Re: Platinum Parity

Anon
How many teams from last seasons platinum division got knocked out this past weekend? The season standings are down so it is hard to quickly tell from the schedule. Any major surprises or the same collection of teams again this year?
2010 Flames almost got knocked out. Lucky to have an alternate or two playing in parity to keep them in it.

Re: Platinum Parity

Saw there schedule, looked fair. Providence upset?

Re: Platinum Parity

"their" schedule. How does a team trying to jump 2 divisions from lower gold to platinum draw 2 teams that weren't in platinum last year?

Because there were 6 teams (roughly 1/3) who weren’t in platinum last year

Re: Platinum Parity

Looks like those teams who weren't in 2011 Platinum last year must have done well enough against those that were. And why PHC thinks that they have 3 teams that can (or should) compete in one division is ridiculous...

Re: Platinum Parity

I can tell you’re not educated. So here goes.. JUMP 2 divisions? Shouldn’t have been in lower to begin with. Covid/no parity. Be better. Stop hating on children.

The Manchester Flames and Bulldogs got knocked out platinum after 3-4 year run in that division.

Re: Platinum Parity

It appears the EHF algorithm is not working properly for the win % as it fails to compute a tie game. Am I missing something with this?

A record of 2-1-1 is being logged as .500 when in fact it is .625. This would change the rankings in most divisions.

Re: Platinum Parity

The +/- is factored into the % which is then how they rank the teams.

Exactly how do you factor a +/- into a %? Is this part of the “new” math the kid are learning?

I think the poster was messing with you.

Yes, you’re missing the fact that they don’t care as long as your card isn’t declined every month. They are just lazy and don’t take the extra step needed to do it properly because it doesn’t matter to them other than the $$$.

Re: Platinum Parity

We didn't play them but they were the talk this weekend for 2011's...what I saw looks like they can compete with some great players and solid bench. Just saying it wasn't expected.

They had great players and a solid bench hahahhaaha.

Re: Platinum Parity

Just checked schedules. Looks to me that they actually had one of the tougher schedules with exception of Monarchs. Terriers schedule looked like much more of a joke. Easy 4-0.

I’m sorry you’re losing your mind over this. deep breaths

Re: Platinum Parity

Boch Blazers will be bottom of barrel at Plat. they belong in the upper gold where they would be 3rd or 4th best team.

Sounds like the blazers have been haunting your dreams. Better luck next year.

Re: Platinum Parity

Great matchups. Very even, competitive teams. Shame some people lose sleep over 10 year old hockey. Jealousy.. the sincerest form of flattery.

Re: Platinum Parity

Maybe the Boch win against PHC was a fluke, but it's not like they tied SSK and BJE 0-0. Seems like some Dad's in the team gear are upset that an org like Boch might actually have more talent than them...uh oh.

Re: Platinum Parity

so let me get this straight, isn't Platinum a level below Elite? If so, it's town hockey people, nothing more, nothing less.

Re: Platinum Parity

You have no clue what you are talking about.

Re: Platinum Parity

All this squirt hockey chatter is adorable. Little dusters taking their first strides in their journey to the Show.

Re: Platinum Parity

Agreed. The kids are just starting to grow some fuzz. Big changes by U14. Enjoy the ride. At least half won’t be playing in 5 years.

As long as the town isn’t RI. You should try getting a hobby besides blowing veins in your special head over youth hockey.

Isn’t your meatloaf ready? Take this energy and help your mom cook tonight. Clean the basement where you sleep too.

Haha. We were a very average platinum team last season. Played against 3 town teams that were supposed to be very good “A” MA town teams. Outscored them 32-3 and caught hell by two of the coaches for “running it up”.

Tried to stick me with the cost of the TruCoat I never asked for. I hope the little b*stards lose every game.

Re: Platinum Parity

08's are painful to watch. Wish my kid played B Ball.

Re: Platinum Parity

Any team flags?

Re: Platinum Parity

My kids team made platinum. Some thoroughbred moms walking around this weekend. Not gonna lie, I was looking to seeing all the single mom hairdressers at the gold parity but I’ll take the W.
