Re: High school programs #s in Elite league

The easy way to solve this issue is to go back to one division for girls hockey. Format the postseason so 16 teams get to State. Use Tuesday of State tourney week to get the bracket from 16 to 8. Play those games at Ridder and Tria. Boot the 8 losing teams on Tuesday to the consolation bracket. Have...

Riley Reaves to Gentry
Gentry has about 10 new skaters this season in addition to Reeves.

A new one - McKenzie Rich from Benilde to Shattuck.

Re: Elite league

Stats are kept for the Elite League, but they aren't published.

The people that need to know the stats (scouts, league administrators) are provided those stats. Worry not. All the people you think are scoring lots of goals ("Shelton," etc) and making lots of saves (Bothun) are doing exactly that.

Re: High school programs #s in Elite league

Maybe because they would be put in the "mini state tournament" section with Edina, Blake, Wayzata and Benilde. Until that section changes, I don't see them moving any time soon. Can you imagine had they kept Minnetonka in there? Yesterday I read about the MSHSL dealing with a $400,000 deficit. The ...

Re: Tis the Transfer season...

I understand Edina has two move ins? One from Selects Academy and one apparently from Arizona who someone claimed will be their best forward this year? Anyone have details? I have heard this news as well. I think it's only one skater - a Penn State commit from Arizona, who played for Selects Academ...

Re: Rumors from the rink

How can attendance be made "mandatory" during the fall HS sports season? A majority of players show up if they can and race from the court/field/course to a game to do so. Maybe don't sign your child up if you can not make it. Nothing more frustrating for EVERYONE involved, when the commitment is w...

2022 grad commits to WI on 5/10 - so much for recruiting rules

A class of 2022 skater from South St. Paul committed to Wisconsin about two hours ago today (5/10). His Twitter post announcing the commitment is also today.

How is this possible?

Re: Development is YOUR responsibility

No, the best athletes are playing basketball or wrestling. Continue to make hockey inaccessible to 80% of the population. Development is a minor issue. If the kid can’t afford to even play hockey after the 4th grade development does not matter. Income does not equal talent. MN hockey better wrap th...

Re: Competitive Section Assignments

It is a distinct possibility that top 10 teams won't make the section semi-finals in 6AA and 7AA the next two years because they lose to higher ranked teams. That's absurd.

Re: Coaching changes 2019/2020

The WBL coach made sure his senior goalie and senior skaters were in a position to win the Section Final. He managed his situation well and put Frank in a position to win that game for the team. I think he did a fine job this year.

Fun game to watch for this neutral fan. Tonka wins 7-4 with an empty netter at the end.

But they panicked a little at the end, and a turnover gave Tonka th...
