What did you expect him to do ?? He had a team of tier 1 warrior kids sprinkled in with some FED elite kids. No one was beating the Blues. Team is stacked . No high end kids they just play as a team. Blues had the top 2 goalies in the tourny .. . You can win these types of tournaments with hot goaltending. Don’t need a bunch of “jonny bender’s”. As for the seeding” YES” it was changed. That was to try to get the 2 whalers teams threw. But they didn’t have a chance. Blues had that tournament locked up once the playoffs started .. but all in all great time For the kids. Most of them won’t ever step foot on the ice for the high school team .. so keep paying for these summer tournament parents. Lol. #moneygrab #no one is there scouting little Jonny
The goalies swapped games. Only let in 4 in round robin and 3 in the playoffs.. Defense was great so have to give them a lot of the credit. Only really challenged in one game. Tournament is so watered down. Parents are starting to realize it’s a money grab. Top kids in the area didn’t play in it. Seen maybe 10 FED top end kids all weekend. Save your money next year and hit the water parks!!!
Funny thing is that the Whalers almost lost to a full Black div team in the semifinals.
Love these goalie post...as a goalie parent, my son is a good goalie on okay teams....he is a superstar on an elite team....and yes he has played on both.
Goalies can't be anointed the next Cary Price until they are way past puberty!
08 division was Bruuuutalll. Besides the 09 team who were excellent and 4 or 5 kids from BHC the rest was blehhh
There were some good teams in there. BHC had MF 08, Eagles 08, and other EHF elite kids. Jr Blues had 4 LI Gulls kids, Providence kids and Maryland kids- they were very good. Northstar also had some very high level kids, just unfortunately had to play the top teams in the round robin. Definitely some lower level teams in the 14 team division, but I would say 4-5 very good teams in it.
Maybe the board should start talking about the 09's and not the 08's anymore
Just not true!
Hey knucklehead, po in nt was that that "team" is not playing in every tournament.
U14 final actually had some exciting players to watch that you will be hearing about down the road. Sorry you don’t know what kids who can really play look like at that age. Rest of the field not so much.
Did the rats play in tourney?
Keep paying for that
Was neither elite nor invitational ... this tourney has progressively gotten worse year after year, with this year being by far the worst. I didn’t even know that there were kids and young men that are that bad at hockey that will travel to play in a summer tourney.
Brutal is right. Wake up parents.
yes, there was another 08 event in NH which some were at, though it was not very big at all. But as we know, the whole 08 birth year is stacked so tons of elite kids at CCM
They should rename this tourney to CCM Invite Yourself. FYI there’s not enough elite players in the region to host that many matches however they had a few teams in each division that could compete above Tier 1. Most of those teams met each other during the weekend.
The 2012’s were great! Very good games.
CCM NOT-Elite Tournament
