Not a good start for the first American team in history to play in the RBC Cup. A 5-1 loss to the host team. We showed well on the shot clock though, keeping pace at 26 apiece.

To slightly change the subject, let me ask a question about these kids. Were they all superstars through squirts and peewees and everyone knew who they were or are there a couple that developed late and went from good players to great players at bantam or later? Just curious as I am not from there ...

Way I've seen it, levels top to bottoms would go, based on hockey play: USHL NAHL/Candian Junior A equals more or less. Tier 3 One thing about the CMJ A League, is that there is lot of differences between the leagues/teams. Some leagues are good, some not, same with teams. I.e, the Canadian teams I...

They must be pretty good, as they are in the RBC Cup this week. Yes, I think they are first SIJHL team to reach the RBC Cup Tournament. Not sure why they would drop down a Tier to the NAHL. Maybe to save the billet expenses or maybe just tired of the constant travel up North, although that won't ge...

It's considered Tier II I believe. It's actually considered Tier I by their designation. Canada doesn't actually have the Tier 1, 2, 3 designations. Instead they have Junior A, B & C. Of course also Major Junior, but that's considered professional. Canadian Junior A Leagues are required to cover al...

Strange that only 11 forwards for the 16s. You would think that we would get at least 20 kids at each level. There will be 20. If last year is any guide, USA Hockey is saving a spot for Alec Baer, and so they should Why should they save a spot? Well, the whole idea is to gather the very players fro...

One was born February of 1996 and the other June of 1997. So they are 1 year apart. Maybe one got held back or started school late and is a freshman when he could easily be a soph. Big fricken deal.

6 looks weak. The thing that is going to hurt 6 is no juniors. They had a very deep team in 16 and 17's but now the skill, along with goaltending, is being spread out between the 18's and Great 8. While there are some strong Juniors in Section 6, it's the fact that some strong seniors chose not to ...

I hope the MSHL is seriously considering this. It makes a lot of sense for super-competitive Sections like 6AA and 2AA. It also gives the Tourney some fresh blood. I hope this gets legs

Once again the most popular man in the building should be Zach Driscoll. There are only a handful of Pioneer faithful who won't be cheering loudly for the Eastview goaltender.
