As Howard Cosell famously said "Down goes Frazier", that my friends is what we had this weekend. We have a clear #1 this week.
1.) MMF - As I promised beat the BJE and the spot is well earned. You get the keys to the castle. Please enjoy, but don't be messy.
2.) Caps - I would call this more of a 2A and 2B. You tied the IHC and BSB. The BSB caught me by surprise, but given you beat IHC previously and tied them, I have to give it to you. Not by much and if the IHC hadn't tied the Falcons, they would be here.
3.) IHC - Again, more of a 2B than a 3. I was OK with the tie to the Caps, although if you want to advance you need to win those types of games. I really thought you were going to come away with 2 victories last weekend.
4.) BJE - My how the king has fallen. It is not just that you lost to IHC and MMF, it is the scores. I am not sure if there is something going on or this is who you are. You cant just beat up the lower teams.
5.) Patriots - The E9 is as I thought. 2 good wins this week and you are clearly the team to beat in the E9. Easy games for you this weekend. Good luck.
6.) Terriers - Even though you had 2 loses against MFR, I have a feeling that is a very good team.
7.) TG - The tie against SSK was disappointing. You also had a win on the weekend. It is amazing how close you are on most of these games. Seems like you are always 1 goal away - go get one more goal scorer!
8.) Jr. Rangers - You had the weekend I thought you would. Beat by the Patriots, but you beat VJW. Great job.
9.) VJW - Again you beat the Wizards and you got beat by the Jr. Rangers. All was right with the List.
10.) Avalanche - Good battle against Patriots and good win. Beat the teams above and move up.
An extra special GOOD luck to the local teams competing in the EHF Tourney this weekend. Go and represent! Sounds like it is going to be fun. One side note - the list wont move much given the tourney. Although you will have common opponents, it is tough to gauge in a tourney like this. We will get back to head to head the following week. As far as E9 - everyone should win their games this weekend. Good Luck as well.
Out and as always go have fun with your kids!!!
Top Gun #7??? They lost to SSK 3-2, it wasn't a tie. And the beat the Bandits by one goal! Shouldn't be in top 10.....
BJE will be there at the end of the year.
Every year start off a bit slow but by end of year they are playing their best hockey
Isles did dominate them but the 4 -1 loss this week to MMF was actually a much closer game then the score reveals.
Also they got one of their top forwards back from injury last week so the scoring issues may get better...
Must definitely give a good showing this week against some good competition...
Why not say, we are not good enough or they made more plays than we did or they are better than us or we did not want it bad enough...
If your E9 players had as much dedication and determination as you guys with your shi*t disturbing post..... Maybe they wouldn't be in the E9....Bahahahaha
There's a rage in the cage...
So let me get this right. The IHC and BJE lost their games because a few forwards from IHC were missing, the IHC goalie was missing, and the BJE had a forward missing. Assuming a few means 2 that would be a total of 4 players that, by your own words, are the cause of a loss or win.
Again, the above is your own words.
So what does that say about the other players? So maybe your player isn't as impactful as you may think. Maybe it is a very small handful that are truly elite. So when you bash another team or league, please understand, by your own words, your little bender may belong there.
Are you joking. You don't think listing reasons why you lost are excuses for losing?
What world do you live in?
It's morons like you that are stating all the items you listed. These teams could care less. Both Eagles and IHC know they are good teams. It's angry people like you that is the problem.
No its parents like you that go and scout other teams to rip a kid out of a situation that is going well. Having fun with friends and developing. I get how each decision is that of the players parents, but it is you who is a loser that would go scout.
Just ask TG, Wiz, and AI how you did that. It didn't work - for all but one, of the kids that you did that to, are not better off for it.
You are so hated because you treat 11 year old kids like they are commodities or pieces for your master plan.
Shame on you for scouting when your not a coach.
Oh and by the way I may be a parent of one of those kids you did that to and yes I may have made a bad decision and drank the cool-aid and that is on me. Next year it will be different.
With 10 forwards on IHC absolutely one or two kids will get cut next year. Your ok with it though because 11 year hockey is so important.
Wow...get on some meds. Remove your shoelaces and stay away from the Tobin. BTW, no one recruits. People inquire. Happens on every team at every level. Tier 1 teams have turn over with replacement players. There isn't one team in EHF that didn't add players and not cut anyone.
If you make the statement no one recruits....you don't IHC & MP
Honestly, no one recruits 11 year old hockey! Someone really wrote that on this dboard. I am a parent and my phone rings constantly from other EHF programs. The reason I don't take the jump is because my kid is doing great, developing with a great coach, great parents and great kids - the total experience.
looking for an expert family advisor on all things related to the development of little johnny's hockey career. I figured there would be tremendous insight on this dboard. so many smart hockey minds here! can you help me and my family navigate the EHF/E9, find the right team, right coach and present us with the right tournament opportunities. perhaps make introductions to other well connected hockey minds. I generously thank you.
There's no need to fear - Underdog is here!!! First I will suck you in by shining your shoes. Then I will turn my attention on your family. Then I will have private conversations with Sweet Polly Purebread about the proper erection...I mean direction for little Johnny. I will evaluate your options and invoice you for 15k for services rendered. Off the record conversations will be free, of course. But don't forget the 8% commission on little Johnny's entry level contract and the 15% closing fee...this is negotiable but hey, there is a lot of Riff Raff out there.
There is a dad from IHC that recruits players all the time.... he's looking for that Super team... he scouts other games and recruits players... not sure if this is good for the team or his kid....
Slow day on the market?
Hanging out at the fish market. See fish, sell fish, smell fish.
Or maybe he took a defensemen from us two years ago. Told everyone he was going to stay and then left with another kid.
Crickets today from the BJE crowd about MHR today...funny how quiet it is when Eagles dive bomb!
This is not that thread. It is 05 Elite Week 4
