Did they check on the rink availability in East Bethel?
lol 😂 That rink holds about 200 people 🏒🤠
That should be more than enough from what I saw at the semifinals! 😁

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

^^ I agree. It would be a surprise if Peart leaves. Most pieces return and I think he (the team) would want a shot at redemption for the early playoff loss this year.

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

I agree with everyone on here. I didn’t feel Rapids played a terrible game. The Elks played a good one though and that was enough. I still think the save Elks goalie made on Peart rush right after GR closed it to 2-1 was the difference. I’m sure if He scores on that play the momentum would have shi...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

Mnmouth, I totally agree with your view, It had to be one of the most disappointing showings I have seen all year by this team, my first impression was the group never got off the bus and they weren't even in the game. The defense was not playing the way they had all year.The seniors weren't steppi...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

Disappointing loss today. Congrats to the Elks for bringing their game and rising to the challenge after the 1st period. Rapids may have got caught looking ahead to Andover after the 1st period that they completely dominated. A shame that much forechecking couldn't result with a goal. The Elks bent ...

Re: 2020 Section Tournament Scores Thread

That makes 4 of the current top 10 teams out today... Edina, Cretin, Rosemount and Prior Lake. I have no idea what to think about this year. Burnsville could still win it all... Probably depends which ranking you're looking at. Karl has Rosemount at 11 and Edina 13. GR was 10, who also lost today. ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

You go to that alignment and it just about becomes an all metro state tournament being there is rarely a participant from the southern part of the state. There needs to be two schools potentially representing the north down at the Excel! Yeah I would agree. Better to have 2 mostly northern sections...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Hockey is already metro centric as is all the sports, that is where the population resides. Out state is getting older by the year and school enrollments dwindle each passing year. makes zero sense to have 2 northern team in one section. Where are your big hockey numbers coming from with no industr...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Rapids firing on all cylinders heading into playoffs. Biggest collapse tonight was the opening 20 seconds. Great game. Both teams had flurries of control and chances. Rapids looked better to close it out. If it comes to it, I think Andover will have a hefty challenge in front of them. This team has ...

Can someone with better knowledge clarify something for me? I see Duluth East finished with a regular season record of 10-12-2. Is that the first sub-.500 regular season record ever in the program's history or, the first in a very long time? First one since 1952-53. Lee I've been waiting all year f...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

If Cloquet can't attract or retain good players moving to single A will not help that cause one bit. If good kids wanna trophy chase on a single A team in the area they'll go to hermantown.

And come on, if they quit opting up then the 7AA thread will miss out on all this awesome banter with kniven!

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Rapids is definitely locked in as we roll into sections. Playing lights out defense. Haven't allowed more than 2 goals in over a month. Clafton GAA below 1.70. Cloquet was getting pretty frustrated late in the game, couldn't buy a goal so laid a cheap cross check against Young in the closing minute....

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Grand Rapids with a big win against Wayzata should almost lock the two seed. I would think so too. The shot counter heavily favored Wayzata but scoring chances favored Rapids, especially capitalizing on those chances: scored on a breakaway, scored after winning a puck race in wayzatas end while the...
