Re: Summer Scrimnages

The MDH isn’t allowing indoor competitions until at least July 29th. The MSHSL is following that guidance/edict. I doubt any school will go Townball on the MSHSL. Not saying you’re necessarily wrong, but can you provide a link to this info? Just last week the MDH said July 1st for indoor competitio...

Re: Summer Scrimnages

But if spectators are allowed , the Edina Mayor with support of city Council will in all likelihood have passed a citywide “wear a mask indoor“ rule by then. Unless there is an exception for indoor athletic spectators , versus people working or entering Edina offices or going to shopping malls for ...

So if you don’t think it’s 99.9999%, then what do you think it is? You’re admitting you don’t know the exact number. So why not 99.9%? You’re right, I’m definitely not saying it’s like the flu. It’s pretty established that this is an order of magnitude worse for the population as a whole. When you b...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

I am in my mid 50’s now.....I went to college, then joined the Army, I went into teaching after that. When I first got out of the Army I was a teacher and a football coach in small town Iowa. After a couple of years my school, like many at the time, had budget cuts and my position was cut. However,...

Also Minnesota hockey announced they are having a fall tier 1 season. Obviously things can change and that decision isn’t tied to schools being in session, but that combined with the U of M info is encouraging. When looking to what will happen in the fall/winter school and sports seasons, look less ...

Your idea of testing everybody on the way in is certainly more effective, but I would argue on the cost comparison. Plus, if the bubble masks were required that cost would almost certainly be passed on to individual players and their family, much like a stick or most other other required equipment (...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

I’ve got a crazy idea that many may scoff at, but for hockey at least, can’t they just require kids to wear the plastic bubbles on their helmets? Won’t be perfect, as they have holes on the bottom, but essentially so do the nurse face shields. Obviously not a 100% solution for everything, but seems ...

Good to see some MN HS boys get drafted and are the same as tender going into main camps.
Only 81 players selected. :x
Still a whole other draft planned for this summer after, presumably, pre-draft camps take place. Was a good day for Minnesotans though.

Re: USHL Futures Draft May 4th

Most MN goalies spend at least a season or two in the NAHL before going to USHL. Some skip USHL all together. There’s probably more, but Jared Moe is one exception to this I can think of.

I give it a 1 in 3 chance there is no hockey come October. No decision should be made on where to play early. I completely agree with this. I'm not sure how anything will happen until there's a vaccine. Relatedly, I don't think there will be any fall high school or college sports. There are other f...
