SLP should be pretty happy with the new section assignments. Very good chance to get to state. Should make a difference on who stays.

It does seem like an awful lot of bandwidth for what could have been a pretty simple poll. Feels like research for a thesis on board behavior.

Bolded is irony. Seems that drawing ignorant parallels DOES fly here. What did you even say here? If the MSHSL invited a prep school environment by kicking out private schools it would be disastrous for high school hockey in the state.

Creating a private school tournament would destroy high school hockey. Privates would just go to 20 minute periods, extended schedules, start giving out full athletic scholarships. Think about a ~50 game season of elite level hockey that you don't have to go to boarding school or live with a host f...

I've always wondered (no experience here!) which memory - for the players - is better: 3rd place (or consolation champs) ending with a win or 2nd place ending on a loss. The Meirs Moore comment reminded me. Meirs might actually be a good person to ask, as he's now done both--though I suppose gettin...

The three BSM kids families DID move to St Louis Park, adhering to the transfter rule. Private schools give need-based and merit scholarships. That is why they have a wide range of socio-economic classes representing their schools. If a hockey player or a basketball or football player happens to re...
