Interesting that Tyler Nanne is invited and not Dylan malmquist.

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.

My prediction is that Tyler will commit to the Gophers next fall
during the elite league season!

It could be because the NTDP occasionally takes guys that can be flexible on position.

If the reason was his Grandpa, then you'd think Louie or Vinni would have been given the same opportunity to tryout when they were that age. But they didn't.

Not to defend nanne, but he was good at the 102's last summer and should have been selected to go to new York to start with. But this season malmquist has shown he may be better. As for the others, they either have the stats to get an invite, or dads or grandpas that know the right people.

Vinni can play hockey. There is no question about that. The Nanne boys are both quite suspect. Argue with me all you want. It's the truth.

Everybody has a right to an opinion. I'm not here to try to change yours. Not worth the effort when it really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

Couldn't agree more. Louie could possibly be a D1 player after a year or 2 of juniors, but the Gophers is a stretch. He's good, but would fit in better at a smaller program.

Nanne was good at 102's in St. Cloud last summer?

R u kidding me?

I was there and he played poorly and looked disinterested.

Kudos to the people picking the final 20 to go to New York for
not originally picking Nanne. He played poorly all week.

Like I said before, Nanne is a nice player but gets some opportunities
because of his name.

I hope he tears it up tonite versus BSM!

Parents want to give a kid a leg up on the competition.

That is what I have heard from several people including those around the Edina program on why Walker was sent home from Austria.

Correct, I do not know whether it is prescribed or not I would assume the same thing that USA would not invite back if it were not prescribed.

Is Hurley Edina too old for NTDP even though he's a Sophomore?
Zerban Elk River?
Jaremko Elk River?
Copa Blaine?
Lau Blaine?
Iverson Breck?
Spinner EP?
Snuggerud EP?

Wondering if some of these guys were not chosen, or too old?

Go to the wrestling board, the Guillotine, I post there sometimes, read on there and you will see just how sane hockey people are in this state in comparison.

Wrestling has has 2 programs in the last 3 years sanctioned for recruiting (1 twice) yet that is OK because it's for the kids. They have a team that relies on outstaters more than Shattuck, gets more transfers than any private school hockey team. Has a bigger problem with transfers and recruiting of middle school aged kids than hockey ever will. Parents that hold kids back 2 -3 years just so they can be good wrestlers. Has a kid throw a chair at an opponent and hit him in the head but that's just kids being kids. The list is near endless and gets quite comical because all this accepted behavior from the wrestling community at large.

HGH is nothing

Is Bittner really that good? I know he went to NY last summer. I have not seen anything special out of him. i know he has size and has some pull with his dad. How many of these picks are in because of politics. Tyler Nanne was without question. Dixon Bowen?

He's pretty good. Is a multi sport athlete, coaches kid, good size, and still considered raw talent...lots of things NTDP likes.

Walker did take HGH but a legit doctor prescribed it to him. it was not steroids so i don't think its as big of a deal. he was just a smaller kid who was given it to get bigger. Kid has tons of talent though, i remember him playing in squirts and he was great and he still is to this day. he is better than Malmquist if you ask me. you could also make a argument for malmquist here too though but a lot of his success came from Hurley

"Walker did take HGH but a legit doctor prescribed it to him."

Legit? Is there other doctors prescribing to MN youth athletes that are something else? In this case was it given for health reasons or athletic gain? "given it to get bigger" He looked normal size in the state tourney. How long had he been off it and how long does it stay in the system? Stuff must work. Do you think this doctor has a bunch more clients today?
Was a duster and paying for it?????

i do not know much about HGH with how long it stays in the system or anything about it for that matter but Walker was very small all the way up till probably this year. as a 8th grader in bantams he was pretty small just like his brother Bennie who was small untill 10th grade, and because he was small then as a 9th grader he played JV. i think the family just should have waited alittle longer for him to grow since he is around that age

BSM soph d-man Jack Glover must tryout for the U-17 team in Ann Arbor but it's considered a formality.


Doesn't surprise me...thought he and Jack Walker were the most impressive young D in the State Tourney...Glover already has a AA title under his belt...seems like a logical next step (if he plans on making an NHL career) out of hockey. Best of luck to him going forward.
