Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Rich- its based off the full season of all the teams points and average. It does not round up or down. If it is 6.4 if any team is with 6.4 points or less of each other they us TM. So Flake and DE had 95 points CEC has 88.8 so there is a 6.2 diff. Flake beat DE so they slot ahead of them, CEC beat ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

TBM- The Tiebreaker Margin (TM) was included starting with the 2012-13 season for Sections that use the QRF for seeding. The main reason we have included TM is to allow Head to Head and other "human" tiebreakers be included when seeding using a mathematical formula, something no other formula has e...

Despite beating Cloquet 5-0 and beating Maple Grove last night, East still couldn't pass Cloquet in PageStat. They sure as hell won't pass them after today's results. Lee Sorry for the ignorance and not keeping up, but is section seven seeding locked into the formula it was in the recent past? Or i...

Re: The lake

Edina's star freshman left with an injury yesterday and didn't return. Hopefully he'll be back soon, but without him Edina will find it even tougher scoring goals.

Jimmy Clark

I see that Edina freshman star Jimmy Clark isn't in tonight's game with White Bear, and wasn't on the scoresheet against St. Louis Park Monday. Anyone know his situation? If he's out it's a huge blow to an already anemic offense.

Another way to make money would be to move section four to Marriucci. Eliminating Hill playing at their home rink (and the complaints you get about that) and making it easier for a larger number to see what is always a classic match up would seem to justify it even beyond the money.

Not sure how anyone can credibly say that anyone's "goal" (who? the high school league?) is to have an all metro tournament. There are just four truly northern teams in section seven and four in section eight. Obviously, they could guarantee a northern team at state if they combined them, but I doub...

Vorlicky

Thanks Cake. If the top teams get upset (or lose to an arguably equal team), it's nice if they lose with all their guns and no excuses. It looks like we may get that at state if the top four all make it.

Correction: I believe both Crosby and Koumontzis started the first game despite being down with the flu and were pretty ineffective. But either way I'd like to see these two teams at their full strength best in March.

Edina at Minnetonka, round 3

Edina comes into Minnetonka without two key players (Koumantzis and Vorlicky) for the second time this year against the Skippers, while the one game they were at full strength (winning 8-2) Minnetonka lacked its top defenseman. The game was even at 1-1 before Brinkman broke a skate and was off the i...

East Side Pioneer Guy

Maybe the Pioneers' 21-0 win over Central and 17-0 win over Humboldt in their undefeated 1983 season compare just a bit? And I don't recall Skrypek resting his top lines for half the game. No doubt it was a mismatch. But Hopkins beat the top lines of Hastings 5-2 (who beat Hill Murray) and Woodbury....

Edina's second line was out tonight--Koumontzis and Crosby, who have 30 points (13 goals) in the first seven games. Koumontzis took a bad hit late in the EP game Saturday so that was somewhat expected, but I have no idea about Crosby. Hopefully they are back after Christmas for the Schwan. Either wa...

I like the Elks but think their game with EP is a good indication of where they are at. They have some nice skill in front but aren't playing enough defense. I don't blame the goalie. The forwards are walking in on him and like Edina's goalie, he can't do it without help. I think they looked a goal ...

I thought the Elks were floating a guy and Giles pretty much decided that if they wanted to be outmanned when Edina had the puck he'd live with that because he thought Edina would benefit as much or more. The 10-7 result suggests to me that both decided to let the offenses decide. The Elks did get a...

I'll go for the upsets with Wayzata playing SLP in section 6 final. I think they are both coming on strong at the end of the season. Park lost its last two games of the regular season and is on a one-game winning streak against a team coming off its worst season in decades. Wayzata is 1-5-0 to end ...
