Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Westy’s big move is Motzko is going back to St. Cloud Cathedral. I am probably in the minority but I don't view this as a bombshell. bomb·shell noun 1. an overwhelming surprise or disappointment. "the news came as a bombshell" 2. a very attractive woman. "a twenty-year-old blonde bombshell" one tha...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Goalie going back to Orono? Could be? They'd have to claim financial hardship to transfer back though I would think (which I would think would be hard considering they're loaded). Also, he's already experiencing hip or knee issues from overuse according to my source. He and his father were told to ...

Or if Jeffy is on to something... Jackson Blake to Moorhead where his Dad is from?
Does Blake dislike the coach at EP enough to move back to the 218?

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

I know that Uma the goalie at Breck is headed back to Edina. Does that count as explosive? No one's really thought about the female angle :D

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Im looking for a solid secondary confirmation on the transfer information. The first source is always right 99.9%, but the name is so explosive that have to be 100+%, and even then may be best to wait for family announcement. BTW- Arent CEC and Rapids in Karl and Kniven home territory? See other th...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

The transfer I’ve been mentioning above has been confirmed. Not sure how widely known . Type of thing you want the family or team to announce, or someone who follows the home team for the Forum will know the right time better than me . Imho , it’s big . Urge the 6 posters who were following my stor...

While I've probably been guilty of this once or twice on this forum, I will agree that "I know some secret big news but am going to leave you all in suspense and not share any details on it" statements are rather annoying.

Jamie McBain does a D clinic at MN Made. I'm not sure of price but I'm going to guess it is reasonable.

Re: 2019 HP U17 or U16 Boys Rosters?

How many coaches/board members were part of this process and which associations do they represent? Would be interesting to compare that to the actual results.

Re: 2019-2020 Coaching Changes List

Seeing on twitter Lakeville North has hired Jaked Taylor as their new HC I assume this is the Jake Taylor who has been an assistant there. From the outside this is a good hire, he has been pretty involved in the coaching for a few years. Has the potential to be a decent coach once JE's kids are gon...

Just saying this has “dad whose kid got cut” written all over it. Sorry if that isn’t true, just seems that way.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Not that this is always a dealbreaker, but it would be a gutsy and probably stupid choice to go to BSM right now if you’re a top 9th-12th grader. Almost no spots available to play right now. 62 -This one would be worth it , if in fact rumors true and if things progressed . BSm picks up another firs...

Plenty of drama so stay tuned for the ugly details as they come out over the next few weeks. AD quit over the deal (ordeal). Actual top candidate turned it down. Not sure TE was even in the initial interview process. What a mess. Has any of the juicy details leaked out of Mendota Heights yet? I'm a...

Re: 2019 HP U17 or U16 Boys Rosters?

The real shame with MN Hockey’s HP program is the money they rake in from families all over the state who will never have a shot at making it to National Camp no matter how well they perform at the tryout. The hockey elites, and by that I mean those with influence in MN Hockey, will always get the ...
