Chances that WatchingPuck updates this from Radio to live stream?

It's not like sellout will be an issue...

I'd love to go, but can't.

Re: Section 4AA thread

They do make the fans switch sides when the are the lower seed which is very confusing for some. But not locker rooms H-M only uses their own locker room for the quarterfinal. They move to the other end for the other games. FYI I believe HM will be able to use their locker room again for the entire...

Re: Section 4AA thread

Oh man there is no way the Coliseum is worthy of being a D1 arena. It only had two advantages over Aldrich. First & foremost was the capacity. Less importantly, the seats have backs. It's a dreary, poorly lit dump. It was the Metrodome of HS hockey. Improving it is like putting lip stick on a pig. ...

Re: Section 4AA thread

There are two ideas that I have to fix this, a long shot and an even longer shot. First, the longer shot: Wells Fargo, FOX Sports North and the Minnesota Wild need to come together and invest into Hockey Day Minnesota by either renting or just providing an ice refrigeration system to the host commun...

Re: No Montage Video

This was the second or third year since they've done one. I know the guy who assembled it each year. It became a budgetary issue (it wasn't cheap to produce). On a whole, the quality of the broadcast is NHL-like, we shouldn't complain. That's not correct. They did one each year since 2012 with the ...

Re: Players crying after loses:Is it bad sportsmanship?

It is definitely bad sportsmanship. I remember back in 2011 when my Bears beat Hill-Murray in the Section 4AA Final how all the Pioneers players were laying down on the ice, consoling each other as their dreams of winning a championship were suddenly shattered and the devastating truth that some of ...

Re: Hockey Day in MN

It's not required, but more of a gentleman's agreement between the coaches in HDM games that everyone gets to play. So much for “gentlemen’s agreement”. Hats off to Manney for getting both goalies in! This is varsity high school hockey and it's number 1 vs. 2. There should be no "gentlemen's agreem...

One of the biggest problems on a long list of problems the MSHSL has is their sales staff. They could make a lot more in advertising at these venues, instead they insist on putting the MSHSL logo EVERYWHERE. You can have up to four on ice advertisements in the neutral zone, and while one of them is ...

Just a pretty lackluster effort from White Bear Lake. A lot of simple plays were just off tonight. Missed passes, a lot of shots missing the net, and tried to make the perfect play a lot instead of getting a good shot on goal. They definitely played nervous, and Hill Murray played a pretty smart an...
