Re: 8AA 2021-2022 Season

Might be giving Elk River too much credit. Leading scorer from last year bailed to chase a banner with another program. No immediate help coming from last years Bantam AA team. Offensive production will be a huge question mark this year for the Elks. Typical response from someone who has no clue wh...

Re: 21/22 Schedules

Waiting to see what kind of schedule Gentry was able to put together. Can they play anyone tough? You'd think Hill, Stillwater and White Bear Lake would give them a game since they could face them at sections... So far from what is posted on the Hub, Gentry is doing home-and-away series with severa...

Andover just might be a little motivated to turn the tables against Edina when they face off on Hockey Day in January (22nd).

There's no point in roasting anyone. Let these kids play where their parents want.
Fixed.
I'm not sure that changes the calculus.

Parents quite often move their kids into better academic schools. That's not roastable either, in my opinion.

Re: 2021-22 Transfers

Why is it several boys hockey teams get roasted when they have transfers in on a somewhat regular basis, but the girls teams really never do. Edina, Tonka, Andover, & Holy Family have had huge transfer numbers the past few years. There's no point in roasting anyone. Let these kids play where they w...

Edina will use an "E" on its uniforms (helmets, etc.) until they resolve the issue, and I believe they're trying to design ...

Re: Hockey Hub 21-22 top 26 AA teams

Gentry will not be a top 15 AA team next year The team does lose a lot of talent and a stellar goalie. Their end of season ranking will probably depend the most on: (1) whether any non-2021 grads go the Juniors route; and (2) the schedule. I think a #3 or #4 seed at Sections is a reasonable expecta...

Vegas with a convincing 7-1 win against Team Colorado. Interesting that Colorado has an 8-1 loss on their record to MSP Red, which is a group that is supposed to be several notches below the Vegas crew. I expected a somewhat more lopsided score, to be honest. Roberts looked very good. Team Colorado...

For what it's worth, it looks like hockey's not the only thing Gentry's going to dominate.

Since there's a turf bubble right next to the school building, attached...

With regard to Enright and Broz, we probably can answer this question by answering the question as to another absentee.
