Now that rosters are finalized how do local 2023 shape up? OT, Express Katonah/Westport, Preds, Eclipse, TS91, others?
Just a guess but Prime Time is likely the strongest of the group. I heard Eclipse had a fair amount of turnover on their roster so it should be improved. Not sure how the Express North teams look relative to the others - the Katonah teams should be pretty good. No idea on TS91 and Preds.
2023 Express North apparently pretty strong but time will tell. Apparently some screw ups with North 2020 and 2021. Was supposed to be AA, A and B in Westchester but there was a big exodus. AA still very solid but they were forced to distribute the B level kids to A in Westchester and A in Fairfield. Basically put some very weak kids on what would have been solid A teams. Folks not happy with the miscalculation.
So, they miscalculated the number of quality players, tried to form two really solid 2021 and 2020 teams plus a B team and what happened? The kids who were supposed to be on A were discouraged and left? Its happened before. Its not easy to field two quality teams per division in Westchester. There are too many great options and we lack the population density to support multi-teams.
