1A rankings

Perhaps the pending demise of EGF is a bit premature. They may be shaky at Goaltending but they look like someone will have to kill the king before they take their crown. Rankings look good. While Hermantown Single A looks more balanced than in a long-long time.

Class A

I love Class A hockey: The focus on this board is almost exclusively AA Hockey and sometimes I get annoyed by that. While I'm not going to pretend that there is parity between AA and A schools, I would suggest that the top 4-5 Class A teams can play with the elite teams in the state each year. Thing...

Why did Palmo step down

He said for family and business opportunities. Does it matter? Koberinski was the AD should be a very good coach and continue their connections with UND. I would like to see Scott Oliver remain with the program for the sake of the kids, but those are personal decisions.

Hermantown

I thought I heard Hermy was going to be a little thin next year too. I see they have a pretty good goal tender returning, but they lost a lot of scoring. I don't know who they have coming up, but I imagine they are reloading. I want to see them in the title game again, hard to imagine how heavy that...

EGF

There is no indication that the community is pushing him out. That community does not have a history of micromanaging coaches. I'm sure they will find a quality replacement. They have a strong tradition and feeder system and I have no doubt they will remain competitive. Outside Moorhead and until re...

EGF

I admit it isn't fair to judge a person without all the information. I'm sure the community of East Grand Forks is happy with two state championships and that Hermantown would have wished Palmiscino wasn't there. We spend a lot of time talking about kids staying home and playing high school hockey. ...

EGF Coaching

Makes you wonder how bare the cupboards will be at EGF? At first glance Scott Oliver would seem the logical choice if he wants the job. That said, Financial planning must be pretty good in EGF; or no goal tending and one returning d might add to changing priorities.

This might be my favorite. I only see a couple problems.... In December you might have a problem with thin ice on the river... Personally, I think it could be a minor problem. The other problem is the wind, nothing like a nice 30mph wind to skate into. Its like skating up a 30 floor building... Nice...

Top lines

Watching every game of the Tournament. I watched a lot of hockey... While Playing in the A tournament the top line of Bowen, Loven, and Tweten looked to be the best line in the state. I know that Malmquist went down for Edina and the Lakeville North line is outstanding. I saw Karl'sEast description ...

Joking aside

Sadly, Hermantown may be the best Minnesota A team over the last 6 years, they haven't been the best team in any of those years. Call it luck, curse or whatever. This season, they won their last 25 before the final. But EGF was better in March. Neither Mahtomedi or Hermantown could match up with EGF...

I think its interesting question if Tweten and Loven come back. Two state titles it would be easy to jump to the USHL. Both have strong community ties and I hope they stay. Its was hardly a secret that Bowen was going to relocate seven miles to the west, nor has there been any secret both are on Hak...

Gutty performances.

The only thing better than the amazing comeback from Hermantown was EGF's ability to maintain composure. I'm not sure EGF was the deepest team but they had more top end talent. Hats off to EGF coaching staff! Palmiscino and Oliver put it together after losing their top 4 D'men last season. They out ...

On the bashing bandwagon

A couple points: What was Plante thinking, as everyone agrees, that was shameful. I don't hate Hermantown, or their players. I dislike teams being classless. EGF had beaten down Hermantown last year and had them 7-2 with five minutes to play and EGF dumped the bench. I'm not sure what Plante Proved ...

Wickets...

He seems to have a strange fascination for Wickets. But I'm waiting for his savvy quote, "You can't give a good player a bad pass." I know it's only two games into the tournament, but I know it is coming.

I trust he wont disappoint me.
