And generally Shattuck's best players are from outside Minnesota.

There's a reason Shattuck plays most tournaments against the MWEHL or whatever they've changed their name to now. Major AAA hockey is still where it's at and Michigan is right at the top with any other state. Anyone who would debate that is not looking at things in perspective or is simply not in tune with USA Hockey.
