I find it interesting that there is an 06 Elite team this year and these players are playing 05 instead of 06.
Interesting maybe but definitely not surprising at all, everyone should see by now that the 06 team is a typical 06 Bandits sham. Do they have a goalie yet? Half the roster is made up of EHF elite washouts that either aren't good enough or have parent problems, tier 1 players and players from a second rate BHL/E9 team and the other half will be town kids that can barely skate. Where can this program pull from? They have no player development, their Tier1 white team is meh - LK bottom of E9, Giants not even in E9, Caps suck, BSB suck and they are limited by player movement rules in the EHF. Coaches are from BSB so they probably suck. This team will be the worst Bandits 06 experiment yet. I would say I feel bad for all the families moving over there but this has been happening in Bridgewater long enough now that everyone should clearly know what they are signing up for so good luck. The only thing BB have going for them is that all the other programs in that area seem to be getting just as bad as they are. Sorry to break it to you but if you want a good hockey program you are going to have to drive north.
So, I'm not expecting a lot from this 06 team either but to say they will be the worst experiment. You either didn't have a kid who played for WN or your kid was on the 06 team before WN and can't admit that almost every kid from on the original Elite team is playing tier 1 now or barely staying afloat in the Elite world. And playing tier 1 is OK. It's thinking your kid is Elite when they are not that causes the damage. As far as the BSB coaches, it appears they have certainly done a good job coaching the tier 1 black black team so why make judgement on coaches you clearly don't know because they are from the Breakers?
They just took 1st place in Tier 1 Black.
Won T1 White championship last year.
Must be doing something right.
Did you read the post you responded too? Doesn't appear they were bashing the coach but as far as the the BSB tier 1, you can't even come close to equating tier 1 white to elite. As far as this years black team team... doesn't look like they were bashed in this post either but does the fact that they are in first place make you think that they would be competitive in Elite?
