It is not a surprise. the great Randinie has only coached 5 kids for the last three years. This is the group he has ignored. They have no interest in winning for Rand and he has ticked them off over his over indulgence in last years first line.

If Mike is moving to ONU let us know, there will be lines around the block of former and current players and parents willing to help him pack and get out of town.

You hit the nail on the head. Some coaches have the bias to influence the ratings. Many of these coaches were the regular season coach for the players they are promoting. You mean to tell me that a player did not even have to show up to make the St. Cloud group!! I believe this because I know of a p...

I think at this level it is still a who you know and who you schmooze. There was a kid on one team I watched did not score a goal, did not have an assist, and had a minus three on a plus/ minus in all five games played. Of the 12 forwards I would have put him at six or seven on his team. Yet he got ...

After East thumped Wb 8-1 and put the game in running time at the VFW, I don't think there is much more to think about.

What happened to East? It is not that hard to figure out. East out shot Grand Rapids by about 38 to 17 Sheppard is a very good goalie and he was on today and he won the game. Today the better team won.

In the case above the kid is not going to Duluth. Most associations have by-laws that address these issues. Generally if you do not try out you go to the lowest level. B1 or B2. It would take an act on the association's board to place a skater at a higher level.

If this is the kid I think it is (hypothetically of course), there is a history of not paying the assessments. I don’t think the association will be very happy with him or his father in the long run. The families of the players who are now not getting as much ice time will be vocal. The coach will d...

Changing line members

Why is it that some coaches will set their lines (three in this case) and not change them all year. Not even in special situations, like the team is ahead or behind and you need to make something happen. This is a Bantam B1 team. The first line is strong and the next two lines are fairly equal but n...
