Herb is a pushover. We had an off-ice altercation at one of our games this season. I got a one game suspension, my teammate got five games and the guy on the other team was supposed to be gone for the season. He ends up only getting six and on their team's game sheets he played before he was supposed to be eligible to return.

At the same time, teams like INC could be wayyy too good for T9 but they gonna get their asses kicked up in T8...its a no win situation. Some teams basically are threatening the league they will leave the league if they dont bump a certain team out. But again its a business and its better to lose one team than to lose two (this is the situation with the MTB).

As for the INC, funny thing was in exhibition and first half of the season , they were so so weak of a team.

I seriously doubt they would be worse than the worst team in tier 8. There isn't THAT big of a skill difference from 8 to 9.

Seriously, it's a no win situation for whoever is in 4th in tier 9. Our team doesn't have enough skilled guys to spread to keep them at bay and have strong offense. KBI has more size, which could work for them against this team.
Just sandbag the rest of the season to make sure you finish no higher than 5th.

I would think they would fair pretty well in div 8. But who from div 8 would move down to 9?

Finishing 4th or 5th would make no difference. Winning their first round would put them up against INC in the second round, assuming INC doesn't lose to Mad gorillas.

I was just looking through my team's schedule, and i noticed something.....

Herb's point is FALSE. Prior to re-tiering, the INC team's first 3 wins were 7-1, 5-2, 11-3.


How does that justify a business decision based on winning by only a few goals? Like really...i don't give a shit about this division, and as a matter of fact, the league. I'm playing as a part timer because im happy to be playing hockey after injury, and just to check the league out. Regardless, i will always be a fan of good quality hockey, whether its in the highest or lowest tiers, and frankly, nothing is impressing me.

Since there's 10 teams in tier 9 the top 4 teams will play each other in the playoffs and the bottom 6 teams will play each other in a separate playoffs. Therefore the team that finishes in 4th will have to play the 3 best teams in the division, while finishing 5th will allow you to play against the bottom teams in the tier. At least this is how i've been told the playoffs will work.

Not too sure about Div 9, but that was how they planned on setting up Div 1-2.

Top 4 teams battle for Div 1 superseries and the bottom 6 battle for Div 2.

Actually, that is a very good question.

*** Edit***

Looks like F3 is correct. The top 4 teams are going to play in a Memorial cup style tournament to fight for the championship.

I'm sure KBI has the same idea as us too. No one really wants to be 4th right now.

If anyone is curious, here is the playoff schedule for this summer.

http://www.ice604.com/playoffs_schedule.htm

Personally, I LOVE the 2 week break between games 2 and 3 for the top 4 teams in div 9.

Nice, what team are you gonna be on? Your team will start Div10 for tiering and then you will be placed in the appropiate div. Last yr we got dropped to the lowest Div15(i think) sucked and then pulled it together going into the playoffs and went all the way. I think we may go up 1 div this yr.

It's ok. It won't compare to ASHL but the level of play is decent. It is more physical than ice604, that's for sure.

Not the greatest league but they offer a full season. With the Olympics coming into town, a few leagues in Vancouver have cut their seasons in half.

I did, after the game. I told him he should be on TV, and he gives me a pat on the back.
