Yes Bertrand tried out and was cut last year. He played high school for the french school ecole st anne which is a AA league as opposed to the 2 main AAA high school teams in Fredericton , Leo Hayes and FHS. The caliber of hockey at the high school AA level is no where near the AAA high school level. No idea if he is in the line up this weekend , he may play filling in while Leblanc is out until his club team starts up.

Does it really matter AA or AAA high school hockey is not even close to AAA midget. I watched several high school games last year at both levels hard to tell the difference

Big difference in playing for an overmatched AA high school team and a powerhouse AAA team. The AAA HS teams usually retain their players for their entire midget age. And for every player that makes the move from HS to AAA you can probably name 2 or 3 that go the other way in their last year of midget in Fredericton. For most kids if they don't make AAA their first year the ship has sailed and they are staying with HS.

A few years ago FHS had a top line that was comparable to any top line in AAA and none of those kids went out for AAA and had no interest in either going back to play AAA or making the switch over from HS. Is this the norm? No, but it has happened.

And I'm not advocating for taking an underage player, just giving a reason. Obviously they aren't going to leave out any midget age player that can play top 6 minutes, but if an underager is good enough to be on the team then the coach is going to want him on the team, regardless of whatever rules are in place.

Do I think Hoyt should be playing Bantam? yeah I think it's good for kids to learn to be leaders and the player to be relied on. Same thing with Leblanc, Plourde and Kenny last year.

Very much agreed , a few years years ago FHS had a top line with 2 McLeans ( not related) and Barnhill. They had all gone to HS in their last year. The AA teams don't compare but the AAA HS teams do draw from our midget AAA program.

No high school hockey in PEI that is why they have such a good midget minor program.High school hockey is more about the social life and being the big guy on campus.

Rightfully so , nasty hit from behind and nasty cross check to the face/neck. Guess the door is open for young Bertrand in Fredericton , forward Bamford walked out after the game yesterday and quit the team.

I have watched Cloutier play a few times this year he plays with an edge, sometimes to much of an edge.Chiasson is an agitator and the shot he gave deserved some type of retaliation.

Don't see how you can have the Rivermen second last when they beat both Fredericton and Moncton. Their only loss is 1-0 to the Vitos in a shootout. Not to mention they haven't had their original team play together yet and they've had to take 2-3 AP players each game.

With the games played so far:
Vitos
Rivermen
Flyers
Islanders
Canadiens
Wild

It's obvious that you have a connection to Miramichi and that's fine I wish them luck.My opinion is based on what I have watched during the Jamboree , exhibition and the first few regular season games.I will bookmark this and get back to you in March.

Who do we see as top players in the league this year? Any predictions out there?

[QUOTE=Canada4Gold1;70158103]I'm going to base my opinion on how many players the team took last year and from how guys played last year as well as what I've seen this summer. I'm not going to do the two island teams as I noticed that players can switch teams at will sometimes. Not sure why this happens but here goes with the NB teams:

Miramichi

Forwards
Plourde-Gendron-Castonguay
Theriault-Savoie-Beaulieu
Gallant-Woulds-Scott
Kenny-?-?

Not sure if Castonguay returns since he played some games with Campbellton Jr A last year. Roch Theriault, Eddie Banville, Tristan Young and Casey Ward would be the front runners for the spots that come to mind.

Defensemen
Warman-Lurette
Robichaud-?
Hebert-?

The real problem for the Rivermen is their defense. Robichaud could play Jr A in Campbellton (some say he's a lock) and I don't think Hebert was ready last year but he could be this year. None of the teams that Miramichi draw from have players that come to mind to fill the void. Elijah Francis would be a huge add if he doesn't return to Notre Dame.

Goalies
Vautour
?

If the Rivermen find defensemen to fill the void they could place higher than last year. Heard Landry has made Sea Dogs.

Francis Theriault is currently playing for the Campbellton Tigers Jr A as a 16 year old.

Already mentioned in an earlier post that he was there and that it's highly unlikely that the Rivermen take him back if Campbellton releases him since they have made it clear to players that if you start the year in Jr A you will not play Rivermen if your Jr A team tries to send you there. Have you been to any of the games he's played in? I'm curious to know if he's playing on the 2nd line or not? I can't see him on the first line. If he isn't playing 2nd line wouldn't this be a waste of a year? I know Will Bower and Matt Paul would only stay if they were given top minutes at their positions for Woodstock Jr A. It looks like Bower got top minutes while Paul didn't so he left Woodstock.

i cant see how those teams can develop players, the difference between their top and bottom players is staggering

There are so many of these schools now and it is hard to get quality player's, it has become more of a business. Not many years ago you had to tryout for the teams now some of these schools have to take player's that are not good enough but need to fill the roster. Besides Notre Dame and Shattuck the two best known schools who draw top end player's on there reputation and past history these other schools are just in it for the money.

Yes they are, I hear the Argos are the team coming they may be strong enough to take a run at the Telus Cup this year. Also a good time to do some recruiting and promote the program Del Pedrick spends a lot of team in the east during the summer.

I was just about to ask which team was coming. I'm hoping the Argos since Elijah Francis from Miramichi's area is on that team. More scouts will be able to see him for this year's up coming draft.
