1. You can't forecast a draft in 4 years based on 12 year olds' performance today. Puberty and hitting will change everything
2. Just because you play in the G doesn't mean anything. Lots of kids drafted outside the G. Lots of kids drafted from the G that grew up elsewhere
3. All this spring hockey is a waste of your money unless your kid loves it and is having fun. More isn't always better
4. This NY tournament is just another AA level cash grab by PHD
5. The D needs to be dropped from PHD. They don't develop anyone. NO ONE. They just collect cash from suckers


Salient points here.


PHD defense are terrible, but they also carry a few forwards that are small and weak, with dads that pay and threaten. PHD will be second rate until the old “brick” guard retires.

8-1, 7-2, 9-1, 10-0; if he or any other dad was going to be upset about anything it would have to be the fact that they were recruited by PH to play in a PH run tournament where the rest of the teams (or at least the the teams they are playing in the round robin) are clearly not competitive with them. It makes for a colossal waste of time and money (although I strongly suspect the PH team is not paying full freight if anything).

The top kids are the ones in the gym strengthening themselves up for this season and working on their skills. Not attending watered down tournaments to make themselves feel good lighting the lamp over the head of AA and A players.

So, they won game five 9-2.

That means a quarter final game tomorrow against a team they will be 7+goal favourites against, then a semi final against a team they will probably be 5+ goal favourites against, to get to a final game that, maybe, will be competitive.

Fun? I guess some people find that kind of hockey weekend fun. Me? I would be furious at the organizers for misrepresenting the level of competition. I hope at least their goalie got a free ride; they probably could have won by even wider margins had they gone with 6 skaters and no goalie in all 5 games.

Not too sure about the gym comment, considering you should not be lifting weights until after puberty. If they are past puberty, then their challenge is more inline with "early maturation syndrome". Where coaches and parents confuse this with skill and talent and thus the player develops poor habits due to his size and strength advantage. Thus ,being cut when everyone else catches up in the maturation process with more skill.

Like the competing in alternative sports comment......it is the key to building athleticism.

Are the PHD parents impressed with dominating a truly AA tournament?

They were humbled in Italy. Say what you will, it was a real AAA tourney.

They were a second rate team in Montréal. They played 3 consolation games over the weekend after losing in the final 16 round. Weak D, selfish forwards.

Why do they stick with that program? It is barely AAA.

When will PHD realize that the best players these days are not the same ones as 3 years ago? There are a couple that have held their own, but so many are long past their best before date.

Imagine spending a beautiful hot summer weekend in rinks in Connecticut playing for a barely AAA team and destroying AA teams.

Is everyone crazy?

What am I missing?

Lmao. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Take your 12 year old to the gym.

It would not be a PH tournament if they didn't stop posting scores during the playoff round......seeing as how they played a team in the final that they beat 8-2 in the round robin I guess it is not too surprising that they might try to hide how mismatched their own team was against the field.

Who says a kid shouldn’t lift weights until after puberty?

Everyone with a brain knows that kids should not lift weights until muscles are fully developed.

Sure, but there is are still plenty of benefits of regularly going to the gym that does not involve lifting weights.

MH got mvp and he lifts weights. Just saying.
And he was busy knocking down anyone that got in his way. Maybe your kids should.

hmmm do you you even know what they do in the gym? It does not mean only lifting weights. Would you have a problem with your kid climbing a tree, doing the monkey bars, jumping off something more than half his height? Heck you expect your kid to skate full speed on thin blades into corner with a solid wall, on ice, while another kid is doing the same, and expect him to battle for a puck, but heaven forbid he train his body to be able to do this and withstand the contact, falls, and demands on his body.

The human brain doesn't stop developing well into your 20's, should you then limit the school work, so it's easier.

What about stretching and mobility work?

It used to be that kids could climb a thick rope up to the ceiling of a two storey gym, now you have kids who can't even begin to start a chin up. Kids can barely do push ups, let alone do them properly.

You will send your kids to power skating lessons and edgwork lessons, do private instruction to get your kids faster, but have you ever considered the effects that this has on their tendons and ligaments. This is like working to make a car faster but not giving it brakes to measure up to the speed. This is going on all the time, yet these kids haven't developed in a balanced way. The gym and all the exercises that can be performed there, make sure a kid's body is balanced. Strenghtening the knees and it's ligaments by doing bilateral bounding and plyos work this.

I suggest you speak to a qualified trainer and see what is out there and what they do.

Many kids can't do a single pull up, but you would have no problem with them trying. So if he went to a gym to use a pull down machine starting with half his bodyweight so that he can build up the strength to do bodyweight pull ups, would you have a problem with that?

Kids are far more sedentary than they were before and in a perfect world all their leisure time would be outside playing or working. It's not. So we compensate with workouts.

Everyone knows that sitting on their fat ass playing video games is bad for you-worse than working out-yet this is probably what most of them spend the majority of their time on.

Everyone knows what food is bad for you-yet they eat it far to much.

Get with the times and look around you.

Top US AAA teams were at the tournament, Titans, Honeybaked, Jr Rangers, NY, etc.

But PH showed up with an even more stacked team with new players, not many GTHL on the team. Why was that necessary ?
