this book is by far one of the greatest books i have ever read. Rosengren does a great job portraying the struggles and hardships the team had to go through to become champions. I love this book because it is so realistic and shows that being a hockey player isnt all fame and good times. Even if you are not a Jefferson fan (which i definitely am) I would still recommend reading this book at least once, its addicting. I have read it 4 times already and everytime i finish it in about 2 days. <br><br>PS. Congratulations to the Jefferson Jaguars 04-05 on a great season. Gotta love those Jags! <p></p><i></i>

Saterdalen came across as rather pompus in last nights round table. 10 division 1 kids is impressive but I believe Ikola had a team where every kid went on to college.<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :eek --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/im ... ns/eek.gif ALT=":eek"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

<br>Without Trebil pumping in pre-trained talent from Jefferson's youth program, Saterdalen would have been just another mediocre high school coach. <p></p><i></i>

Kodiakchew and Cliff77:<br><br>I know you guys are big Trebil fans, but you obviously do not know the history behind Jefferson Hockey. Kent Murphy who is now the Littleton Colorado peewee coach was the peewee "A" coach at Jefferson when Trebil was the Bantam coach and he won more championships then Trebil did. So if you want to talk about getting handed talent you might as well say that Murphy handed Trebil the talent because he had the boys first. Also Sats won three high school tournaments in a row (92 - 94 ) and Trebs did not win Bantam championships with those three classes.<br><br>I am also a fan of trebil and think he is a great coach, but it bothers me when people who do not know the history of the program make blanket statements about it. My son played for Kent Murphy, Greg Trebil and Tom Saterdalen, and they all contributed together to the success of the program. <p></p><i></i>
