Re: PageStat 2018-19

As of now, there are six disagreements between PageStat and the various section seedings: Section 2AA quarterfinals: (5) Holy Family over (4) Prior Lake Section 3AA first round: (9) East Ridge over (8) Apple Valley Section 4AA quarterfinals: (5) Woodbury over (4) Irondale Section 6AA first round: (...

Re: AA Rankings for 2/17/19 and Section Preview

I hate to say it but if any team at the top looks vulnerable it is Tonka unless they find their full mojo again. 5-2-2 since beating WBL and while that record isn't awful it's a far cry from their first 15 or so games. Additionally (without looking at the stats to confirm) it seems like their specia...

Re: Lets Play Hockey - Ms. Hockey + Senior Goalie of the Year. Discuss.

To look at only goals against and save % and determine a goalie's talent level is moronic. Where is it stated the award is based upon talent level? And regardless of the players playing in front of her 29th and 71st has to be taken into account. For previous winners that weren't at the top, were th...

Can you provide the whole list of your rankings so we can all take a look? Please provide the threshold for consideration of being a top opponent (was it top 10 coaches ranking at the time they played, current rankings, top 20 KRACH, etc). They're not my rankings.

Re: BSM vs Chaska @ Mariucci (Koster injured)

I am confused by some of the thinking here and the targeting of BSM and it's staff. Chaska also received a five minute major - does that mean that Coach Snuggerud and his staff had a "win at all costs game plan"? I was thinking same thing. I'm not a Pauley fan but to bring back any reference to Jab...

Re: Minnetonka to be featured on season III of "Dream State"

Right , we’ve been running into Pete and Bart every week . More Edina alums covering the Skips?!?! I think Pete/Bart do a fairly good job of being impartial and are often quite complimentary of Tonka. They're great assets to HS hockey viewing. I was also very impressed with the sound bytes (even if...

Re: Super State Tournament

Re: Possible Mr. Hockey Finalists 2018-2019

Has Tonka yet lost a game Luedtke played in?

But it's hard to argue with 3+ pts/game and Blaine has the #5 SOS as of right now so it has to be BB's to lose.

How do you put a time table on frostbite? I guess I don't know what the recovery process is like for that. Good question - it w...

Re: PageStat 2018-19

I’d suggest throwing out goal differential altogether. It’s a double penalty for teams that play a steady diet of difficult teams with few blowout opportunities and a double reward for teams that play a steady diet of easier teams (the win and the padded goal totals). At a minimum, cap the goal dif...

Re: When will Minnetonka's first loss come?

Looks like the Hornets stung the Skips at Pagel. Took em to the woodshed 5-2. New Sheriff in the one spot for AA. Interesting game. Both teams looked average on offense through 2 periods although I think a lot of that was due to the fact both teams have great players on defense and are well coached...
