Re: "Single A" school asks state to help fund $28M Arena

Nothing special about this...good for them...New Ulm used sales tax money to build their rink....the only thing is that the special sales tax assessment is still being collected even after receipts had surpassed the amount needed for rink...city now puts those receipts into general fund so they can...

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

Okay let's look at Hibbing: Influencing Factors (in no particular order): 1. Community Population From 1990 or so to now the population has dropped from 18000 to 16000 (roughly) School population has dropped maybe a bit more. 2. Community Financial Resources The iron range has suffered but there ar...

Re: CEC at Hibbing 12/5/2019

They've had nothing but one goal differential games for the last few years, and I don't see why that won't continue on Thursday. My prediction is a 2-1 Cloquet win, decided in the last few minutes of the third period.

Re: Cloquet vs. Proctor/Hermantown 11/7

Of course they have a chance, but it is reaaallly small. :wink: In all seriousness, they do have a legitimate shot if they play a very tight checking game. It's early in the season and Hermantown won't be as sharp in their system (new coach, new systems?) and puck movement won't be as crisp as it wi...

Re: 7A 2019-2020

Top Tier: Hermantown - The girls program is at the point now where they can just reload year after year. It's going to take an off game during sections for them to be unseated. Second Tier: Duluth Marshall - Lost a lot of seniors, so it will be interesting to see who steps up to fill their shoes. Sc...

Re: Girls NIT Dscussion

It's a little disappointing that U16 North didn't get a chance to play for the championship. They went 1-1-1 against black and tied gray in the one opportunity they got to play against them. They only had one other loss for the season...

FWIW, they beat SSM yesterday as well.

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.

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 ...

Little bit off topic, but why would you not hold the Section 7A finals at the Memorial Building in Hibbing.

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...
