The only way you can pull that off is to be a huge Association like Edina, or put together All-Star teams of the top players from all over a large Metro area. Hermantown has been able to do that. Duluth_Topper named all of the transfers and open-enrollees on all of those teams in a different thread...

I was just curious when the u18s left as I missed seeing some of the girls play. I didn’t say anything about these absences affecting their teams or bracket outcomes? The gold teams I was referring to that really struggled didn’t have any Team USA players. Again, ? I guess you needed to get that ran...

QUOTEIn the minutes of a Herm youth hockey board meeting from a year or two ago, they discussed the fact that recruiting of players from nearby associations was indeed happening and that there had been complaints from Herm parents about it. This is a fact. I read it myself on the association website...

Agree to disagree. As someone who also knows and has often spoken with the coach and AD, I can tell you they are proud to run up the score like this and have their top line players scoring their 5th goals in the third period. You act as if they were helpless to not score 20 goals. Play your 4th line...

Lots of great hockey top down. Some surprises in regards to a few highly ranked A and AA teams in the gold division who really struggled.

Question - when did the USA u18s head out of town? Did they play in their Christmas tourneys?

Happy 2018 hockey fans

Did anyone catch the score of the Warroad game today against some poor team from Minot ND? 20-rip . I suppose this is the type of notable performance no one wants to see. Would the MSHSL even count this game, or the stats that go with it? I know, Warroad cannot control who they get in a holiday tou...

Is it just me or did a lot of the teams and games seem a step down talent wise from last year? Is the program getting so big the talent is becoming watered down? Don't get me wrong, tons of high end talent and still an amazing program and opportunity. Curious what you guys think. Just my opinion.

Re: transfer

The MSHL could track the reason why students want to transfer athletic programs to see what the main reasons might be. I would guess the topic 2 reasons would be to get into a stronger program and/or better coaching. There are plenty of hockey coaches that don't have good reputations not to mention...

AAA: Machine lost in quarters, no MN team in semis or championship

AA: STE-19-2 won the quarter and semi, facing an incredible Assabet team for 1st place overall. TC Elites Galaxy lost 0-2 in their semi to finish 3rd

Great weekend!

Anyone have the 03 and 04 info?

Master schedules out today only show 8 Minnesota teams across all 5 levels? 8 out of what, 150 teams? Could this possibly be correct and/or have many realized that there isn't as much value in the big tourneys out East when Braemar hosts just as many coaches and recruiters all summer?
