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...

No other school in Class A has the financial resources available to it that Warroad does, plain and simple. They have players from 3 states and Canada. Case in point for their best D, hometown and high school don't jive; Hometown: La Crosse, WI Nation: United States Position: D Shot: R Height: 5'11"...

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. The best thing to do to shut a parent up or a poison in the locker room is cut the kid or sit his arss. I think coach Smalley will be more than happy to...

Rochester girls HS programs

Why does Rochester have 3 separate girls HS programs? Are they all strong enough to self sustain? Looking at playoff scores it seems like it might make more sense for them to combine.

I don't know exactly how you do it but Class A should be reserved for small rural programs and big city programs that have a small number of participants relative to the student body. Privates would have to apply to play in Class A based on numbers; a school like Minnehaha for example should be allo...
