So what has happened to this organization? Daddy coaches ruling the kingdom driving it into the ground.
U14 - basically a town B team.
02 Elites - still good however not what they once were. Midgets can't rule the ice once checking starts.
02 Tier 1 - complete joke. Sub 500 season yet again. Midgets and mental cases who don't know how to play the game. Coach keeps job. Crazy.
03 Elite - enjoy your last season when and games. Tiny team that plays squirt type hockey. Will get killed at bantams. Coach vows to get everyone To the pros. Kids get playing time if they are friends of the coaches kid.
03 Tier 1 - in the lower division. Tiny. Could be playing town A if they improve their game.
04 Elite - respectable.
04 Tier 1 - middle of the road at best. Underperformers.
05 Elite - middle of the pack, underperformers. Typical Kings team of today.
05 Tier 1 - Will under 500 for the year. Enough said.
06 Elite - total joke of a team. Should be playing at tier 1 level.
06 Tier 1 - doing well. In the weight division. Basically a Town B team.
07 Elite - just getting by in a bad division.
07 Tier 1 - working really hard to come in last place. Almost there. Future ain't too bright for the kingdom.
08 Elite - basically the same team as the 07 elites.
08 Tier 1 - same as the 07's. Bottom dwellers. Talent pool not looking good for the organization.
Seems the organization's focus is now on Jr. Hockey and college placements. Kiddie hockey rings the register win or lose.
SH only cares about NHL. So scram.
What kind of a loser would take the time to write this?
okay, I'll bite....who is the second team that is gonna "step it up" and be respectable next year?
Big fan of the 07 Elite and 08 Elite Coaches. after that the program is no better then the Breakers.
It seems like over the years the program was fueled by these hockey dads that were past NHL'er and D-1 types that loved the game, had their kid's interests as their number one priority and put together these super teams at each age group to go to tournaments and roll over the competition. These guys have seemingly moved on as their kids got older and there wasn't a group of new dads of crazy hockey guys to take up the slack. Finally the organization realized that hey, the checks all get cased regardless of the insane dad's winning games and divisions so who cares. Now it's all about the Junior teams and getting kids placed on D-1 college teams...and the checks still get cashed.
06 Elite coaches are doing a good job as well. They walked into a bad situation and are doing pretty good.
Seems like SH is on this site posting quite a bit defending his money grab of an organization. The kingdom has become the boch blazers of the area
RT looking to sell them after tryouts, so look for a new owner. How ironic if Lovell bought them?
03E blowing up...
LH killed the 06 team last year, losing and/or not even bothering going after 1 full timer and 2 alternates who are now playing on the Brick team. you dont let talent walk out the door without a fight.
Latest rumor going around is that LH is heading to the Bandits and taking a few kids with him.
LH is taking his kid with him and will be assistant coach at bandits.
So the first place 03 Elite team is breaking up? ahhhh..hence the phone call
Definitely taking his kid over to bandits and is coaching, also pulling over 2 other kids with him. He's going to try to make a come back.
His dream now is to take down SSK and show them they made a mistake when they pushed him out.
I'm pretty sure the 06 bandits have won maybe 3 or 4 games in 3 years of league play. That's a lot of losing to overcome.Seems like they are trying to take strides that will turn that team around.good luck.The 06 Kings however will regroup and be improved next season
RT and ST were longtime friends with the man. W - L more important than friendship I guess. Welcome to the Kingdumb! Don't turn your back!
08E lost their superstar midway through the season and can't compete - JH living vicariously through his non-elite kid. T1 is a joke, coaching blew up, 8+ kids leaving they may not even have a team next year.
sorry your kid got cut
Looking at the playoff standings and results Kingdom having a tough go of it in playoff play. Many losses by close to double digits at many levels. Changes to come?
06 goalie was tough to watch
Lowest of low of organizations. Talent dwindling. U14 elites will be only good team next year. Put a fork in it SH, your done. Now go hire some more groapers to work in your snack bar.
Terriers better at all other levels.
You have really messed it up when you go from being "the" place to play to "the" place to run from. Not changing out coaches and focusing on development does that to a program. Congrats boys, the Terriers are now much, much better than you across the board. To make matters worse, your tier 1 program is is even more shambles.
Happens more than you think. Once checking starts, a lot of the kids can't take it and either stop playing or are just not what they were because they can't skate end to end without getting blown-up. They will either get used to it and figure it out or move on to another sport.
