Re: Women coaches

I agree with you on many points, but not the shame-centered approach. I have yet to see a male coach use that method with a women or girls team.

FWIW, Hibbing, D. Marshall, Hermantown, and Cloquet are all section 7A teams coached by women.

Re: Class A QF: #5 Delano vs. #4 Greenway

Frank is an absolute gem. Just an idea. . .focus on your D1 team, or satisfy your man crush and go coach Greenway. What purpose does it serve a D1 coach to go on a rambling dissertation about a below average HS hockey team? Hey Goldy, #1 it's his alma mater. #2 if you don't like A hockey, don't go ...

Re: Section 7A seeding

Little bit off topic, but why would you not hold the Section 7A finals at the Memorial Building in Hibbing. I was back over there a few weekends ago watching a co-workers kid in a Bantam B tournament and the arena looks as good as ever. I was talking to one of the rink attendants and he said they j...

Re: Dismal 2019 for Range Hockey

According to MN Hockey Hub, four of the players puckranger lists have been in all 17 games and two others have been in 16 games. Injuries happen. Except for Hermantown, no team in this section is very deep. Every team has kids playing hurt right now. I wouldn't trust the Hub's game play count. I kn...

What's to blog about? The season started a week ago and games haven't been played. If you want to see some 7A action, Cloquet is in Hibbing this weekend for a scrimmagefest. Hibbing and Cloquet don't play each other however. Hibbing played in GR's scrimmagefest last week, and tied Lakeville North 1-...

Re: New Arena in Proctor opens next week

It's worth noting how cyclical many of the Iron Range schools can be, too. Without Hermantown, we would've been talking about Virginia as a serious State Tournament contender this past season, and they've had a few other surges in talent over the past 15 years. Eveleth, while probably well short of...

Re: Dynamo Premier Prep vs MGHCA Premier Prep

I see no problem with it. The Elite league will still draw the best, and all the other leagues offer ample opportunity for kids to play if they care to.

If a raucous atmosphere at Mariucci is ever going to happen consistently, the U needs to make the tickets affordable and accessible for students.

A new coach may re-energize the fanbase, but if that fanbase can't afford to get into the game it does no good.

The issue that Roseau and other northern teams run into really falls across four issues. 1) Geography - Roseau's closest AA opponent is 2.5 hours away (Bemidji).
