So now that tryouts are over, what did the gravitational pull in Raynham haul in? Is there any team assembled over there that will be able to compete against the upper echelon of the E9? I truly doubt it. Advantage, Patriots, Spartans and Warriors will still eat them for dinner. You start with garbage you end up with garbage.
Someone just got a bad email / call.
Knights, Walpole Express, Crimson.......birds of a feather.
They are all a places for kids to play "club hockey" for parents who don't want the town hockey stigma.
Too many better options in an already saturated area.
They offered my bender a spot I had never even heard of them.
I don't think you're missing anything.
Looks like the Knights are having a free evaluation skate to fill out their second teams this week...Most of the second teams will end up in the national division
Love me some BHL hockey.
Gotta trust the process with Lovell hockey.
If you are chasing good teams in good leagues or want to do the top tourneys at the younger levels then it’s not for you.
If you are looking for a kid to develop and play at a high level later you have to trust their process.
I have seen many a kid who have stuck with the knights and Lovell’s from a young age who have developed into very good players and surpassed many of their peers.
If the latter is your goal then I don’t think their is a better option in that geographical area.
Just another organization that calls themselves “Elite” and plays in the BHL , which couldn’t be any further from elite hockey.
These teams are full of kids that have to tape their ankles
