so....i am a bit concerned that USA hockey won't give the bids to all 4 programs in MA, thinking that is a lot from one district...but went back and looked and in 2016, the ONLY time Minnesota participated in Nationals, they had 4 teams in the U19 divisions....so should not be a problem. Precedent already exists! If the ranking supports it should be a no brainer. (lowest MA team is ranked 14 and there are 3 Minnesota elite teams above them not playing so that puts them at 11). as long as the favorites win the tournaments they should all be in.
