what does the large number of 8th grade girls skating varsity or JV this year say about the state of girls hockey. Was there a lull in the numbers at the 9th and 10th grade level and a strong 8th grade class or is this an overall dip in girls hockey? Seems like more numbers coming up at U12 and U10 ...

Am I hearing you say that the Surge team is going to go up against the winner of Tier 1 to play for the entrance into the national championship? How will MN Hockey allow that? They create rules for Tier 1 and them allow a team to bypass that and create a "super" team? If they allow it, say goodbye t...

Some of the top 02's were told not to participate so they are missing some talent. Overall, however, pretty good hockey and good access to high level coaching. The program definitely has some kinks to work through. In particular, some associations have tryouts during the playoffs. Which could leave ...

It seemed to me to be much more political this year than in year's past. A lot of attention given to a player's "resume" and less to do with how they performed on the ice during tryouts. Our district had several players - all from the same team - miss one of the three original tryouts that made the ...

Not all the top 02's chose to play with the Machine Elite OS team. There is other top 02 talent in the metro that choose to play elsewhere. That said, the '02 team plays very well together and having 25 rostered makes sure their bench is never short.

I would agree that the talent and depth of the 12's is not as good as last year. Also see a big drop in the goalie talent from last year to this year.

I won't speak for them, but last year our U12 team was a top 5-8 team. We have an all non-parent, qualified coaching staff, our association has been very supportive of our girls program. We would be a top contender if all our 12U girls played in the program. Then again, maybe I am missing something ...

4 girls from our association alone playing peewees -- non on AA. It might be different if they were AA material, but it just hurts our girls program, the boys are resentful and creates rifts with the remaining girls. Very unfortunate.

This is one of the "power associations" you mentioned. All hours are the same and coaching is not an issue. Non parent coaches with top credentials -- actually as it looks now, the boys side may end up with parent coaching.

Again, these are girls making the 2nd or 3rd teams down in boys, not the top team. Yea, for the girls that are talented enough to skate with the boys at the top level, go ahead, but when they are playing B boys hockey I think it hurts the girls programs, and really doesn't benefit them either, for t...
