Capfriarstars

Capitals, Friars, Woonsocket North stars. Rhode Island's way of putting three really bad programs in the EHF and the EMHL. Only in Rhode Island!

Re: Capfriarstars

Are they merging?

Are they merging?

Just Caps and Northstars and Northstars will now be able to put their team in tier 1 EHF

Re: Capfriarstars

So another Rhode Island team in the EHF they can't win a game. Please make sure you check clears though.

Friars are doing well. Oh, that's right. Their elite team is in tier 1 and their lower team plays EMHL. Different rules for different organizations. What happened to the old days where EHF was an elite program do you had to have a team in elite, then you could put a team in tier 1. Tier one is huge now compared to elite with this addition and the addition of the jr huskies

Re: Capfriarstars

These two organizations needed a place to play and the caps get a piece of every kid who plays on these teams. Between 100-200 per player

Your crazy. Friars are t joining and Caps already don't have enough space for all their teams. It's a way to get the Northstars in the EHF

Re: Capfriarstars

Saints only respectable program in the state

LOL

Re: Capfriarstars

Friars best players will now have a chance to play elite with the caps. Can count on your hand how many that is. Friars have 1 good team, 07, and they will lose their best player to the Caps.

Northstar's sold out. The board in place made selfish moves for their kids...They will have 1 team in tier 1 that's it. The 05 team will be the only one, all others will stay in the EMHL which is equal to Town B hockey. Woonsocket was worried about the new complex in Attelboro and losing the 05 kids there, so they handed over the reigns to the Caps. Pathetic this happened to such a great program (historically).

Tier 1 in the EHF is so watered down its pathetic. Look at how the Hockey Northeast teams dominated for a year and left a few years ago. Save your money and play on the A teams in South Shore, CHC etc...

Re: Capfriarstars

Caps are ruining hockey in RI. Folks would rather drive to Massachusetts instead of play for them.

Re: Capfriarstars

Caps own the Friars? How is that possible?

They don't. Rumors
The Northstars in RI merged with the Caps and are putting a tier one team in the EHF next year.

Re: Capfriarstars

The big guy doesn't have deep pockets...either that or his pants are too tight.

Re: Capfriarstars

RI hockey is watered down thanks to the greedy Caps program and its only getting worse. I Take the ride to MA for my kid but I see In the future the same will happen their.

Re: Capfriarstars

Northstars will fold in 3 year. Jr Friars will fold in 5 years. Capitals deep pockets. And let's not forget the Saints. Sorry RI hockey is now Capitals Hockey.

Re: Capfriarstars

You are crazy the Saints have the best coaches from 05-08.. DF and MS will fall to the Saints in 2 years.

Saint do not even have a stable Home rink! Nobody wants to go to Burriville so their kid can play in the "Not so Elite 9" or BHL National divion. Saints will go away when Director realizes he can't sell a half a million dollars for a non-profit and let's it die

Re: Capfriarstars

Lol 05 team is terrible, 06 has kids from town 2 and 3 teams and plays in the BHL. 07 team may not have enough players and same goes for the 08 team. People that run the Saints are the ones who ruined hockey in RI. Still doing it now. Skating out of 3 rinks all over the state plus travel to games all over and playing in BHL??? What is the draw??? There is 1 elite program in RI Caps that's it.

Talking about the Saints not Friars

This is s post about capfriarstar. I can see why that poster was confused. I didn't think you were talking about the Saints. In any case, it also was not about where the only elite team was. Those kind of posts only come from those superior elite parents who think those are the only ones worthy of playing in the EHF and no one else matters. Meanwhile there are plenty of Caps elite teams not performing too well in their divisions.

Re: Capfriarstars

Caps and Bandits are basically same organization. Check please. No development, can't win.

Re: Capfriarstars

I see that "no development" line on here a lot but what does that actually mean? Is it the lack of skills? lack of coaching? lack of ice time?

It means "we" ie his Son's team beat the Caps and Bandits so he is just pumping his chest. I often find myself SMH

Re: Capfriarstars

Lost the focus on development, it's now just a business and since they have deep pockets forget about any studs coming out of RI. And please don't fool yourself about Noel Acciari.... Good not a NHL Stud!!! RI will be luck to produce another 4th liner for the NHL.. Just keeping it real.It's not a knock on him it the brain trust of RI hockey that could have helped him become a better player.

will give the Saints the benefit of the doubt,if Lynch wasn't bought by the Caps I think the Saints would be in a good position.Losing Lynch and having to scramble for ice and making some bad decisions along the way have put the program in a bad light at the moment.Right now it's just not a viable option.

Re: Capfriarstars

Caps is that Sgt. Hulka's team?

Re: Capfriarstars

This trifecta is a nice joint venture....every kid, of every ability in the Providence area, will have a place to skate....good for them!

They already had places to play. Now they have to pay triple to do so. Its a rip off and the Northstar Parents should be livid they got sold out like that.
