I would think he was a somewhat developed hockey player. Maybe You feel a kid needs to be an NHL Allstar to be considered developed. And thats cool di...

I've got no problem pointing fingers at any adult acting this way. Coaches and refs included. I do think we are all responsible for our own behavior, and a bad referee or coach is no excuse for ones own child like behavior.

On a side note: I think the '99 class will be one of the better ones our state will produce. 2000's by a long shot. So deep, so much talent from all over the metro. Including a possibility of 3-4 "phenom"-type players at that level. And another with a 2000 son... goodness people ... I even italiciz...

The AA/A model just reinforces that Edina/Maple Grove etc. are the best and will always win. A truly balanced system would open championship hopes to many more associations and maintain the top level of play we have today. This hits the nail on the head. Which Bo summarizes here. Just think of the ...

No, the level the Cisar's played did NOT hurt their development. They are able to compete with the best HS players in the State. Yet their TEAM can't because the talent level of the entire team is not equal to the Cisar's. And their teammates did not magically get better playing with the Cisar's. I...
