Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

Wanted to see Mahtomedi but have had a soft spot in my heart for Greenway going all the way back to when Henry B. took on Edina. I think I was 11. Will never forget that game and what I thought was the dirtiest display of hockey ever...

( I can also say that my alma mater lost to the eventual state champion in OT in the section final, for whatever that is worth. (It was a rough year for Breck, so that qualifies as a positive.) What a laugh. You ripped on Breck all year and now you are gleaning positives? What a hypocrite. Mustangs ...

State of Hockey Live Streaming

State of Hockey is live streaming 25 games which is great! Closer look shows that Eden Prairie is in nine of them. Of the 50 team/games, only one is single A-Hermantown. A couple of good A games would have been nice.

It always bothers the heck out of me when posters (or more accurately, posers) act like they have knowledge of a situation when they don't. So tell us when, how or who essentially declared Breck is "getting out of the hockey business". You won't because you can't. It isn't true. OK, first of all se...

Two of the measuring stick games come early in the season, against Orono and Cathedral. Breck has essentially declared that they are getting out of the “hockey business” in terms of preferential admission and financial aid treatment for hockey players. So Breck probably only has a few years left as ...

Re: Rising and declining programs

This question occurred to me while perusing the 7AA thread, since it seems to be a nearly unanimous opinion that Andover will be a program on the rise based on the coaching and talent coming up through the ranks. So what are some of the other programs that are set up to improve significantly over t...

The student would be eligible to play varsity sports without sitting out a year. I h...

There is no such thing as a 10 minute game misconduct. Most likely just a 10 minute misconduct along with the double minor. There won't be any suspension from a 10-minute misconduct - only from a game misconduct. Agree this is a BIG game that deserves plenty of chatter... According to the Hockey Hu...

Re: Centennial Vs Maple Grove

I like Maple Grove in this one. No disrespect to Centennial and if The Crimson are to win, they will have to earn it. MG has a very solid blueline corp with nice skill up front. They break the puck out very well and have strong senior leadership. They look ready and they are going to be tough to beat.

Sophomores with upside potential

I thought it would be fun to show some love to some unheralded sophomores who exhibit nice potential to develop into big impact players in the next two years. No need to mention the players who already get alot of mentions IMO. Any ideas out there?

Tonka win could mean 2 probably 3 seed.

Who wins?
I like Tonka's grit and hard work but I question their offensive ability. Not enough puck movement and play making. Alot of good individuals but limited team cohesion.
