Re: Militia cup

Teams are listed under the "Boys" tab in the main menu. My kid is playing in it too. No idea what the rosters look like.

Thanks. Looks like the 2013 team has a pretty good line up.

Re: Militia cup

In all seriousness how good is this tournament typically?

It’s typically fine

Re: Militia cup

From my experience last year with a 2013 it was fun and well organized. Thayer is a good facility. Would I drive 2 hours to play...definitely not but if local it's a decent one. A lot of regular season teams getting in a tune up tourney before season starts.

That's exactly what it is, a tune up for full season teams. You'll still see the elite players sandbagging at every age group in this Tier 1 tournament. No one cares, nothing to see, except for the coaches to get a view of their rosters after a summer off.

Waste of a good summer weekend.

What else would you have done ?

Just curious. I could have stayed In my south shore beach town or gone to my parents on the cape. But we already did that a few other weekends so here we are.

You are a grown man with a family and your only option is to sandbag with your parents at their house down the cape? Go back to school, get a better job, buy your own vacation home. How old are you? Take your kids golfing for the weekend or off to a amusement park. Season starts right around the corner no reason at all to be in a rink this weekend....one of your last free weekends for some time.

why would i buy one when I have one I can use anytime and that one day will be mine? Unlike some, I am smart with my finances.

Re: Militia cup

Been a few years, but it wasn't terrible. Some summer teams use it as the end of the season stanley cup. Some club teams use it as a tune-up tourney. Some unloved *******s run some random rosters of kids out there, watch them get murdered, and pocket the cash. Thayer's rink is awesome though.

Re: Militia cup

What did you find awesome about Thayers rink ? I have been twice, also an alum and it was ok I thought. Nothing special.

Re: Militia cup

It's new, clean, ice is usually good. In comparison to a lot of rinks in the area its very nice.

If you are asking that question, it's likely the one in last place that doesn't get a win all weekend and has running clock to start the 3rd every game. Have fun!

Better question, which summer teams have the strongest re****tions?

Re: Militia cup

All the men must wear shorts past their knees at all times in the rink or you are denied entry

Shorts are a fashionable length. It’s the bellies that skew low.

He might’ve been wrong about the periods vs halves but he was right about everything else. I didn’t want to believe it at first but dang.

Re: Militia cup

So sounds like this is yet another tournament that everyone on here is too good for ?

What year were you watching? I can't imagine you watched every game from every year...that's quite a statement.
At the '13/'14 level there are some very good players.

That was a joke. I thought you were the guy who gets upset about the fact most hockey players won’t play beyond high school. Yes there were many good players. Terrible hockey for the most part being summer and all.
