Re: 7AA 2018-2019

Some concerns with Elks after 1 game goes without saying. Will revisit after a few more games.

The Lake voted this week to not accept STMA as conference member. Kicked out of the Miss. 8 and turned down by 2 conferences the MSHSL will have to place them in a conference. Probably the Lake? Does the MSHSL “place” teams in conferences?? I understood the MSHSL only established Section assignment...

I have no idea if that was my source. I never wish any program have their kids leave early. My source says squirt level look nice at Elk. You can’t have the most talent each year.....even if your Elk. And then even when you do....the program still can’t get by 218 puck. Elks only hope is to be remo...

Jeez, was hoping for the summer off. Elks will be competitive this year and why would anyone want to spend a season in Green Bay anyway? The are some pending arena issues and maybe some would say changes in the youth coaching may be a factor. My take is I see big numbers in youth hockey but maybe no...

The Roseau game has been ugly the past couple years, so re-adding the Spuds as the other half of the 8AA road trip only makes sense. Eagan has some nice parts coming up and should be an upgrade over Jefferson. Champlin Park for Anoka just trades one mid-tier 5AA team for another--not one they've ev...

As a future member of the Lake conference after this year maybe STMA will be moved out of 8AA. I wouldn’t bet on it. 8AA is difficult to fill out as things currently stand, and removing STMA creates a huge domino effect of realignment. Plus, not all of the Lake teams are in the same section anyway....

STMA joining the Lake conference, it has been agreed upon.
Maple Grove would like to join the Lake also I'm sure but admin won't let them split from from Osseo and PC.

STMA hockey is going to be huge, or is huge already. The next "superpower" in AA Minnesota State High School Hockey. While the population growth in that area is bordering on explosive, with lots of new young families building homes and moving in, most of the residences you see going up are of the "...

The growth of the STMA school district is hard to keep up with. They probably should have had a little more foresight and been looking to move a few years ago. The NWSC would a perfect fit and would have kept some good rivalries and with an enrollment of 1800 they are skipping a step in the progress...

STMA

The NWSC voted Friday to only accept Rogers into the league for 2019-20. Keeps it at a 14 team league as Irondale drops out of the league.
Would think the Lake is the only league that would take them? Buffalo also applied and was turned down.

Stay tuned? Others? The only other two D1 spots open right now.....that I am aware of....is Alaska-Fairbanks and Alaska-Anchorage. Seems like all the initial candidates for Anchorage, aside from one, have backed out. Fairbanks is not looking that attractive to many either. I don't necessarily see a...

Is my understanding that the X is rent free for the the girls tourney. The X is not rent free for anything. the tourneys that sell out, subsidize the tourneys that do not.

Have not heard of any yet but would not be shocked if Orono is looking for a new coach! Why would Orono want a new coach? They did win the Class A Championship. I believe he was being sarcastic. Orono has a long history of chewing up and spitting out hockey coaches... including some very good ones....
