You all do realize that 99% of the Fed and E9 players will all be playing beer league hockey with the town players at the age of 21?
Saying top town team is like saying good looking ugly girl.
Town is still town and your kid would be embarrassed by the 3rd line FED kid.
And just because SOMEDAY all the kids will try out for HS teams doesn't change the fact that from Mite to U14 the FED is the best league and the kids who play in e9 or below are mostly weak players.
Even BAs best 3 are middle level FED kids.
And if you move your FED kid to e9 enjoy the new label your kid will have.
Deal with it.
Stop looking at the leagues and look at the player. Because someone plays in the Fed doesn’t automatically mean they are good. Because someone plays in the BHL doesn’t mean they are bad.
I know quite a few kids who turned down fed teams to play BHL that are now playing prep or college hockey.
This post is obviously from some poor fool who’s kid is a mediocre FED player and they are merely trying to bolster their fragile ego. It’s a fact that the top E9 (and even FED platinum) players are better than the mid to lower end FED elite players. Some of those top players would also be top FED elite players. Also many of the top FED kids came out of the E9 because their parents were lured over by coaches trying to improve their team because they failed to develop their existing players. Anyone who knows anything about hockey and/or who has been through it knows that in the long run none of this matters. The true test of a player is where they are at by the time they are 18-22 years old. Austin Matthews (arguably the best American born hockey player ever) grew up in Arizona playing on mini rinks. If that doesn’t make us clear to you then you are just not going to get it until your bender ages out. So in the meantime stfu and enjoy the ride with your kid and let him have fun.
The FED has a ton of players that can't hang. That is why they play top two lines and not your benders line. Glad you are elite.
Since they developed a sound algorithm that crunches the numbers and shakes out mathematically. Sorry that your bender got cut from the EHF
Clearly a post from a parent that had a kid cut from an E9 team and now plays on bandits elite. So no kid playing in the E9 is going anywhere at any current age? This is just getting silly! Congrats on getting on the BB👏
