Re: A Class All Tourney Team

I think Harrington was a freshman on Lourdes runner up in 01 and was all tourney (although i could be mistaking that for his soph year).

Always want a kid to play through his senior year but if the NTDP comes calling he would be a fool to pass it up. It's a great opportunity. I hate seeing kids leave early and am all for MNHS hockey, but what more does he have to prove? He was 3rd in scoring as a freshman and handily led the state a...

Good luck to Chaz Smedsrud tonight. He has a chance to take 3rd Place on the all time points list. Spehar is currently 3rd with 306. Nice accomplishment for Chaz. If Nelson keeps putting up the numbers like he has, I think 100 goals in a little over 2 years, do you think he passes up his linemate b...

The NA season is longer than the mn hs season. I believe that of players get into either 10 or 12 games for a team during the season their rights then belong to that team for the following season, it's how they do their "futures".

Rochester schools will never be competitive again. Their decision to go to one A bantam team ensures the demise of the programs. North St. Paul is another school that combined its youth program and will no longer be relevant either. The former coach destroyed that program. Demographics are changing...

Is anyone on here from that neck of the woods? Does Warroad get a lot of pressure to move up and if so what is there a reason they don't want to? Last 21 seasons 12 of them have had 5 or less losses. Great program, would love to see them playing with the big boys. When I lived in that area, there w...

I do see Bemidji having a chance though, if they do the following: -Goalie plays lights out (a top 1 or 2 game of his Lumberjack career) -Edina takes penalties, getting them out of their rhythm & not involving their depth to get into a groove (although Malmquist & Wait are pretty filthy on the PK) ...

My biggest concern with the jacks is then viewing reaching the tourney as the finish line having just ended a three decade drought.

If they're ready to go this could be the best game QF game in a long time.

I'd like to see Bemidji win 8AA too but the 1-1 tie with Warroad last night puzzles me. Having seen both Bemidji and Warroad play twice this year, Bemidji should have won by 5 or 6. Eh outshooting Warroad at the Gardens 34-13 isnt exactly a huge blemish. Always a tough place to go into and play, so...

Does most of the Rochester talent usually go to Lourdes? It would seem a city with 3 high schools and a private school would end up having one team that the best players would flock to. It depends.

Rochester hockey is in a tough place. The town is 100,000 people trying to support three AA hockey teams and one A team.

There might be some D1 potential down there, but they're still a long ways off. Derek Frentz from Mankato West put up some pretty good HS numbers against (although not as gaudy as the Luverne players) against much better competition and was taken in the firs round of the NA draft.
