Re: University of St Thomas

Attendance is a great topic as it pertains to St Thomas possibly going D-1 On one hand you have schools like ASU playing in front of 400 people and the U of MN playing in a arena half full. My guess is St Thomas would struggle to draw in the casual Metro area hockey fan. Just to much competition in ...

Re: Bantams vs. High School

My personal view on this... I like a forward to practice more puck possession the younger they are...Puck on stick, time and space to make the right decision. Repetition...over and over and over I think this is a little more important than playing to a faster speed.. I think speed is easier to learn...

Re: Bantams vs. High School

There is no right or wrong answer but if you told me I was in charge of making the decision I would say take your time and stay at Bantams Bantams 45-55 games You're kid is probably on the PP and top 6 (maybe top 3) weekend tournaments (the last you'll probably experience this) Lots of free press fr...

Re: Watch NTDP vs Elite League this weekend

He will be an early early first round draft choice...That's a given Aside from that, we must all admit hockey is really no longer a contact sport. I see more hitting in a non checking pee wee game then I do some USHL games. Imagine 5-10 years ago a team going down 3-1 or 4-1....Coach calls a timeout...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

I think picking ONE all star team would prove to be HIGHLY political and the results may actually be the same.... If you opened it up to every kid, how would you pick a "fair" team? Would you have the kids vote for the team(s)? The coaches? The scouts? How do you propose taking the politics out of t...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Do we know how many times since #7 was added has the High School league still said NO (even after both AD's signed off on it)? To me, once they added in #7 the flood gates are now wide open....A good number of AD's could care less about hockey and will sign a piece of paper for any family wanting to...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

I have no dog in this fight and have stated I'm okay with him going back... But from a learning the rules standpoint, how is it he's allowed to go back and play if I quote the newspaper article "he will stay with friends and family during the season" Is it as simple as getting both AD's to agree?

Re: Will Curt Giles ever get his due?

Giles is in a tough spot If he wins, it's because of his deep pool of talent (and the money behind it) If he loses he is going to get blamed. He doesn't seem to want the attention, he doesn't make excuses and you don't find him hanging out at Bunny's with the parents It's the highest profile, most d...

AAA hockey has had a lot to do with this as friendships are made during the spring and these ideas got...
