Re: Out State Recruitment -- STA this year and going forward

From my coaching days I know that the MSHSL puts the onus on the AD of each school to police this and follow the rules. They will only step in when absolutely necessary.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Kniven hit the nail on the head. "The AD" doesn't care about competing at the AA level, they are all about chasing trophies. Because out shooting your opponent 50-10 in the section final and winning your QF game at state by a touchdown certainly isn't about competing. The best though is when they sa...

Re: Future of Duluth Marshall

Coach Flaherty was the backbone of building and maintaining the Marshall boys program, ever since he got sick the numbers have been in a downward trend.

Re: Class A QF: North Branch vs. #2 St. Cloud Cathedral

Awful officiating that period, North Branch player gets crosschecked on a partial breakaway no call and 2 bad interference calls - especially the 1st one took away their early momentum.

Re: Section Hypocrisy

7A makes no sense. Used to go back and forth between Duluth and Virginia each year for semi-finals and finals. Now its been in Virginia the last 3 years, and last week Duluth Marshall played Proctor/Hermantown in Virginia. If they are going to keep it up there each year at least have the semifinal g...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

Greenway is the only team that can contend with Goliath in this section, If they can consistently play like tonight should be the 2. But going to be very interesting to see how 3-7 plays out. Could be any order for Denfeld, Eveleth, Virginia, North Shore, and Falls. Think 8-10 will be Proctor 8, Hib...

Not Gonna happen. Hermantown has four stud Bantams coming up next year from their Top 5 AA team. Joey Pierce from Ely, Cole Antcliff from Proctor, Ethan Lund from Hayward, WI and Gavin Blomdahl from Duluth. Hermantown Bantams took Greenway to the woodshed last Season and that was without Pierce.[/qu...

Looks like it will end up as follows;

1. Marshall
2. Mirage
3. I Falls
4. CEC
5. Hibbing
6. Moose Lake
7. Eveleth
8. North Shore

I think the top 2 are strongest teams but any of the top 6 could pull off an upset. I Falls has been on fire as of late.

I think at the 1/4 pull the top 2 teams remain the same but move Andover to 3 and St. Francis is the 4. Cambridge has had a good start as well.

1. Forest Lake
2. Elk River
3. Andover
4. St Francis
5. Cambridge

My money is on Forest Lake, but it should be competitive this year. Duluth will not contend but will have some quality wins. Grand Rapids doesn't have enough depth on the blue line to be a top 4 team this year.
1. F. Lake
2. Elk River
3. Princeton
4. Andover

Should be a good battle Kniven - your team may be as good as any in the section. Moose Lake might be the sleeper, they lost some great seniors but still have talent and goaltending. The Mirage will be strong as always. Marshall may be a threat if they can put the puck in the net. Hibbing lost a lot ...

Re: 7AA for 2017-2018

I think Rapids lost too much.

1. DE
2. ER
3. DM
4. C-E-C
5. GR
6. Andover
7. FL
8. St Francis
9. Cambridge

Hermantown would be the 2 or 3 seed if they played AA.

Does anything change in your pre, pre, pre season ranks with coach Smalley on board at CEC. I think their stock went up as a team with the hiring.
