Re: Cloquet Goalie Quits team

Not the wisest of moves to go sit idle on a NA3HL bench. Had he remained at Cloquet he likely is playing this Saturday in the semi against Rapids. I hope the kid has a great junior career but make no mistake hockey won't get any easier or "fair". So I guess you are saying the goalie that played was...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Since, not sense and it was 2005 last time trip to state for Elks, so yeah should move down to A........... My bad coach , but this is still not answering my question why would cloquet move down. Let’s say Andover stumbles to Grand Rapids assuming Rapids beats Elk River , cloquet would be the most ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Agree to disagree. There's just too many good hockey programs up north still. By cramming them all to one section it'll be Moorhead or Duluth east at state most years. Instead of both. And not sure how much sense it makes to have two teams in the same section on opposite sides of the state. We've b...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I don’t get the bandwagon with everyone saying cloquet needs or should go to single A , they are not getting killed every season like ST Francis was . Maybe Elk River wants to drop down to single A with that logic , they have not made it to the state tournament sense 2001. Since, not sense and it w...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

You go to that alignment and it just about becomes an all metro state tournament being there is rarely a participant from the southern part of the state . There needs to be two schools potentially representing the north down at the Excel! Hockey is already metro centric as is all the sports, that i...

Re: One Change to the Playoffs/State Tournament

Football has a rule change proposal that would mandate scheduling every team in your section to make seeding schools for playoffs a more straight forward endeavor. Mankato West, for example, can only play New Prague in their section during the regular season. Hockey could do the same, have every sc...

Re: One Change to the Playoffs/State Tournament

I like the idea! But as you pointed out, this makes seeding HUGE! I think you would need to move to a more uniform seeding method (QRF or something similar) just so you dont have coaches bias play a factor in the seeding process. I don't know exactly how the seeding process works. Maybe each sectio...

Not absolutely sure but I think they may have hosted Rapids in 2010.
I think you are right.
They beat Rapids 6-0. I just looked it up.
They hosted the 4/5 game last year against Elks

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Rapids is definitely locked in as we roll into sections. Playing lights out defense. Haven't allowed more than 2 goals in over a month. Clafton GAA below 1.70. Cloquet was getting pretty frustrated late in the game, couldn't buy a goal so laid a cheap cross check against Young in the closing minute...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I know 59, truth hurts sometimes! Lol
Just cranking it up for playoffs! Perfect opportunity to “highlight” thumping of hounds and get a little dig in at the same time...amazing thing is how many of those “good” teams didn’t get the W in Duluth yet the “relatively bad” team gets a shutout.

Not talking to you , I am talking to the Andover fan that’s disrespecting the northern teams thinking it’s going to be a cake walk. Clearly a narcissistic northerner....

If you can field a team play the game. If you cancel the JV fine, but this seems like trying hard to avoid a loss. Cripes, in life if people call in sick work still continues.
