Well both of those tidbits are good to know: 1) Big Sexy is Sengvongxay 2) That no one is leaving the Cards I heard yesterday that Toby is indeed trying to make an NA team and is planning on leaving. Has there been any final word on Sengvongxay? If he is in Luverne for his senior year they will be ...

Clyde Bellecourt is hardly a carpetbagger. I dare say he's more local than you are. He's Ojibwe of the White Earth tribe, which is the nearest reservation to Warroad. He's best known as the co-founder of the American Indian Movement, but he also founded the Heart of the Earth Survival School, the P...

I tend to agree it is a waste of resources. But if there is going to be one, then it really should be in Minnesota, where youth and U18 hockey is preeminent. Transportation times and costs to and from MSP cant be much diff than Ann Arbor, so that factor has neutralized over the years. They could bo...

Agree that it's "all the usual suspects" here and it can be frustrating if your kids hasn't been one of the anointed ones since mites.

I would argue that a kid like Will Butcher, being in Wisconsin, benefits from proximity to Minnesota, and Wisconsin community hockey is pretty strong too. Not a stretch for scouts at all. Also, it's manifestly clear that the USNDTP works VERY hard to find kids from USA Hockey regions other than Minn...

If some Native Americans somewhere are offended, then that should be enough for non-Native folks to do the honorable thing. You can't tell people to "get over it" and to "stop being so sensitive" and that it "honors your heritage" or even "the locals support it." It doesn't work and never has, and t...

Yup, I see Dougherty, Poganski, Perry, Iverson, Collins, Glover, Gersich.

Who else? No Bittner or Walker? I guess Bittner is too young, not draft eligible until next year.

The nit wits chased Youth Hockey Hub away from here with pitchforks and torches, and now it's gotten considerably quieter everywhere at the Forums, including youth and high school.

This could be the best thing for MN Hockey. Might only benefit 20% of the kids playing hockey. That pretty much sums it up, dunnit. Yes, let's make hockey even more exclusive and expensive than it already is. If we have fewer hockey players, they'll be better... naturally. This is why Massachusetts...

Reading this thread, I cannot help thinking what if MN Hockey would open up their residency rule and let any hockey player play where they want. My son use to play soccer and that governed body lets players play anywhere. If this happened in hockey, associations would be forced to get their house i...

I think a big part of Edina's success is that every opponent brings their A game against the Hornets, from Squirts to Varsity.
