David Eddy was far from being the only reason Woodbury was good last season or even the previous season.

Good goaltending, guys stepping up when not expected to -- such as Mike Nelson in the 3AA finals -- and the coaching of Wes Bolin.
Every time I watched Woodbury last year I was impressed with the play of Walker Hyland. I think he stood out as a sophomore on the blueline.

If I'm not mistaken, Walker Hyland was also named to the honorable mention all-conference team last year.

Actually I think he was all-conference.

Hyland was good but also had a fair amount of penalties as well. He had a couple of really critical ones in the Benilde game that completely turned the tide.

He did have some critical penalties, but I think (or maybe hope) that had quite a bit to do with inexperience/nerves, given that he was a sophomore playing in his first ever state tourney and was also the best defenseman on the team.

yes i think so. Woodbury and CDH usually make it to their section championship, if not play eachother. and I think White Bear will make a run this year. Not that they are a sleeper, because they always to pretty good, but I think they will surprise alot of people coming down the stretch. Roseville also makes good runs in the playoffs, and if it comes down to a WBL vs HM game for section 4AA i think an upset is stirring.

i dont think im a dumbass for thinking white bear and woodbury dont have tough schedules. playing moundsview, forest lake and park for a hard schedule...oh and dont forget those hastings raiders doesnt sound to hard...and CDH is only giong to have one half way decent line, they have no depth. wbl and woodbury have solid players all over the roster. we're not playing football here pucknutz.(cdh,moundsview,woodbury all top 7 in state for football) this is hockey and last time i checked wbl and woodbury WILL have easier schedules than usual

The only team with a legit shot @ the title is WBL. CDH is a group of private school pansies and the Woodbury Royals are pretenders - all their good kids transfer (are recruited) by Hill. The rest of the pack would not contend for the A title. We'll talk in March and see who's right.

I guess we wait. But, based on what I have seen with these teams from thier youth hockey days I would say Woodbury and WBL have a good shot at GETTING to STATE. I think it will be Edinas year but this will be one of the best tournaments top to bottom. This age group is one of the most talented groups the State has had in a long time.


All are contenders.
Section 2AA Edina
Section 3AA CDH/Woodbury
Section 4AA Hill/WBL
Section 5AA Centennial
Section 6AA Eden Prairie/Minnetonka
Section 7AA Duluth East/Grand Rapids
Section 8AA Moorhead


Section 3AA
Woodbury hasn't lost anyone from this group of bantams, very good coaching
CDH has tremendous athletes and grooms winners

Section 4AA
WBL is on a mission, all of them sticking around says something considering they hate the coach so much

Section 7AA
Flake will surprise someone in sections, not make it but I could them upsetting someone this year

Not even gonna give Mattson a chance? Come on now, we saw what Burnsville almost did with one line and a hot goaltender that night. And no shot for Roseau either? Youre losing all your credibility fast my friend. Section 1 not sending a team to the X this year? This guy's washed up... :roll:
Stay Classy, Minnesota.

I think what he means is, there are some really good teams this year.

AHA isn't deep enough, Mattson can't do it on his own.

Roseau had to big of a turnover.

Burnsville what they did and what they almost did are 2 different things.

A. I understand that was his point and I was helping him add in other contenders, since that was the word he used.

B. My Burnsville point was they weren't deep at all, like AHA, and just about won that game. So, to not put AHA in the "contenders" category, i believe, is not right.

C. Barnes+Hendrickson vs Mattson and a few Reillys? AHA might have a better shot.

D. Define turnover.

E. Roseau will always be in contention as far as I'm concerned

F. To get back on topic, Woodbury's got a solid team but lost a few to many key players to repeat. Go Bears?
Stay Classy, Minnesota.

Newsflash- Hastings isn't going to be as bad as you all think they are going to be this season. I'm not saying top three, but they will have some talkability this year.

Roseville made their team selections after just one day of tryouts. They had to cut a few goalies, but everyone else who tried out appeared to make JV or Varsity. They had less than 40 kids trying out. This surprises me because I had always heard they had a very strong youth program.

I'll second that one. The only thing people will be talkng about is "what has happened to that program?" Welsh has single handidly turned that program upside down. Only time will tell if he can manage to not lose 15-20 straight.
