With some minor section realignment class A would be an interesting state tourney but 2 sections always have the potential of really embarrassing class A (sections 3 and 6). There are some good teams in this top 10 though. What do you propose they change to make 3 and 6 better? You know what I am t...

How does cathedral move from #11 to #4 just by beating an average #15 little falls? This makes no sense and and these are pretty wild fluctuations you will not see in any poll anywhere. Or are you admitting your last week rankings were just that messed up?

I have no clue how to fix section 3 as I don't pay much attention to it but I feel sorry for a 3a team facing STA at state. I just know I would like to see a section with any central mn team at state whether it's scc, Apollo, sartell, or Sauk rapids. Frankly I have grown quite tired of alexandria an...

I've been pretty high on Apollo all year. I've seen them play several times and they've competed with everyone (other than Cathedral). I think they are a good team with some young talent.

Highschoolhockeywatcher I appreciate your rankings. I personally don 't consider the private school all star teams when looking at the class A rankings. I am interested in the small town A schools.

Little falls needs to be moved out of the top 15. Period. Why? I can see it, as their one win over a ranked team was in their first game of the season. Completely off seems a little low, though, as they kept Hermantown within 1 and have been fairly consistent this season. That being said, I'm alway...

11. [8] Little Falls (11-3) The Fliers started off the season really well, but after getting upset in Princeton, they have put up some results that are quite questionable with the quality of goalie they have between the pipes. This will be an interesting rest of the season and they play Apollo this...

this seams about right....class A has been a mess with teams you think would win a game instead dropping it for a loss. outside of a top 10 there is little to be excited about. at the state tournament the champion chip game will be a joke as will at least 2 of the first round games.

Any knowledge on this kid out there?
Decent competition? they are class A and play a tiny handful of teams with a respectable program.

these are the only Class A rankings i value or see having any merit whatsoever...thoughtful consideration and analysis goes into each week...i would expect better and more rhyme and reason from hockey hub..same with followthepuck.

Very disappointing the gophers could not pick this kid up. Very talented, plays the game hard, and overall seems to have a very good head on his shoulders. Hopefully he has a very successful college career and beyond that. Has to be even more disappointing for St. Cloud State! SCSU's hockey program...

What non local people need to understand about Cathedral is that these are kids (95%) who grow up playing youth hockey in St. Cloud and who also attend private school from kindergarten until they reach Cathedral in 7th grade. All students are welcome to receive a premium education but athletes are n...
