Re: E9 04 Level

No sarcasm...just watch, the Warriors will be a top 10 team as they gear up for nationals as Bantam minors. And I am not a dad of any kid on the team.


So you're the mommy of a kid on the team? Seriously, what did they do in the off season to improve? Send the kids to Russia for some special "vitamins"?

*Advantage Ice



Based on play this weekend Knights, ice and glades.

Re: E9 04 Level

Wizards definitely got better - hung in there with at least one very good teams, and scratched out some ties.

Avs also tied a good team, but not quite as dangerous as Wiz.

So much for the Ice and Knights the E9- they are out of it after 1 week

Re: E9 04 Level

saw that! Saves us a drive down to Raynham. Looked at standings and it was tight. Gave up only 7 goals in the 5 games and did not advance. Strange. We played Knights in Warrior tournament 2 weeks ago, very surprised they are not moving on, stronger than last year. Ice not good enough, plain and simple.

Re: E9 04 Level

Patriot's top player is out for awhile due to injury. Going to be a challenge for them this week.

Re: E9 04 Level

I'd still have to say Pats get in, although very surprised at the VJW Selects...can't imagine VJW Selects beat the Pats...

Re: E9 04 Level

Patriots have been eliminated !

Re: E9 04 Level

Wow how things have changed since Mite hockey! AVP who once could compete with the top EHF teams now doesn't even qualify for the E9...

Try to win without your top 2 centers...at 12 yrd old

Re: E9 04 Level

Boch wins? Good for travel, but boy is this division weak. Glades were pretty good last year. I'm sure better than the three teams that made it. But then again maybe not.

Looks like 06 will be only level?

Re: E9 04 Level

04 Level was very surprising. Glades, Knights, Patriots all missed out. American Division would beat most all E9 teams. System is clearly broken when you have bad teams grandfathered into E9.

Re: E9 04 Level

Agreed. There are 2 teams who are a problem at this level, Rangers and seacoast. BA isn't fantastic but hopefully they improved. It's a shame that one if the better left over teams, like glades or patriots can't replace them.

BJR could possibly lose to all American BHL teams but that's it...Seacoast will compete this year, maybe not be a top team but should be in the thick of it

Re: E9 04 Level

Glades, Knights and Patriots would all be better in the E9 than those teams. Glades will be much better than the Boch team even though they lost to them. Saw the Knights play and they are better than they were last year and they were in E9 last year. They lost 1 game so far and it cost them E9. Patriots without top player, that makes a big difference. BHL American would beat most E9 teams as OP stated. Patriots, Knights, Glades, Bruins, 95 Giants etc... to say E9 is false, most of those teams would not be in if they had to play to get in.

Re: E9 04 Level

Organizations should be honest with themselves. Talking to you Rangers! For the betterment of the league and your own team , you should of opted into BHL. Sea coast did just that for 2 seasons & should be applauded. They have now fielded a competive team . (Hopefully)
As for teams who made it , congratulations! Stepped up when it mattered!
Really feel bad for Glades , a very good team and E9 worthy. I can only assume the travel caught up to them. AVP was also unfortunate but you can't take anything away from teams who made it. Avs , Wizards , Warriors are all solid teams and organizations and will ultimately pay the price , hopefully they fill the gap by participating in strong tournaments.

Re: E9 04 Level

The only reason anyone would play at BJR is to call their kid an elite player. Rink is a ****hole, skills are the biggest joke going and ownership only cares about filling teams with 19 players tuition.

We should rename this thread "E3 04 Level". Hopefully at least BA improved and there is a fourth semi-competitive team.

Re: E9 04 Level

Maybe BA will be better. Maybe the rifles will have picked up supporting talent and be less of a one player show. Maybe seacoast, boch and warrior selects are good enough to make the jump up and compete. Lots of maybes at this level, hopefully it works out and it's not a two team show like last year.

No team at any level should be grandfathered in. The system is a joke.
