Re: Response to Edina Squirt A???

The initial question was valid and asked out of curiosity. The current Squirt A parents that have chimmed in should be ashamed of themselves. I'm a current parent of a Bantam, PeeWee and Mite players in Edina. I do not have an "A" player in the family. Our skill levels are B and C levels. People wh...

Both sides are too sensitive. The guy who is frustrated needs a chill pill and a full time job. The ones who are outraged at the criticism need to not be so sensitive. Edina's squirt program isn't what it used to be but that is logical because there are 2 teams. Edina is still top 10. And thanks fo...

Its easy to sit back and say all this stuff when you hide behind your user name. Have some balls and either put your name on this site, leave the association if your unhappy, or pick up the phone and call the coaches. There pretty nice guys!

If the options are my child touching the puck 40 times in a 10 minute game or 10 times because there is a superstar hogging the puck, what option is better for the entire association? I think it's pretty clear even beyond the Mite age range. There's a reason the 3 v 3 leagues at Velocity, the Lumber...

I wouldn't be the least surprised to see hockey in the state go to regional, district, whatever teams, outside the metro area, for the above reasons.[/quote]

Nice point SECoach. There are a lot of people making a living (some may even get rich) off that parent's hockey dream. Off season can go back to one or two weeks of local summer skating camps. No spring leagues, AAA, fall leagues ... The same athletes will still likely rise to the top. Especially w...

The conundrum is a very short season and 25 games compared to the rest of the country and Canada. The community models does just fine at the Bantam level with kids playing roughly three times that number of games. I love MN highschool hockey. But 25 games doesn't provide the same level of game expe...

Figure out what the talent level is in your association, then choose your teams accordingly. Year to year adjustments should be normal. Since WBL didn't win State in overwhelming fashion(or in any fashion), then one would have to assume that they were playing at the right level. Problem is ... some...

How does one perform or receive an honest evaluation with close to 70-80 kids on the ice in 50 minutes? Just wear WHITE SOCKS!!! Makes you look faster. Is it ok if there were stripes on the socks? Took my kid up there to see how he stacked up against the NW metro...what a zoo. Oh , he was that kid.

Schedules are online. Looks like the same malarkey as other years... create as weak of a schedule as possible for the Orange teams to give them every opportunity to advance to the medal round. At 03 level, they are in the same bracket as MG, however they don't play MG. In addition, MG plays one gam...
