Re: Rosemount soph F Luke Levandowski commits to Wisconsin

Haven’t yet seen him play in HS, but he was a heck of a bantam player last year. Congrats and good luck! 🍀

Re: Possible Mr. Hockey Finalists 2018-2019

Much like Sammy Walker last year, if Brodzinski can approach 60 points I see him winning Mr Hockey. Looking at Blaine’s schedule, they’ve got a gauntlet featuring MG, Elk, and Andover twice, DE, EP, WBL, and HM. If he puts up 60 with that schedule he should win it - unless another player puts togeth...

Re: Any Centennial Curmudgeons on here? (Lucas McGregor)

That parent also said that the U decommitted somewhere along the lines of 8 to 10 kids in the last month. 8 to 10? Really? Exiled - Was his loyalty questioned before he left SCSU? If not why should it be considered a long term issue? Fact is he inherited a terrible roster and some recruits that don...

“Wisconsin might be getting better? Minnesota might be getting worse?” As I mentioned, I hope WI hockey is getting better. Hockey around the country is getting better and that’s a great thing.

IGN, thanks for your informed assessment as to the competitiveness of these levels. Wisconsin has very many good players. Evidence is that their Elite League team is able to compete.

Hudson is basically an East Metro suburb. I’m glad they’re doing well, but suggesting MN hockey is fading based on a 4 game sample wherein the MN teams they’ve beat are middle of the road (at best in Woodbury’s case, Mankato East could be a rising Class A team over the next couple years) as far as t...

Eagan is the biggest surprise for me so far, will be interesting to see how they progress.
They have a really strong first line, not sure about depth after that. But that top line could all be 50 point scorers this year.

KD a nice surprise over the weekend. Could be a trend or a mirage.

KD wears #23 and initials are? Opposite of ...

Re: Junior gold rosters

I drove Zamboni part time a few years ago and saw quite a few junior gold games. Closer to Slap Shot than MNHSL. They actually shook hands before the game to avoid full team brawls they’d likely have if they shook after the game. I was so confused the first time I saw it. Hopefully it’s cleaned up s...

Again, it's either in town or a handful of hours to the south/southeast...either way? Both mascots begin with a 'B'.
D East are the cake eaters of the north, so maybe this guy knows what he’s talking about. In that case, hope it’s Bulldogs. Better dead than red!

Brodzinski and / or Perbix to be added depending on accuracy of some of the rumors out there
Both would be top 5 contenders if they play HS hockey this year.

"Additionally, Perbix said that his college team wanted him to play for the Gamblers, adding they are willing to let him play collegiate hockey as a true freshman pending a good season in the USHL." Not very good optics for the U, encouraging recruits to leave school and go to the USHL. Not a good ...

What is wrong with metro high school hockey? Disliking Chaska is bizarre. I think they will be a great story this season and have their best team ever. Agreed.
