So they are content with being the second best team, then Flaming out in the playoffs? (notice my word play there?) Good attitude.
Hmmmm...so how many core kids(you know, the kids that they started with) have retained(developed)..just wondering? Any kids move up from their tier 1 team?
I say who gives a Rats Ass what or Why someone makes a decision to move to another Team or Organization. Hockey People are So ****ed Up......Who cares for Christs Sake what the guy next to you does..Is he paying your Bills? NO....So ****'em...........Is it Okay to swear on this Board
And yes to these parents it is about beating the flames .... several of the players didn't make the Brick team and parents are dying to beat the flames. Hitch a ride!
So they (IHC) put a superteam together, then refuse to play anyone else outside of EHF, that may give them a good game. Keep ducking. At least the Flames will play anyone anywhere at anytime.
Same goes for Jr. Terriers, Jr Eagles and South Shore kings. All will take anyone on and let the best team win. Props to these orgs for doing that. Gallant can keep protecting his teams, but everyone knows the truth outside of the IHC inner club.
Flames are as boring as their 1980's uniforms
You call them boring because you know full well that your precious 04 from TG Tier 1 couldn't make the 06 Flames Elite. Sad. How's the job search going?
I will bet you that 2 of your top forwards are begging to join IHC after next season. Sorry the 06 Mite Hall of Fame team is over for you Flamers
