Re: The Hermantown Thread

Having no dog in the fight felt bad for Hermantown in the sense that they were the better team and deserved to win the game if you take into account game control, chances, etc...but that's hockey it can be a cruel game...hopefully they will consider opting up as they can compete with anyone.

Re: Section 4AA thread

Interesting about the RV thing too as the Anderson's dad was a JV coach for Roseville for multiple years in the mid 2000's...certainly they likely knew about the kids and their potential?

Re: Maple Grove vs Blake

I think it's more disappointing that the ref who was over 100 feet away makes that call. I think as a coach, fan, etc. you simply ask for consistency in calls..if down by a G MG may not have been in position for that second penalty call anyway - as with the limited time left and down a goal you have...

Re: 2020 Section Tournament Scores Thread

LS had the territorial and play advantage and control of most of game no doubt. Agree that calls were very one sided and curious as to timing of certain late calls when similar things were not called prior. You'd like in a championship OT setting to let kids settle it unless it's blatant. The too ma...

Everyone has various metrics and such they use for something like this. To me I look at a guy like Randolph who took over something not too great, made it a top program, and has kept it at a high level. Like him or not the track record is there.

Eaves named coach at St. Olaf

Interesting hire. If he has the juice needed in the tank could be a home run for them. Hockey knowledge certainly isn't an issue. Best of luck to Eaves and the Oles!

Refs certainly weren't perfect but these are HS hockey refs were talking about, you have to be mature enough to deal with whatever calls are made and move on, that is part of the game.

Not gonna happen this year. Talent gap between the two teams is much wider this season so WBL margin is much, much slimmer.

There's certainly talent here but not like the HM teams of even a few years ago, they are beatable, but will be a tough out...I think Stilly is certainly a threat.
