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.

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...
