CM is a great player... some say once in a generation... upstaged on his senior year victory lap, as GH leads his team to the hockey promised land. That's how it looked from the "JV arm chair." (your insult attempt was pathetic by the way)

Like someone said could be last time with whole team with him leaving for GB. Also he did it last year so he would know if it was worth it to him. I think you nailed it!!! After reading all the posts about treating an injury, and the last team bus ride nonsense, I think you've got it. It is what it...

I could see a Jeff Foxworthy act based on the criteria for A vs. AA.

Let them go for a title with an *, but don't pretend they are a small struggling community. Have you been to Monti? Seen their HS? Seen the growth? Enrollment...losing players...cycles of talent... What program doesn't have them? They need to man up for their programs sake, and quit playing the vict...

David Wilkie is a great coach If true they would be a team of Omaha/Council Bluffs/Lincoln players. None of the top tier one programs has only local players. If anything, the fact that good players are willing to move to Nebraska indicates he is a great coach. He's turned it into a top-5 program. T...

Cambridge/Isanti's goalie left the program for the 2nd time. He is going to play club/AAA hockey in Omaha. It leaves their HS program and 26 skaters with out a goalie.

Here is what I know.. Tryouts for the Section teams are picked by the coaching staffs. There are usually 4-5 coaching staffs that have a heavy presence in the evaluations which in turn results in more players making the roster. I would say there are 7-10 locks going into this phase. This is where p...

I think Elliott70 said it best when this exact subject came up last year I have questions... Where do you people get your information? How do you know it is a lock for some kids?

I think we all know there is limits to the process and time is one of them, but publishing ranking is easy. Everyone knows where they stand and/or stood. Being transparent also forces you to have to rank the section manager's kid too, and not hide behind the old timers with clip boards.

IF the players are evaluated individually, the odds are still low that section 5 only sends one skater to the 54. There should be individual feedback, or better yet straight up publish a ranking after the festivals. I suspect they come in with ranking at the start. These are big boys they can handle...

For the HP 16/17 this program is run by the HS Coaches. The supposed mission is to identify the best players unfortunately that does not appear to happen. Ironically their own and friends seem to advance. Time to make a change. Just what we need... HS coaches with more power. There is no where to e...

Definitely some surprises and not sure what game(s) they watched. Seemed to have a love for some programs and certain players who should have been left out. Like the door man says... sorry your name is not on the list.

Re: EP Medals

It would have been nice to see some EP players show more class accepting their 2nd place medals. Middlestat and a few others removed their medals showing disrespect after the presenter put the medal around their necks. Second Place Mittelstadt acts like he's 17. Lucky for him he is. Let's hope he m...

Speaking of medals the MSHSL made a huge mistake or GR will have some explaining to do by having the suspended player on the ice for the awards ceremony.
