Re: JWK

And the 05 Finals of NS vs. Spartans was cancelled at 215 today because NESV is a joke.

Re: JWK

Why did they cancel this game?

Re: JWK

E9 represented well in '07 elite division...Patriots in semis, Warriors in finals.

Re: JWK

The sub 500. Bandits beat the Warriors in the finals (O7 E). So much for E9 parity

Re: JWK

Which islander team did the Assabet Patriots beat in the 06 elite final?

Re: JWK

If it was the Tier 1 Black team that’s 1st in the standings for 06 Black Division that would make them 0 and 5 against 5 E9 teams. “OUCH”

Re: JWK

At least they made the finals unlike your son's team.

Re: JWK

Your other vaunted E9 team finished 9th and the other chose to play in AAA division.

Junior Railers are a vaunted E9 team now? They are half a step away from being a BHL team. Kudos to Islanders Black for making it to the finals, but don't you think they were helped out immensely by their extremely soft round robin schedule? Of their four games, they only played one true tier 1 team (#62 Hockey Essentials). The other three tier 2 teams they beat only had one win between them (0-4, 0-4, 1-3) in round robin. Maybe if they played the Railers round robin opponents the Islanders would have finished 9th...

Re: JWK

Railers lost to Jr. Devils 4-1. Islanders beat Jr. Devils 4-1...you're point is?

You got me there. Islanders black has also lost to the Knights, Seacoast and Assabet Valley this season, all teams it looks like the Railers have beaten. I’m confused, what is your point? Are you saying they didn’t get a cupcake round robin schedule?

Re: JWK

The point is is that they beat the teams on their schedule...all but one was ranked higher than them in tier 2 rankings and beat 3 middle tier 1 teams along the way.

Re: JWK

It is odd they have struggled against E9 and EHF elite teams but have an 8-2 record against tier 1 teams outside of NE.

On this Dboard we like to bash each other's leagues and teams. But truth is- our Mass teams (as watered down as they may be) are still better than most nationally ranked teams. Islanders Black is a prefect example, they are winless against Mass Elite Teams 0-5, but versus out of state true T1 teams they are 8-2.

Mass hockey is good.

Re: JWK

The best part of tournament was playing teams from 6 different states...not every team got so lucky.

We can agree on that....once again kudos to them

Re: JWK

So let me understand genius....the current 5th place EHF team (out of 10 teams) beat the current 3rd place E9 team (out of 8 teams) by a goal in the final...your point is???

Speaking of parity...genius...what does it say about the EHF if the 5th place team is sub-500? Look at teams 5 through 10...real parity...huh, Ed?
