Reading/CM Hockey Game

I have a few questions.....First of all it's CM and everybody else 16 Championships in 20 years tells you this.
How do you rank MC a level below CM and BC High this year (focus....focus on this year only) MC head to head against these two teams is 2-1-1. CM is 1-1-2 and BC High was 1-2-1 so how does MC fall below them? MC was one of only two teams to have a winning record against the Globe's top 10.CM was the other. How is MC ranked behind BC High when BCH finished in last place of the Catholic Conference? How is Reading in the same class as SJP and MC??? Reading has two non league games this season (CM & BCH) and they lose both. MC has already beaten both......Then you lump Woburn in with Xaverian???? Woburn didn't even play a non league game until today so how can you measure them against anybody?? I don't see where these tiers have any validity. Central Catholic plays HALF their season against Division 2 opponents and there one big outside opponent was SJP and they tied.
The 10 teams for the Super 8(no particular order) will be CM, BCH, SJP,MC, Weymouth,Woburn, Reading, Austin Prep, Central Catholic Waltham. The top 6 teams should be CM, SJP,MC, BC High, Reading, Weymouth. The play in teams should be Austin, Woburn, Central and Waltham. If you put BC High in as a top 6 and not MC it is a complete joke. How can you finish behind someone in your own conference, split head to head, have a losing record against the other Super 8 teams and be seeded higher??? It is a joke.........I realize BC High is BC High put let's look at 2006-2007 ONLY.
It's more like
Tier 1: CM
Tier 2: MC, BCH, SJP
Tier 3: Xaverian (Who won't even get a top 10 spot) Austin Prep, Reading
Tier 4: Woburn, Central Catholic, Weymouth
As for the CM Reading game today.....The game was dead even other than the second half of the first period. Reading dominated the first 8 minutes because as you mentioned they essentially played one line. The first line playe 9:23 seconds out of 15 and then game back with 5 out of the next 7 minutes. The game was never out of control for CM but it was a particularly boring game. The game was essentially even matched....CM scored 3 WEAK goals.....goals 1,3,4 were all lousy. Reading has always been dogged by poor goaltending and this year was no different. I see a CM v either BC/MC final depending on how the brackets play out and another CM title
