Re: Ryder Donovan to Wisconsin

First of all congrats to Ryder (since this is the topic) Personally I hope the following 1. The NCAA stops coaches and kids from talking before the kids junior year (then cap the number of verbals a college could have until it becomes a LOI). 2. The NCAA lowers the maximum age to enter as a freshman...

Re: Super State Tournament

16 teams..one class is a great idea...Heck go to 24 I say and have the first one or two rounds at some of the best hockey rinks in the state

Imagine .....Edina vs Duluth East played in Roseau....Or Hermantown versus Moorhead played at the Ralph

Final 8 (or 4) still play at the X....

Re: Hockey Day in MN

I don't think Minneapolis hockey has any say in picking the team...I believe the teams are picked by Fox Sports North, a committee of "experts" and the NHL/Wild?

Re: Smallest AA champion not named Roseau

Got it...Thanks.... trick question...I think they won it the first year or so it split

Try again...Eveleth? They won it when it was only one class so technically they could have been the smallest

Re: Possible Mr. Hockey Finalists 2018-2019

IMO -Luedtke, Koster and the Brodzinski are the best three players in the state

It will be interesting to see...Are the scouts making their decision based on who they see as the best skater that can play at that next level? Or simply the best high schooler playing "High school" type of hockey

Re: When will Minnetonka's first loss come?

I didn't have these stats that you just provided. It was just a conversation on a silly hockey forum I do think EP has more horsepower up front which could lead to more offense and possibly better power play. The biggest difference you point out is how good Tonka PK is compared to EP's. If this hold...

I wouldn't be surprised if it came this Thursday. Tonka may have their minds already on the outdoor game this weekend Offense - Advantage EP (even though they've scored less goals) Defense - Advantage Tonka Goaltending - Tonka Coaching - Wash Special teams - Slight edge to EP Key to EP winning - Bal...

Re: Private School Top 10 for 2018-19

This is a great reason why I think private schools should have their own conference. Let them play each other twice a year. How much fun would it be to see St Thomas, HF, Blake, Hill Murray, Cretin and whoever else all in the same conference. Recruiting budgets would triple, rivalries would form, at...

Players were nominated by an undisclosed panel made up by NHL Scouts, College Coaches and other hockey-minded entities

Re: Elite League Livestream: NTDP u17 vs. N & SW

I could be wrong but I highly doubt the colleges are pulling up the "stats page" and making their picks off it Scouts are looking for kids to make the right play...Sometimes that means skating around 2-3 opponents but usually it means making the pass when your're suppose to make it versus when you h...

Re: 2018 elite league

Couple points 1. Just because a kid didn't play High School hockey doesn't mean a thing. Every year you could easily point out 10-15 Bantam kids who could have easily made their High School team had they chosen to play up (or in some cases, had their High School coach allowed these kids to play up) ...

Mavskie Since we are going "back in time" remember hockey was once a sport "originally" played 4 months out of the year.
