  1. Shortly after Ben Blood made his commitment to UND, Hammy went on GPL and called him a "Casey Bohrer type player". I tried to call him out on it, but apparently I didn't know anything.
  2. I went to watch Gersich play today at the Victoria Rec Center. He's everything they say he is. Good skater (great breakaway speed), slick play making ability, good hands, wins battles in the corners, and plays the center position well. He's also a good two player, plays the body and he was in on the penalty kill. Not sure if it has to do with the commitment, but there was a bounty on him from the East Ridge team today. There were two roughing penalties (dirty hits) that left him on the ice for a little awhile and there could have been another tripping call.
  3. This was from SiouxForever's post: ...I think UND has better everything all around, obviously The Ralph. I think coaching staff now with Berry helping the D out, is better than Portland's too. What won this kids selection is the brainwashing and the NHL grind schedule comparison with the WHL's schedule. We'll see how he develops throughout the WHL. I feel, no question he'll have a huge impact at the World Juniors this year. We shall see... I thought he was quoting Jones in the post. So my logic was that if UND had everything better all around, then why go to Portland? I didn't realize that it was SiouxForever's comment and not Seth's.
  4. Based on those comments it makes you wonder if money was been shoved under the table.
  5. USA Hockey released the roster for the U-17 Select Team that will play at the U-17 Five Nations Tournament in August, http://usahockey.cachefly.net/Media/2012_FiveNationsRoster.pdf
  6. USA Hockey released the roster for the U18 Select Team that will play in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August, http://usahockey.cachefly.net/Media/2012_IvanHlinka.pdf
  7. I watched Johnson at the Lincoln Stars camp a few weeks ago at Ridder. Great skater, good snap shot, but not the best hands.
  8. National Select 17's have been going on this week, you can follow it here, http://www.usahockey.com/Tournament/TournamentStandingTab.aspx?EventID=2906&AgeDivisionID=2100
  9. For anyone in the Twin Cities area, the Lincoln Stars are having their invite camp this weekend at Ridder Arena. If they run it similar to Sioux Falls and Fargo, Luke Johnson and Paul LaDue should be there since it would include current players. I couldn't find a schedule anywhere online, but they usually run scrimmages and games all day. I'll probably be down there on either Saturday/Sunday or possibly both.
  10. USHL Entry Draft starts at 4 today, you can follow it on the USHL website.
  11. Being a UND alumni is not and should not be a requirement for the job. They take the best candidate that they deem fit for the position.
  12. People always want too think the worst when it comes to these situations. It could be something as simple as wanting a d-man to coach the blue line. I don't believe small town gossip, but even if the affair were true, this is Cary's personal life and shouldn't play into his job situation. This staff has been together awhile and maybe Hakstol just wants to shake things up a bit.
  13. USHL Futures Draft starts at 6, this is the 96 birth year. You can follow it here, http://draft.ushl.com/
  14. The Target Center isn't the best hockey arena by any means, but I think it makes sense to have it there over anywhere else (at least during the years the B10 is at the X). Omaha wouldn't be a bad place, but you can't tell me that you will draw more fans in Omaha than in Minneapolis.
  15. The High Performance 16 and 17 Final 54's are this weekend at the Plymouth Ice Center. This is to decide who goes to the national tournament in July, so there is some pretty good talent here. I should be down both days depending on the NHL playoff schedule. You can find the schedule and rosters here, http://www.mnhockeyhub.com/page/show/505513?referrer_id
