JD1 beat GSE1 2:1 in a sloppy game


GSE2 tied Bears 4:4

Some interesting scores already.  Cant say that I'm too surprised by what I've seen.  Maybe GSE is stronger than we all thought?  I know GSE1 goalie is outstanding.  Was he a factor today?  Did he play against GSE2 last night?  Lots of variables with the GSE squads.  Kings beating Valencia 5-2 was predictable.  ID1 winning also predictable.  Anything I'm missing?

How do you define "well"?  No offense to anyone, but I'm not sure Kings 1 played anyone other than Valencia.  From what I saw on the evaluation weekend (and further validated this weekend) was that the Kings only played bottom third teams with Valenica somewhere in the middle.  "Undefeated" is great and all, but we can all agree some of these teams are going to struggle.  In my opinion it might be a tad early to start beating the greatness drum...


That said, based on conversations I've had with people in NorCal and SoCal all weekend, here are my picks:


1. Ducks1
2. GSE2
3. ID1
4. GSE1
5. Goldrush2
6. ID2
7. Kings1
8. Valencia
9. Bears
10. Heat


The most interesting thing I heard was regarding GSE2.  Apparently, they've got a stud player that can take over a game.  From what I was told, their game today versus Ducks1 was a battle. They might be one to watch.

Kings 1 have already beat ID 1 and ID 2 both by 3 goals and tied GSE 2.  7th is an interesting choice based on the games they have played.

Kings1 went 4-0 out in Riverside and ther are two ID2 listed in this AP top 10 poll. ID2 also beat GR2 today so not sure why they would be behind them

Kings1 is easy to answer.  They play like a "squirt" team.  All individual play, no teamwork, never looking to pass.  At this level you have to play team hockey. 


I'm basing my rankings off of results this weekend and the teams I've seen live.  I am not taking into account the evaluation weekend games.  Two period running games are no basis for deciding a game.  But, much like CAHA, I'm evaluating teams on HOW they play hockey. Individual play gets you nowhere here.


If you look at the MHR, the only team to score more than three goals on Ducks1 is GSE2 (who scored 6!!).  Based on what parents told me, GSE2 is the toughest team the Ducks have faced outside of AAA teams. Some GSE1 parents also told me they felt "2" was a better squad than "1".  I stand by my rankings and should be proven right at the next CAHA weekend.  This also goes for GR2.  Though young, they play a good brand of hockey.  They are going to sneak up on people and should stay Top 5.

I heard that GR2 actually lost to ID2.  CAHA has it reversed.  Is this true?

Wondering if said stud player played against Ducks?   I believe that player was ejected during Bears game. (Game prior to Ducks)


CAHA shows that player only played in 2 out of 3 games last weekend.  Perhaps he had a soccer game or was there a suspension?

I checked around.  Stud player was the one ejected from Bears game and did play against the Ducks.  From what people said, kid can take over a game and was dangerous every time he touched the puck.

For all those who commented on Kings1 did well going 4-0 at the Riverside CAHA weekend.   "Nothing like splitting hairs"  I didn't say GREAT!   Yes, they played 1 decent team & 3 soft teams.    Don't forget if you don't show up for the game?   Every dog has its day!
