Maybe the great news is simply that the River Rats are a well run organization that is interested in recruiting and developing players in the Attleboro area.... unlike a previous poster who defended the 95 Giants by saying that their program sucks because they only had hockey misfits to draw from. Maybe this organization will bring solid skills and coaching to develop the best players possible! That alone would be good news for all involved!
What league will they play in?
Does the rat have crazy weird hair?
They are trying to get in PHL, no players, no coaches. Yup, they are taking over! If Lovell leaves NESV shuts down. Period. End of story. Yup. Taking ovahh! Sorry you Caps bender got cut!
Who does the Rats skills??? Why are they so good?.
Rats are prep school kids, don’t even normally practice let alone skills. My kid played there and I know owner well. Not his program. I think he agreed to let them use the name, that’s all. Probably paid him for use of name if they could find a league to play in. Rats and EHF hate each other so no go there. Lovell ain’t letting them encroach on their turf. Rats used to have their crappy 2nd teams in that Mass Premier League so maybe that is an option. No chance they field teams for that league though. It’s really bad.
Was laughing reading this. All myth. There is no new program starting up at NESV. Giant, Generals, North Attelboro own all the ice there and have contracts in place. No room for a full program, let alone a program that is owned by someone else, has no desire to have youth teams and skates out of a different geographic region. Please stop with the rumors.
Per the rink this is now not happening
So where are all the stinkin rats???
What happened Lovell hater? Your telling us no rats next year and this was all made up???
Judging by 03s schedule this year, there's a precedent. Are you saying E9 is kicking them out?
And what's the buzz on 04s moving to next year's Rats? Are they looking good?
is this RR u14 team next year full season or half?
Full with all good players bailing for their prep team in Nov. Canton, not NESV. No such deal for arats. Another Dboard myth.
But I thought the guys that run the rink needed places for their kids to play???
So when are the Rats tryouts and when will NESV be announcing the arrival of the Rats and departure of Giants? Bahaha
