It's much better if you actually cite the sources you're getting this from. I don't feel like looking it up. However, it's recognized by most that the USHL is more prestigious than the NAHL.

South and Central went 2-2 last year.
Game #1 (Regular Season @ Central): South - 4, Central - 1; Shots - South: 25 Central: 36
Game #2 (Regular Season @ South): South - 2, Central - 4; Shots - South: 25 Central: 20
Game #3 (EDC Championship @ Purpur): South - 4, Central - 1; Shots - South: 32 Central: 28
Game #4 (STATE 3rd Place Game @ Purpur): South - 2, Central - 2; Shots - South: 30 Central: 28
Shots are generally unreliable, but I posted them anyways. The scorekeepers do really bad jobs of tracking them most games. Central pretty much won when it didn't count. South had already clinched EDC in their first win. These teams played pretty close all year though, along with Bismarck clearly the top three in the state during the regular season. As for the 3rd place game, every year it's a joke. I've said it before and I'll say it again, something needs to be done so that it's not a wash of a game. The players simply don't care and they feel like they've been throttled from the tournament after being denied a shot at the big show and sent to the Purpur. It's an insult to injury, no TV round, nothing. An example of this, South played all their seniors, their backup goaltender in net (like they did with Bismarck, smart coach), and Central did the same with their seniors (though they had no senior backup tendie).

Fargo South had the best defensive core last year. Hooey, Narveson, Burdick, Wagner and Luecke all would have started for Central last year and would have started this year as well at Central. I do think that Central runs their systems better though, but that's coaching. They do a better job at neutral zone coverage and puck control than South. That's not really defense though, that's more preventative defense.

Yes, they do. Wurden for example. Then again, if you think about it, almost all teams do this when they have a 'stud' player in their lineup.
