Close..Bottom line is that the kids there are unknown, no PR machine getting there names out. There are good kids everywhere but the ones that make it start the PR rolling at 12 or younger. Watched a kid that I haven't seen in years just as good if not better than most of the kids there and hes never going to get a look, you know why? No PR for the kid. Yes he is at prep now and will put up good numbers but its to late, nobody knows who he is. There was 1 D1 commit there, nice kid, good family, wasn't even the best player on his team never mind the other 3 teams but got the PR machine rolling at 12, got in touch with the right people and look where he is now. Very sad, but very true in todays game!! Now, with schools offering an additional year to seniors, the kids at this event would need to wait until they are 22 to have a shot and that is very unlikely.

This post is accurate to some extent. Agree on the PR machine and how much promotion goes into these kids. Don't necessarily agree that these kids will not get college looks. Yes, there was a D1 commit there, blended in like most of the 03 D1 commits from what I could tell watching on the computer. Very few,especially at the 03 level would have jumped out if they were thrown in on one of these 4 teams. At this point, you have to hope that your 02,03 is a late bloomer and is on the way up and not staying flat or even worse, going the wrong way. These are the kids that coaches will want to watch and project out their potential. Lots of the early puberty kids became household names in the rinks and some people bought into how good they were from the PR machine. My money is on a kid that continues to improve and is determined to reach his goals and busts his butt to reach whatever the goal is, even if it is at 22.

Pretty interesting post, could only find partial rosters, but regardless, I imagine the D1 commit dominated the play and didn't "fit in" as he is also on NHL Central Scouting list. Not USHL or NCAA, we are talking the National Hockey Leagues scouting list. If there were better kids there than I lose all respect for all of these "scouting" agencies and it is clear that the better PR will always pay off. Again, we are talking the NHL, the top league in the entire world.

According to NEHJ there was some good DIII talent there. Cool that he can watch kids play 2 games and know they have no shot at D1. He’s great
I can watch a kid do 15 minutes of skills and tell you they have no chance at D1.
Well your an idiot
NZ and IM commented on every kid at the MCDC. My impression of his article is that he sees opportunity and potential in every kid! We're talking about 05s to 02s not 99s.
Yes everyone there could possibly play D1.

My kid went and said it was a great chance for him to skate with some strong players. I thought it was short money to be on the ice with quality kids and terrific coaches.

I'll let you know how he does, 4 years from now!
Did the coaches actually coach? If they did then its worth it, from what I understand they just refed some scrimmages.
My kid enjoyed it. Asked him about coaches and he told me there was a practice on Monday for 75 minutes with a NESCAC coach ( unmarked of course) and Cunniff ran the other group on the other sheet simultaneously. Short money for two good competitive days. Anxious to have him attend the next one

What does "unmarked of course" mean?

Re: PLPG

I find it amazing that people are still talking about a skate that took place 3 weeks ago.

Do you really dislike the guy that much that you can't let it go? What is left to discuss? The guy sucks, the coaches sucked, the kids sucked, the D1 commit sucked, the 03's sucked, the 04's sucked, the ice sucked, the Zamboni sucked, the PR sucked, the parking lot sucked...
