Re: Ryder Donovan to Wisconsin

Here is the question I have. Why would a player agree to spend a year in Juniors and then put pen to paper committing to a school that wants him to do that? The way I see it, that school can keep recruiting and upgrading your position group, defer you off one year of Juniors, two years of Juniors, ...

Re: 8AA playoffs

I wasn't able to make any games tonight due to a work conflict. Any reports from Roseau from either 7 or G n W? How about Brainerd? I thought the first two periods were pretty evenly played. Roseau had more zone time but St Cloud did a good job of limiting chances and then coming back with a few of...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

That isn’t a totally accurate comparison. 1. Chisago and Rapids didn’t start in the same position. So obviously it will be easier for a lower ranked team to make big jumps against lower competition. This would explain why Edina didn’t have a huge score jump when they beat Tonka. It is just as much ...

Impossible? Not at all. Just a few minutes of research.

Re: 8AA seeding

Pretty much what was expected. About as cut and dry of a year as you could have due to so many season series sweeps among teams that were close. The only vote that really made me wonder was Rogers voting St Cloud over Bemidji. Bemidji had 3 section wins and a tie. Included in those wins was a win ov...

Re: 8AA 2018-2019 seaso

So 7, if Brainerd were to lose to both STMA and Moorhead and end up 5-5 in section play.......are they still automatically the three seed? I think they are. Who would you move ahead of them? They beat Buffalo twice and Buffalo’s section record at 4-5-1 (assuming they beat Rogers) isn’t great either...

Re: 8AA 2018-2019 seaso

The Bison have been playing really well of late. It’s also worth pointing out that Jake Braccini had SIX GOALS last night, and it wasn’t against a chopped liver team. In a strange way, I think Buffalo would have actually been better positioned as the six seed. Yes, the quarterfinal game would have ...

And there was no high shot in the retaliation crosscheck or intent to injure there? Since when is retaliating NOT a penalty? I guess when you wear a Rams jersey it's not? Like I said, just let it go. Just for context the first crosscheck the players were away from the play with Huglen face down on ...

Sounds like a barn burner in Roseau. Was anyone there that has some color commentary? Thought East side outplayed Roseau, as the shots would indicate.

The Duluth East game at Grand Rapids from 2016 is a prime example of the best rivalry. You can’t get a more electric vibe during the regular season.

In my opinion STA should be higher than Moorhead. STA has a stronger schedule(Pagestat) and a better record. They beat the same two teams that you gave Moorhead the 12 spot based on (Benilde and Stillwater), but their body of work after that is better (including tying an EP team that just beat Moor...
