This would require WBL to actually get back to the state tournament. STA at least seems to make it every year.

I feel bad for the hockey families of WBL. No matter how well they do as youths, and how hard they work to improve their game, it always ends up with unfilled dreams and expectations once they get on the high school hockey team. Lets look back on the season and see how well this coaching staffs doe...

Just a pretty lackluster effort from White Bear Lake. A lot of simple plays were just off tonight. Missed passes, a lot of shots missing the net, and tried to make the perfect play a lot instead of getting a good shot on goal. They definitely played nervous, and Hill Murray played a pretty smart an...

The sad thing is this Hill team is pretty average too, and WBL had no chance. No Bear or Pioneer in this race, but what's to explain the WBL decline? Not exactly an inner ring suburb, so you wouldn't think changing "demographics" is the reason. Or maybe it is? I have no answer to this question. The...

This is the worst WBL team in probably two decades. No forward talent, and besides the top two defensemen an awful blue line. It's gonna be a long season, but should end quickly come section time.

Any word on if Dylan Malmquist is playing? He was taken off the ice early in the 3rd yesterday and I don't believe he ever returned. He only went off and stayed off since they were up by like 17.

I see an even easier fix. Take a good team from 6AA and swap them with a weaker team from 2AA. Put Duluth Marshall in 7AA and then move Elk River into 5AA. Put Centennial back in with the teams in 4AA, then take Tartan and move them into 3AA. Lastly, take one of the middle tier teams from 3AA and mo...

Section 7 is better than the average fan thinks.

That's okay.
I would say it's only behind 6AA in terms of depth in the section. The top 4 seeds were all pretty good this year.

I was kind of hoping to see Jaremko and the Elks at state. All number one seeds would have been one of the deepest tournaments ever, but the Hounds will be a tough out no matter who they draw.

I was at this game, and thought Wayzata was taking it to Minnetonka in the 1st ten minutes, but couldn't get one to go. Once Tonka got their legs going, they were the better team for the majority of the game. Minnetonka really wore them down as the game went on, and I thought Wayzata's goalie was fi...
