"Allowed" that on their rosters? I did not know that Tier 1 teams have rules that limit where they can be from. SSM might be the best at recruiting but I believe that there are lots of teams that have girls from several different states.
There are 2 high schools (1 public and 1 private) whose rinks are about 3 miles from each other in the SW suburbs in Minneapolis that could combine and probably give SSM a pretty good game...most likely a better game than Belle or Mission or anyone else could. Even better would be just combining the girls from Edina that are playing for EHS and other privates and they could probably make the Tier 1 semis.
Feels a little like sour grapes to me. SSM is legit...at least at U19.
