Re: Class A Preseason Rankings

What's Breck's motivation to move up to AA? To have the MSHSL place them in a section with Blake, B-SM, Edina and Wayzata? I suspect if they did away with sections and had a seeded bracket, Breck would be a lot more inclined to play in the AA tournament.

Re: Women coaches

Wow, talk about gender stereotyping. Isn't that the type of thing we're trying to avoid? Inclusion fits for some things I guess.

Re: Elite league

Is this league truly "elite" if many of the players are no shows ? Does the boys' elite league have this issue? I doubt it. For those of you in the know, what's the difference.

Re: Competitive Section Assignments

Or, they could just seed everyone and be done with all this mess. I think we're all understanding why allowing the section assignments to be run out of a board room in Brooklyn Center isn't the best idea.

Re: State of Hockey's Team

goldy313, perhaps you think Minnesota is not only irreverent but also even IRRELEVANT. With respect to Lucia, he won the two NCAA titles in his third and fourth seasons as coach (2002 and 2003), so he clearly had a lot of "his own guys" by then, particularly, players like Potulny and Vanek (who had ...

Re: Competitive Section Assignments

It looks like the difference is primarily due to opt ups in boys and co-ops on the girls'side. Chaska/Chan, Hopkins/Park and Champlin Park/CR are girls' co-ops that all field AA programs on the boys' side. Additionally, STA, C-E-C, Marshall, Holy Angels and now TG play boys' AA hockey but not girls....

Anything but Minnesota's best. If you look at the box scores you'll see that Dynamo Black played with SIX skaters. Not sure how you get away with that in this day and age.

Re: New State Tournament Format (or my day dream)

Good point, it is also hard to arrange it geographically when 62 of next year's 70 AA hockey teams are within 80 miles of Xcel Arena and probably 57 are within 40 miles. As I said yesterday, the question is what to do with the 8 teams from the north?

Re: New State Tournament Format (or my day dream)

Hey, what do you think of the NCAA Men's D1 hockey brackets? Pretty cool that three Minnesota universities are number 1 seeds in their regions. Maybe some folks in New England are pissed off because they feel that these teams should all be in a western bracket, just like it always has been. The same...

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

Football teams don't sandbag in Texas because they are required to play in their size class. Interesting thought, if Minnesota did that your Class A field might include teams like Grand Rapids, STA, Benilde, Cloquet, Hermantown, Hill-Murray, Holy Family, Roseau, etc. Would eliminate the quality of p...

Re: A and AA Enrollment Information

The numbers are pretty interesting. Based on enrollment numbers from 2017-18, if you exclude the Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools and the teams that are co-op (Osseo/Park Center and Armstrong/Cooper) then the enrollment number drops to 1,136 for the largest 64 schools.

Re: 16 Subsection Model

Elliott, you say we "need representation by geographic region". We don't really have that now. The plan you recommend arbitrarily adds 7 teams from Class A to AA while displacing 8 teams from sections 7AA and 8AA. Where are those 8 teams going to go? Do you think all 7 of those current Class A teams...

Re: 16 Subsection Model

I agree with you, StanleyCup55. Particularly for AA, the sections have long ago outlived their usefulness. The sections were borne out of basketball districts in the 1940's and 1950's when every little town had a basketball team and they were needed then to manage the numbers. That is clearly not th...
