    Prospective Sioux Recruits

    You are a very knowledgeable person and I appreciate your posts, but I think your impression about the strength of the AJHL it is not completely accurate. It may not be the USHL or the BCHL, but its a strong league, much better than the MJHL or the SJHL. UND has had many quality alumni from the AJHL, including Aaron Dell, Matt Frattin, Corban Knight, Gary Valk, Dixon Ward, Troy Murray, Perry Berezan, Rick Zapernick, etc. There have also been very recent good players from the AJHL, including Mason Raymond, Justin Fontaine and Dylan Olsen from UMD, Joe Colborne of Denver and Rene Borque, not to mention former greats like Dany Heatley, Mike Comrie, Mark Messier and the Sutter brothers. I have no problem with UND recruiting players from the AJ. It is probably underrated.

    Early Departures 2018

    That is one of my biggest recruiting questions. Many of the Hockey East schools and ECHA schools recruit western Canada hard, and also get some Minnesotans. Why doesn't UND recruit Ontario much or even out East? Is it because of the competition for recruits, economics, or just the fact that the Junior A leagues are not as strong?

    University of North Dakota 2018-19 Season

    Why post this where the players and their parents can see this? They are all important. Rhett Gardner is a great defensive center and great at faceoffs. Christian Wolanin is probably the best offensive defenseman in the NCHC and a great leader. Shane Gersich played very well the 2nd half of the year and his speed and skill is hard to replace. Colton Poolman is one of the best defenseman in the NCHC and is very underrated. I hope they all come back. If they do, watch out for UND next season.

    Roseau plays AA, not A. Warroad plays single A. Roseau is in the same conference with Bemidji, Moorhead, Brainerd, etc.

    I get where you are coming from in terms of bagging on SCSU. I don't like that any more than I like Gopher fans bagging on UND and others. It is arrogant and petty. However, to say that your program is better or on par with UND based upon one series played in St. Cloud this year is not only premature, but a little short-sighted. There is a lot of season left, and many things can happen between now and the end of the year. It would not surprise me if SCSU is still standing at the end of the year, but I wouldn't be crowing about how great you are on another team's message board. When you do that, you deserve to get chastised. I don't speak for everyone, but as a long time UND hockey fan, I do respect SCSU's program, and I can understand how high end recruits can choose SCSU because there are so many factors that a recruit considers. Facilities and tradition are obviously important, but style of play, how the recruit fits into the system, playing time, location and many other considerations factor into that decision. SCSU's recent success (did I mention that UND beat SCSU 5 of 6 last season and won the national championship the year before?) is also a reflection of just how many good hockey players are available at the D1 level.
