Re: MH redistricting

Any suggestions for change? especially in the metro area? There probably isn't any significantly better way, there are always trade-offs, with a perceived benefit there is probably a notable drawback that's associated with that change. I think my primary request would be to allow teams to have a bi...

Re: MH redistricting

I don't think that needs to be a strong consideration, if some of it works out naturally that way I don't see a reason to be opposed, but I think it becomes fairly complicated especially in some areas with a mix of metro/rural and large and small associations.

Re: Final 54s and national camp selection conundrum

Do you mean the dates of the camps? They look similar to me, at least relative to 2019. Or do you mean announcement dates of invites? If that's the case, then I agree. I assume it is COVID related, and they're still working on confirming camp safety protocols, but you'd think they'd have their act ...

Re: Final 54s and national camp selection conundrum

Not sure what to make of this, but the Minnesota Hockey website now says the national player development camp invite lists will be released no earlier than June 9 (the girls 16-17 camp is schedule to begin June 26 in St. Cloud). This is much later than it has been released in the past. All levels o...

Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

There is a west metro public school that makes Lakeville South look like peanuts. Hint, starts with M and ends with Tonka. They have been recruiting harder then most D1 schools for 10+ years. Recruit to have the player come into program as 8th or 9th grader, sometimes younger, thus flies under the ...

Meh, it was eventually going to catch up with South as it did with North. I do not blame the coach at all, parents do the recruiting.....AD’s follow the MSHSL vague rules , coaches are in a no win situation most of the time. Employing a coach who benefits financially from off season programs leads ...

Twitter seems to indicate it was over "recruiting". If that's now a fireable offense, then several coaches are gonna be out of a job soon.

Isnt that true of many coaches? 😉
I'd say that in general it's much more slanted to the "you don't" side. Most fans in all sports regardless of level (youth, HS, college, pro, etc.) think their HC is a buffoon a large % of the time and that it could be done much better. Not an easy gig.

Sections have always been regional. I understand it is the state tournament with regional representation and not a Great 8. HOWEVER, where the lines are drawn is fluid and we've seen Jefferson/Kennedy in a different section from Edina/Richfield/Minnetonka, Elk River/Andover with Grand Rapids/Duluth...

Spar/ Eastsiders - I mean are the pioneers just going to show up at their scheduled game tomorrow and come in to the rink? If they did, is someone going to be there to tell them they can’t play, knowing the cameras will be rolling ? Meeting between HM and MSHSL at 8:00 pm tonight to discuss options.
