Re: Exposure joke

Nobody is bashing Lovell and their teams or program. It just gets old listening to ba parents talk about development and how good they are at it when the people have mite players. Mite players do not suck and that is not what was said. Ba people come on here and bash the terriers, breakers, bandits and kings regularly. I did not see anyone bash kids or the 2014 advantage team. They are a very good well coached team. The crazy parents ( or parent) are the ones getting bashed.

'love that you think you know so much about development and other programs and your kid is a mite. The 09 advantage team was just like the 2011 and these younger teams . What happened to that development? They are the same kids. Mite hockey is not real hockey. Because they played up last year has nothing to do with why they can’t play up. You can’t play in a squirt division when you are a mite. How is the 2011 team doing playing up?'

I dunno, but this seems like a direct hit at lovell.

Also what BA people bash the terriers, breakers, bandits and kings regularly? I have seen people asking what is going on with the bandits program because they're not good but why would it be assumed those are BA people asking? I had never heard of the bandits until this year. I've been lurking on this forum a while and I see a LOT of negativity towards Lovell/BA. There was a thread on here recently where someone said, what happened to BA, they used to be good, now they're not. There was also a thread about how the icemen now suck. So do some research on here....making comments like that are direct hits against the kids, not the parents.

Re: Exposure joke

Someone felt bitter enough to start a thread here to say the whole tournament sucked...for them.

Is this the same advantage mom that keeps posting about how good they are??? I love that you think you know so much about development and other programs and your kid is a mite.

Because they played up last year has nothing to do with why they can’t play up. You can’t play in a squirt division when you are a mite. How is the 2011 team doing playing up? Some of these other programs should hire you for player development since you know so much.😂😂😂
Did you let Marty hughes and his 2014 islanders know that they ain't playin real hockey yet? I guess all these good 2014 players will just be gone in a few years. Yeah that's how it works.

Re: Exposure joke

Why would it bother you if someone thinks advantage is a great program ? There are many different programs that get discussed on here. If anything I see the eagles get mentioned over and over again here. I have no issue with the eagles at all, I know good people on this teams but it's not the only team in MA and not everyone lives near there.

IHC 2014 played BA three times last season. They won all three games. Now they have one kid from BA, plus brought in another good player for this tournament and they still lost to BA and it wasn’t a close game. The sample size is small, but isn’t it a sign that BA develops mite players better? Looks like it.

the only reason IHC got that BA player was because the family moved to that area. The commute to the south shore would have been too much.

Who cares why that former BA player changed teams. The point is that BA develops mites better than many other orgs out there. The ihc example just shows it clearly. It’s not lowly bandits or breakers, it’s a top fed team at their age, and BA is still better. They must be doing something right.

Re: Exposure joke

It's interesting too that the all mighty Eagles team lost to West end Ontario 4-3 then BA beat West End 6-3

But sure mite level doesn't mean anything especially when it's an E9 team that wins.

Re: Exposure joke

Eagles weren’t that great last year in fed, but this year they’re becoming a real force with all the new additions. And they beat ihc and west end fair and square in earlier stage of this tournament. Mark my words, they’ll win Fed this year. But neither them nor ihc are better than BA.
I know, people say it’s mite hockey and so it doesn’t count, but if you’re poorly coached player who can’t skate or make good decisions with and without the puck at mite, I don’t think being on a team which doesn’t develop players helps. And most teams don’t develop players, sadly. Eagles only got better because they got stronger players from outside, and ihc did not show progress this tournament despite having two new good players on the roster.

Re: Exposure joke

Eagles did beat IHC in this tournament but the IHC beat the eagles 7-3 earlier in October. Eagles also had an alternate who was apparently really good. That's the tricky thing about having alternates...hard to know how the team would do without those extra people. Both IHC and Eagles are very good, no doubt...but it seems odd and shady to bring alternates to games and tourneys when they kids are 8. Top Gun did the same. What does that teach the kids as well? Oh, we have to bring in people who aren't even on our team to help us win unfairly?

Re: Exposure joke

Kudos to the BA for playing with their regular season team and winning it all in the 2014 division. It sounds like quite a few EHF teams bolstered their lineups. But to be fair, are we sure that Quebec Brick, V-Hockey and others are actually regular season teams? Tough argument, but once again, congrats to the Advantage!

Re: Exposure joke

I've definitely heard complaints on here and in other places of teams brining in kids not on rosters. It doesn't seem right. Why coaches feel the need to do this with teams of 8 year olds is crazy. Crazy parents and coaches.

Re: Exposure joke

To be fair, ihc had one alternate and he’s played a few fed games too, so looks like he is a legit alternate. Unlike Top Gun and Eagles, it looks like they brought players in for this tournament specifically. Did not help TG at all. They were top 3 in fed last year, but this season wheels have fallen off.

Re: Exposure joke

When's the rematch when more then half of IHC isn't sick?

Re: Exposure joke

Were they sick?

Re: Exposure joke

IHC had a player who was sick but he still played. It's very possible they had a bad weekend. They are a good team.

ihc has 6 or 7 players from first and second jr bruins teams on the roster, it’s a shame they did so poorly and now we’re talking who was sick on that team.

BA has 4 players on national elite.

Again IHC is very good. No one is saying they're not.

2014 National elite is 1/3 BA and 1/3 IHC. Both HCs just know how to develop talent.

Re: Exposure joke

How long until the best BA players leave and go to the Eagles or Terriers to play in the Fed? 1/2/3 years?

ha the terriers. What a joke.

Re: Exposure joke

OOh the fed elite. They all can't wait to play in the fed elite. Joke. Look at the breakers and bandits 2014 fed elite. Terriers have lost 8 games. Top gun has lost half their games. The fed elite is dominated by 2 or 3 teams.

Re: Exposure joke

here they come...the fed parents.

Re: Exposure joke

Man, the 14 parents' are officially worse than the 08 parents.

Yeah but the 08s are stacked…

In all seriousness, not one 2014 coach has developed any talent whatsoever. When they take a hit, when they have hair on their junk…that’s when you will see what coaches developed talent.

Slow your roll. They’re 8.

wow you sound pretty confident in this.

I know a few of these stacked 08's you are talking about and they were very good when they were 8.

Re: Exposure joke

I don't think anyone is saying kids are mainly developed by a coach they had when they were 8. But you're kidding yourself if you think hockey development doesn't get real until puberty. A coach can certainly spot talent in a kid when they're 7 or 8 and start grooming them.

Re: Exposure joke

Ask any NHL player or D1 player when they started playing hockey. The answer won't be when they were 13 or 14. There's no way any development that happens before age 14 is moot. Keep telling yourselves whatever it takes to feel better though.

there's also 2 or 3 Eagles on the team, 2 kings, and a few people not from MA.

Re: Exposure joke

I hope there were extra huggies passed out after the games. You people all need to get lives.

Re: Exposure joke

Doesn't seem like exposure is giving much attention to advantage at all for winning. They're showing the same clips of losing teams it seems. What's up with that?

Re: Exposure joke

2011 islanders lost to a Dallas team in a shootout in the semis . Dallas team won , that was the top division.
Also , you people are hilarious your arguing about 7 year olds, there’s a reason all the best players are in the ehf, the advantage are a good team (2011) and I’m sure a awesome program, but the fact people on here actually try to argue that e9 is better than the ehf is a riot.

Re: Exposure joke

I would agree that EHF overall has stronger teams than the E9. No one said they didn't, but there are some bad teams and average players in the EHF also. The point is that BA/Lovell has some teams that are better than some of the teams in the EHF.

To say all of the best players play in the EHF is quite a statement. Just another butthurt boomer dad and another example of an EHF parent getting all nervous that the EHF isn't that great. It's the teams people not the leagues

Re: Exposure joke

Lovell is kind of in a league of their own. Will be interesting to see what happens over the next few years.
