05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

Very good Elite Thanksgiving tourney in Enfield, CT with the Riffles, Patriots, NE Falcons, LI Gulls playing great hockey. Team competition is solid except for the Jr. Bruins Selects who struggled to keep up and lost every game by a wide margin which is just hard to watch. Top Gun and RI Saints both could have had spots in the playoffs if their one game went the other way.

Awesome 5OT playoff game between Patriots and Falcons with Patriots edging out a 4-3 win to meet the LI Gulls in finals. Just great hockey to watch and a good tournament.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

Lol... good hockey!

Thanks for cheering us up. That's a good one coach

sorry your kid got cut....but look on the bright side, you had all weekend to sit on your butt and stuff your fat face full of turkey instead of playing in the tourney.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

good thing the 05 division looks good. The 06 division has a town team in the championship game. Tell us again how your kid is elite.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

I agree it was a exciting tournament to watch. I was a little surprised by the EHF Teams at the 05 level, I think we were a little surprised, and maybe over-confident.

Are you OK? Lets look at the facts. The Assabet Valley Patriots who are 16-0-1 in the E9 and won this tournament played two EHF teams. The first game was Vs Top Gun who is 6-9 in the EHF and the game ended in a tie. The second game was in the semi's vs the Falcons who are 3-13 in the EHF and the Patriots won that game 5-4 in 5 OT. So the best team record wise in the E9 barely beat an EHF bottom team and tied another EHF team who is 3 games under 500.

By the way the team the undefeated E9 team beat the LI Gulls is 10-13 this season and ranked #40 in my hockey rankings. So no need to be surprised by the EHF teams.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

Didn't the Springfield Riffles beat the Falcons and Top Gun? I looked on MHR Tier 1 to find the Riffles ranking but I couldn't find it.

They are listed as a Tier 2 team (AAA) and their other team is listed as Tier 2 (AA)

The AAA team is ranked 7 in the Tier 2 rankings...

He is being sarcastic ! We all know that EHF is the best league in the nation especially at the 05 level [eye roll]

I hope so, I'm not a coach, just a parent and market consultant. In my business, if the generic brand performs as well or better then the name brand, the name brand sales go down.

7 shots and 3 went in?

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

5-3 pp, pp, scored with 1 second

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

This is why the top 4 EHF teams will never play E9 top teams. The only thing they can hide behind is the fact that the teams that got beat are at the bottom.

Really - This year's results:

Falcons - Tied Terriers
Falcons - Tied Kings
Falcons - Tied Islanders
Falcons - Tied Caps

Falcons got beat by Pats TWICE!

EHF owners must be ******* off!

EHF was EXPOSED!!

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

Haha!!!

Top Gun

This years results:

Tied Terriers
Beat Terriers
Beat Breakers
Beat Caps

Lost to Springfield Rifles
Lost to RI Saints
Tied Pats
Lost to Avalanche
Lost to Avalanche


This is why we don't play. Results speak for themselves.

How about this EHF dad's. You focus on league and I will focus on getting my kid good over the next few years.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

consistently winning when you should is a key for 11 year old hockey.

MFR beat SSK 9-1. Tied 1-1 the next day.

Does this mean that SSK is great and MFR sucks?
Does this mean that MFR is great and SSK sucks?
Does this mean they are equal?

No - it means they are 11 and one team played down and one team play up for one game. The real question is do you win more than you lose? Are you more consistent.

TG is not very good on a consistent basis but they are 11 and can play well against better teams on a one off basis.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

If top E9 team (Patriots) played top 4 EHF teams Mid Fairfield,Flames,Islanders,Eagles 10x each the Patriots record at the end of the 40 games would be maybe 4-35-1 at best. Most likely 2-34-4.

Why shouldn't I thump my chest? My kids on a better team than yours! I could care less if he's at the top, middle or bottom. I'm just happy he's on a good team. He'll get better because he's on a good team. I do love to stand along the boards and point out all the flaws in the teams we play as well as let the coach know what we should be working on to win more games. This is how we played those tougher teams more competitively. It's my right as a parent! And so what if I spend time telling my friends that my kids an elite player. I'm happy to see him play at such a high level. It's not like he skates every night and will need a new hip by the time he's 13.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

The coach has had it with that group? So are you assuming that the coaches just ended up with the 20 of the most uncooperative, uncoachable players? It goes both ways. It's not all the coaching, but it's not "the group" either. I happen to know some really nice families with good kids that play on that team. ( even some of the moms with hooves)

It's been said before, I guess I'll say it again since this group seems to be into rehashing old arguments: The top 3-4 EHF teams are the best around here. The rest of EHF and top of E9 are the same. So beat your chest if you have a kid on one of those 3-4 teams, but don't run around saying your mid-pack EHF team is better than anything in the E9 because that's not true. And if you're beating your chest about being on one of those 3-4 teams, then your kid better be in the top third of the roster or he's nothing special...just like the rest of the kids around here. So that's 10-15 daddies or mommies around here that have a kid worth spewing about on an anonymous youth hockey message board. I'm going to bet nobody on this thread spawned one of these 10-15 boys. Who by the way are competing to be the third best 2005 in the area because the top two are playing with 2004s.

You're losing sight of the discussion. Easy to do little man...take a breathe. The discussion is with regards to the teams. Not the individual players. Sorry to burst your bubble of having your kid on a top team, but the fact is the Pats have only proven they would fit in the bottom third of the EHF. For the Pats dad who wanted proof (as if he doesn't know)
vs TG 6-5 L
vs SSK 4-3 L
vs TG 1-1 T
vs Falc 6-3 W
vs Falc 4-3 OT W
Results seem pretty consistent there. Want more? Ok, against better competition:
vs Montreal Nats 6-1 L
vs Little C's 4-2 L
vs CYA 5-0 L
GA 15 GF 3 vs decent clubs. Want more? Ok, when your top player is missing:
vs BJR 1-1. Only blemish on your E9 record.

Clearly the Pats are tops in the E9. Logic dictates that the rest of the E9 would be below that... which is the bottom 3.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

That's the problem with your argument. Your assumption, because you said it is true, is that the top teams in the E9 need to prove to you results. There hasn't been any games of the top E9 teams versus the top EHF teams. So unless you show me those results what your saying is that is your opinion. Show me results of the Eagles, IHC, MMF against the top E9 teams.

EHF dad (so proud you must be), I'm not losing sight of the discussion. I'm saying the discussion is retarded. In my travels, I've found that the guy who chirps loudest about how good his son's EHF team is, most times has a kid on one of the top teams who is riding coattails, or is on one of the lower end teams trying to justify his decision to overlook a really good E9 option for the sake of being battered senseless four times by the top EHF teams. Which are you? And have you done right by your kid? I guess we'll see in a couple of years when they are all in the same pool competing for HS roster spots.

And if you really care about strength of team, just go to MHR and call it a day. I think you'll find it supports your argument.

Nope, no, no...now hold on a minute. You said "The rest of EHF and top of E9 are the same" and "your mid-pack EHF team is better than anything in the E9".
There was no chest pounding about who's team is best (that ship has sailed). Just a representation of the results which clearly show the top of the E9 (currently the Pats) would be battling for a bottom spot in the EHF.

As far as I can see, the only team that has whipped the Falcons is Mid Fairfield, who won 11-1. Other than that, nobody has scored more goals against the Falcons than the Patriots, and only the Eagles have beaten them by more goals.

Everything else is heresay and speculation. But I guess that's why we all come to the D-Board, isn't it?

As far as I can see, the only team that has whipped the Falcons is Mid Fairfield, who won 11-1. Other than that, nobody has scored more goals against the Falcons than the Patriots, and only the Eagles have beaten them by more goals.

Everything else is heresay and speculation. But I guess that's why we all come to the D-Board, isn't it?

Now tell us about your 03


MFR beat SSK 9-1. Tied 1-1 the next day.

Does this mean that SSK is great and MFR sucks?
Does this mean that MFR is great and SSK sucks?
Does this mean they are equal?

No - it means they are 11 and one team played down and one team play up for one game. The real question is do you win more than you lose? Are you more consistent.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

Not only are the top 2 playing 04. The clueless 05 parents don't even realize birth year means nothing come high school time!!!! Think about that. There are plenty of 04s that are in your kids grade that you don't even know about!

Wait till they show up at high school tryouts. i can see them now…


"wait..I never saw him in the EHF…wait the hell is going on"

If top E9 team (Patriots) played top 4 EHF teams Mid Fairfield,Flames,Islanders,Eagles 10x each the Patriots record at the end of the 40 games would be maybe 4-35-1 at best. Most likely 2-34-4.

That's pretty clear. Stats don't lie people. When challenged at all, they've buckled

It's been said before, I guess I'll say it again since this group seems to be into rehashing old arguments: The top 3-4 EHF teams are the best around here. The rest of EHF and top of E9 are the same. So beat your chest if you have a kid on one of those 3-4 teams, but don't run around saying your mid-pack EHF team is better than anything in the E9 because that's not true. And if you're beating your chest about being on one of those 3-4 teams, then your kid better be in the top third of the roster or he's nothing special...just like the rest of the kids around here. So that's 10-15 daddies or mommies around here that have a kid worth spewing about on an anonymous youth hockey message board. I'm going to bet nobody on this thread spawned one of these 10-15 boys. Who by the way are competing to be the third best 2005 in the area because the top two are playing with 2004s.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

You just don't get it. You are a "first time through dad"

Leagues don't matter. Winning (as you say) doesn't matter. What matters is your kid developing and have the physical skill (after checking) that will matter.

consistently winning when you should is a key for 11 year old hockey.

TG is not very good on a consistent basis but they are 11 and can play well against better teams on a one off basis.

Unfortunately the best I can come up with is that the LAST PLACE EHF Falcons 06 elite team BEAT the 06 Elite Rifles E9 a few times last weekend. The Rifles are in 3rd place in the E9, however the Rifles have beat the 1st and 2nd place teams in E9 this season. Oh and the Rifles also lost to a town team last weekend.

Is that enough information for you?

Toodles.....

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

We are talking 05. Come on keep up.

Re: 05 Fall Classic Tourney Update

Winning matters to the extent the environment if fun which is a prerequisite for development. Kids need to enjoy the game and want to play more because it will get hard, very hard once checking comes into play. Some animal from Flin Flon Manitoba with a elevated compete level has no choice but to play hockey or mine for copper! I would take him all day long.
