Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

Strange how McCarville is disregarded. He had a bad playoff game against a hot and experienced South team. My guess if Hastings was in 4AA he would be a top 5 goalie but since he is in 1AA he must suck. Go figure the bias here. Alex Kangas is one of the top Gopher goalies, Charlie Lindgren played i...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

I cant speak for Blades or Blizzard, but I think Blue army U18 is a Select team, not Tier 1? They will play the NAHL showcase in Blaine as a guest. As a guest of NAPL, they will not get to play the top NAPL teams, rather they play weak teams and smoke them. For the UHSL, they get to play at Omaha s...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

I agree that things have been changing and there are more options. I also agree that certain teams and coaches have more pull than others. Nobody can tell me that the 7-9 guys from Minnetonka are all better than some of the kids that were passed over. I have known some kids that I thought were lock...

Re: Pre Pre-season (summer) 2019-2020 Single A rankings

Class A Guy - two more adds to watch: 1) South St. Paul - was in section semi's last year in Section 4A - Should have a solid first line with two very good D men. Should hover in bottom of Top 20. 2) SPA - Four solid D and solid goaltender. They may struggle to score though - but shouldn't give up t...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

EP is a top 3 team now in my opinion. May be a Mr. Hockey Finalist. GB GB, have you seen him play? I've not, but I see he is 5' 8" and was the 7th leading scorer on a midget team from California. If he's that good, someone should make a run at getting the number 1-6 scorers. They aren't out of Cali...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

On the Elite League roster - it has Marshall. There is another goalie on the list for the Goalie St. Cloud camp that isn't going to the HS next to his name. I'd venture to say the Elite League roster is more accurate. So you're suggesting that he registered for the camp as attending TG and then cha...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

No doubt about it, Section 2 and Section 6 are the premier sections. The Lake Conference is easily the best in the state. Section 7 is probably third but only because of Andover. Agreed. 7AA is has more single A programs that want to play with the big boys....... Isn't there only 2 programs that ac...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

They sold GA months ago. And BS is going back to Gentry - U16 team. Wow, I guess I'll eat crow on that one to some extent, I was talking about him playing Gentry HS, but I suppose the U16 team could be decent. Although they won't have the Lucius brothers and I think a few others were also leaving i...

Someone with a kid at GA told me that there's a possibility he goes to the GA high school team...which seems crazy to me. You'd be paying the same $ to go to either GA or STA, as far as education...

Rochester Century ups their schedule with non conference games at Bemidji and Duluth Marshall and home games against Breck and Hastings. No games against the Lakeville schools hurts, Hastings plays North though along with STA and Hill Murray.
They played Duluth Marshall last year.

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

Stang - list looks pretty complete when you add Weyandt. I agree - lacks the real high end star power - but some good depth from top to bottom.

Three other adds to the list above:

Zach Weise (12) - Owatonna
Tyler Steffens (12) - WBL
Will Pinney (12) - St. Louis Park

I’m going to assume “big time” that Clafton leaving Grand Rapids early are total rumors. With that being said, I think Grand Rapids will once again carry the big stick for our 218 North Hockey puck this coming season. Sounds like Duluth East is their own “Esse” type drama within the program. CEC on...
