Not much information yet, but the E9 and EHF 2005 division will be experimenting with a Allstar game immediately after the season. Players will be picked from their respective league, and must have played in at least 50% of their ehf or e9 teams games. Possibly best of 3 series. Each team allowed 15 skaters and 2 goalies.
Sound like a good idea and should be a good game.
There isn't 15 all stars in the E9
It is comical how easily some of you parents get baited! Four or five ridiculous posts and every other person takes the bait, even after somebody calls the post an obvious farce. Too funny!
News alert; The FED and Elite 9 or whatever they call themselves these days will NEVER do anything in collaboration!!
Are we allowing the 05 who plays up in 04 e9 to participate?
If E9 is so weak, then why the hell are the 06 Islanders poaching the best E9 players? Obviously they are not happy with their current team, and feel the need to throw free tuition at the best E9 players to get them to go over to the Fed.
you are out of your mind. The best E9 players would fit in well with the best EHF players. As a matter of fact, there is a E9 team that has attempted to play the best teams in the country and played well against them. beating some of the better teams in the country. Even beating a few of the better EHF teams along the way. So Sparky, do you want to keep this thread going by proclaiming how the EHF is the best league around? Or do you want to hide behind your sniffles and ahems and say well we get to go to the Q in a year or two provided the parents want to shell out $15 grand? Yea, thought so, now lets hear the excuses. I rest my case.
I will never understand this argument. I've never heard this conversation other than this board. I could care less if some D-Bag father whose kid plays in a different league thinks the league my kid plays in sucks.
My kid will never get cut!
new topic - this one is old
Game will not happen, EHF parents ego will get in the way. It's only a game people, in a blink of an eye it's over. The Allstar game is supposed to be a fun event for those selected to showcase their skills against players with similar talent. But don't worry you will fabricate so much controversy the game developers will stall their efforts, and not waste their time trying to promote New England hockey.
It's too bad.
I am confused as to all the trash talking between these two leagues over the years .
Neither league is even a top five league in this country , I think all of you should relax a bit .
We got our invite today (e9) team. I was told they would invite 3 players, players have 48 hrs to accept or decline, and move on until team is complete.
Received invite and accepted this morning- EHF- Caps
Locked in my spot -EHF- a couple weeks ago. At least that is what my wife told me after her meeting with the coach.
Every year kids from the E9 move over to the Fed. The Fed is always looking to fill rosters of their Tier 1 teams
Isn't this thread about ehf/e9 Allstar game? How does every thread turn into a conversation about how the ehf is better than e9?
If the e9 wins it's because fed didn't send their best players
Fed - 27
e9 - 2
Yeah.... good one... 27-2, I can't stop laughing.....27-2...ha,ha,haha. That was awesome!
The fed parents are way funnier then the e9 parents.
The real question is why did the EHF let the E9 score 2 goals?
Do you and your wife still iron the goal patches on the sleeve of the ehf coats you bought yourselves every time litter chippy scores a goal.
You look awesome in those coats. I'm sure your non-ehf friends are jealous of you when you wear it. I'm sure it's not embarrassing to little chippy either.
Is this happening at any other age group than 06's?
This year just 05's
Game was to take place yesterday in NJ between the Warriors & Islanders 03 teams in the 7/8th consolation game. Not exactly a championship game but an opportunity to see how much better the FED is.
Like the little rats they are, the Islanders cancelled the 12:30 pm game to beat the traffic. That's right! During vacation week on a major federal holiday they wanted to leave early and skip a late morning/ early afternoon game because they wanted to beat the traffic. Doesn't really seem consistant with what most of these parents are willing to do, when it comes to youth hockey does it.
No dog in the fight but when I heard this... People, this is not what you signed up for. Take the game back!! This is the owners narrative. Their agenda!! Let the kids play, win, lose, develop, learn.
Not surprising. Fed teams do not play for the love of the game, they play only if they think they will win, if they are afraid they may lose they will use the weather, traffic, illness, scheduling misunderstandings as an excuse to not play the game.
The event was staged. Those were really EHF Tier 1 kids in the E9 uniforms. You guys know the Fed would never allow an interleague competition. Fake news.
