Seacoast is not a deep team and the Islanders took their best player from last year. They beat them 7-4 last year in the same super series so this years results should not be surprising. What is surprising is that IHC had their pick of any E9 team to play and they selected Seacoast 2 years in a row. And yes, they do pick and choose who they want to play.
Gallant won't allow IHC to play any VJR team at any level and convinces other EHF teams to follow suit. Been like that for past few years. More to do with an ownership envy than anything else. It's a $$$$ thing. Get used to it
Isn't the E9 really an oxy moron??
[/quote]There's never E9 parents on here. Definitely none "making excuses." Only EHF parents beating their chests about a youth hockey league. Truly bizarre behavior. If you know anything about it, EHF recruits and cherry-picks the best E9 players, offers zero and half-tuitions. E9 teams don't have the pockets to do any of that. EHF doesn't "develop" players any more than a your standard little league "develops" college baseball players. It gives them a decent place to play. The comments on here about leagues are truly bizarre. [/quote]
I am a dad of an IHC Elite player and I approve of this message.
