    At least Seattle teams play in a league, Portland just does tournaments.

    Iíve gotten used to the travel. This spring/summerís agenda includes Boston, Buffalo and New Hampshire. His AAA league spans from Connecticut to Maryland but then again, Charlie McAvoy, Sonny Milano and Keith Kincaid played in his league so itís a pretty good level for non-Minnesota and non-Boston area leagues.

    That's pretty crazy. How does the 10K break down....do you have to pay a lot just to play?

    He plays for 3 different teams but his main club team is about $4k and his 2 other teams are about $2k but then you have travel costs and other incidentals.

    There is that too.

    And at some point, one needs to wonder, how much of this is for fun anymore?

    That’s a helluva commitment, Krust. But, if it’s truly a good experience then that’s great.

    I don’t think there are any “cheap” sports if it gets competitive... the coaches, camps, travel...

    My kids are younger, so we’re only just dabbling in competitive sports. Not sure we’re cut out for it yet. The time commitment is significant.

    Who was "impressed" by his 7 assists? Name one person.

    Mete "impressed" coming out of camp... and overall his defensive game was decent for a 19 year old rookie... but nobody was impressed with his 7 assists. If anything I'd say everyone was disappointed with his offensive output.

    Mete has the advantage of not being a vastly overpaid veteran clown. He had a decent rookie year, but he still has a lot to prove.

    I never saw that. In fact I find it hard to believe someone claims that Mete is currently a top pairing dman. Even then... it's still pretty dishonest to say "some people...."

    If someone thinks he will develop into that I think they have lofty expectations... but it's possible. He's far more likely to be a 2nd pairing guy.

    It was in a GDT. Somewhere around game 20 or so. I remember asking if he scored yet and people saying that he was a 19 year old kids, habs53 specifically saying he's a top pairing defenseman.

    The he's 19 argument forgetting that sergachev and mcavoy were around the same age.

    That's more dishonest than I thought. How could someone have been impressed by his 7 assists 20 games in?

    Nobody is arguing that Mete is the same level as those guys.

    For sure Mete would have played in London this year if he was with just about any other organization. That's how bad the D was.

    The reason they kept Mete all year is the same reason they kept playing Joe Morrow crazy minutes over and over: They needed puck moving d-man after getting rid of Markov and Beaulieu and we had the single worst assembly of LHD in the entire NHL. Name me one team that had a worst assembly than Alzner, Mete, Morrow, Schlemko, Davidson, Jerabek, Valiev, Reilly playing on the left side. Shit, I'm not sure there's more than one real NHL caliber player amonst the whole 'lot of them.

    Morrow's probably 8th or 9th on Winterpeg's depth chart, Alzner I don't believe is nearly as bad as his play demonstrated, Schlemko's on his 19th team in three weeks (But yeah that's no way judge how good he is as our forgotten comrade BKerr used to say), Davidson, Jerabek, Valiev are Euroleagues, Reilly was a top prospect once upon a time, but his play never translated to the NHL because his offensive output doesn't match his defensive liabilities and I don't think Mete's going to start the year in the NHL next season.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    My new poorly written out thoughts on this season's Montreal Canadiens.
