A Third Class

It's sad what's happening to high school sports. Same teams year after year. HT in the North HM in East Metro Lakevilles in the South Metro EP/Tonka in the West Metro Granted HM has to because its a private, but the others have large, successful hockey association, and they are ruining HS hockey wil...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

For what it's worth, it looks like hockey's not the only thing Gentry's going to dominate. But, just as the hockey team can use their "W.I.N" time to play hockey, the lacrosse players can use that time to play lacrosse as well. Since there's a turf bubble right next to the school building, attached...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

We didn’t see any other teams play a puck possession or passing game like we can do. Will be interesting to see how well that works in AA. Everybody knows who the best mite players are, because they are the ones with the puck on their stick all of the time. When competition levels off (or even beco...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

When competition levels off (or even becomes better) the puck possession game changes dramatically. I just watched puck possession win in HS, at the NCAA level, and I know it works at the Olympic level. Players spending two years in the NTDP have the importance of puck possession ingrained into the...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

Just a thought. What if we created a Class AAA that was strictly for opt ups (nobody was placed into it to start). The premise being, this is for those teams that want to be considered the BEST High School team in Minnesota! And the rules are different, where recruiting and transfers are allowed! N...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

The problem I see (not with Gentry) is that a third class of hockey has progressed in Minnesota. The problem with it is how do you segregate this class to make things more even for finding a state champion at the various levels. We currently have: 1. small schools 2. bigger schools and 3. those tha...

Re: Class A semifinal--Little Falls vs Dodge County

Sounds like we need to create separate classes for metro and non metro. Probably a separate state tournament too. Welcome to the pity party. Joking aside I don't think the intent of class A was to help build small, "non metro" programs specifically. It's an avenue for any team that falls under the ...

Re: Class AA Semifinal: EP vs. Maple Grove

I had a feeling the winner would be on a bad turnover or defensive play by MG. There defense was definitely their weakness.

Re: Class AA Semifinal: EP vs. Maple Grove

Not impressed with MG's defensemen in their own zone. How many times can they get walked to the outside. Then on Blake's pp goal, that de was brutal. I think he had to pick up his jock before heading back to the bench.

Re: Class AA Semifinal: EP vs. Maple Grove

Does Mike Grant lean on hockey refs like he does football officials or something? Just like in section final when EP got a couple powerplay gifts after going down 3-1 to Tonka, refs give EP a powerplay for EP kid slashing an MG player. Jeebus. That was a complete 180 call. What should have been a M...

And the player introductions with masks on....
Are masks required? When they show closeups after the goals, is doesn't look like they are wearing them.
Most of the masks are tucked under their chinstraps.
Whew, I'd hate to see somebody get Covid of the Chin! :oops:

Re: Class A QF - Dodge County vs Hermantown

Assume it is 7 FULL days...... and they still have to test negative on Thursday to be able to play Friday for the 10 day quarantine. If one player tests positive on Thursday does that take the whole team out? No because they should all be quarantined individually, so only the guys who test positive...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

So the real question is......

How many consecutive state championships (A and AA) will it take for the MSHSL to make changes?

Gentry is a lot like Shattuck and Shattuck is not allowed to play in the MSHSL.
