But don't they say they play AAA in tournaments like PPE? 

Either you are baiting me, or you just don't know.  Either way, I'll answer, technically Tier 1 (AAA) doesn't start until Peewee.

Looked into this a bit.

Icemen
2017-18 final rank 33/112 (29th percentile)
2018-19 current rank 85/153 (56th percentile)

Vengeance
2017-18 final rank 87/112 (78th percentile)
2018-19 current rank 107/153 (70th percentile)

Predators
2017-18 final rank 95/112 (85th percentile)
2018-19 current rank 113/153 (74th percentile)

Icemen have slipped a bit.  Was kind of surprised by that.   Other two programs not exactly spotlight material but seem to have improved. 

You can say the vengeance have improved, but if run those same numbers over 4 or 5 years instead of 2 they aren’t looking so good...

Did they improve or are there simply more bad teams at the U16 level?   There were 112 teams at the U15 level last season.  Traditionally more teams join the AAA level at U16.  Teams that shouldn't be considered AAA.  

Slipped a bit?  #33 to #85?  That's a  huge drop for Icemen even without the reason I just mentioned above.

I really didn't know. Thanks for clarifying. 

 

More specifically, do the parents shelling out all that money know that too???????????????

They lost some good players to PPE but you also can't have the same coach with the same players for their whole careers. That's a major reason those players departed.

Wow.  That's sad.  Some people just can't let go.

Dorsey has lost all control of that organization. Tryouts were complete and utter joke!  Half of the players quit the U18 team and now it’s made up of mostly West Allegheny kids. A lot of them 2002‘s. I’ll be surprised if they win a fifth of their games. The U16 team is also very weak. The coach cut most of the good players. Why, who knows.  “Vengeance Coaches & Friends.”  The 2004 is now stealing a goalie from the renegades top bantam team. Didn’t want him at tryouts, but wants him now.  Biggest joke in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Vengeance.

... ENTIRE COMMENT STRUCK BY MODERATOR ...

All the trash-talking about the 16U team and yet they beat the Icemen top team 4-2 on Saturday. Maybe, just maybe they took the right players?

Or maybe the shots were almost tripled by iceman and they just couldn’t score on the vengeance.

Congratulations to the Vengeance U16 team.  Well coached or their goalie was really on his game that day?  Let’s just say, the mouse luckily gets the cheese from the pesky trap sometimes.  If played, the Icemen would beat the Vengeance handedly 8/10 times.  Question, was the 4th goal an empty net?  What were the SOG?  What were penalties like?  U16 is definitely improving. What about the U18? 10 from dead last.  Puts them at 100ish on Tier II.

I'm sure they took the right kids but defeating the 87th ranked Icemen isn't really something to hang your hat on.

Don't know any details of the game. Simply pointed out that they were being trashed all year and that maybe their roster decisions weren't horrible. 8/10, I doubt it. Maybe 6. Shots on goal can be misleading and the last time I checked they count EN goals. But hey, you sure are enjoying those sour grapes aren't you? Maybe I'll watch the game today on Livebarn and get all the answers.

Assumptions!  My kid isn’t on the team.  Be my guest and waste your time on LiveBarn.  I do however know most of the families of both teams.  Vengeance got lucky and Icemen made huge mistakes.  In the end, still don’t really care.
