Please refrain from the "EHF" talk when referring to Bandits, because that is where the illusions of grandeur come in.
The EHF at 05 and 06 level is better, agreed
The Bandits at the 05 and 06 level are below town A never mind BHL or E9
ask any parent on any of those teams, coaches, owners, player development guy, zamboni driver etc....
those teams have kids that were playing Town B last year and bubble kids at that level, kids who could not make Town A teams, Elite teams at EHF or BHL teams and went to bandits as a last resort.
they were even asking kids who quit hockey at 8 to come back to fill roster spots at 06.
at 05, they took a bunch of 06's that would not make the elite 06 teams anywhere else !
The Bandits may be part of the FED, but at these levels, they should not even be in the same sentence.
This year will be better for the Bandits, and that started with getting rid of the elite team at both levels. amd then heavily recruiting outside of the program for kids to fill Tier 1 teams to be competitive because the elite kids are not even capable of that.
