Didn't Edina have line? three kids Budish being one that played three sports not long ago ?? They couldn't have skated year round. I think all three moved on to "the next level". Yes I understand not the norm, still possible.


You are correct.
Everyone should google Adam Carlson from the Edina Junior Gold A, NA3HL,
NAHL, Mercyhurst University and now the top Washington Capital's
Minor League team in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

He was cut from his high school team twice and was still noticed.....

It is IMPOSSIBLE to play High School Hockey in MN in this day and age and not get noticed if you're good.

Co-op with Gentry, DeLaSalle, Minnehaha and St. Agnes. I think in standings they are listed under Minnehaha.

Looks like Gentry Academy has a few younger teams at the Tier 1 level and that the program is growing. Am I correct that even though their 03 team that is ranked in the top 10 in the county, they cannot be a national bound team? Earlier posts seemed to reflect that and was wondering if things have changed.

Is plan for Gentry to field a standalone HS team that plays a Minnesota Varsity schedule when the Bantams are older?

Actually, this example is the exact OPPOSITE of being noticed. This guy had to work his arse off and go through the hardest possible road there is to get where he got because no one was noticing him in high school. He was dismissed by his varsity team, he was overlooked by every USHL, NAHL and Tier 2 Canadian Jr team out there. He had to settle for going to a pay or play NA3HL option where he finally did well enough there that an NAHL team allowed him to go to their main camp to tryout and he made it through their tryouts. From there folks started to notice him. But stop with this nonsense of "if you are good enough they will find you" or the whole "you will get noticed in high school" blah blah blah. It's nonsense. Either that or you and I have WAY different definitions of what it means to "be noticed" or found or whatever. Grinding your way up the food chain is not being noticed, it's literally you the player just never giving up and finding ways to get there.

I have personally spoken to several D1 coaches and dozens of junior hockey coaches, guess what they all tell me to a "T".... They all tell me that there are "way too many really good hockey players in North America now and we have no way of seeing or finding the overwhelming majority of them. We have relationships with certain coaches and teams and scouts and we rely on them to tell us who is out there, but the reality is there are tons of kids being overlooked or not noticed at all because they are not in those coaches or advisors networks". Yes even the USHL and NAHL take kids all the time that aren't remotely as good as some other players purely because of who they know and not how good they are. It's not jealousy, it's not rhetoric, it's reality and the coaches readily admit it because they don't have time to scout themselves most of the time.

Are the best, of the best, of the best usually found and on the radar, yep, but all the rest of the kids who make up 85% of the rosters at the highest level, those kids are there partly because they are decent hockey players but almost more so because of who they knew.

It feels a bit to me like you're trolling, but I'm waiting for the Wild to play so I'll bite - you're telling me that in your expert opinion, 85% of the players at the highest levels are there because of who they knew...unlike the top 15% who are there because of pure talent?

Even as a newbie, I call complete and utter BS on this.
