Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

Clafton has submitted his recognition for Greenway. Expect Andy Sertich to be the favorite to get the job if he wants it. Guessing Clafton will be on the Rapids bench this winter as an assistant to Coach Chiodo or possibly associate head coach. I’ve heard the two are good friends. A changing of the...

Re: 7AA 2020-2021

This was suppose to be the last year of a talented bunch of pucksters for CEC. Langenbrunner left though last year and Galatz will or won’t be back. Solid goaltending, an elite defenseman, and a decent top line. The boys in purple will give it their all, though. Coach Walters and his staff will hav...

I may have overreacted kniven so accept my apology for my less than kind remarks. I think you might now have further understanding of hockey at Greenway.
It’s all good.

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

I stand corrected then. I’m a fan of Greenway puck. I just hope they can it going up there. I’m sure they will make it to state again before my Lumberjacks. But fortunately, that’s not why I’m a huge fan of my purple 🤓

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

Combine Greenway and Rapids? You’ve come up with a lot strange and poorly thought out ideas but this tops them all. Apparently your knowledge of the Greenway/Rapids rivalry is sourly lacking. Everybody knows about that rivalry. Greenway can’t survive in 2020. I filmed the scrimmage this fall with C...

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

Sounds good. Can you tell me your thoughts on an enterim head coach for a year or is Proctor thirsty for a long-term hire. I do like Stauber just being a great AD. I don’t think Pionk is the long-term HC answer.

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

Sounds like things are exploding from inside the program. What they have now has zero chance of keeping their high-end talent in Proctor. A new building won’t do it alone. Stauber is probably already looking for work elsewhere. Possibly to Hermantown? I wouldn’t doubt it. Plonk as well.

Andover is going to rule 7AA again next winter with their depth. No team will have their quality depth top to bottom. It seems Duluth East will be all sophomores and a couple 8th graders with the talent. Rapids won’t be deep and no returning netminder. Elk has numbers and new rink next winter. Not ...

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

so Proctor is looking for a head coach. well that's good news he's staying on as AD. I wonder if Pionk takes the head coaching job next year. the next coach is interim for a year then pionk takes over full time?

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I don’t understand why any Hermantown fan would ever attempt a post defending the Hawks. They get immediately destroyed by either Jeffy or ranier or both. It does make for entertaining reading though. We all could use a smile during these crazy times, so let's thank HHawk4Never for dangling some se...

Dan Stauber has stepped down at Proctor. What! That's crazy!! So now will Pionk run the entire show now???? That's too bad. Stauber and Pionk seemed to make the perfect 1, 2 punch...... He resigned from a nice gig at UWS for Proctor and the opportunity to build a program. He must have an offer in h...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

FWIW, no MSHSL athletic department can survive without the income football generates, unless we allow fans there is no reason to play the games. So would you say that the loss of football could cause a domino effect on other sports for the upcoming season? It’s hard to envision a school committing ...

Re: CoVid-19

I don’t like the conona virus thread. This is forum for high school hockey. Information and opinion every and everywhere out there. I think this thread should be locked and go away. Come here for puck 👍

I’m not going anywhere unless I’m booted. I’m sure most are disappointed.
