And I am not even putting GR 2 in bottom 6 teams. Although they will have trouble facing 07s they might not be necessarily "killed".  But do not let 2-0 vs GSE 2 fool you - I saw 2nd period of that game and GSE 2 were all over them, they even got a goal disallowed for nothing + GR 2 goalie was super lucky that evening. My guess, GSE 2 would beat them 9 out 10 times. Other than that they did not face tough competitors.
In recent SCAHA pre-season they lost to ID1 0-4.
And that is far far from the worst teams in announced AA division.

I dont think GR2 is the problem. Ice Dogs and GSE2 are quality teams. They will do fine. Maybe a middle of the pack team, which is impressive for a group of 09s. The problem is the bottom 5 or so. Cut off the teams that arent competitive with the top teams and make multiple flights for PWA.

There is a way to factually validate or discard some of these points of view....for instance “Afirst” could share the club his son belongs to so we can track wether or not they will finish the season as a top 4 team and ahead of “Lesser teams” like ID2 and GR2


I think it would add value to the conversations and provide a tool to ratify some of the very strong povs.  Thoughts ?

No.  I might not agree with some positions he takes and I might not even agree with some positions I take...

I feel its better to NOT mention what team your "Little Gretzky" on.    CAHA/SCAHA family inner circle can be very small at times and kids can end up on the same team the next year?   Keep the banter up!   The Calhockey site is more entertaining than following the JERK in the White House!

I agree. I was being slightly sarcastic, since BrewGooder just rolled into town and was requesting identities, then throwing out the "lesser team" banter.

I have no problem but looks like it's not in the site's policy.


So how about I say this: teams that should be slaughtering "lesser teams" (and ID2 and GR2 are actually more like middle of the pack, so should not be bottom 6) are in alphabetical order:
Bears, Ducks 1, ID 1, Kings 1, Flyers
So 20% chance to guess that right...

Alfirst, I agree with your 4 top picks but the Flyers are Jekyll & Hyde team with talent.

Top five in alphabetical order should be Bears, Ducks 1, GSE 2, ID 1, Kings 1


Agree Flyers have talent but play inconsistent to list them in top for now.

Still should have no problem with Sharks, Kings 2, OC, Mariners and "alikes".


Oh, and I forgot to add GSE 2 to the top team list - they should beat up above mentioned by me teams pretty good too.


That's my only point - why those 6 teams have to play Sharks of the worlds (and that will be 5-6 games for each of them, maybe 8 - adding GR 1, Reign 1 into that mix) while during Jamboree it was clear who's who.
Flights would have cleared that problem.


Yet, people here are asking my identity hiding theirs - I would just assume they are from those bottom teams and they are ready to suffer 0-5,6,7,10 score for no reason and no benefit for anyone.


Like in school you take a math test and if you are over certain score you as 7th grader go with 8th grader guys for that class.


That's all I wanted for our team and my son. Too many games for nothing is too big price to pay. And stat wise I am not concerned (getting those extra points vs bottom teams), and have no "little Gretzky" drama - just want right development for my money. Is it too much to ask?

Ok I will do it Lord_of_the_rink... ;)


.@ronswanson1 my apologies for the post, I off course do not pretend to have the knowledge and experience about California youth hockey that you might have ....After all I did just rolled in and my kids only have 10 seasons of caha Tier 1 and Tier 2 hockey.
I did not want to ruffle any feathers ...what do I know, I just thought it would be fun and a way to validate POVs
I enjoy this site and their insightful conversations...I learn from people
Like Ronswanson1 and I get entertained. I will go back to obscurity and just read as I have the crazy believe that the development of my kids stem from team practice, stick times, skate lessons (when possible and feasible) and playing the games to the best of their abilities no matter the opponent.  But perhaps I’ve had it all wrong all these years and it’s actually the opponent what drives my kids development.

According to this board, player development happens in games.  I cannot believe you did not know that :)
