Re: Armstrong/Cooper

More indicative of Elk River being down and Blake being overrated, than the Wings being any good. Wings big and not skilled or deep. A lot of good baseball players on A/C killing time until snow melts.

Re: Possible Mr. Hockey Finalists 2018-2019

Is there a citizenship or academic component involved in Mr Hockey? Or is is based solely on NHL draft status? Has there ever been a Mr Hockey winner determined to be not NCAA eligible? Sorry for the ignorance, just don’t know where criteria is specified.

Re: Eden Prairie 218 hockey swing, 1/11 and 1/12

Good win for the Eagles. Holt, Batchelder, middlestat all play big roles in the victory. Looks like Smith has elevated their play to help Jensen be in scoring positions. The young guns at EP have gained valuable experience and will be much better when sections roll around. Hope that there is room Jo...

Re: Eden Prairie …

O Town. I did not mean to disrespect Jackson Blake’s performance today vs Gentry Academy. That Blake kid can play and I was a huge fan of his dad in a Sioux uniform. Maybe Jackson will join the 3 Super Sophs from EP again the future. I am hoping for an EP reunion party and not one in Plymouth, MI. G...

Re: Eden Prairie …

Holt, Batchelder, and the Middlestats not enough against a solid Edina squad. These EP young guns gained valuable experience and displayed their great potential. I just hope they stick around and resist the lure of Ann Arbor. Coach Smith can develop these players much like he did for Casey. Go Eagles!

Re: How many Titles would Eden Prairie have with Mike Randolph in the last 20 years?

I am not smart enough to go 20 years back, but I wonder how Randolph(or anyone) would have helped EP win a title in ‘16-‘17 with Casey Middlestat and a bunch of 1998 seniors. EP got a slim win, I think, over Holy Family in sections, then lost to Grand Rapids. Grand Rapids was good, but maybe not as ...

Re: Eden Prairie …

EP should be fine without Jensen. They still got not 1 but 2 Middlestats and Holt and Batchelder.
Even if Edina rises to the occasion in their own tourney, this EP core gains experience for later I the season. Should be a fun game!!

Great kid, but others on BSM roster are making this player better in regards to stats. No dog in race here, but hockey hub stats are often inaccurate and dont identify the best players for the next level. There are many scouts at BSM and other MSHSL games. There is no free pass for the leading point...

Slap shot: Hockey players transferring TO Hopkins would be a huge development. Youth players in the 1997-2000 birth years have been leaving Hopkins for Minnetinka or Tier 1 hockey. Please enlighten the forum of your knowledge. Thanks.

Good news for Tier 1 players...NHL scouts do not attend the MSHSL Hockey tourney and do not change their rankings bases on this tournament. This probably explains why all top juniors and seniors leave. The MSHSL tourney may be cute to watch on tv, but the real players are not there. Camarrata, Guent...

This thread started out with a factually terrible post. It is pointless to name 50-100 98's before camps begin and compare point totals from this year. Shattuck, AA varsity top teams, bottom feeder varsity teams, jv squads, and bantams will be represented.

Do these players only play/practice with these teams on the weekends?

Is attending high school optional? On-line homework?

I wish all these players the best on and off the ice.
