I could go on and on about the BS we were fed when our boys played independent hockey 3 years ago for Rev, "EJ is very comparable to DVHL, in fact it's better", "the driving is similar, think of playing WBS every so often, the furthest drive is about 2hrs". Every so often is a huge understatement, this is the common travel schedule practically all season. The closest we played was Toms River NJ. Our common destinations were North Jersey, ie Secaucus, Morris County and north. We played mainly out in Ramapo, Rye and as high up as Long Island NY and into Connecticut. If this is the kind of travel tier ll parents want, than this is the league for them. EJ is a meaningless tournament showcase league that provides nothing to any club below tier 1 AAA. Coaches, recruiters and scouts DO NOT attend tier ll events.
