Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Hmm... it now seems like every team that has some semblance of success is a target on this board. I remember Luverne taking shots. Hermantown, Warroad, EGF, Alexandria, Orono, Totino Grace, and so on and so on and so on. These are just the Class A schools. Let's be honest about something. It is not...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Heard, but not confirmed, Warroad looking west for some help. 3 kids from Minot making move East to play for Warroad (boys side). One would guess these families have sisters who play as Warroad has been bringing in both boys and girls to take roster spots of kids that actually grew in the system fo...

Re: Warroad Bantam A State Champs

Just a note related to the high school level that Hermantown, Mahtomedi, and St. Cloud kids are all playing AA at this age. Some of their major competitors at high school might be different than they are now. For sure. I do enjoy seeing Warroad overcome EGF and TRF at these levels because it’s impo...

Re: Warroad Bantam A State Champs

I think it’s their second straight year of winning it. Hopefully it leads to a section championship in the next few years.

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

Didn’t get to watch many games this season, and obviously with my username, the games I do see are metro and south,so holy cow is this Greenway team impressive! Never throw pucks, they are always looking to make plays and it works majority of the time. My favorite team to watch in a long time. Such...

Re: Most Devastating Tourney Final Loss

I guess the 1969 championship game between Warroad and Edina would have to rank up there. Boucha got elbowed in the head and ended up out of the game with a broken eardrum. Then Warroad loses in OT. I played against Henry. Best player I ever played against. He probably would have won that game. I’m...

Re: Section Hypocrisy

Again, it's good background information but it doesn't change the fact that 4 is the only section that doesn't have a neutral site for the championship game. Irrespective who was slaloming in Roseville four years ago, that doesn't make it right. There is plenty of available ice in the Twin Cities t...

A few posters have referred to UND as the Fawker's but their fans are the most unbearable ones? That's neat logic.

As someone who graduated from Bemidji State I always thought that Gopher fans were the most annoying for hockey.

It will be interesting to see how he builds his teams at the U. Does he keep building teams using the same formula he’s used at St. Cloud or does he get enticed by some of the higher skill players that would choose the Gophers over the Huskies? I guess we’ll see.

I am not sure where the fault lies as far as getting a home and home with other top teams in the section. (I would tend to say one team and not 4 but I have no idea) But really I don't even care if they just want to play other section teams once. Mostly I have a problem with how some of the coaches...

The biggest recruiters for high school or youth hockey are the kids themselves. If you really want to see fewer top kids switching programs then you should argue for less off season hockey like selects, elite league, etc so these kids don't get an opportunity to play together.

I agree with you that there should never be a semi-final game played in that rink ever! It's a joke for HS hockey period. It's one of the many reasons why the hockey ...
