I agree with CM. However, TI and Fury are at the very very best NIHL elite AA squads and may improve on that. The rub is they are not AAA level or even close, and to wager on who is a better AAA club between TI and Fury is absurd, especially AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON. Letís be realistic about the benefits of "who you play against". My son's AAA club thumped another AAA club once by 10 goals. I am quite sure the other team learned nothing from this and my sonís team was worse off as well. Nothing good comes from games like these. There are levels to EVERY THING in this world. People have to "earn it" or "make it" to the "next level" you canít just write a check and wah-lah your AAA because it says it on the locker room door. I wish all the kids on TI and Fury well and hope they learn allot. I donít look forward to watching my son's team play them and am bothered that IL tryís to carry 4 AAA clubs when they obviously canít. It's all about $$$ in IL hockey...and that's sad. My sonís club will play TI and Fury because they have to not because they want to. As parents we must pay for this ice time and frankly I resent having to do this when it comes to playing teams like TI or Fury. I donít like having to pay for other peopleís vanity.
