Happy New Year everyone!
My son is an 08, really talented skater who has been doing town hockey the last couple of years. I feel like he's ready to make the jump to the E9 or Fed. Any suggestions on which teams to check out in Boston or North of town? Also, which is better, Fed or E9?
Thanks so much. Love this board and all the feedback you provide.
Ehf is much better than the e9. Especially at the 08 level. The last place elite team in the fed could beat the first place team in the e9. No camparison. If you are looking for a team like a town team then go with the e9.
Didn’t VJW just lose to Top Gun this weekend? Top Gun is 2nd to last in the fed. Haha
It’s eveeyehere that they lost 9-2 to Top Gun
08 VJW played I the 07 level. Got beat by TG
08 vjw elite played in the Rosato tournament in the 07 division. 08 vjw beat 08 tg elite 7-1. They lost to the tg 07t1 team. Had they played in the 08 division they would have cleaned up with no challenge. They played against my 07 in another tournament after Thanksgiving and did well. I think they often play in the 07 t1 division
So they still lost to 07 tier 1 teams? I thought they were suppose to be the cream of the crop of the e9. Again, e9 is like the Valley
08’ Vjw got smoked by jr eagles and mid fairfield

The only ones who think there is a glaring differ nice between the EHF and E9 are the crazy EHF Tier 1 Parent’s that actually think their kid is pretty good. You know the ones. Some of you saw them this week you know the Parents screaming after a goal like their kid just won Olympic Gold in a Tier 1 tourney against white and town teams They don’t know any better. Think their kid is playing good hockey because it is EHF and they have never seen any other hockey.
The propoganda machine runs so hard most people think that T1 black is high level Hockey until they see it and think that T1 white is above town until they see it !
Go take a peek at some rinks and decide for yourself. Or talk with the parent of an actual top tier player. They will be honest. The only ones who can’t be honest are the T1 or low level elite team parents
Lol you people are pathetic. Don’t ever change Dboard!
The EHF Elite is hands down the best league in New England for youth hockey. The E9 is next but there is a massive talent drop off. Every year at every age group the E9 will have a team or two that could compete in the FED, but that's it.
You will also see the best players on those teams migrate to the FED at years end. There is an annual migration of talent that takes place from the E9 to the FED that is undeniable. Check back in March for more details.
January 1st is that start of 2 months of deceit and treachery. People already calling and talking. Let the games begin!!!
08s are stacked!!!
