The preds U15 are definitely a AAA team after beating esmark 4-1 today 

I think whome87 needs to come back here and apologize to the entire Preds U15 team.  His OP was pretty scathing to say the least.

I have said this before check out the Mighigan Hockey by-laws.  Organizations that have AAA teams are limited and must have a AAA team at all levels not just one team.  This promotes strong organizations and the formation of individual team clusters that we have in Pittsburgh.  It also drives the quality coaches to those organizations.  Until it is restricted we will still have AA players playing AAA hockey because the parents  think the kid is that good and there is a coach waiting to take that $$$$.

The Predators and i believe Esmark have teams at every age the only one that does not is the Mt.Lebanon Hornets. So where does that put any lebanon as a team.

Hmm... you are not wrong here.  The group had one AA season (5 wins) and played A major for years before that.  So it's pretty astonishing how they are now AAA.

Oh gee here come the 04 predator parents with their chests pumped out. 

 

Let me enlighten you guys on a few things. 

 

1) it was not a invitational. It’s was the harbor center tournament hosted by the junior sabers. Anyone can pay the money to get in. All the top U15 teams were in Chicago, the tier 1 elite invitational or the north east showcase. The harbor center tournament is a fund raiser for the sabers. It’s never been high end. It’s filled with 80% buffalo teams. Do you think ppe would have a tournament and let icemen, esmark, Lebo and predators  in it ? Come on. 

 

2) you beat Amherst who is traditionally  weak at every age group. You tied the buffalo red raiders. This team was a bad AA team last year and you beat esmark who is now proven to have a crap 04 team. It took them 3 years to finally field that mess.  1-2-1 in pool play with a consolation win vs a local team. Yep you guys are world beaters. 

 

3) all the stats are online. I’ll give the goalie dad credit early. It’s working out for him. Seeing lots of shots. Congratulate the same 3 kids that scored all the points for your team. 

 

Come back with your argument when you beat someone that will be ranked above 75.

the U15 (2004) “AAA” pgh predators! What a train wreck! This team would be hard pressed to play with a pw AA team. Players that can’t skate, can’t shot, can’t pass & I’m talking about every kid on the ice! The speed was also extremely slow. 

 

I'm just curious to know if you stand by the statement above?  Obviously they are not the worst team in AAA. Your exact words "every kid on the ice!"  When they beat a team in the top 100 will you then apologize to these kids?  Or will you justify your pathetic rant some other way?   I have absolutely no ties to the Predators other than getting annoyed by you bashing them.  Why are you so bitter toward them?  Not that they care but what would they have to do to make you happy?

He sure does know a lot about 04 AAA hockey for not having a kid that’s an 04
