Brendan Bushy wore it for them so I assumed there was some significance.
Nah, like I said, kids have worn it for many years.

Re: TRF

It just seems weird to have a #66... Also, I know some schools/colleges have traditions surrounding certain numbers. I was just wondering if there was a similar tradition with #66. Kids have been wearing that number at TRF for decades. Just another number. Not quite sure I understand why it wouldn'...

What is the story, if any, behind #66 for Thief River Falls?
In terms of what ?

Re: Games Monday - Tuesday

Final: OT EGF - 4, Shots - 27 TRF - 3, Shots - 22 Whew! Yeah, TRF outplayed EGF second and third period. Good game. EGF did a lot of standing around, especially in the slot, which gave TRF two goals. They also made a lot of bad decisions with the puck throughout the night. Their defensemen had an o...

Re: Section 8A thoughts

Regarding the TRF goalie, the last two games saw the injured pre-season pick for starter return to play. Did well, so they seem to have two able goalies.

Re: Class A Rankings 12-9-18

The SCC - TRF game was a good game. SCC was flat the first period (road weary maybe) but heavily dominated play the other two periods. Score could have easily been not as close, but they did a lot of "one more pass before shooting" that lead to the usual no shot at all, and a lot of their shots were...

Re: Class A TOP 20 Week 2

Not sure if I'd call St. Paul Johnson and Minneapolis better than average A teams, but TRF is playing well and without their starting goalie (injury).

Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

Something to keep in mind with many top 8A schools and their ".500 records": Their strength of schedule is very strong. Many play GF Central (who have lost one game the past two years), GF Red River, Moorhead, Bemidji, Roseau. I believe EGF plays all those schools 2x/year. You may knock ND High Sch...

EGF generally carried play and created better scoring chances, particularly on the PP. They did a nice job of killin...

Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

Good grief So why don’t you explain the point you were trying to make when you said “I see teams actually play. Novel idea, eh? Every year. For many years.” To me it sounds like you are saying that your analysis is more accurate than results or computerized rankings. And I added the “watch so much ...

Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

TRF was 18-11-2 last year, hardly what would qualify as "barely above .500" Lee I meant the regular seasons, seeing as two of the three didn't have the same amount of games. Why would the playoffs not count? Other than because it disproves what you said. The answer is in my reply. Make it easy for ...

Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

Just taking records without the context of the schedule is a poor way to judge teams. If we did that LOW would be the best team from 8A last year with a record of 16-5-3. Using a rating system like Pagestat (while not perfect) that does take this into account is far superior. Using Pagestat 8A had ...

Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

Why pick on 8A? It will be in the better half of A sections. Last year they ended with 3 teams in the top 15 (Pagestat) and TRF went 2-1 at the state tournament. EGF brings in a nice crop of young players from bantams and I believe this group of Warroad kids had a runner up in youth hockey. If you ...

I wouldn’t waste your energy. You are talking to a person that doesn’t understand the concept of SOS or even results.

Looking at EGF regular season schedule from last year: Losses to Orono, Delano, Roseau, Warroad, GF Central, GF RR, Moorhead, Greenway, Bemidji & Crookston Outside of Crox, which of those losses would you consider weak teams? Bemidji was no powerhouse, but not bad either. Also, decent read for HS h...
