Re: First report for next season

Bushy is a Good D...but not at the same level as the four D listed. Respectfully disagree. He was just about all of TRF's offense... from the blueline. Statistically, he performed just as well in the Elite League as three of those guys, which is our only apples to apples comparison. The fourth guy ...

Unreal! How many Brodzinskis are out there? And are they all D1 players? Are they all brothers? Is this unprecedented that so many brothers are D1 players? I suppose you have the Brotens.
There are only four Brodzinski's.
Five if you count their cousin Cooper in Grand Rapids.

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

Exiled One - does your plan also include some framework for how many teams an association should declare and what level they should declare them at? That, to me, is the root problem. As long as we continue to leave team declarations up to individual associations we will continue to have this kind o...

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

Essentially, in naming, that is the road the MSHSL went down in football. For your proposal just change it from 1-5 to A -AAAAA. So while officially being AAAAA is is just commonplace to call it 5A. Nobody gets their feelings hurt for being a B player. I'd be fine with that too. My only concern is ...

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

1) Regarding B level hockey: Recognize two levels of B, call them BB/B if you want to follow AA/A. Or, conversely, tell districts and associations to stop doing B1/B2 and only declare AA/A/B/C. 2) Regarding C level hockey: Create regional/state tourneys for Peewee and Bantam C. This might create a ...

The three USDT and college transfer will are pretty much a sure thing to be in Mad-town this fall. Some of these will be one and dones in...

Youth players in Brooklyn Center and Brooklyn Park are in the struggling North Metro association. Turn North Metro into "Osseo Park Center" and ...

On the prospect of moving the cut-off date to September 1st, I also encourage you to vote nay as I'm in favor of an August 1st cutoff, but September vs. Ju...

All just assumption on my part, what will really interest me is if they will be able to support both programs over the long haul.
My guess is they'll support the program until Chaz and Cruz graduate then consolidate.

Exiled - Was his loyalty questioned before he left SCSU? If not why should it be considered a long term issue? Fact is he inherited a terrible roster and some recruits that don't fit his coaching needs and he has every right to try and improve the situation. If he's bailing on recruits 2 years from...

I have a bone to pick with Motzko as a scorned SCSU fan, but many of my fellow Huskies are personally friends with Motzko and like him as a person. Regardless, he's ditching players who grew up dreaming of playing for the Gophers and replacing them with players who he talked out of their original co...
