I can't decide who is a bigger loser, the guy that asked who is going to win the '06 Shamrock or the guy that answered the question seriously and added graphics.... enjoy the game and spend your time how you want, just pump the breaks on taking it too seriously, its a spring event and you will be in Foxborough all weekend watching 10/11 year olds play hockey... not exactly one of life's high points I hope, try not to attract attention to yourself.
06 Tropics will be heavily favoured but they tend to have more dramatics in that organisation.
First, I do know that there is some distension on that team. I bet you my double-double and a dutchie that you'll have kids leaving the team before the end of the weekend.
The rest of the field is mediocre at best. Lot's of good kids sprinkled in with marginal players walking around with their winter teams toque on.
No scout will be seen inside - most are staying close to their 24 of Blues in the lot or when they need to be in, having a tip of their mickey by the glass.
Bunch of keener's walking around this AM talking to coaches about their young guns.
Saw a kerfuffle when someone knocked over a kid on MassEdge.
All in all boys looks to be a good show
Looks like a good tournament. HAHAHAHA what a joke. 12-0, 10-0, 19-0

Anyone know what regular season team(s) the 06 S. Nassau Rock hail from? They had some pretty impressive players.
I was obviously aware that the Rock pulled kids from different teams, but was curious what league. They obviously showed that you don't have to be EHF elite or E9 or MA to be the best.
Nasty hit from behind at one of the games we caught. Embarrassing. I hope the kid who got hit is ok
Not a surprise the kid that did it was from the 06 Breakers. Something Sully? Just a regular hit for one of the hacks from Rockland.
I still get a kick out of the Vipers. They put their 2006 team in who have been together forever and got rolled. Should've have jumped and taken the E9 BJR when they had the chance to get a fresh start.
BJR kids offered nothing but a losing attitude to the process. Breakers kids showed off their dirty cheapshots. Tropics the class of the tourney, despite having a few IHC kids on the team...
2 best players on Tropics was the Flames kid and KP's kid from BA. BA kids going to IHC are ok players. Definitely not game changers.
I like the 2 hand chops and cross checks from behind we have all come to know the breakers for!
Always played dirty, but are now falling of the cliff skill-wise. Their elite teams at all ages are an absolute joke. BSB are the new Bandits.
The problem is the breakers play like that most games.
I have seen multiple kids on the 06 elite breakers hit with the intent to hurt without a doubt. I'm told the worst offenders are some of the coaches kids.
Agree to disagree. He is definitely one of the dirty players on the breakers. Parents should be very proud
That's a complete lie! He pinned him against boards . Stepped back and boarded him from behind with nothing but the numbers in front of him.
He isn't even the worst offender on the breakers!
The coaches are very arrogant
I was told the head coach was the only coach coming back on the bench next year.
nothing to do with coaching - it's a spring tournament. It's a good indication of overall problem with Mass hockey. There is a group of kids at every age group that go to every skills session under the sun and play on every tournament team out there. Over time these kids become the "anointed" ones because they are most visible. As they get older some of these kids are truly the best players in the age group - most of them are not anymore. Over time the athletes will prevail - lot of big strong "athletes" out there that don't play hockey 12 months a year - these are the kids to watch out for going forward.
