While I understand this was a facetious post. I could not agree more after watching the super hyped up IHC I automatically assumed that I was watching their Teir 1 team. Nope was watching their elite powerhouse team.
Move puck well, positionaly sound. As far as individual talent, those kids could be replaced by any kid on any team ranging from EHF elite to BHL !
Goalie was very very good, and that is the only difference !
You could be talking about any "elite" team in any league. One or two top players make all the difference, the rest fill out the rosters. 9 of 10 youth hockey players don't play beyond high school, 3% move on to D1; it's all the same math.
