I take it CenRED is from Centennial and his/her daughter did not make the team. However it looks like 3 others players from D10 made it. Where does all the complaining end??? If your daughter did not make it, learn from it. Evaluate your own player and make the good decisions to improve your athlete...

Nice analogy. I agree with most of what you say. The parent groups and associations have to come to an understanding to support such a plan/proposal but to many "general managers" will make it a recipe for disaster. Another drawback, most associations do not allow waiver players to make A teams whic...

[/quote] I've seen a lot of A teams (girls, boys, all ages) that play dump and chase hockey. I blame it on the coaches instead of the talent. Given a weak team coaches can decide to play defensive hockey, or to develop their players even if it means losing a few games. Coaches who chose wins over de...

Nice call! - Was a heck of a game, both teams made adjustments and all players responded to challenge. Congratulations EP for being able to capitalize in a very good game.

HMMMMM Chisago over Tartan in Semis 4-2 of the State Tournament. I guess that A team idea from the eager parent group of Tartan love was a little off base. Losing to Chisago in Semis now has you playing for 3rd and possibly ending up 4th. It was a nice run! Congrats Tartan for giving it your all, yo...

Did Edina "throw" it this past weekend to play in the weaker side? I am not sure if it is possible, but does anyone have a take on this?

There are no C teams because the same reason why the State Tournaments in all sports (specifically Hockey) have a championship opportunity for all school sizes.

Its about ice time IMHO. You need the quality coaching hours. Just having hours with a leader with the title of "coach" does not always compute. Can the lad actually teach, articulate, demonstrate effectively in more than one way. You will need at the very least 100 hours of ice time described above...

Edina 12A would beat their top 12B team which looks like 12B Black handly. Another point, Eden Prairie. The EP 12A...
