Re: Will Curt Giles ever get his due?

Let's not forget they cut 3/4 of the players that tryout for HS, law of averages and history shows he has more talent as a whole than most schools every year to choose from (except MG from #'s). He should be able to win more consistently. Not saying anything about him not being a good coach, but so...

Re: New Body Contact Rules

I didn't see anyone say anything about going out of your way to "finish a check". Finishing should be as a part of the play, many times if you dont "finsh" and let that guy go free.. you are out of the play..

Everyone here knows that there is far too much small stuff that people get away with that can't be called, otherwise it would be a...

Re: New Body Contact Rules

I’m probably in the minority but I think the changes are positive and just hope they stick with them and get the change in play they are looking for. There is nothing exciting about grinding physical play. A skil game is way more exciting and it’s an entertainment business. I also disagree with the...

Duluth Marshall! That’s not going to last long. Hermantown and Duluth East gobble up all local recruits. They moved to 7AA to protest the hamsters being in 7A. Please go back.

Re: New Body Contact Rules

This issue over the past few years has been one of my biggest complaints. I am a big guy, who has some speed but not top tier. I don't have great hands but can shoot alright if given some room. I am the enforcer on most of my teams in charge of keeping other players in check. With all of that in min...

I wonder what he is going to do. He wasn't picked up by an NAHL team. Think Randolph will take him back?

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

I really like how they have formated this, for the most part. It seems as if the cities teams have all been mashed together. The Plains and North teams seem to have outline's to an extent, but I feel that may be more for ride-sharing and hotels. A few surprises from the "North" team this year, GR ha...

Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

I agree with Kniven on this one - for a coach to use the words "banish" to a player sounds way out of character. If he said he was going to leave and the coach doesn't play him and opens up a spot for another player, that sounds like moving forward. However what do I know...everyone can act a bit i...

Re: Wisconsin has its own Hermantown in Superior

Superior will not hurt Hermantown's "recruiting" The Wisco Tourney is not nearly the same as ours. It's quite sad to see pictures actually. Superior is also not alone in D2, Northland Pines, which is from Eagle River area, was in the top 3 all year, and they are in Div. 2. They are also far smaller ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

What would be an interesting statistic is what percentage of a team’s roster is on free and reduced lunch. I know for Greenway’s full roster there is only one player (bench player) who might be on free/reduced lunch. This f/r lunch figure has a significant impact on the pool of kids that will/can g...

So, what's the answer. What could the MSHSL do to stop this from continuing to happen? Seems pretty rare nowadays to see top teams with all homegrown kids. And to me that is what made MN high school hockey special. It's turning into Midget or Junior hockey where kids can pick and choose where they ...

Re: State of Hockey's Team

A lot of you have been talking about the age limit in NCAA hockey. There currently is a limit to when a player can start his freshman year of playing hockey. The current age is 21, although the BIG10 tried to get it down to 20 a few years ago and were attacked for it. I have listed a few articles ab...
