-- The best player development seems to be happening outside of Minnesota in juniors.
As opposed to where players from other states develop?* This point really makes very little sense.

--* Youth hockey programs are developing players everywhere these days.* There are now top tier youth hockey teams all across the country.* I have lived in California since the mid 80's and have seen tremendous growth here.
The population of California is 37,691,912 and last year they had 22,305 registered hockey players.* Minnesota has a population of 5,344,861 and last year had 54,325 registered players.* Enough said.

-- Minnesota seems to barely support one NHL team.** California has three NHL teams and all three teams are ahead of the Minnesota team in the standings and all three are very successful financially
Again, look at the population difference.* Your arguments are getting weaker and weaker.

Last night I went to see the Kings/Sharks game and the place was filled (18,000 fans).* Most noticable was the large number of youth hockey players at the game.** Also in attandance at the game was the LA Selects Pee Wee team.* The LA Selects had just won the legendary Quebec International Pee Wee Hockey Tournament.* The tournament featured 110 teams from 14 countries and is considered the World Championships in Pee Wee hockey.
And this is proof of what?* Seriously, getting more laughable by the moment.

These 12 year old California born and raised "World Champions", will be playing junior hockey soon, and they will be getting college scholorship offers soon. Good thing the Fighting Sioux do have a recruiting pipeline to California.** Do the Gophers recruit the best players from California?
Why do you need a recruiting pipeline to California when you just landed the Top 3 players in the 1995 birth year (Hudson Fasching, Gabe Guertler, and Taylor Cammarata) per Chris Peters of USofHockey.* Cammarata is 8th in the USHL in scoring as a 16-year old.* By the way, UND went after and lost out to all three recruits.* I sure hope that California pipeline is producing J

Yes, I'm sure all 12 year old kids are thinking "Hey, lets go to the middle of the country where there is a virtual wasteland and choke on the national stage year after year. Sounds like fun!"

No one cares.

Apparently the guy I responded to does. Or did you not notice that he started the discussion? I take it by your choice not to respond to him, but only to me, that you agree with him. Very telling.

I don't recall saying anything about curing cancer. Perhaps you should reread my post.

Apparently you do. You keep responding. I was simply replying to a discussion started by someone else. If you don't like the conversation, I'd suggest taking it up with the originator or simply ignoring our discussion.

I know I did. Then I went to Kansas State, and found out they didn't have a D1 hockey program!

If this were a Laverne & Shirley episode this is where Lenny & Squiggy would appear. Hello. :D

......and as injury riddled as the Sioux are, and with 7 freshman playing.......AND playing what......4-5 walkon's? I agree, the Sioux should not be considered a favorite.
Wow, even when it's a dry spring with no risk of flooding, you Nodak fans continue to sandbag.

UND has been on fire pretty much the whole second half and won the WCHA tournament, securing a #1 seed in the process. Regardless of the content of their roster, the results are what speak the loudest - and those results say UND is the favorite by any reasonable objective measure.

Is it true we have to grow up and talk hockey after midnight on Wednesday? If the first game is on Saturday, it seems like we should get an extension til at least late afternoon Thursday. There are so many boneheaded insults and boasts yet to be made, and this will be the last chance for Sioux and Gopher fans to really bond this year (unless either of them wins the banner, Parise forbid, which would take us into July at least).

Us BU fans are learning the differences of a western flame fest. Fewer personal attacks than the east coast ones, maybe we're just closer together so more opposing posters know each other. Will conclude findings later.
