Bandits, Top Gun, Breakers, Falcons, Seacoast, Saints, Rangers, Sharks and many others from Tier 1 and BHL are a mess. Bottom line to many teams calling themselves Elite and not enough Elite Kids. If you were to combine both the EHF & E9 and have only 6 or 7 teams then the quality of hockey would improve.
There is never a shortage of stupid opinions on this board. Define "elite" please. By my account there are truly about a dozen kids in the whole EHF that stand out. The rest are all interchangeable and you just pay their tuition.
