BHL Elite is unstoppable
This stuff is pointless. League doesn't matter as much as the team and coach, and every age group is different. My son plays BHL American. He's played 3 platinum teams this year and is 2-1 against them. Last year's team went 0-4 against platinum teams. Ranking leagues is focusing on the wrong part of all this.
My kids BHL national team played an EHF platinum team and lost 5-3. That ehf team ultimately won their midget division. Why do people care so much about the league. Play where the team is competitive and developing. Once your kid hits midgets it doesn't matter other than getting them onto a decent varsity team in high school.
Looking forward to next year when the stacked 2008 kids hit high school. Mass should be a powerhouse of hockey.
What league you play should be based on where your kids friends are and proximity to your house. All the hardos that pay big $$ for Fed hockey will whine and cry that this is not true. They are silly. Living through their kids because they did nothing as a kid.
