Re: National Championships

Are these competitions in which MN doesn't typically field its best talent? MN fields a team that represents a youth District. So it is not a State team, it is a regional team within the state. And they still go and compete very well at nationals. If we sent down a team that was selected from acros...

Re: 2019 HP U17 or U16 Boys Rosters?

April 1 was official start of Spring season, just mentioning it since you both referenced April 6.

Although most Spring teams have been doing captains practices since early March.

Cambridge-Isanti to 5A from 7AA
St Francis and Cambridge drop to class A and Anoka moved into 7AA.
Give 7AA just 8 teams.
Room for H-Town?

So TG into 5AA and Anoka into 7AA, am I missing anything else?
Northfield from 4A to 1AA
St. Francis from 7AA to 5A
7AA also loses Cambridge-Isanti to 5A

What, so we can congratulate Edina on winning both the AA and A High School Tourneys? This already sounds boring.

I don't think the official thread has been started, but you can put Rogers on the list. Much like Shakopee, Rogers could be a good opportunity, and perhaps to an even greater extent.

Would be surprised to see Michaelis in an Elk jersey next year.
@blueline, what are the young mans options for next season?
Wish him well wherever he ends up.
He's playing with Waterloo in the USHL right now, so that would be the top option.

Time to mute the t.v. Female announcer just said "the referee just threw a penalty flag!" Sorry lady you are announcing hockey not football. Her counterpart is blah blah blah I know.

Parrish is great with his stories. There’s no game to call. It’s pretty much up to the announcers to keep people tuned in. We’re going to need a lot of stories to get through this one.
Well now we're getting a taste of his man-crush on Cullen.

Parrish has spent more time talking about his high school team than the game he's calling.
And he just said "shutout." I don't care the context of what he was saying, you don't say that word until the game is over.

The woman announcer is too slow. And I don't give a dang about FRIENDS. Parrish is okay. I really, really wanted her to do well, it's a pretty cool opportunity she's been given. Unfortunately she seemed overwhelmed at the start of the game, almost like she completely mind blanked on any player name...

Exiled One - does your plan also include some framework for how many teams an association should declare and what level they should declare them at? That, to me, is the root problem. As long as we continue to leave team declarations up to individual associations we will continue to have this kind of...

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

1) Regarding B level hockey: Recognize two levels of B, call them BB/B if you want to follow AA/A. Or, conversely, tell districts and associations to stop doing B1/B2 and only declare AA/A/B/C. 2) Regarding C level hockey: Create regional/state tourneys for Peewee and Bantam C. This might create a ...
