Thorne has been absolutely fantastic. He's really got a good grasp of the game, makes well timed observations and I love that voice.

And how great is it that Housley is not even in the state this year for the tournament? I hope he never comes back.

Wow, I've seen a lot of kids fade from 8th to 10th grade to the middle of the pack and many others skyrocket from the bottom to the top.

But like other say, whats the harm in this? He still has to work hard and do his homework or he won't be playing any hockey.

Re: TV Announcer annoyances

Gonna have to go see some games in person. Announcers mispronunciations driving me crazy. It's not CH-sago lakes it's SHHisago Lakes. Sounds like SHI$ NOT CHIT.

Edina is hotdogging now, everyone is trying to score themselves, not passing much. Too bad SW gave up that last goal because if they could have gotten within 2 going into the 3rd period this could be a different game.

Stillwater has to go out and execute some kind of a game plan because all they are doing is reacting to whatever Edina is doing. They are in a tough conference and section so I expected more than this. I think they were just wound too tight about this trip to the Tourney. These kids have been playin...

I wonder if there is a waiting list of Stillwater kids at Hill Murray and St Thomas trying to get on the team? This just wasn't supposed to happen! I mean, what are they paying for!

What is with this AA and A stuff?

It's been a few years since I had kids in youth hockey but I had to laugh at this.

So A is what if AA is the top level?

Why not call it "A lite" like lite beer?

Either you're an A player or not. What is with this?

Re: Private vs Public

......never in my life did I think I would be pulling for Edina but I was because that program still does it the old fashioned way with their own home spun kids.. Exactly. Very strange feeling, indeed. Ideally, I would like to see a private school class, since they have a competitive advantage. But...

The Stepford Children won another tin cup trophy, stolen from the small schools of Minnesota.

Is there a creepier team in MN than STA with those creepy looking uniforms and no girls?

Education will be fine, if you want to raise a kid who only cares about hockey. What a ridiculous concept, sending your child to school in a hockey rink. Seriously some people should have their head examined. If hockey is this important to the family, send them to a real private school like Shattuck...
