Not to be a contrarian but the Lil Bruins were mostly 01s and 00s. 8 of the 12 skating in the final were 01 or 00. just saying
All 8 teams had top end 2000s. At u18, the extra year means less than it does when they are younger. At u16 you can see the older kids stand out, but not as much, if at all, at u18.
The Eagles did fine, as did other teams where 2000s were prominent players.
River Rats' best forward was a 2000, who scored 4 goals against Whalers. Senators had several 2000s who could arguably be their best players. Same with Rifles, who were missing their best 1999 forward due to injury.
Eagles did great.. didn't win a game. I guess thats the point of previous comments. The best kids, those with commits, should win games espentially against peers.
