My point is that Hermantown is producing enough talent to be in AA, at all levels. Yes, it effects the high school team, as in it means that Hermantown would not be as talented for a year or two. Welcome to Earth, my friend, where 98% of the teams experience these cycles and cannot punch their tick...

Froggy, Hermantown must of really did a number to the Tadpoles team as of late. Good God we all understand you want Hermantown to move up, let it go! Someday it will happen, so just keep posting and your dreams for Tadpole will come true. Let it go? Is that what you said two years ago? Coach Plante...

The strangest part about Hermantown’s refusal to move up to AA is the crazy discrepancy between the schedules of their youth teams and their high school teams. I knew they played AA, but not until I looked at their schedules on Youth Hockey Hub did I realize how stark the difference is between thei...

And by the way. The dominant Peewee AA team from Hermantown. 22-19-6 Against 7AA teams. 3-8-1. 2 wins and a tie come from Forest Lake. Maybe they truly belong. And by the way, that bantam team lost 4-5 of their best players early to Duluth Marshall. If those kids had stayed, Hermantown would be a t...

Because that is playoff hockey? Maybe in your world there are no upsets or lopsided victories followed by tight games. Must be boring when the favorites always win. I wonder if you can stand to watch NHL hockey where every player is of the highest caliber? If there is any decent coaching at all, te...

At first I thought this was a misprint since Bemidji is a AA team. After all, Coach Plante said, "We're a Single A program and Single A works for us. People want us to move, tough!" So I checked the schedule and see that almost half of their games are against AA teams. After being confused for awhi...

Isn't that the point?
Coming from a parent of a 3 time runner up, we had a hell of a time during that span. It was a lot better then being the 3or 4th seed in Sections and getting to State once every 15 years.

Re: Grand Rapids at Hermantown

Who wins? I have many friends in who live inHermantown. They all tell me Hermantown hockey is single A because they can't compete with double AA. I disagree, but he must know something. Grand Rapids is AA and Hermantown is A. = AA beats A according to my friend. It's all BS. If that were true then ...

There might be some D1 potential down there, but they're still a long ways off. Derek Frentz from Mankato West put up some pretty good HS numbers against (although not as gaudy as the Luverne players) against much better competition and was taken in the firs round of the NA draft. This year he's go...

7-0 Hermantown over Cloquet halfway through the 3rd. Is the game as lopsided as the score makes it look? Not as lopsided. The Hawks were maybe only five goals better than the Jacks tonight. :) Newman struggled somewhat in nets for Cloquet, only 32 shots taken on him. Hey, is this Jacques kid for Cl...

Curious why you think they would get to the point where they have to go AA. I don't think they're even close enrollment wise. You're right, it's pretty easy to leave nowadays. It wasn't even a remote thought when I played. Maybe I'm just old school and naive, but I've always thought building somethi...

luverne has a handful of bantams that will be good additions to the high school.

Three main general point to make: 1. I have never intentionally used anything I have seen in person to influence rankings. Even with the teams I have seen, you can't see all the games. I have always used the results of the games played to rank teams. 2. One game doesn't (and can't) make a season. A...
