Thanks helpfulhank, that was about as useful as the condom you had in your wallet since high school
It would be helpful if they named locations. Seeing as Mass doesn't allow tournaments my guess is everyone will be at Hooksett or Exeter. Or every age group will be at a different location. I hope to god my benders team doesn't get stuck in Springfield.
I agree knowing locations sooner than later would be very helpful given the circumstances.
Well if they do it in Mass the Rhode Island teams are SOL. But I would guess they have to send each age group to a different rink/area to get around the tournament rules.
Just give the E9 Title to the 08 Saints.... You want the title come to RI.
If they can't win it, they will buy it.
Not to far fetched, Saints could win 08 E9 with a little effort. BA lost two of their best players to the EHF. They have 1 blue chipper left at forward and one blue chipper on D ,Who happens to be a young lady.
The Exeter team saw the best goalie in the league move to the Fed. Everyone else is a rainbow team who makes a little headway til the Fed comes knocking and Pilages them. Story of the E9.
Warrior teams have gone way down hill compared to teams years ago.
For fear of piling on a 12 YO I saw a crew of E9 kids on a tourney team mid July.Terrific skaters in warm ups but once the puck dropped it was all down hill. No hustle, couldn't send or catch a pass, gave up on plays. Not saying it cant be coach corrected but it might be a product of their non competitive environment.
I am a Fed Daddio but find it hard to believe, as some of my Daddy buddies believe, that there isnt 2 kids in the E9/08 that could crack a top 5 team or else they would be gone.
