Do the Blades U16 only have 98 birth years on it and that`s why they are considered Midget Minor? I thought U16 teams were considered Midget Major, because they have 97 and 98 birth years.

If the prefential route for a Minnesota kid is the NCAA, then why did the Gophers only have 1 SENIOR this year, where did the others go in that recruiting class and why did they leave?

The leading scorer and mvp is a smurf, if he were even 5' 10' he'd be a first rounder. 5" 7" is being generous. If you watched game 7 between LA and the Sharks last night there is no need to explain any further. If he somehow manages to keep putting up crazy numbers he'll get his chance. Look at hi...

You are right scorekeep, and that reason is they have the luxury of getting first crack at the top players in the best hockey player producing country on the planet.

There is nothing worse than using the excuse that their role is not to score or produce points, really? So when they hit the ice on the 4th line the coach says "whatever you do just check but dont score". Ok, so they can handle the Mike Rupp role, great. Of course they are still young players and w...

Where did you get draft from then? Its a camp to evaluate kids that have the potential to play in the USHL, all the teams will have reps there watching. If the acorn doesn`t fall far from the tree maybe you should look at CHL.

Have it and worth it are not mutually exclusive for me. Same answer. Now, if I had the $$ would it be worth it? For me, it would depend on how much my kid wanted that type of commitment.

Maybe YHH will have the top AAA player at each level and Freddie could do a top 50 list, and they could post a picture of them playing hockey in the winter. That might get some traffic for you. :lol: :lol:

Re: SSM Departures

Seems to be a trend of Mn SSM players coming back (a few this year) to high school Hockey. Now I'm hearing as many as five from their various SSM teams might be coming back. Did the two losses to our high school teams change their minds on prep school Hockey and the level of MHSL competition? I was...
