Re: AA tournament not a state tournament?

That’s my point. McFeely doesn’t know enough about hockey to understand that his article is pointless and unnecessary......or even the meaning of what he is writing and how it fits in the landscape which he has no knowledge of.

Re: AA tournament not a state tournament?

Mike McFeely is a basketball guy who Know very little about hockey. Save your breath. And no, northern hockey isn’t ending because Duluth East didn’t make it to the state tournament this year. Move along. There’s nothing to see here.

Re: AA Line Charts

Some of the teams post them on their twitter handles. I thought Moorhead did so looked at theirs. The last one they had posted was for the Section semifinals. No idea if it changes much or not.

Re: Seeding for State

EP is actually 0-2-1 against state tourney teams.

To Spehars comments on Twitter......the 2-4 seeding is more complicated than people are giving it credit for when you look at the meaningful comparisons I think.

The entire roster of one of this years AA tourney teams played Mini Mites together and went to kindergarten together except for one third line player. And he played in that community as a first...

Re: Section 8AA Final - Roseau vs. Moorhead

One thing worth pointing out.........I’d guess somewhere along the way Roseau committed an infraction or two or five that someone could point out and argue could have been called. A bit dicey to spend this much energy on one non call when your team wasn’t called for a single penalty in the entire ga...

Re: Section 8AA Final - Roseau vs. Moorhead

I can’t disagree and had similar thoughts on that play live. Although I’d have to rewatch it to confirm there was actually contact to the head. It is possible it was actually a clean hit but the video would prove that one way or the other. Live I thought what you thought. One item of note on that fr...

I actually thought the attendance at the game tonight in Bemidji was the highest it’s been in a handful of years for a Section Final......stream or no stream. And the initial numbers I heard for viewership of the stream were crazy strong. Hats off to Roseau for a great battle and season. My guess is...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I’d have Rapids pegged as the best team in the section next year.........maybe with or without Peart. Andover is going to lose a lot and while the Elks run has been great......losing Humphries, Michaelis and the keeper is going to be a boatload to replace. I’d suspect East will rebound to be back in...

Re: Bemidji at Moorhead

I’ve talked to multiple people that were at the game. The shot in question was 20 feet plus from the net when the whistle blew. That’s pretty much all that matters as the players likely stopped at that point. It can’t be proven that they did. It can’t be proven that they didn’t. The Bemidji fans in ...

Re: Bemidji at Moorhead

No controversy I don’t think. Clear guy in the crease. The puck was 15 feet from the net still when the ref blew his whistle.
