Re: NTDP Tryouts - 2012

Players from MN that will be at the tryout camp this year: Paul Bittner, Shane Gersich, Tyler Nanne, Jack Glover, Ryan Collins, Jack Walker, & Chase Perry I would have to think Chase Perry will have a good chance to be on the roster. This would not be good for Andover as there back up goalie (Junio...

Sad North Metro no longer has the numbers to field a team. At one time the BPYHA had a strong program...as recently as 2003-2004 made it to Bantam A State. Only positve is the NWSC will now be down to 10 teams (instead of 11) meaning 18 conference games and 7 non-con. (as opposed to 20 conf. games ...

hypothetically, is it possible he could come back to HM? Its possible, but I think unlikely. A lot of things would have to conspire to make that a reality. But I think the option is available Wouldn't that technically be considered a transfer? He was at Pioneer High in Ann Arbor correct? Seems to m...

maybe if the hermantown boys worked a little harder in the off season and didn't play such a weak schedule they would be able to compete? Kind of an ignorant comment, don't you think?

That doesn't shock me. Tyler originally didn't make it out to New York for Select 15's. Lou made a call and Tyler got an at large bid. Go figure. Tyler is a nice player but he gets opportunities he probably shouldn't If the reason was his Grandpa, then you'd think Louie or Vinni would have been giv...

Lechner is the best coach in Minnesota. Obviously based on the percentages of people picking against them hardly anyone gets that. Hill will be ready and in upset mode and give the Crimson all they can handle. They have won 10 in a row and this makes 11. Bring on an Eagan rematch on Friday night. T...

St. Paul Johnson was down 5-1 going into the third period. They could have rolled over and gave up. Instead they fought hard for everything possible and pulled out the win in OT. Blaine gave up 4 goals in the first 4 minutes. Thats embarrassing! No other way to sugar coat it than that. How many 5 m...

After that performance last night, even though given the circumstances of the first 5 minutes of the game...MG moves the puck too well for Hill, and I think they will be headed for the finals this year. Like East, MG has scoring depth that can come from almost anywhere, and a very unselfish team. Cr...

In high school it was definitely Centennial (the Gorowsky, Anderson, Flynn years 03,04) for me being from Blaine. That was also during the run of Holy Angels tournament runs for a few consecutive years, I'm not sure anyone liked seeing them get there every year

Parenteau would be a good example of a gritty junior player Lucia picked up. Although he put up a lot of points in the NAHL, he started in the Mnjhl, and now is a solid defensive defenseman for the gophs. I like watching his play and how he jumps into the play and gets the puck up the ice. Players l...

Not sure what the stronger vibe will be. I think the consensus is to have different representation of 5AA than Blaine - given the past 6-7 years of doing nothing at the Xcel. 3-9 at the Excel (in their current streak since 2005) with only 1 first round victory (in 2008) when they placed 3rd.
