They are not being sold. Ownership is to lazy to do the paperwork.
seen it coming when jh came in could care less about youth program
Shouldn't the wizards go through parity also---pretty weak across the board.
Warriors are sinking. Look at the junior teams and their league falling apart. EHL is almost done. Warriors are a strong program of the past. Been sliding for quite a while.
Hi Mr. Rangers
Warriors are sinking is right. Sinking for several years. A program of the past and not the future.
I can agree on the E9 playoff system ,the EHF format is better in terms of a tied playoff game... the 5 minute OT and then shoot out? Really? I assume most would not want a season to end that way, E9 should adjust this
But wait E9! The Walpole Express will be there next season too
Bwaaaahaaa Express can't even beat valley league teams, They have maybe 3 good teams, from 18U down. wait.....unless E9 is that bad. Does this mean it true T.L. is moving slowly away from this league to focus on Attleboro etc.
Spot on in the 04 E9. Didn't the Patriots beat BA to win title? Lovell Knights beat Boch 7-0? Glades beat Boch too. Rangers are something like 0-29. How is that fun for the kids. They can't be an automatic bid next year right?
The E9 should give automatic bids to 4 semifinalist teams from previous year, and then everyone else should play in. Look at 06 year.
Rifles 15-13-3 (Played In)
Glades 11-15-4 (Played In)
Knights 8-16-2 (Played In)
Jr. Sharks 16-6-3
While the Cyclones, and to a lesser extent the Sharks are beating up on everyone in BHL, you have crap teams like the Rangers and Wizards who 90% of the time cannot compete. Would truly be an Elite 9 if we got rid of the automatic bids and allowed 5 teams to play in rather then just the 3. By keeping the semifinalists, your rewarding the good teams while also retaining some continuity. Seems like a no brainer to me.
Thanks Cyclone Dad. If you look at the scores neither the Rangers nor Wizards are getting routinely blown out. Losing yes, routed? Not usually.
07 birth year is even worse. There are some 'founding members' so bad they elected to play in the BHL. NH Avalanche, Jr Rangers were unable to field teams at this level.
Advantage 25 0 0
Wizards 17 5 4
Patriots 14 7 4 played in
Lovell Knights 7 14 4 played in
Seacoast 7 16 4
RI Saints 6 12 6 played in
Rifles 5 15 6 played in
Warriors 4 16 6
Patriots no longer have to play in - makes sense as they have good teams especially at younger levels. And the 04 team is also a good team that had bad luck in parity round.
Here is 06:
Valley Jr Warriors (Elite) 06 AAA-------94.11
Boston Advantage (Elite) 06 AAA---------94.11
Assabet Valley Patriots (Elite) 06 AAA--93.50
Seacoast Spartans (Elite) 06 AAA--------92.37
Springfield Rifles (E9HL) 06 AAA--------92.24
Green Mountain Glades 06 AAA------------91.69
Lovell Knights (Elite) 06 AAA-----------91.46
Boston Junior Rangers 06 AAA------------89.72
East Coast Wizards (Elite) 06 AAA-------89.51
BHL American 2006
Northern Cyclones 06 AAA----------------90.81
Worcester Jr Sharks 06 AAA--------------90.52
Greater Boston Jr Bruins 06 AAA---------89.05
Boston Advantage (Selects) 06 AAA-------89.02
Boch Blazers 06 AAA---------------------88.32
Rhode Island Saints 06 AAA--------------88.25
Valley Jr Warriors (Selects) 06 AAA-----87.25
Middlesex Advantage Ice 06 AAA----------86.29
Not as flagrant as 2004.
I think if you offer more play-in opportunities you start to gain on the EHF, who is stuck with the 10 founding organizations and unable to trade out the dogs for better teams. A league made up of the 10 best E9/BHL teams (varying by age group), constructed from parity play, would be a better top-to-bottom league than EHF Elite, even though it would lack the strength of the top 2-3 EHF teams that attract the top talent from the area.
Rangers are out of E9? Is this right? Tier I EHF a better option than BHL. Higher level of hockey.
