Not that impressed considering there are a lot of big names on that list. A good number of Mr Hockey finalists a/o guys who put up huge numbers in high school. Its suprising to see how many of those guys were at the 5-7 goal range 45-50 games in as 19 year olds in a USHL that continues to bring in 16-17 yr old kids.
Not one point per game player from Minnesota yet guys from other states are putting up 60-70-80-and even 90 points. The scoring leader is from plano texas and the other big scorers are out of georgia, florida, and a 140 lb high school kid from new jersey? It's kind of embarrassing to me and it shows why players who play in tougher leagues in high school are much more prepared for college. Maybe thats why our big names out of high school like bjugstad and Brock Nelson took a full season to get used to the WCHA and a player out of Las Vegas wins the WCHA rookie of the year award while Minnesota trained players don't even get any consideration. Did I read that California had more kids invited to the World Jr tryout than Minnesota did? Well at least we had more than texas, but only by a few.

Maybe they just aren't promoting the "right" Minnesota kids to the USHL?

Interesting post BBB. I've been thinking about holes in our model as well. Watching 19 year old players in the NHL playoffs got me thinking about what makes them different than our 19 old players. The young men aren't any different, as capable young athletes, but their development paths were. Canadian 14 year old gets drafted and starts their development in the Canadian Junior Leagues. I know hockey is the Canadian National sport and some of our best athletes are focused on football and basketball but something else is happening during the years from 15-18 that we're not duplicating.

It's not the 15-18 years, It's the 6-18 years.

Our kids play 30+ games at the Squirt level. Honeybaked plays 70+ with scrimmages at the Squirt level. How much harder is it for the kid playing half the games to get to an elite level?

I remember you getting very vocal when I brought up topics about more options like Tier 1. Is the everyone's equal, community (communism) based Hockey, representing all of our kids well?

I think this is dead-on. If the problem were at the high school age group, we should see the players who bolt for juniors putting up way more goals than those who stick with the traditional MN HS model. We really don't see that.

As a coach I can promise you that increasing the amount of games is not what will increase skill. Only properly run practices can do that.

Take a very skilled pond Hockey player and try putting them in a regulation indoor game for the first time .... Lost is the word. Yes, you can "practice" 2 on 3's and breakouts in practice, but nothing compares to real game experience. A mix of both with plenty of games is essential.

Take 16 kids and give them 100 hrs of practice and 25 games...
Take the same 16 kids and give them 100 hrs of practice and 60 games a Winter. I'll bet the farm that they'll seperate quickly(I promise Wink ).

Probably why them fancy streetball players aren't able to play Division 1 or NBA basketball.. They've never learned the full court - team game.

I take it that your teams play no games then since they're a waste of time??

I said that Properly run practices are the way to improve SKILL. Not hockey sense. I agree a balance is necessary, but there are far too many people who think that Playing a game everyday is better than practicing.

Diddo, right on. What is better traveling in car and putting over 4-5 hours into a game that skate 15 to 20 minutes and touch the puck for less than a minute. Just think about it 5 minutes in the driveway puck handling is better than a single game for improving puck handling skills. Those are the facts.

Most if not all the great players from years past were rink rats not travel checkbook hockey rats of today.

Yes, and full ice games are going to be the thing to get a sense for the full ice game.

Interesting subject...

What has held Minnesotans back from being elite scorers in the NHL? The practice hours are on par with the Canadians.. The climate is just as cold if not colder than most of Canada..

The one difference is that the Canadians, at minimum, quadruple our kids in the number of games over their youth. Idea Idea Idea Idea

Practice a ton and step into a full five on five game for the first time at eighteen.....

Practice a ton and step into their twelve hundreth game as a eighteen year old.

Competition is a big key.

It's a problem when non Hockey states(tier 1) are putting out higher caliber players than frigid MN. Rolling Eyes

Yes we had a good # of Minnesotan's. A back up goalie, Lee. Gardiner was the only one who went through the whole MN hs system but he was a late bloomer in a major way. The 3 forwards all got out of MN hs hockey asap. Stepan to SSM, captained the team. Kristo and Schreoder were the other two. My point is that the guys from other states are forced to play against 19 and 20 yr olds when they are in high school happen to benefit from it. I guess it was alarming that when USA hockey decided to offer invitations to the world jr camp, maybe the top 50 players under 20, that they invited more Cali kids than MN.
Did you watch the tournament this year? Our golden boys, Rau and Bjugstad absolutely tore it up against the garbage teams and were nowhere to be found the other games.
I looked up the stats. Rau against the better teams (Canada, Fin, Czech, Switz) 0 g 0 a 0 pts. Bjugstad against those teams. 0 g 0 a 0 pts. Maybe our players aren't as great as we think?
Stepan was the tournament MVP during the last gold medal. The only other gold medal USA won Parise happened to be the captain and MVP as well. It kind of makes you wonder how dominant MN could be against other states if our top high school kids played in a tougher league. My guess is that we would make up more than 10% of the world jr tryout camp.

We are doing ourselves no favors by changing the rules here in Minnesota because of a single incident and also not allowing checking until Bantams.........we will fall further and further behind these other states who play tier 1 hockey.......but we will at least feel good about ourselves with the rule changes.........!!!

6 Minnesotans named to USA junior select team. Nice jump for players that haven't donned the Red, White and Blue previously. Congrats!

Jake Randolph absolutely shredding the USHL right now. On a torrid pace. This kid can play. Definitely an underrated player. UNO got a good one there.
