The whole premise around the non-stop preaching on this topic is in my opinion flawed. HS coaches and the MN hockey royalty all talk about how it's best to stay in the nurturing environment of the home until they graduate. There is one problem with that however. It only applies to a percentage of b...

I think what he is saying is what is the rush ? I think the two of you agree. But rushing it, leaving early, brings more peril into play. There is more to lose than to gain would be another way of phrasing it. If a kid is a year older, he is a year more prepared for life away from home. He also say...

What happend to trading Pins/Patches?

I have a box full - thought it was cool when I was a little guy. Usually Silver Stick or any other Tourney with Canadian teams. Just thought I would get away (briefly) from rankings and scores! I just think it was a cool thing. A little ceremony after the lineups were called and everyone skated acro...

Vaguely related note: Noticed that the rocks outside the high school were painted red and white with "Jabs" across them, but saw a grand total of one Jabby button on an adult's jacket in a full house.[/quote] You described the game very well, why lay this turd comment at the end?

Every witness to an event sees it from his own angle and bias. A grievance has been filed apparently. Perhaps we should let them handle it before someone is convicted. While I do not doubt the player, coach, and parent; I am skeptical of the news media. They make it so easy to be skeptical: Bantum?...

This does not answer your question for coaches today, but I have fond memories of skating with Dick Vraa in my youth (long, long time ago). I know there are plenty more guys out there that skated with DV! My PW A coach brought him to a few practices, at first we were thinking who is this guy in figu...

Brainerd/Little Falls Coach Peltoma resigns. Nice time to resign, 5 weeks before the season. There has to be more to this story. Life still happens... "Basically, I have a career opportunity that was presented to me,” Peltoma said, “and I can’t turn it down. It’s just a nice fit, but in taking this...

I would love to hear a ref chime in on this proposed change. In squirts, how many times have you seen a smaller kid try to angle or rub out a bigger skater - get's knocked down and the arm goes up calling the bigger kid?

When UND is 100% healthy they're almost unbeatable. There was a point in the season when they were without Genoway, Kristo, Gregoire, MacWilliam and Forbort. And they still won games. They're just too deep. They have an all-american backup goalie for crying out loud. A future 1st/2nd rounder who si...
