Those teams are right where they belong, in a competitively balanced division where none of them is dominating. They've got a number of losses and ties to the Tier I teams of elite-organization teams. The last thing the 06 elite division needs is some more automatic wins for the top five or six teams - a waste of everyone's time.
Tier 1 Fed is actually Tier 2, Get your terminology straight Fed Bozo. Enjoy your AA team.
Teams should leave: Teams are bring in players every game play game to make the playoff. If the EHF will not enforce the roster freeze rules then move to a league that will. E9/BHL
WN you must have a lot of time on your hands. You are going to be on the board too much now.

What's a good number of games to know where the kids skill level is?12-14? Maybe have a weekend tourney with the bottom 2-3 elite vs the top 2-3 black tier 1, depending on what happens teams move up or down. Not to sure how difficult it is to change around the remaining games and parents egos might take a hit but I'd rather my son not be involved in blowouts winning or losing.
Every year about this time people talk about all the teams that are leaving EHF and every year they add another color coded division.... Why? Because all the teams and kids are where they should be .... also if the parents and kids want to play in the EHF Elite they go tryout for one of the teams... then when they can't make any of them they go to another team or league... some at this point complain that they can't play into the league because their kid looks good playing against weaker talent.... if you don't have a single kid that an make an EHF Elite team and you can't win the black or white Div how are you going to move up..... Oh and don't tell anyone but all the owners know this as well. they are not moving leagues so that 95% of their teams can play in the AAA div of a weaker league... sorry thems the facts
Northstars only one going to E9. Others are PHL candidates.
Here is my 2 cents:
Fed Elite/E9 Create Division of 16 Teams
EHF Black, White BHL American Create Division of 16 Teams
EHF Silver, BHL National Create Division of 16 Teams
