👏 👏👏👏👏 for putting each set of semis in one arena! It doesn't really matter for 2AA and 6AA if they are in the same arena or not. They empty the building after each game and there's a 90 minute break between them, having to pay to get back in for another game...

I'm kind of an old turd myself but you will never see me say some high school kids are a dreadful bunch. No matter what color jersey they wear. You are free to call it what you want. An 11-0 loss and outshot 60-7 is an indicator of an extremely bad hockey product based on programs yearly hockey exp...

Wow. Things are really bad here in Cloquet. It's going to be what it's going to be. Hopefully in 4 years there is something honest and real left to rebuild on. in 2013, had to wait till the dust settled and rebuild. It seems it will be that way again in 4 years when the current regime comes and goe...

Based on getting their teeth kicked in for 14 years in AA, based on average youth numbers, based on how many kids they are actually pulling from A-ML and finally based on that I actually had to use a calculator to add their opponents scores from those years! :) But a lot of schools can say at least...

This may have been one of the strangest games I have witnessed in Memorial Arena. Buffalo had zero shots on goal in the first period, none and trailed 2-0. In the 2nd period they get 8 shots on goal and 4 go in. They were still out shot for the period. After a goalie change, Roseau tries to get the...

Easy solution : Should East be in finals against southern sec team, on the day of the game they have to ride a bus half way to their opponents school then return to Duluth.

My biggest takeaways from the seedings 1. STMA got rewarded rather than punished for playing everyone only once and some teams not at all. 2 Bemidji got totally hosed. IMO we're a 2 or 3 seed. But if they were gonna be a 4 or 5 they had to be behind Brainerd so I guess I see that. 3. Roseau got rew...

Not very worried at all. Roseau could be from 2nd to 5th, but just fun to speculate. Been having fun speculating on seedings for more than 20 years, probably before STMA had a hockey program. It is a fun time of the year. Instead of getting your undies bunched up, make your predictions and give you...

I don't see how this benefits East. The way Rapids is playing now, Cloquet is a much tougher draw. Add the rivalry factor and you have a much more difficult game for East. Also, if memory serves me right, Cloquet has taken East out of the Sectionals more than Rapids has. Apparently late season perf...

It would be interesting to see these scores using only the top 5 seeds of each section after seeding is done. Since seeds 6-n have very little to say in who goes to state...
