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...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

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...

Re: New State Tournament Format (or my day dream)

There are 150 some teams in the state for boys hockey. Top 49 (based on enrollment) are AAA and you have 7 sections of 7 teams geographically. Section winners advance to state. The top 2 ranked teams to lose in Section finals have a one game playoff to earn the 8th spot at state. This protects for ...

Depends on who is making the decisions. Mariucci is Olympic sized ice and Amsoil in professional sized. D...

Re: 16 Subsection Model

I really like this idea. Would the teams get behind somewhat of an NFL style of scheduling too, like you have to play all teams in your section in a home and home, then you get a partner section that you split 2 at home, and 2 away. Then open for the conference and free scheduling? I think the 2 hom...

East up 2-0 in the 1st. Anderson and Donovan (pp) with the goals.

Lee
That PP goal was so smooth again. Lyle sliding it back door to Donovan just like the section final. The penalty was soft, it was a bad judgment call by the ref imo.

I wonder if the TRIA rink Minnesota Wild practice arena would be a better venue for the consolation games? That would definitely be interesting, and I think it would be a fun atmosphere. I'm curious how long the contract is for with Mariucci. If we are going to kick the wild out of their home games...

AA Consolation: Duluth East vs Lakeville South

I have my hounds if they can start passing the puck around better like they were in sections? Ricky Lyle is rendered useless if he doesnt get any passes. If that doesnt happen, Lakeville South will beat East again. 2012 rematch or a make up for their missed game earlier this year?

It was a good game by both teams. STA just buried their chances while DE hit a couple of solid pipes. Early on, I couldn't believe all the high hits by DE. Seemed like they were head hunting and finished every check with a hand/arm/elbow to the head. Good thing they settled down, otherwise this wou...
