Re: Blake and Breck

Breck and Warroad. Those 2 teams should really move up. They are light years above the rest of Class A. No disrespect to Cloquet, South St. Paul, etc. I am kind of surprised these 2 teams do not get the Hermantown Boys treatment.

Re: North Star Academy-Alexandria

I’ve heard it’s been a big boost to add another sheet of ice in the town as it was hard to come by at the main rink. Also heard they’re building a third rink attached to the two they have at the fairgrounds so they’ll have 4 indoor arenas. Seems that program is growing well As a restaurant owner, y...

Re: North Star Academy-Alexandria

Interesting that these thoughts come up once a year for about 3 weeks. I just looked back at the trail and realized this thread was just getting re-uped.

Thursday, January 2 Brainerd 4 at Alexandria 1 Sauk Rapids-Rice 1 at River Lakes 5 Kind of an ugly loss for Alex. Brainerd is down this year, and Cathedral and Hermantown mauled them. Yeah, Alexandria has not looked good coming out of the break. Mahtomedi pretty much handled them, and even though I...

Re: 2010s All-Decade Team and Awards

Great post!

I could see a category like best individual performance, or break out performance - Just so I could slide Jack Powell of Alexandria in the Class A slot. His game against Hermantown in 2018 was jaw dropping.

Re: Section 6A 2019-20

The question was and is can any team in 6A upset SCC? If Warner is in the line up, it will be fairly long odds. Probably only Alexandria has a shot and only if one of their solid goalies really gets hot that time of year. If Warner is out, both Alexandria and Little Falls have a shot at taking them...

Re: Top 20 single A teams since inception (1994)

Anyone have anything on Red Wing or Fergus Falls? I scratch my head a bit on Fergus. A few years back they had a very strong team that was right there in a strong section with Alexandria, Apollo, Sartell. Unfortunately, they are in a tough stretch with multiple classes of low numbers and not much f...

I am not defending Hermantown or any other school, the point is if you use enrollment to oust Hermantown you achieve nothing, they have similar numbers to the other schools. If you want them out so you dont have to compete against them then rank the teams and go back to tier 2 hockey.Or the other o...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

We could just start a new A.5 league and toss Hermantown, SCC and other privates/public success stories in there. I was thinking of this the other day and I don't necessarily feel that Hermantown is the problem. They are the symptom of the problem. The problem (in my opinion) is that summer (and now...

Re: Section 6A 2019-20

Well, it was hardly a "decisive" win by Alexandria, in fact it was difficult to decipher the better team here. Alex definitely benefited from some whistle happy officials early. Hearing that some key players for Alex were out of the lineup suggests perhaps the Cards are the slightly better team. Wi...

Re: Brainerd coming to town

Brainerd should still be very solid this year, as they were very deep last year. My expectations are another state tourney appearance. Not sure if they can go as deep as last year. I do think Alexandria will give them a good run in sections, as they are deeper than they have ever been.

Re: Section 6A 2019-20

Cathedral definitely the favorite. Alexandria lost a lot of talent and depth to graduation, but they should still be the #2 team in the section. I would go Little Falls and Sartell as 3 and 4. After that it is pretty slim pickings.
