Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

Wait until Marshall drops to A. They’ll put Centennial or Blaine in 7AA. I hope it’s Blaine. I wonder if Blaine would put CEC or Grand Rapids on their schedule. 7AA is wacko metro 7AA squads don’t schedule north 7AA squads. Duluth East plays Andover. Nobody else does in the north 7AA. DEast and Elk...

Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

Here’s my shot at ranking the strongest Class A sections, based on competitiveness near the top. There is a pretty clear gap between the top three sections and the others, though 5A is always an interesting ride. 1. 8A EGF, Warroad, TRF, Cannon Fodder 2. 6A SCC, Alexandria, Sartell, Little Falls 3. ...

Some of those teams may be in SCC conference, therefore they have to play them. Each AA Conference has dogs as well. Those are the teams they should crush.

Re: Pre Pre-season (summer) 2019-2020 Single A rankings

As a follow-up, I did my rankings prior to learning of the cross-border arrivals at EGF. If I were to re-rank based on that knowledge, I would probably put the Green Wave at #4 behind Mahtomedi. Yes, there is plenty of talent on the roster, but they also graduated a ton of scoring punch (and I tend ...

I'm also going to pose the question 7TIMECHAMPS did. See Noah Rupprecht has SCC listed as his HS team and not TRF. Anyone have insight to this? I am inclined to believe that is a mistake.

Dodge County made the A Bantam state tournament. They dropped from AA to A, they may be a year away from being very competitive in A.

They were teammates on the ...

Oh for crying out loud, talk about the rich getting richer. I’d set the line for the Breck/Blake games this season at about Blake -4.5 goals. Blake’s IMAC games will be ugly.

Strong depth in this group, maybe not the star power with the senior class compared to last year. Also, a correction, Syverson at Holy Angels will be a junior, not a senior.

I wouldn’t say weaker. But overall less star studded and Brimsek is definitely up for grabs.

If I am not mistaken, it is the exact same lineup of teams as last year. That final stretch starting with HM is brutal. Rapids could (and should) be much improved as a team, but still fail to crack .500 during the regular season.

Besides , Blake home ice is on the Hopkins campus 🤔 The school is across the street from Parade Stadium, Parade Park & Parade Ice Garden. Sure looks like a home game. Honest question. So Blake high school (grades 9-12) is on the Northrup campus next to Parade...Why not play high school games there?...
