Can someone explain how GSE knows they have a AAA club before CAHA has even announced their AAA teams for next season? 



Per GSE's website CAHA Board approved it.

Also there are deadlines to applying. Once must put together a roster that they see possible and Caha evaluates if they would be a competitive team. It does NOT mean they have chosen a team or if those players have decided to join that team.

Interesting how these things are picked. If your not in the big 3 clubs or sit on the CAHA board good luck.


I see Titans lost both their 16 AAA and 18AAA even though their 18's were better then Sharkss 18's.


sorry but this is why kids need to leave CA.


Nice work CAHA

I see 2 teams from Nor Cal in 14 AAA - GSE & Jr. Sharks. It will be interesting to see if both end up having a team and how competitive they will be.

Did anyone even notice the GSE kids out there at CAHA selects this weekend?  They had one good "D" man and the rest is average at best.They had a one solid "D" man and the rest are average at best.

You can see from this weekend that the AA or lower players are trying to dangle which doesn't work on AAA level.   Something to be said that the game itself is a teacher.......

You must have been at a different camp from me.  Most of the heads-down dangling I saw was by the 04 AAA “pedigrees,” who tended to play more like PeeWees than the AAs do.  I saw plenty of AAs laying AAA
pedigrees flat on their arses — more than the other way around.  One shortcoming of the AAA birth year system is that the bantam minors spend so much of the year playing against kids their own age, who aren’t used to checking and often don’t even like to be touched, while the AAs spent this year playing mostly against bigger, stronger, older players and often transitioning to the bantam game faster as a result.

Regarding GSE, I don’t have a dog in the fight, but most of their players looked pretty solid to me. It won’t surprise me at all if they turn out to be the #2 bantam major AAA team in California next year. I’ll bet you my rose colored glasses for yours. (The existing 04 AAA teams seem to have trouble beating local AA teams like GSE.)

An event where most of the players were trying to show off their individual talents, and not playing team hockey, is probably not a great vehicle to compare AA to AAA.

Strawman,


The CAHA list is out and the 1 "D" man is the lonely GSE selected.   I guess my glasses must be 20/20 and yours is shielded by the roses.  The 20+ evaluators have seen similar to what I see.    I don't have any grudge as I was simply making an observation. 


Lets have a beer or margarita at Lakewood next time. :)

How many of those evaluators are from the Kings or Ducks? Probably all of them except Curtis Brown from Sharks. Humm..
You are kidding yourself if you think the field is level for all players. Plus you had kids that didn't show up and were selected.

Brown was not evaluating the 04's. There are specific people tasked with evaluating each level, and I believe none of them are coaches of that level.
