Not a bad club last year. I didn't mind our team playing there. Nice rink. Will the team make the American division again? On another post it said kids left for BA. I am curios with the Lighting team and maybe the Bandits kids are back on the Cape?Did they get stronger or weaker?
Unfortunately TA, in general, made a lot of promises they couldn’t keep. Parents were turned away by what was not delivered. What parents should notice is the the BHL and Fed are way better than the PHL when it comes to play. Yes, many kids went to the Lightning but once parents realize it is a crappy league with no competition, those kids will be one and done. Someone always has a problem with a league, level, etc so you can’t please everyone.
Did this team get better or worse from last season?
I heard they lost top player(s). Also, None of Bandits kids came back to the Cape. Most are at Advantage. I think TA will be weaker this year but we’ll see...
looks to be about the same as last year. one talented player left, a few players were cut, couple decent players added. my son had a pretty good experience last season. the coaches are guys you would want leading your kids and are good role models. as a parent, I'm getting exactly what I (and my son)
are looking for.
After top T1 Black team, who should be in Elite division, all T1 is the same. This has been debate a million times. BHL, PHL Fed or USPHL T1 are all similar, some good and some bad. Not from the Cape, but the price is very affordable. Smart parents who realize their kid isn't going to the NHL may want to save money and play for Lightning. Like you said, can't please everyone.
Then save yourself a thousand dollars and just play town instead of Lightning. Lot less travel in town and same skill level as PHL.
All Tier those T1 leagues are equivalent to Town A 10 years ago. Town A is the old B/C league minus some solid programs where kids also play T1 as well. Canton A teams are a perfect example. Had to laugh at the Mass. Hockey article about them in March. Saw the Squirt team play and they had about 3 White helmets, rest were all Bandits, terrier, huskies etc. Sorry that ain't a town team.
He’s out of the picture pretty much I think. drama has passed . Mediocre operation. Not much more to add even by cheerleaders
I don't they did that good this weekend
