Re: Ryder Donovan to Wisconsin

What created the glut of supply? I would argue that the use of juniors has expanded the age range of the players and therefore expanded the supply. A much bigger issue in my eyes is the expansion of hockey into most of the country. When states are turning out 5 Div I players each year those are com...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

I think that East is somewhat of a mystery team right now. Thanks to Karl and others for providing us insight into what they've done in the games they have played since Jan. 26. Even in the 2nd Cloquet game, Randolph still seemed to be tinkering a bit. They haven't played many games recently, which...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

. . . I’m going to be curious to see what kind of forecheck East will run, and will that be adjusted vs Andover provided they advance past their rivals?

I guess I was wrong; I was thinking Andover by 5.
You may be right but game is at East.
Just trolling Elliott
Amsoil is West of Lake Ave, so technically not East Duluth. Central or West.

Re: 7AA tonight tuesday

Well we can certainly hope the underdog can pull it off. Those poor kids on top of the hill have so very little. This is about the only match up in the state where I would pull for the private over the public. I was cheering for East but I totally get what you're saying. I have a lot of respect for...

With the South win over North, a team other than a Lakeville will get the top seed in 1AA. Not playing the Rochester schools or Hastings did not pan out for them this year.
You think North would have got it if they won? Did Hastings and Century play each other????? Can anybody answer that?

Re: AA Rankings for 2/10/19

I can’t see Hastings falling below South or Century. Century choose to not make up the Farmington game, meaning their toughest opponent the entire season was Mayo. Century has a 6-1 loss to Albert Lea and a 7-3 loss to Duluth Marshall. South has a losing record I don’t think Hastings is the best te...

Well if Mr. Pionk posts on here bashing the Hawks program, the people, players etc. then I think he would fall in the fan club. What little I read about him is that he strongly feels the Hawks should have moved up. I would be in the same boat as him. When I come up to Mn. I am surprised how little ...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

That isn’t a totally accurate comparison. 1. Chisago and Rapids didn’t start in the same position. So obviously it will be easier for a lower ranked team to make big jumps against lower competition. This would explain why Edina didn’t have a huge score jump when they beat Tonka. It is just as much ...

As much as I hate to say it if Hermantown does not move up rapids should drop them next year, play Bemidji and brainerd home and home it’s the same distance. I am also sure you could probably get Moorhead and Roseau to also play home and home just play greenway for single A teams once a year like e...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

The section uses QRF because Grand Rapids got "screwed" by the coaches in the 2017 vote. As much as people like to blame the southern coaches for using QRF, it was Rapids that initiated, lobbied for, and drove the change. And, as much as people may want it, there is no chance that there will be a f...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

It takes longer some years, but Randolph has his team right where he wants them right now. They will win the Section and be back at State. Hope they get at least a 5 seed to set up a possible Semi with Edina.

Why wouldHermantown ever merge with anybody, that is the dumbest idea ever, also your fantasy 7A and 7AA sections are just that FANTASY. I realize you would have to add a few teams to the five in 7A but it could easily be done. Mora might be a good fit and then you could look to the St. Cloud area....

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I don’t foresee the East End Consolidation opting up unless they have sustained success at the A level and that of course includes the youth level. I also think Ely will end up co-opting with them. Hibbing would be a more likely candidate. 7A would change dramatically except for Hermantown winning ...
