If you look at the players tendered vs the players roster in either the NA or USHL, it is about a 50/50 chance of sticking from a tendered spot

I caught the Sunday afternoon game between the Magicians and the Coulee Region Chill - it was all magicians. I was expecting more out of Coulee and was a little surprised. Most of Coulee's shots were from the outside - not many good scoring chances for them. It will be interesting to see if Coulee w...

Went to the Saturday night game against the Wilderness - Magicians score 2 goals in the final minute to tie the game and win it in the shootout - with each team going 12 players deep into the shootout.

I saw both games over the weekend as well - Saturday was a great game, very entertaining. Sundays games didn't have much flow with all the penalties - on both teams. Look forward to catching the game this Saturday as it is the first game they get to serve beer...

You take the best hockey players.... the ones that will give you the best chance of winning now and in the future. All that other stuff is politics - wait we are talking about Lakeville :shock:

I saw the game Sunday morning - it was very good - once the list gets reduced to 25 - 30 I suspect it will look even better, as there were a couple kids that didn't seem to want to move the puck, which usually doesn't work at the Jr level.

Not sure why you write it off before it gets going - except you and a few others must be jealous because someone got off their butt and actually did something other than sit on the couch and make useless comments - your life must be miserable....

....USHL is Tier I and NAHL is Tier II - those are the only 2 leagues in the US that are not tuition based. Both providing players very good opportunities.

...Folks should really do their homework - look at the NAHL rosters and see how many 15/16 year olds are on the rosters. Out of the hundred's of players in the NAHL - there are 8 or 9 total that fit this category ('96 birth year - no '97 birth year)- and they are all out of state kids. The NAHL is m...

I am just curious how many NAHL games and D3 games S & D has seen - to try to understand his knowledge of both. The games I have seen in both the NAHL and D3 (and it has been numerous games in both this year) reflects the comment made about a wide range of talent in both - both have good players and...

Is the only reason for someone to play junior hockey to land on a college roster someday? What if someone knows they don't have a future (career vise) but simply wants to continue to play a sport they love at the highest possible level they can for the longest time? If they, or they and their parent...

It will be interesting to see how this develops. I suspect the team will be better than the bottom of the division based on the talent pool, but you never know. I will certainly go to the games - beats driving to Austin, Coulee, or the Blizzard and I have been to all 3 this year.

The Z is holding out hope that AHA will be there, and the reason you play the games is anything can happen. Seems like a long shot his team will get out of the 1st round but they could if their stronger players have a great game

I have seen close to 100 games already this year - Jr's, HS and Bantamm AA - and it seems when you are not pulling for a specific team, the ref's tend to get it right more times than not. In those games did the ref's make some questionable calls - sure they did. That said, they got it right most of ...
