Worst use of talent in HS hockey...

Whether it be bad systems, poor use of talent, etc...

Who do you think is under-utilizing their talent or miss-using it... half way through... any thoughts?

Re: Minnesota Article on Eden Prairie

i lost a lot of respect for the boys high school hockey team at EP when CM played there. They were up in Cloquet playing us. I stand right above the visiting team when they are lined up for the national anthem. They were joking, snickering and spitting on the ice during the anthem. I couldn’t belie...

Re: Might be an ugly season...

I've said it before..Nowadays parents/kids are so wrapped up in Skill they forget that if you can't compete you probably won't last long at the next level. The problem is refs, (ie MN Hockey/USA Hockey), is slowly taking the physical side of this sport out of the game. I see way to many whistles wh...

Re: Might be an ugly season...

So some of the refs there were also from MN... and guessing the refs dont only do HS games but youth as well. So.. you should be able to extrapolate from there.. even the Jr. coaches and scouts said they are seeing the same issues in and out of MN and at all levels... also... title was... MIGHT be a...

Might be an ugly season...

Watched over a half dozen games last weekend... officiating is all grossly over the place. Issues I saw, any hit where a player was hit hard, and cleanly, was penalized, especially if the other team or crowd "ohhh and ahh". They would give a rough, elbow or interference. Most puck carriers hit were ...

Re: Watch NTDP vs Elite League this weekend

Chaz ended up with 5 and JJ 3 Final 17–5 as Team NE with a tough day for D and Gs Lucius with 5, and not a single one from outside of 10 feet. 4 of 5 within 3 feet. Stands next to the net and shovels in rebounds (which is certainly a skill all its own). Expends very little energy; rarely gives a hi...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

My $0.02... the MSP team D was soft, you have to be able to slow a team down or be a speed bump... D did neither with any regularity... think it's another example of grabbing the kids that jump up and sacrifice D for scoring. No physicality on the back end. I get everyone wants to showcase skill, bu...

The focus is on points... even on the D side. I have heard on more than one occasion that player X didn't have enough points to warrant HSEL consideration.... but go back and see how many guys are playing with (especially forwards) with less than 20 points during the HS year... just saying....
