Re: The Hermantown Thread

Anecdotal at best. Nobody to my recollection came out and stated Alex should move up. See the “What in the world just happened to the Hermantown Hawks” thread from last March. Somebody did say it even if the consensus from most was that they shouldn’t yet. Let me know when the Alexandria Opt Up thr...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Anyone that gets momentum going in their program could conceivably do it. Who would be most likely right now? Probably SCC followed by Mahtomedi, EGF, and Alex. That isn't the point I am making though. I am saying you can't kick teams out just because they are good. Isn't that getting back to the T...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

They are playing in the class that the MSHSL has put them in. Maybe you should write to the MSHSL about how unfair life is. And sorry but somebody is going to teach them that so why not Hermantown kids? No, the MSHSL gives them, as a Class A team, the choice which class to play in. Yeah, I suppose ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

The handful of teams that can actually compete for a class A state title usually could compete pretty well at a AA level. You have pointed this out. So every two years you are saying each team should self assess if they are one of those few top teams with a shot at a title. And if you are you should...

Right and wrong is for the justice system and religion, for me what is right is how I treat people. The kids are being hurt. After working their hardest to compete with the best in AA ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

This is exactly what Bruce Plante did when he couldn't beat STA or Breck. Shouldn't we hold Hermantown to the same standard set by the patriarch of their hockey program? I don't like that Bruce did that either. That is why I spoke negatively about that sort of behavior. But the cycle has to stop so...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

So more squads throughout the state using loopholes is good for hockey? I would hardly consider what Hermantown does a "loophole". If so all private schools use the same loophole. As have several others in the past (see Warroad in the glory years). If you want to make a rule that says a kid can't p...

The MSHSL ‘s loopholes have been exposed by Hermantown hockey. More squads throughout the state should expose these loopholes as well. Hermantown isn’t breaking any MSHSL rules.

I would also add that it is early in the year and too much emphasis shouldn't be placed on one game.

Re: New Sheriff in 8AA??

I would say that bus legs/not being ready was definitely a factor for Moorhead. Roseau came out and dominated the first roughly 12 minutes of the game. At one point the shots were like 14-3 and Roseau had 4 goals. Moorhead made a push the last 5 minutes as usually happens in these types of games to ...

Re: Scrimmage scores

Did FL new girl goalie play?? Yes, and looked very good. State needs another Maddie Rooney! That is tremendous. Not sure I 100% agree. I don’t know all of the details of this situation but she is taking away another kid’s opportunity to play high school hockey. That individual can’t then go play on...

Their may have been a buzz or too at Shep's last night after the big win over the young Lumberjacks but the Wizard of Aus still hasn't figured out how to peel the Spuds as evidenced by Tuesday nights thrashing of the Worriors. Boys might have thought they could get a mulligan to replay and hit the ...

Re: 8AA 2018-2019 seaso

Moorhead started the season with taking highly ranked Andover to OT. I am feeling more confident all the time. Was anybody at this game that can provide some perspective? The shots ended 43-27 according to the hub. Was this roughly indicitive of play? I am assuming the new Moorhead goalie played we...

Thanks for proving my point. I said "I see the teams actually play." I did not say ...."watch so much hockey that you know more than anyone else does."

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 you; it's right after the word "seasons". p.s. I'm off to enjoy the day. See ya ...

Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

8a will be weak again, with the title between EGF or Warroad. 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 ...

Thanks for getting this going, Stang. Tony says Mankato East should be somewhere on a watch list as well, which I'll buy given their youth success and State trip last season. It is striking how few metro area teams appear to be real contenders at this point. Mahtomedi is the only sure contender, re...
