E9, EHF/USPHL any level, PHL Premier/Elite. They have all become status symbols for parents to feel good about themselves. It's just like why BMW makes so many different models of their cars. So the guy driving a 3 series can think he's just as good as a guy driving an 8. You can't pimp your kid out in town warm up gear without the fear of judgement from the other hockey parents. So you pay an extra $2K to get the better looking warm ups.
White and Silver and BHL National equal one word.....Dog **** of all Dog ****.....save your money and play local house its just as good. PHL and BHL National have some decent teams at the top of their standings that compete with low level E9 and EHF tier 1 black teams. At least in the age groups my kids play in.
