  1. Is this your predicted order of strength?
  2. Upon further review, Aviators may only have one team. Website shows a full roster for one of the two 16U teams but no roster for the other one and a 10 player roster for 14U.
  3. Huskies 2 teams. The folks who held that organization together for many years, their player aged out so who knows what will happen moving forward. Aviators 3 teams and no rink. They should probably fold the organization or have it folded for them.
  4. Isn't there also someone at the Preds, a prominent person, that is being sued for slander/defamation due to false accusations/statements made during the tryout time period?
  5. Is there a website with scores? Or is that too much to ask for a "great tournament" to provide?
  6. The event is mediocre at best and for a 3 games over 3 days event with what I believe are 12 minute periods for all age groups, how would you describe the desire to have 19 skaters?
  7. Please reference your own post above from July 4th in which your goal is to reach 19 players on each of these teams. That is more than 3 lines.
  8. The desperation to get more $$$$ is truly a sad day for hockey.
  9. If anyone saw the draft coverage when they interviewed Bill Daly then you saw him basically sum all of this up. He talked about the huge investment that the NHL undertook in USA hockey roughly ten years ago and how that has lead to what we saw this past weekend as far as the number of US players drafted in general and the NTP players in particular. What he didn't say but anyone can figure out is that this also means the NHL owns USA hockey. Not on paper, but they own them by telling them exactly how things will play out and how their amateur programs will do whatever they want whenever they want. This is the case in Buffalo, is slowly happening in Detroit (Little Caesar's) and well we all know first hand how it works here. I think Minnesota is probably the last bastion where hockey is still mostly non-corrupt.
  10. All great questions. One thing is for certain, this adds a lot more to the "discretion" of the officials and that is the last thing that is needed.
  11. It's not. It's in regard to excessive celebration of hits that leads to escalation of tempers, trash talk and trying to see who can blow up an opposing player harder than the other team.
  12. It's like working for some sort of Frankenstein made from a combination of Jerry Jones and Lavar Ball.
  13. Let's not kid ourselves, there's still the Elite players and the Black players divide. They may all be wearing the same helmets but the only thing that changes is that it doubles the number of players for everyone to talk smack on in MS and HS games as well as summer leagues. What will be very interesting is what happens in August/early September when half of the 2010 parents finally realize that their kid is on Team 2 when all along they were convinced he was the best player on the ice during the summer. It's become apparent that the smartest person to be involved this sport over the last 6 years was Tim Cook who got out after only one year.
  14. Entitlement, plain and simple. Parents and by association their kids who are the players, believe that they are entitled to everything under the sun. So few want their players to actually be coached, instead they want them to be coddled and told how wonderful they are. Like it or not, believe it or not, that sense of entitlement has risen exponentially ever since the word Elite has been thrust upon hockey players that haven't even had a pimple on their asses yet. Hard work? Discipline? Words that barely are uttered any longer in area rinks.
  15. Let's not forget the use of the Quebec players from Wyoming Seminary and the local players from Shadyside.
