Re: 95 Giants

Lovell has run his course. He's now become a tired act.


Exactly this is why the Lil bro s having challenges getting the kids to tryouts. He has been bringing the kids in by bus from Boston just to bump up the head count. HaHa these guys know all the tricks.

They signed a contract for 10 years of ice. So that tells you they are committed to establishing another program.

True, they will not be able to field teams at certain levels... no 06 team. while other ages will field one team that will be struggling as they offer contracts to kids cut from LK and BA AAA programs.

Not ideal bit this is how you build a program. Have to start somewhere, take whoever and weed them out over the next few years and upgrade.



Absolutely did not sign a 10 year deal please do not post that rubbish. They signed a 2 year deal, TL got nervous. Raynham program is losing money. The goal was to shut it down and move everything over to 95 after next season. However they are way behind schedule, turn out has been very poor to 95 tryouts across the board. New plan is to move all teams to Raynham for next season and run skills and practices out of 95 when it opens then shift everything over to 95 from Raynham in April 2017 and shut down Raynham program. There is no money in the greater Raynham area, your just not going to pull a lot of club hockey from area not enough club parents / players to make any real loot.


Is that what you really think is going on ??? laughable

Re: 95 Giants

^^^^^above poster is correct overheard a few of instructors talking in Hingham 3 weeks ago.

Re: 95 Giants

how is the program "losing money" they had more teams this year in Raynham than any other year, with more kids on each team.. They are making money hand over fist. They made more cash in eval fees the past few weeks than some programs make in a year...as long as ****ty town kids want to play "AAA" and actual "AAA" kids want to pay to play "Elite" they will continue to rake it in. A club program in a rink that they do not own or manage is a cash cow. They need to pay for ice and coaches. Thats it !! the rest is profit, and taking in 40k in eval fees for 2000 bucks in ice time sounds like a successful business model.

Re: 95 Giants

Most of their team's only have 2 full lines. Can't make bank on those numbers.

Re: 95 Giants

All they care about is who is going to pay and who is going to stay,Knights program is like a revolving door ,Signing town kids and moving the kids who were cut to giants ,and the kids and coaches who have been in the program are fed up and leaving for other teams, Pretty soon you will have the New NEH of southeastern ma. All there teams playing each other, Plus there ego is bigger than their tuition Good Luck

Ya right, Raynham, Easton, Bridgewater. Lakeville have no money. Where do you live....Dover? Plenty of money and kids to play, but you have Kings, Bandits, Providence and Canton all within a 1/2 hour for most players in that area. They issue there is plenty of EHF teams to go to

Re: 95 Giants

Toto, we aren't in Hingham any more!

Re: 95 Giants

No, we're at New England Sports Village!

Re: 95 Giants

Not opening this year at 95. Essentially 2 seasons out. Will close down Raynham and shift the whole shabang over to Attleboro.

My son is on 95 giants. We were told that practices would be in Raynham this upcoming season.

Re: 95 Giants

No, you were told that practices would be in Raynham IF the ice wasnt ready in Attleboro.

Re: 95 Giants

No You were told to go to 95 because the knights signed town kids and there is not a spot for you , But pay 4,000 grand and we got one , and don"t tell little bro different cause He is the boss and he knows it all.

Re: 95 Giants

Seriously??? This program has nothing. They are waiting for the RI Saints to fold so the can collect their remnants. Stay away or good luck.

Re: 95 Giants

What if this program resembles AI or BA more than LK? And, really there is nothing wrong with LK. There are some good coaches slated for next season at 95. We'll see where it goes.

Re: 95 Giants

TL and JL have been developing quality players for years into the college and junior ranks. What makes you think things will change now? They won't.

Re: 95 Giants

I guess the old man coming out of retirement to coach the 08s. The guy is a coaching legend and they will be a force to be reckoned with possibly the new world beaters to surpass the flames.

"The original Tweet Tweet"

Re: 95 Giants

Just curious, any idea what the jersey will look like? Islanders colors?

Re: 95 Giants

They will be crap yellow and green. They will say LK across the front as this program not launching next year and all players will be forced as second-team Knights

Their stacked the old man not going to skate sharpen anymore he's coaching the 08s.

Re: 95 Giants

The 07's look like they will compete very well. Come to tryouts on Saturday at 11:20 and see for yourself.

Re: 95 Giants

They are working really hard to put some competitive teams together. There will be growing pains like any successful program at the beginning. But, when this organization is established, why won't they be as good as any other E9 or BHL American team? and, they'll have a skating facility that will be new and very accommodating. Go Giants!

eventually yes.... but when they are taking kids cut from Knights AAA teams that cant be a good thing. They are trying to make some competitive teams and will have some in the first year... some will be bad, just like the knights

Re: 95 Giants

Drove by new rink today and spoke to one of the construction foremen. He said first sheet will be ready mid-Feb 2017.

You must really dislike these guys to post such a blatant lie. Do you need to see a therapist?

Re: 95 Giants

The 95 Giants will be fine....relax. All organizations have some teams that do some post tryout recruiting, if you will.

Re: 95 Giants

My kid signed up!!

Re: 95 Giants

Several very competitive defectors from other notable conferences has signed up. Go Giants!

Re: 95 Giants

I signed with these guys they better have a team for my kid!

Re: 95 Giants

Registrations will be opening soon I heard.

Re: 95 Giants

Full season filled with town b players, LK rejects and kids cut from other programs. Check please!

Re: 95 Giants

You sound pretty bitter sorry your kid didn't make the team.

Re: 95 Giants

I sound like the guy who never responded to Joe asking my son to come play.

Re: 95 Giants

Sounds like you did him a solid by not wasting his time with you or your kid.

Re: 95 Giants

It will be interesting to see how these teams do. At the 03 level new teams didn't have a lot of success, in the EHF anyway.

Re: 95 Giants

Frankie, have you seen the new 95 Giants logo? Freaking awesome and original! Check out the web site www.95giants.com

Re: 95 Giants

Looks good!!

Re: 95 Giants

It's awesome that this organization is getting noticed. The owners seem to have organized things very well from the beginning and are putting in the right coaches and skill instructors. We'll see how the teams fare, but, don't be surprised if this program becomes a choice place to play in the near future. Kudos to the parents and players that took the leap!

That's the million dollar question. As well as when will this issue be solved?

Re: 95 Giants

Not going be solved anytime soon. Games cancelled. And no ice in Attleboro anytime soon. Even now ice in Raynham/Hingham is scarce for Giants teams to squeeze into possible odd slots. Too many teams, not enough ice for weekend games.

Expect this thru at least November..

Re: 95 Giants

Lenghthy discussion about this on the Town Board under the SSC thread.

Again, this is a disaster if the rinks are not open by thanksgiving once High School Starts and rinks start losing Ice to College and High School programs

Plus the issue with the multiple high school teams that contracted ice for this season in Attleboro will have to take additional ice elsewhere.



Re: 95 Giants

So how do we fix the problem. No kid should be without ice?

Re: 95 Giants

Took a ride by today and saw the zambonis on site. Looks like they have ice.

Re: 95 Giants

Absolutely, there were a lot of Caps parents ready to jump ship this year, but were smart enough to see that the rink would not be done for the start of the season and were nervous about that. You bet there will lots of Caps kids going there next year !

The place is sweet! There is a Krispy Kreme onsite too!

Re: 95 Giants

the main rink has 750 and rink 2 has only 250.

Not too bright..

Re: 95 Giants

Once things settle my kid wants to leave foxboro and sign up for this program. Best skills, best coaches, best facility, the list goes on and on. All I can say is wow! This program has it all.

I gotta say, I don't blame him. All his buddies are talking about it and everything the program is doing is top notch, they are not cutting corners anywhere.

Very Exciting!!!!

The Lovell family?? Great guys but unless I'm missing something they had nothing to do with making this dream a reality. Pretty sure they are just renting ice and the developers did the rest...

Re: 95 Giants

Glad they got it done for December, this is a great move with High School starting !

Plus, we will start to see all of the "EHF" bags back at the Iceplex now that walk on skills will start again !

They were heavily involved and their involvement was key, from who is running the facility to the GC to the investors.. most got involved because of the faith they have in the Lovells.

Thank you!!!! Exactly the Lovell Family was actively involved in every aspect of this facility. Don't get me wrong the investment group is a big deal but if Lovells ever oulled out this thing would be in trouble.
