levels.

Re: East coast wizards

Agree! EHF is just as bad if not worse at tampering and brining players in. Don’t let these clowns on this board fool you. Welcome to MA hockey.

I am a parent and yes I know this organization. Our regular full-time kids have black, red and white helmets. It's a fact and not BS. Go watch a few practices or games on livebarn and you'll see the same kids every week. Every single kid that's skated in a game has been with us since week 1. Our 2 alternates don't show up for every game but stop with this "bring in kids just to win" BS.

The wizards have boys teams ???

Re: East coast wizards

What is going on with the East Coast wizards teams. It seems like they bring new kids to their games at every age group. I have never seen so many different colors, helmets and gloves on one team before in my life. Are they that desperate for a win?
Geez, a little nervous about playing the Wizards this weekend?

Re: East coast wizards

Wizzards are a scam. Carry about 11-12 kids per year and bring in 4-5 alts consistantly. All Dad coaches. Horrible coaching and all about their own kids development. E9 is a complete farce anyway, Same 3 teams at the top every year, all the rest suck. It's a fake league.

Not really. The E9 teams can be beaten by any Top tier 1 team. It's a money grab and an ego boost to the fools that coach that league. The same 3 average teams battle it out every season and celebrate their wins over the rest of the loser league. But, the Wizards are the worst when it comes to coaching and bringing in outsiders. You never know who will show up, but they'll take anyone just to win a game. It's pathetic to watch.

That seems too general of a statement. A ton of birth years have teams in E9 that can hang in EHF elite. Sometimes they have teams that can hang at the top. Agreed that the bottom teams are terrible but that is happening in EHF too. The bandits/breakers can be beaten by tier 1 teams and has this year. All these leagues have junk at the bottom. They really should make a super league that the teams parity into. I'm sure the stud teams in EHF don't enjoy playing the bandits or breakers. Just like at certain ages top E9 teams hate playing the knights or wizards.

Agreed, it's general. I've had kids in both EHF and E9, so speaking from my experience. There is junk in both lower level teams in each league. But, the EHF doesn't bring in alts to play games just to win. And the coaches actually know the game. The Wizards will pull from anywhere just to try and get a W. In what is, a very average level of play. The best kids on that team, aren't even on that team. Must suck to be on that team, and never play because the coaches are drooling over the "special guests."

Yep, IHC '14 team beat BSB '14 team 13 to 0 last weekend. To say teams in each league are well matched is a joke and it's sad that MA doesn't just use MHR to have teams play each other regardless of what league they're in. Those '14 BSB/bandits teams have won basically no games this year, that can't feel good for them.

It's also not all about games at this age, but still would be nice to have more evenly matched games so the same teams aren't winning and losing.

That’s awesome. Obviously you kid is a lower level elite player and you can’t take it that many of the e9 top players are far better than your kid and that makes you angry. Reality check-the league doesn’t make the player and your kid will likely top off in high school and if he’s lucky may make a college club team. Your kid can’t escape his genes. Enjoy the ride.

First of all, what you just described is every league in MA. What team doesn't have all daddy coaches? Which daddy coach doesn't primarily care about his own kid's development? What league or division isn't usually dominated by the same 3 teams every year?

The E9 is what it is. Somewhere around the bottom of Fed elite and top of Tier 1. My kid moved from E9 to a top T1 team and it's been meh. Nice to not get rolled by the Railers anymore but if you think the E9 is a farce, you haven't seen the bottom of platinum.

I'm guessing the larger point here is daddy coaches that don't know how to coach. And, don't understand that by coaching the whole team, your kid develops in the best way. Don't know who the wizards are, but my kids have been in these bad coached situations before. And, we quickly moved on.

We've had different experiences.

Re: East coast wizards

2012 wizard coach played at BU and AHL. I would consider that fairly high level.

Re: East coast wizards

My kid has been in both EHF and E9 (yes, my kid got cut). EHF, for the most part, seems to be the most strict as far as bringing in outsiders. Each week you show up, you know who you’re playing. E9 is hilarious, especially the bottom half teams. When you add in those “independent” teams, you can forget about it. Any kid in New England that’s available on that given day could show up and play. Are there outlier’s to this statement? Absolutely. This is just my observation.

You are 1000% correct with your assessment.

Re: East coast wizards

Please both leagues have alternates showing up regularly.
Anyone that claims EHF does not do this and ahs strict rules in place is flat out lying or just trying to convince themselves.

Re: East coast wizards

and the best and most re****ble programs in either league don't do it.
but the weaker and/or unscrupulous programs do it to try and compete

Re: East coast wizards

It all comes out in the wash. But yeah it happens with higher level teams who don't need to be bringing anyone else

It's not just the wizards doing it. Follow along.

Re: East coast wizards

thanks for hittin' me up with your knowledge. 3 kids that have played in every league combined. i'm well aware it's all over. this sh*t organization is just the worst I've seen. bottom line, the better teams don't do it. fact.

Re: East coast wizards

Honestly I’d rather them bring in alternates to make the game competitive, they have been getting rolled why shouldn’t they go try to recruit kids.

They bring in alts to make money. To attract full time kids to a weak team.

What is going on with the East Coast wizards teams. It seems like they bring new kids to their games at every age group. I have never seen so many different colors, helmets and gloves on one team before in my life. Are they that desperate for a win?
Yes they are that desperate for a win.

Re: East coast wizards

Sorry your kid plays for one of the three teams they’ve beaten this year.

Wrong. But, sorry this thread exposes how sh*tty your wizards org is.

Re: East coast wizards

If your bender is any good in hockey, you want him to play strong competitions. Consider yourself lucky that wizards coach tried to bring in alts to be competitive. Maybe focus more on your bender and help him move up a level, so that you don’t have to play wizards in the future.

Your bender? You are a tool. Straight up.

Re: East coast wizards

They’re all tools thinking their kids are going somewhere. The elite now are JV later.

You must be referring to Bobo the clown that coaches the 10's E9. Guys a poser and knows nothing about hockey.
