Most E9 06 kids I know don't even know the EHF or other similar leagues exist, including the higher-end skilled players that are as good as any in the region. They don't ever talk about it or mention it. They love their league, are familiar with many of the kids they play against, and have a blast playing hockey. They get it.
Well then something must have changed between the 2004s and 2006s because all the kids on my son's team know (and knew) the difference between the NEHL/E9 and EHF.
I have boys at both the 04 and 06. The E9 is weak at the 04 level. The 06 level is strong and anyone can beat one another on any given day. The top 7 in E9 06 division can compete and win their share vs most EHF teams. This has been proven over the last few years at this level. Just look at the quality of teams at 06 E9 invitational in Feb.
Pecking order: Top 1-3 Fed teams are a step above. For the most part the rest of Fed and top 3/4 of E9 are a wash - could also throw a few of the top Tier 1 teams in with them. Bottom E9 and Bottom Fed both stink.
Your an idiot. The "top" 1-3 Fed teams are not a step above. The EHF just got their a$$ kicked by the VJW.
Have to love Fed parents. Every time the E9 plays a Fed team there is an excuse. Its Ok - your teams lost several times, not just once.
It is why EHF owners don't want the EHF and E9 to play - you got exposed. Gallant is going crazy I am sure. The team is in his backyard.
I don't understand why this is such a big deal? Why does an adult feel the need to bash a team/league that his kid doesn't play for? It is embarrassing
These last couple posts examining E9 EHF have just proven my point. If your kids know the deference it's because of you. As usual, parents causing the issue.
Administration pulled a post. Shame on you
Was about how Gallant must be furious that VJW beat up on EHF teams and in his backyard.
Admin is scared of Gallant.
TO THE POSTER WHO SAID EHF has the top 3 teams - Please enlighten me and tell me how you know this! Your the same guy that thought the EHF worst team could destroy any E9 team. Love guys like you - you say it, so it must be true!
Was there a tournament? Who did VJW beat?..... I saw them play earlier in year and are pretty good. Hoping all this is about them beating someone good.
I hope your kids on both sides of this argument see these post. You tough guys must make these kids feel so good about themselves. And you are all crazy if you don't think kids read this stuff
you need a new topic - this is old and stale
Then why does he block teams in the area? If he is so confident.
