Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

I'm going to guess that Glockner and Welch will ultimately land somewhere as well, but you are correct that there were some very "interesting" selections last year. There are obviously times when there is more to the story behind the scenes that provides additional explanation, but I still haven't ...

Re: Will Curt Giles ever get his due?

It's interesting to see how many different styles there are of being an effective coach. Giles is as reserved as they come. Randolph isn't particularly vocal on the bench either, but has a comfort level with the media. Both are very intense in their own ways. Lechner, less so, but he does it with h...

Good stuff Karl =D>

The guy doesn't need the spotlight. More importantly - he cares about his players.

Re: Maple Grove departures

To me, losing a couple kids to USHL teams (like DE did this year, which BTW, doesn’t happen very often to them) is one thing & losing 4 players to NTDP (over 4 years) including 2 brothers...is another. Kids from your youth program getting NTDP tryouts and/or invites is a BIG feather in your cap (fo...

Like I was trying to tell HockeyNerd, be happy.....just so all the association and HS parents and coaches and staff are OK with the current MG pipeline outcome trends

Speaking of Hanus, I hear he will get an invite to the Ottawa Senators camp.
Always fun to read your comments WM.

And? Regarding the 6 (impact) early departures last 3 years: 4 NTDP kids 1 WHL kid 2 NHL draft picks (Janicke and Haider). The other 4 are eligible in 2020 and ‘21. So far. I’d say it’s working just fine for them. Parents all seem to dislike Bergland. At least the ones I have spoken too. Would the k...

Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

There are lots of research showing how a student leaving high school a semester early to participate in spring practice shows more harm than good. Phillip Nelson may be the poster child of this in Minnesota high school football. When you get to hockey most of the “research” comes from USA hockey wh...

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

I know way too much about this BB and Blaine situation. It's ugly, and full of critical comments from a lot of Blaine parents and players that shouldn't get posted due to the facts that these are all kids. However, I have ZERO idea how it ends up. Blaine's biggest question mark is in goal. This woul...

Contrary to my previous bad Intel, it appears that Nathan Mueller (Buffalo) has landed with the expansion Wisconsin Lumberjacks of the SIJHL.
Good for him. He was spotted at the Kenai River camp at Champlin. Word has it Danny Fraga has made Brown Bears team.
