Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Im looking for a solid secondary confirmation on the transfer information. The first source is always right 99.9%, but the name is so explosive that have to be 100+%, and even then may be best to wait for family announcement. BTW- Arent CEC and Rapids in Karl and Kniven home territory? See other th...

Re: 9 Minnesotans make Hockey News Top 120 for the upcoming 2019 NHL Draft

8+1 is correct. Crazy how far Helleson has dropped (if this list is accurate). If I had to guess I’d say he goes higher than this, but he may be one of the rare cases where going to the NTDP actually hurt his draft stock. The difference in trajectory between he and Jackson Lacombe, who stayed at Sh...

Re: NHL Central Scouting Final Rankings

I remember Lou Nanne saying on the radio when Ben Brinkman was a high school junior that he is a 1st round NHL pick, probably top 1/2 of the first round. What happened?

Re: State of Hockey's Team

It is going to take someone pretty special to go straight from high school to college any more. Heck, even D-III schools want players to have junior experience under their belts. And who can blame them when the rules allow it. Why would you want an 18 or 19 year old freshman when you can have 20 or...

Re: NDTP Invites MN edition

I saw all of these kids this year except Lucius, and the tender from Heron Lake. The best in my opinion were Janicke and Mittelsteadt. Mittelsteadt's brother Casey stayed for his senior year and he has a brother John on the EP varsity so I'm guessing he will stay at least another year. Janicke's bro...

Instant classic....So sorry I couldn't make it this year. The “classic” statement needs to not be thrown around every time a game goes to overtime. Let’s be realistic here, it was quite dull for a majority of the game with Eden Prairie dominating and really should have been up more than 1 to 0 goin...

It seems like Edina is so much better than any other high school team in the State, there is no possible way they can lose to a merely good-but-not-great team like Eden Prairie.
I'll say 7-1 Hornets in a snooze-fest.
I hope you didn't snooze because it was far from a "snooze fest".

Re: AA title: Edina vs EP

Edina is lucky to just be down one after two periods. Getting out worked tonight. EP is forechecking them hard and Edina can't exit the D zone clean or complete a pass. Even offensively, they keep missing sticks or put it in the feet with passes. They have to stay out of the box too, whenever they ...

This could actually be a good close game but I think Edina wins in a very high scoring game.

Edina 7 - STA 4
It could turn into a high scoring affair, but both of these teams play very sound defensively.
So far you are correct. It looks like a high scoring game.......unfortunately.

EP beat Blaine 7-6 in December. Both teams are playing better than they did in that game so I'm going to take EP even though I would love to see an Edina v. Blaine final. Hope I didn't just jinx Edina.
