Welcome to full ice; officially recognized by USA Hockey. Who will take the fed down?
BJE or MFF have to be the favorites
Pick from BJE, MFF, CJH, and don't count out MMF that team won the last 2 years.
Not sure those families moved to play for BJE. They did move and they did choose BJE. Let's see what happens on the ice
They most certainly did. They moved to new play for BJE and the Junior Bruins (brick year). To each his own
Only time will tell the reasoning but I don't think you are right. You don't uproot a whole family just to play on the Brick.....definitely not worth it.
A family moved to Boston for 8/9 year old hockey? To play on the Brick team? No way.. I don't believe that. If that's true, and there isn't another reason like parents jobs, or family circumstances, then that's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.
Check the 06 Flames Roster for an example.
Man, I feel like there's some alternate hockey universe my 9 year old kid isn’t in. He plays on decent team, good kids, good coach. It's not EHF elite, but its competitive. I’m new to the youth hockey world so forgive my naiveté. But people moving to a new state/city, for a 9 year to play hockey just seems dumb on many levels. These super Elite teams stacked with elite 8 and 9 year olds… where are these kids getting discovered? who is paying that close attention to find these kids and compel their families to move for a 9 year olds potential? I’ve read on this board countless times: the team, the league don’t matter. It’s coaching and development. What happens when the kid that moved to play on the Brick team, is 14 and everyone finds out he ain’t that good? Parents must be devastated.
It never seems to shock me how many people can hop on here and judge what another family chooses to do with their family. I have no skin in this game other than my kid will be playing this team 4 times this year. At the end of the day, I don't think anyone on here has all of the information to properly assess what this family is doing (could be moving for work opportunities...I mean Boston is becoming the east coast's silicon valley). It could be a single child home, where the parents are just looking to provide the best opportunities they can. They could have family in the area already that they are trying to get close to. Who knows? We are very fortunate to live where we live, where regardless of the sport our kids choose to play, it's very easy to find competitive leagues. it's not the same everywhere else. "To each, their own." I hope everything works out them, and the Eagles are great...it makes it that much sweeter when my son's team beats them. Too much logical reasoning for the dboard on a Friday?
Kid lived in CJR territory.
I heard a few of NY Jr. Bruins players are moving to Boston. Is the CJR that bad? It's the same level of competition. I don't understand why these kids just don't play in CT?
I'm pretty sure CJR Brick team was better than Jr Bruins this past season and will be next season as well.
At least 3-4 of the best 08 Junior Bruins players are from CJR territory and play reg season somewhere besides MFF.
So what happens after the Brick? Do they relocate the family back to wherever? There is more to life than 9 year old hockey. I sense there are other factors.
Chase the Q you silly rabbit
08 Jr Bruins team.. is that the same thing as the 08 Jr Bruins Brick team? Or different? 08 Jr Bruins lost 20-0 to someone a few weeks ago in the Warrior tournament. Went 0-4. I hope that isn't the Brick team.
I believe that is the Greater Boston Junior Bruins. That is a totally different organization.
I believe it. That kid moved to the Boston area for the Brick. I heard the other kid is too. That's not a coincidence. It's a small hockey world. Whack jobs.
Gotta love the people who think the Brick is the end all be all. It's a really cool hockey tournament especially for people who don't worry about dropping several grand. Nothing more. It's not an opportunity. For a 9 year old? How many 9 year olds can even spell opportunity? People who think its anything more than that have taken too many pucks off the brain pan.
