Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Gov. Waltz is a politician by definition. He is on speed dial with the DNC and they will reward him. If you don’t believe me, then for God Sakes do some research on your own and make up your own mind instead of listening to what you see on Facebook. The Democrats didn’t create the Coronavirus. That’...

Re: Role of the Minnesota State High School League

In case you missed it in yesterday's Star Tribune, an article on the transfer rule: https://www.startribune.com/minnesota-high-school-athlete-eligibility-rules-get-fresh-scrutiny/570753382/ In short, it quotes a legislator who believes the transfer rules should be less stringent than many of us com...

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

Dan Stauber has stepped down at Proctor. What! That's crazy!! So now will Pionk run the entire show now???? That's too bad. Stauber and Pionk seemed to make the perfect 1, 2 punch...... He resigned from a nice gig at UWS for Proctor and the opportunity to build a program. He must have an offer in h...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Raising taxes to fund high school sports when our communities and local businesses are experiencing shutdowns with 20+% unemployment is likely not realistic. I think it all depends on the community, of course. And that’s the beauty of a referendum, the property owners decide. You’re talking about a...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

FWIW, no MSHSL athletic department can survive without the income football generates, unless we allow fans there is no reason to play the games. So would you say that the loss of football could cause a domino effect on other sports for the upcoming season? It’s hard to envision a school committing ...

Several of you are saying the flu killed 60,000 people in 2018. That is with a vaccine available that a lot of people took. Think about it.
I’m not exactly sure what your point is, but 98% of those people that died did not take the flu shot.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

[It seems odd to me that some of those same west suburban teams are now willing to play the Duluth-area team that shall not be named. Stang - the reason is those Western teams were losing players to Breck. It's a no win situation if Wayzata (for example) played Breck and lost to them. Then - Breck ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

It’s weird anyone is worried about “a Class A team” when the only one that is a) in close proximity to a usually good HS program, and b) has an overwhelming consensus agreeing they are in no way representative of Class A is Hermantown. Warroad plays Roseau Cathedral plays St. Cloud East Grand Forks...

I see Lakeville South played one also. East played two, so it looks like they have them all beat. Denfeld, which is required by...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Since 2008 Edina & Eden Prairie have played in the championship game 5 times each. Since the schools are in proximity, it would be strange if their hockey teams refused to play each other. Of course it would. They are in the same class, same conference. It would be strange if East didn’t play Cloqu...

Do the NHL Scouts ask you what happens when Edina, EP, Minnetonka and Wayzata play Mahtomedi every year? That could be a hell of a rivalry!! Top Metro A team against top Metro AA teams. Why won’t those teams make it happen? Why would they, Mahtomedi plays their natural geographic rivals Stillwater ...

Denfeld has a Punchers Chance against them next year on paper. But that’s today’s paper. We have no idea who will be playing in Hermantown next year. We’ll know more at the June tryouts when Andrews can get a look at all of the kids that want to come and play there.
