Lets get this Forum back on track, and send a shout out to the Steel. After the season they had last year, they are currently on a 4 game win streak 1 against 1st place Greenbay, 1 against 2nd place Indiana and 2 against 4th place Youngstown. Always nice to see a team bounce back from adversity.

Yes they are fantastic!!! 7th place out of 8 teams. 27pts. Ya baby. Only 3rd worst team in the league. Only player that stands out is Miller. I take 3 of whatever your taking.

They have more wins than all of last year. You will make a dry wine with your sour grapes, or did they not draft your little Johnny?

Actually my son didn't get drafted by them thank goodness. Most players there would be happier on an NAHL team. From ownership to Coaches the Steel is a Joke.

The NA or the USHL hummmm let me see. Where do players go when they get sent down from the USHL? Thats right, to the NAHL. Don't get me wrong the NAHL is not a bad league, but don't try to sell that a player would RATHER be in the NA than the USHL.

NAHL teams at best will have 3-5 players at the end of the year committed to D1 schools. Many Nahl teams will not even have one. The Steel has had a total of 9 player commits to d1 schools after the season has started. I think they have a total of 12 all together committed right now.

Ya they are so amazing. They need a coach and an ownership group that cares about the players. Until they learn that they will lose, lose, lose.

The Steel have not had a ton of success in the USHL, but even as a low-end USHL organization, pleas do not ever say playing on an NAHL team would be a better situation for a player. The USHL is THE place to play if you want to move up to D-1 and be an impact player. The NAHL sends a few 20-21 year old players, typically to D-1. What coaches are finding is the players in many cases have reached a peak and do not improve much. They then have 24-25 year old kids playing on the fourth line. This is not a good situation for colleges. The USHL will get younger and the NAHL will send even less to D-1 in the future.

Greg

While it appears you have some knowledge that theory mostly aplies to goalies. Players that measure up come from USHL first, BCHL next,AJHL and OPJHL 3rd followed by NAHL. These are the D1 players and typically how and where thet choose players from. Regardless of the league if you can play college recruiters will find you. The Steel however are still the laughing stock of the USHL and it is strictly because the front office has no clue. Best of luck to them as they are gonna need it.

Been there done that.

"The Steel however are still the laughing stock of the USHL"
What? The bootom line is: if any of your sons is playing for Steel he has the chance for D1 offer!.Isn't this the ultimate goal? Now how many of your kids can play on this team ?,Hello ! Most will not make it!You know how many HS or AA players would kill to make this team.. If my kid plays there someday then quess what, I am happy regardless even if they are in the last place.New season will bring new guys and things will turn around.

in and day out'

a, Greenbay
b, Saints
c,Ice
d,lancers

Group #2 Middle of the road teams
a, Youngstown
b, Cedar Rapids,
c,U17 USA
d, Fargo

The only two team that are going backwards

The Steel have proven the can give the great
teams a good game at times while they can play
and beat the Middle of the road teams.

I agree the Steel is doing better, but in your breakdown you include teams from the West, and do not have the number 2 and 3 teams, Lincoln and Waterloo listed at all? I can go along with group 1, but group 2 would need to get ALOT bigger.

So, last night (April 4th), with a shootout loss in Indiana, the Steel were finally eliminated from the post-season. However, they outlasted Muskegon and Sioux Falls, and could wind up drafting as low as 5th overall in this year's entry draft.

While missing the playoffs shows losing out on the ultimate goal, the culture has changed in Year One of the Scott McConnell Era, and I'd be amazed if the team doesn't see the playoffs next season.
