Re: Will Curt Giles ever get his due?

Personality/intangibles Giles: I think being as reserved as he is keeps him from sometimes getting as much attention as he could. He could probably have a more iconic status if Edina played on Hockey Day every time they were invited or if he gave long interviews at every opportunity. I suspect Curt...

Re: 16 Subsection Model

Overall, it’s a nice model that needs some tweaking ‘g biggest issue is making all but on Metro team go up to Duluth to play. I do not get why that should be the case. Just move it to Mariucci.

Re: AA title: Edina vs EP

I do agree that folks these days love hyperbole, but it shouldn't take anything away from the kids effort as both sides played with all they had. I feel like "classic" is entirely subjective. Any state title game for your hometown team ought to be a classic regardless of the score. The Edina/LVN ti...

What was the inappropriate comment made on channel 45?
That's what I was wondering. Did Lou have a slip of the tongue?
I didn’t hear it, but someone on twitter said after Blaine’s fourth goal Mcloed said something
He said that Blaine was going to get out the “lynching rope”.

Re: AA QF: Moorhead vs. #1 Edina

10 year anniversary of the 5-2 upset. Interesting reading all the notes & recollections from people on the Moorhead side. Not surprising that there isn't much said from the Edina side. That last part is accurate. Being an Edina grad, that game stings. It was the first year I had followed the team (...

7. Edina 2013 -Basically the 2014 team one year younger. Had a couple somewhat closer calls and more regular season losses than many others, but still pretty convincing in their march to the title. I am going to respectfully disagree here, Karl. I am okay with where this team is ranked, but I do no...

Can't argue this too much, but I could also see STA getting the nod at 3 over DE but it is truly a coin flip in my eyes.

Edina has kinks, but this loss was just what they needed. Humility and re-invigorated to enter sections/state in hungry and ticked off mindset. Now just no more more 'Dumb & Dumber' activities off-ice and they'll hopefully meet Tonka for Game #4 at state at some point...maybe DE. But I dare to drea...

Re: HAPPY'S RANKINGS 2/11

Interested in your reasoning to keeping Edina at 1. Not opposed to it by any means, I mean look at my username, but both losses are to Tonka and they looked off in both occasions.

Re: Vorlicky

Hopefully! I would love to see a Round 4 of this rivalry this year. As much as I want to avoid it too haha. Tonka is scary good with defensemen who move the puck well and big forwards. They both have to navigate sections though which is tricky in 2AA and 6AA.

Word is mild concussion. Shouldn't be anything too serious thankfully and he should be back sometime this week. His absence was definitely felt.

Correction: I believe both Crosby and Koumontzis started the first game despite being down with the flu and were pretty ineffective. But either way I'd like to see these two teams at their full strength best in March. Komountzis was out due to a one-game academic probation. Agreed that this rubber-...

Three passes in the zone, and only after that shoot on your back hand. I think that would be more humiliating than loosing 20-0. Sounds like Edina did the best they could in a bad situation. Yup.

I don’t think there’s been anything to capitalize on it. It takes a lot of talk and a lot of marketing efforts to really make it happen. Basketball would probably get the bump before, hell look at the Wolves with the bump they saw in notable figures over the Wild last night. However, there have been...

Re: Games Thursday 2-1-18

Edina vs Wayzata

One to keep an eye from the standpoint of how the Wayzata-Tonka game ended last week with kids leaving the ice, a ref being injured, and punches being thrown. Yes, punches were thrown even if it just led to game misconducts.

Could get chippy early.
