Re: Games 1-19-21 Tuesday

HM 3-1 over Chaska OUCH. According to the Hub, shots were 54-15 HM. Makes you wonder if Hill will score enough against the good teams. Watching most of this game, the shot count doesn’t surprise me as HM held most of the puck possession and zone time, though of those 54 shots only a few seemed like...

Re: Early Christmas Present: Boys State Hockey Tournament (Meeting Dec 3rd)

Current word is youth hockey (not speaking for HS) will be back in limited fashion on Dec 19 - no guarantee, but good possibility. Elliott, I sure hope you’re right. But, after cases statewide being in the low to mid 3,000 range the last few days, yesterday’s cases were over 4,400 statewide. And, i...

Re: covid and MH

Kids play organized sports almost 52 weeks a year, and we're worried a four week pause is going to affect their physical and mental health? That's not worth responding to. If anything, kids are over-programmed in the modern world. I'll listen when these same parents file lawsuits (like the #letthem...

Re: Bridge Season Games

Can we all just agree to remember that all of the bridge league and future summer hockey games don’t have all varsity players and shouldn’t be used to determine how the upcoming season’s teams will be? This will prevent the obligatory minnscout reminder of how many varsity BSM players were missing. ...

Re: "Before and After"

Yes, all three of those scenarios are accurate. This year might have a few less that planned out, but again typically students doing before and after do coordinate with their ADs even if they are unsure if they’re coming back. They do it right so they have a backup plan. I can think of a couple situ...

Re: YHH Podcast: 10/25/20

Good listen! Just one correction: HS rosters are technically finalized Jan 1st, so well after the board mtg. Of course, when talking about cutting players from JV, that obviously happens one week after tryouts.

Correct. One of a handful of 05s on U16 club. Between him, Whitelaw on Prep, and Woodbury’s Henricks they have a really solid crew of 05s. Obviously many others too.

Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

After two USHL teams declare they are taking the 2020-2021 season off, every other USHL team receives about 3 new players who would have been on a USHL roster this year. 3 isn’t a ton, but could certainly have a trickle effect on some bubble players hoping to make the early jump this year.

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

Yeah they load up because why not? At least one or two practice goalies but then if they want they can give them games in NA3HL or U18 AAA leagues. NAHL has a great history of developing high end goalies but unfortunately they have a long list of goalies who have been buried on the rosters.

With the USHL/NAHL drafts now completed, it seems to be another decent year for MNHS goalies moving on to juniors. Too early to tell on how it'll all shake out, but by my count we have the following (apologies if I missed any): Pinney - tendered to St Cloud of NAHL Hodges - drafted by Austin in NAH...

Towards the end when they discussed how USHL is not just a given for many of these high school players, it reminded me of something else.

Re: 2AA outlook

Minnetonka has the benefit of great depth and a lack of super high end guys that are flight risks. Big question mark is goaltending. PL similar story but with two very high end goalies. EP is the opposite. Lots of potential for guys who are doing before/after to pull a Bobby Brink/Blake McLaughlin a...
