Re: Elite league

In regard to massalsa's not-so-great-things-about-GEL, could attendance issues be cured by parents tossing down extra $$$ as an "attendance deposit"? If so, what $$$ amount would work and how many games can be missed? If you play a minimum amount of games, the deposit check is shredded. Obviously if...

Re: Competitive Section Assignments

The winner of the state tournament should be immediately moved to section 2, and the section 2 team with the longest drought is moved to some other section. Or maybe all 8 teams from the state tournament should be moved into section 2. I am not a fan of the new sections. The Edina/EP rivalry was fa...

Re: 2018-19 KRACH RANK - MGHCA WEBSITE - Updated 2/6 (6866)

Re: Section Seeding

Great analysis, Lace'emUp. I was shocked to see Flake getting the nod over Andover also, but it probably won't matter 'cause in all likelihood they'll meet one another in the final. I was wondering too if the seeding was done before Flake lost so badly to Blake yesterday? Yes, I wondered that too (...

Re: 2018-19 KRACH RANK - MGHCA WEBSITE - Updated 1/27 (5877)

Same argument / assessment comes up every year. If they eliminated sections and had a 64 team tournament, there would still be upsets and a couple of those teams might not make the final eight (examples of Edina losing to Blaine earlier this year and Brainerd just losing to Buffalo). Even if it was ...

Re: Holiday Tourneys

See post above - all tourney results finalized, and my comments have been added to my original predictions. To clarify your notes about the Schwan's Cup final, Blake won in regulation, not OT. Andover had Blake on the ropes until they squandered their lead with about 3:30 to go in the game when Bla...

Dynamo Premier Prep vs MGHCA Premier Prep

For those of you who do not have Elite League level players, I received emails from both Jess Christopherson w/Dynamo Hockey and Tim Morris w/MGHCA regarding the fall Premier Prep HS league(s). It appears Jess has broken away from MGHCA (even though she's still prez til Oct - correct?), and moved he...

so to bring the argument to the right page. I did some ciphering on the two goalies that always seem to move to the top of the discussion.

You act as if they were helpless to not score 20 goals. Play your 4th lin...
