of all the divisions, I'm most looking forward to the U14's. I'll be rooting for TI and they are part of the "Big 4" in this group, along with LA Selects, SSM, and Honeybaked. for what the myhockey rankings are worth, this group of four teams really separated themselves from the rest of the pack this year.
This should have set up a potential dream pair of semifinal games. USA Hockey was smart enough to evenly split them into different pools and not schedule a preliminary game between TI & LA. However, they inexplicably scheduled a pool game between Honeybaked and Shattuck. The loser will likely finish 3rd in their pool and match up against TI or LA in a quarterfinal game. This really rewards the team that wins the "TI/LA" pool and, since they don't play each other, expect big blowout, run up the score type games as both teams want to own the tiebreaker.
