Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

If a transfer comes to a school, but the school sees the transfer in town before the actual date, does that mean then that the transfer must transfer before the transfer transfers to the school that should have denied the transfer ? Reminds me of a Robin Williams bit from Good Morning Vietnam. :mrg...

School size and education was absolutely a factor here.
Yeah because if Tonka is known for anything it's a bad education.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Nothing more character building then whining about a move and forcing your way out while being granted an exemption on the transfer process because of your dad's connections. He could have stayed at SCC last season. Also hasn't it already been stated a good chunk of the roster at SCC are not kids he...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Have you read the COMPLETE rules surrounding transfer eligibility and the reviews and circumstances they can take into consideration when deciding eligibility? Obviously you haven't if you think that the ONLY protocol for eligibility is a family move. There are cut and dried reasons for eligibility...

Re: High school programs #s in Elite league

Breck or any other A team should not be able to play AA teams period except perhaps a mid-season tournament. Even then.... I think hockey is the only sport where this happens? If not certainly it's not as common. This in my opinion would impose a needless regulation on the better A teams that are c...

Re: High school programs #s in Elite league

Since we're yakking about the elite league, let's bring it back to high school... Certainly supports that Edina/Blake/Andover are at a different level.

I think people are missing the point from the OP.

Re: New Body Contact Rules

They need to get players back to learning how to play with their back to the wall and not facing it. I don't agree that players are intentionally facing the wall to draw a penalty because they're putting themselves at risk for serious injury if their opponent doesn't let up. I think it's more a lack...

Re: Moving to Minnesota for HS Hockey

Edina was a rival of ours. I was a So. in '84 and had no idea they had 2 CA transplants on the roster so I wonder if most people are even aware of it. Hopefully in some of these cases they take up roots in the state after their playing days are over (like so many former North Stars and Wild players ...

Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

It's starting to feel more and more that HS hockey will continue to lose more and more talent to early departures that I had hoped for the past several seasons.

I hope they all arrive and they fall flat on their face. That's a gross # of transfers for a school with that high of an enrollment.

Re: Class AA rankings

Will be interesting to see what Tonka does. They didn't have a great record but only graduated 3 players with measurable stats and they were 5, 6th and 8th in scoring. Question will be if Edge or Dulac gets more time in net? Dulac saw more ice last year but Edge had the clear *ahem* edge in stats.

Yes I'm sure Sean Goldsworthy in his 3rd year of coaching is running roughshod over EL roster formations, and Curt Giles has no pull seeing that Edina only had 2 or 3 players named.

Today's posts further confirm how provincial some (many?) Minnesotans are about their hockey.

Some good netminders in that group but I think overall the group is weaker than in years past. I'm kind of surprised Houg from Edina didn't make it considering all of the hype...did he not tryout?
And beyond that surprised to see Edina with only 2 players total.
