What OP is trying to warn you about is the tier 1 is so wide open orgs are just signing kids and lying what league they are going into.
i can confirm this, i was told one thing by an Islanders coach only to find out something different in regards to what Tier 1 league this team would be in...
You're fooling yourself if you think bringing your kid to tryouts will get him a spot on an elite team. Those teams are hand-picked and established well before.
