Not only would the 05 Hurricanes beat the bottom 3 EHF/E9 teams they would kill them. They would probably be in the middle to back of the EHF Elite league. They have beat the Elite Rangers, Elite East Coast Spartans and beat teams that Top Gun Elite lost to. Plus the Hurricanes pull from tiny geographic area compared to the off cape teams. It is coaching for sure. You obviously haven't seen them play and have no clue. You are making blanket statements but don't actually know. Their ranking would be even higher if some of the EHF/E9 teams would have the balls to play them... they are afraid they would be embarrassed!
P.s My son plays EHF Elite 02 so don't even bother with your bender remarks. We have actually watched the Hurricanes 05 in several tournaments... not sure what they look like this year though...


It's not hard to go back and check on your claims. The Rangers game is not shown on MHR, you beat the East Coast Wizards Select team, and you beat a few EHF Tier 1 teams. I see you did beat the Seacoast Spartans Elite team, but they were at the bottom of their division (7 wins all year). You played nobody, so the record is not all that impressive.

Look, I'm sure the kids had a great year and they are improving under the leadership of a good coaching staff. But let's not overdo it. And if you think I believe that you don't have a kid on the team...and why would you call them benders?


Great response! I don't have a dog in the fight but the thread piqued my interest, so I looked up the team. Record is impressive, the opponents/ Not so much!

The kids should be proud of themselves for having a really successful season. Good for them! The dad might want to get a little grip on reality though. The team squeaked by a bunch of mid level tier 2 teams. Lets reign it in a little buddy. If you are going to be cocky about it, you better be sure you know your audience.

The Hurricanes are a good program within their league, nothing more. They cannot and will not beat EHF elite teams or even E9 teams. The parents are often confused when they compete against other leagues and they don't understand the levels within each league for examples E9, American and BHL. Beating a select team in the BHL (lowest level) isn't the equivalent of beating an E9 team. Beating a team in the EHF white division (lowest level) isn't the same as beating an EHF Elite team. This upcoming season they have added a few players and one of the craziest coaches on the planet so they should be improved unless the new coach destroys the team!

Re: EJEPL

Who is new coach?

EJ = MPDHL

Both leagues are garbage. Both leagues have organizations that are just trying to keep their doors open. These orgs just need to close shop. All the New England region needs is 2 competing select leagues (EHF and E9/BHL). That is all that is needed to keep it competitive for the youth levels. The level of play becomes watered down if other leagues are allowed to continue. MPDHL should be closed and the kids on these teams should be playing town. EJ barely has any teams in the region. They are mostly a New York, PA, New Jersey league.

At the Midget and up levels, USPHL is the best league with the EHL becoming the lesser of the 2 leagues. The EHL should close shop. The region only needs one league at the pay to play level. At Tier 2, NAHL is where the best players in the region should be playing. I hope the efforts in Mass for a NAHL team are successful. Paying to play hockey at the Junior level is BS. If you are still paying to play hockey at Juniors then you are going to be paying for your college as well. You might as well hang them up and save your money for college.


take your inferiority complex and dream on, I can tell you that some of the MPDHL - not all, some - can beat up EHF Elite teams. Some years stronger, some not so strong. And no my kid did not get cut and yes kid plays both. But, I agree, on average the EHF has the better players, but that doesn't mean you get the better development.


20 or more teams in NE are in the EJEPL, 70+ teams they don't seem to be hurting. You do realize it's a supplemental league and not full time so don't compare it to the other 2. Make sure you post your child's name when he's in the NHL. Typical parent who never played the game which are the majority of Fed/E9 parents. BHL and Fed T1 teams aren't great, and this league is a better option at a much lower cost and teams don't have to pay crazy fees. In a perfect world there would be 1 Elite league and players would go back to town. But that won't happen due to egos and money. MPDHL is good at the U 14 and up and an 05 team won the JWK AAA so they must have some good teams.

Re: EJEPL

JWK AAA is less than JWK Elite. You do realize that? Your town MPDHL team won a town tournament. Good for you. I got some news for you. It is your ego that needs to be fixed. You must be a youth hockey director or a secretary for one of these leagues because they are the only ones that know how much teams are paying to join leagues. Keep your jealousy to yourself and shut up.

EJ and MPDHL are garbage leagues

Re: EJEPL

Your New England Jr. Hurricanes team beat the East Coast Wizards Select team. News flash, you didn't play the top team. The East Coast Wizards Elite team would of destroyed your son's 05 team. You are delusional.

Re: EJEPL

As for the EJ teams being strong, well the ones in NY, NJ, and PA are. The 20 from around here are garbage like your New England Jr Hurricanes organization. I would put the following orgs in this category of being garbage:

First, at the youth level
cp dynamos
nh monarchs
northern cyclones
RI Hitmen
Cisco Bay
NS Wings
new england jr. hurricanes
maine moose
new england wolves

then at the midget and up level (Which don't even have 20 teams from around here in it, I'm not including the Connecticut teams).
NS Wings (Org does not even have youth teams anymore)
nh monarchs
nh avalanche (BTW, youth teams play in the E9/BHL)
boston bandits (BTW, youth teams play in the Fed)

Hell you have teams from California in this idiotic league. How the hell does that work?


That is a real strong league you got going there. EJ and MPDHL should just fold.

Re: EJEPL

Wow some touchy people here! Nobody ever said EJ is Elite you dummies! Try comprehending what is written. Basic statements about leagues have a clue! If you don't like the league take your small centered brain and debate about who's better E9 or Fed elsewhere. Keep living through your kids, you do realize you don't actually play for these youth teams right? Sure your the dad's walking around with team gear at the rinks! TOOLS! and no my kid's not a bender and I'm not a Hurricane parent.

My son has played E9, Fed Elite, as well as some lower leagues and town. The problem is that there is so much demand for an alternative to town hockey that all of these teams ( and in step many leagues) have cropped up. This in of itself is not a bad thing! The problem is that the Two Powerhouse leagues have their own agendas and self interests in mind. Maybe it is good business but certainly not good for all. They are protecting themselves as a league ( Quality Brand) and as individual organizations ( Territory) by controlling who they allow in and what level they place them in. The Programs that want to make a run of it are forced to create their own leagues, join a lesser league or play as independents. Much tougher to sell the parents on the quality of the program and the opportunity to develop the players when everybody is sh**tting on their NEW program. Countries like Finland work together developing ALL the kids early and then allowing the clubs to compete against each other later on. It's too bad we will never be able make the necessary changes ( Socialist vs Capitalistic countries). Our society would never allow for that type of collaboration.

Re: EJEPL

This is an example of an idiot parent or an owner/youth organization director who keeps telling himself the EJ is better. There are stupid people everywhere.
