Bakke and Baker are good but not varsity good. the goalie Dalbac should have been on varsity but you can't blame giles for not cutting the assistant coaches kid "Not varsity good"? what does that mean? in most any other HS system (besides Edina and the other big assn's); the top JGA kids would defi...

Blaine v EP; should be a good game. EP has the edge with most of their injured players back.

1) There is still no place for less skilled non-U16 eligible to play. Most associations have one or two JG teams total. How do associations with 2 JG teams decide what level to play? 2) Is U16 meant to protect the younger (smaller) players? or develop them? I would like to understand the goal of tha...

Is this JGA? If so, has Blaine improved a lot over the season or is Stillwater weak this year?

Is the Jefferson goalie still knocking the net off about 5+ times a game? Is he also playing JV? I remember him as a bantam being very good. He does not need to resort to knocking the net off to make "saves"

Re: WHY

Too many penaltys of not enough? We will all have to get used to the new standards- the refs at my grandsons game last night didnt seems to know where to draw the line either - either too conservative or let too much go within the same game. In the meantime, kids dont need to get hurt playing JG ho...

EP is looking a little Jekyl-Hyde so far this year. now that I think about it many of the JGA teams are a little inconsistent. will be an interesting season.

Edina Why Edina? They have squeaked by Wayzata and Tonka; who are very close to EP- They look like the top four to me at this stage of the game- You would think Edina would be stronger with all the HS cuts but perhaps something more is missing from the team? So... They won the tournament and you're...

Yeah I can't deny that I am very surprised at a number of these picks. Not really sure what happened. Coaches preferences are not all the same. That is to be expected at all levels. If you have not experienced that so far, you have been fortunate/lucky or had politics on your side. Congratulations ...

Re: 16's/17's Predictions

After watching many games this past weekend this is my best guess for the final teams. 16's In my opinion these players are "locks" for the team: Forwards 1. Fasching NTDP 2. Lettieri 3. Labosky 4. Cline 5. Valesano 6. Voltin NTDP 7. 8. 9. 10. Defensemen 1. Gross 2. Raskob NTDP 3. Ausmus NTDP 4. Sc...

Here's what I predicted and what actually happened: Predictions: M1 = Wayzata M2 = Tonka M3 = Edina M4 = Ep M5 = Burnsville or Lakeville M6 = SLP Actual: M1 = SLP M2 = Tonka M3 = Ep M4 = Edina M5 = Burnsville M6 = TBD (either Wayzata or WBL) If Wayz...

Re: dakotakid

Junior Gold "A" hockey is pretty good. The top teams (Edina, Wayzata, Burnsville, Tonka; etc) would beat 90+% of the JV teams and most class "A" high school teams and some smaller AA high school teams. Ask for a waiver and join the likes of a burnsville, lakeville, or tonka. They all field good JGA...
