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.
