World Junior roster / “Exposure” camps for Mites/Squirts/PeeWees

The 2022 World Junior roster is out now.

8 kids from Minnesota. (Only 1 from New England including the almighty Massachusetts.)

How is that even possible????

These kids never even played on “Elite” travel teams before they were Bantams.

They didn’t go to supposed “Exposure” camps before they were Bantams.

None of them went to the Q.

Only 1 went to the Brick.

Yet they are all playing in the USHL and have now been picked for the Team USA World Junior team.

WAKE UP EVERYONE and stop spending your time and money in all these stupid FOMO’s.

Where you should spend your money is on excellent skating and skills sessions. So if you want to give your bender a chance to excel in this sport find one near you and put your time and money where it may actually do something.

And let them enjoy their summers playing another sport or just being kids.

(Of course that doesn’t give you anything to brag about at parties but you’ll get over it.)

So do we pack up and move to MN - weather sucks there and people are too nice which would get old. The midwest bias for the usa selection stuff is beyond annoying. The two best players on u18s are mass kids. The best kid on 17s is a mass kid. If USA hockey was based in Mass it would be the opposite as far as numbers and all those nice people in MN would be *****ing all the time.

It is really not that hard. MN kids work on farms, MA kids work on nothing. MN kids wake up in their 50K house with hopes for something more than school and farm. MA kids wake up in 500K house and dream of the latest yeezys and vinyard vines while being safe spaced and comforted as they identify who they truly are. MN kids carry their equipment while MN kids have their dad ROLL their bag for them.

Years ago Sports Illustrated (maybe espn) did an article about a small county down south that produced some incredible wide receivers and defensive backs. Turns out there was a local farmer who would pay the kids to catch rabbits in his fields by hand. Poor kids were helping to feed their families while training for the nfl without even knowing it.

No, trump won't fix this, and yes biden sucks too.

I don't think there's anything to fix here. MA doesn't need to be better than MN in terms of hockey. I say let MN have hockey.

MA has the best healthcare, education system, loads of tech/biopharma/finance jobs, you name it. I look at some of the kids on my son's hockey team who have multi-millionaire parents and daddy so wants them on the next 'elite' team for his ego. I kind of don't get it. They already have YOUR money not to mention a job at your company someday. Why do they have to be a hockey star too?

There's nothing but farms and farmboy hockey players in Minnesota? You know they have cities right? :joy: Like even a couple really big ones!
