Re: BHS Hockey Podcast - Turning Points

Stangs - yeah, I know that BP has a rink. When I said BP, I was referring to the corridor of communities along 252/65 within a radius of Columbia (NE MPLS, Fridley, Columbia Heights, BP, New Brighton). Demographic or not, any loss of indoor ice is bad for the game. Rebuilding hockey in the inner ri...

Re: BHS Hockey Podcast - Turning Points

Great stuff from the tres amigos. The surprise podcast brightened up my Sunday, and I particularly enjoyed some of the historical discussion. Two points I wanted to follow up on... 1. Tony mentioned the closure of Columbia as being the death knell for hockey in places like Columbia Heights and Brook...

Re: Goalies moving on to next level

Josh Weyandt for Chan and Will Pinney for St. Louis Park didn't get much attention because of the teams they played on but they should get a chance. Maybe Caleb Mayer as well. I stumbled across a few Chanhassen game streams this year, and Weyandt was the only reason they were competitive. You prett...

Re: Goalies moving on to next level

I’ll throw in Konrad Kausch from Duluth East. He was main reason they beat some of the top 10 teams this past season. He can also play the puck like a 3rd D man Interesting perspective, since he was buried on JV for the past few years. While Randolph played musical chairs with goalies, Kausch didn’...

Goalies moving on to next level

I know we had a thread like this last year, and with things being slow I thought it would be worthwhile to kick off the speculation as to which goaltenders will land on junior team rosters this fall (assuming we have a season). Bearing in mind that I know little about goalie evaluation, I would thin...

Re: Section 4AA 20-21

The Pioneers have also had some outstanding players from the Park-Cottage Grove system. Just recently Pierre, Palodichuk, and Helgeson have all come from there. Didn't Helgeson come from Roseau? And then the family lived in Lake Elmo? I remember that now, you’re absolutely correct. Sorry for the ba...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Warroad finished fourth, but would most likely romp through this field. In that respect I would think it would be less entertaining, though Wednesday games would be more competitive. Here’s a shot at seeding: 1. Warroad 2. Delano 3. Denfeld 4. Alexandria 5. Monticello I could see an argument for Del...

Re: Role of the Minnesota State High School League

No open enrollment? Talk about a non-starter. Pretty sure Minnesota is the first state to allow. You can also add the idea of preventing students from attending private schools in a different community. I’m a bit biased given that I am a private school alumnus, but the public schools in my communit...

Re: Section 6A 2019-20

Agree on the Otters. To me they were the team that improved the most during the year this year. It’s pretty amazing that FF went from being destroyed by Sartell 10-0 in early December to slashing the Sabres 7-2 just over a month later. The Otters really came on strong once the calendar turned to 20...

Re: Charlie Strobel

Elite Prospects should not be used as a source for when players will enter college. I understand the timing on when to bring kids in is fluid. Is Heisenberg the best source? That's where I'd look. Heisenberg just lists commitments by birth year, and unfortunately doesn’t list projected enrollment. ...

Re: Charlie Strobel

Will he play juniors first or is he another Sammy Walker? Strobel is listed as a 20-21 commit, so presumably a season of juniors. Motzko has stressed that he wants the Gophers to be older, so that would make sense. Isn't 20-21 this coming Fall? Ha, I’m getting so old that I don’t even realize what ...
