Re: EHF/USPHL marketing machine

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.

You could not be more wrong. Not every kid aspires to play in the NHL. Some just like to have fun and play hockey. Town hockey is very rarely fun as it is an unorganized disaster of random schedules and absentee teammates. If you can afford the better quality league then go for it, just don't do it with the dream of the NHL.

These ignorant comments are no different than saying public school and private school offer the same level of education. You get what you pay for.

Re: EHF/USPHL marketing machine

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.

This post is the biggest pile of dog **** I've ever seen on this board. You obviously have zero clue what you are talking about.
