I was going to put Zetterberg on my top line but I felt it wouldn't be right to leave Gagne out, so I went with a natural RW Gaborik. A very good choice my friend.

Ahh Bonner, yes.... I played for Haverford and then I switched schools to Shipley, which didn't have a team, and I was forced to play with Episcopal Academy... I had a couple games against Bonner, good competition.

the program has regressed a bit- more of a numbers thing. plus we are not the most wealthy school so alot of kids dont play ebcause of money. but we try, stay in the AAA level even though we should probally move down. And our JV team has been great the past 2 years

Episcopal, no offense, kind of sucks at the moment. They just dont have that many kids playing. they had like 2 good kids but our JV beat there varsity :)

and malvern is really god

Yea, I know episcopal has sucked for a long time... I beat them alot when I played for Haverford and then they were so short on players last year and I guess this year (I'm in college now, playing D2 club so I'm not 100% on that) that they had to pull players from Shipley (me and 4 other players helped em out). But, it was better than no ice time!
