Eliminating B state opportunities is a bad idea. For example, There is a huge difference between 12UA hockey and 12UB hockey. In fact, if you watched many games in both A & B, you would realize every team in B is a B team...including those teams in the U12B state tournament. They are just good B tea...

Tartan, Red Wing, St. Francis, Chisago are examples. I have watched all these teams play and they have some A kids, some...
