Re: Jackson Blake

I hope the MSHSL goes back to a "play where you live" model. So if a kid open enrolls to another HS they can't play Varsity sports? Minnesota was at the forefront of open enrollment so I don't see that even being legal. Nope, just still "play where you live". If you want to open-enroll at George Ba...

Re: Jackson Blake

Looking at this from a distant view, I do have sympathy for a kid who plays at an association all the way up in youth but was convinced to go to "greener pastures" for a year or part of a year but decides to come back. Looking at it honestly, the probable reason this thread has hit 5 pages is becaus...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

And Pekyman, I used to root for HT at state (even when they played a team from another area where I knew a bunch of the players parents) because they're a northern team (all area type northern "A" HS playoff team now).

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Hermantown beat East about 15 years ago, East pulled out of the LSC and has not played HT sense. Nobody at that time would have demanded that HT should play AA Hockey. I understand EAST pulling out of the LSC, but not playing Hermantown again because HT beat them is BS. It is actually ridiculous th...

Re: Single A Top Twenty 12-8-2019

MY Rankings do not rank until a team has 5 games played. Where's 5-0-0 St. Paul Johnson? Shutting out the #6 team in their home barn isn't enough to get them in the top 20 ahead of sub .500 teams? I'm rooting for SP Johnson this year and will be on their bandwagon (unless they hopefully play Denfel...

Denfeld 4-1 over Greenway. SOG favored Greenway 33-21. The McClure bros. figured in 3 out of the 4 goals for Denfeld.
Greenway has a lot of work to do for now.
Doesn't matter but shots were other way around.

Re: Future of Duluth Marshall

Hermantown just outshot Duluth Marshall 48-4, winning 10-0. And no JV for Marshall. I’d say that program is officially dead. And they play AA???????? Hibbing is officially dead as well. Proctor and Denfeld are in great shape long term. Not dead forever, just dead in their current form. Something dr...

Re: Canadian Teams

Like anything, it depends (area/city, association, # kids, etc). Winnepeg and Thunder Bay have very strong top end teams. Canada classifies everything with "A" so the are no B or C teams. Most times when Canadian teams come down to tourneys in MN, from what I've seen, they're overly fair in where th...

Re: Greenway welcomes Deer River to hockey

I was mainly wondering why Greenway, since they have to drive through Grand Rapids to get to there. The Vikings and Timberwolves will win a title in the same season before a Rapids-Greenway merger. Yeah my bad, sorry, I read your post wrong. Greenway makes more sense for Deer River as far as number...

So is there a reason they are combining with Greenway instead of Grand Rapids?
Raider could verify and I could be wrong but I think the day you see Greenway combine with GR for boys is the same day you'll see snow in Hades.

Where did he play last year? Eden Prairie Bantam from January on. If he "moved" (change of address), you are allowed one for your HS "career". My question is: how was he allowed to play on the bantam team if he came back in January? MN hockey states that you are required to be rostered by 12/31 (NO...

The great plains coach is from EGF, thus he cannot coach his own kids, they have to play on the north team, he and clafton have a wink wink to take as many of each others kids as possible. Thats the benefit of being the coach. If organizations want their kids on tge team the coaches need to get inv...

He’ll now disappear into the large pool of junior hockey and just be another player trying to make it. Unless he plays with Hermantown, Denfeld, or Duluth Marshall this year and next 🤔 He will be just fine (but he is not coming back). He's big, strong, hard worker and more importantly: has great ch...

There is one rumor that an administrator left over the coaching hire. The coaching hire had nothing to do with his departure.

Apparently HT is going after a goalie from Cloquet and a leading scorer from Virginia. Hearing that the Virginia "homegrown" transplant bought a house in HT to be eligible for next year.

Re: Class A 2019-2020

Agreed, I'd pump the brakes on Denfeld a bit. As good as their bantam team was this year, they only beat Hibbing 3-2 and 3-1, and Virginia 3-0, so it's not like they were light years ahead of other 7A teams. Plus, their Pee Wee team was 2-23, so it doesn't appear there will be a solid sophomore cro...

Re: Class A 2019-2020

Denfeld losing a ton. They will have 2 forwards and goalies. Period. The 2 forwards returning were Denfelds leading scorers. Denfeld loses #3 & #4 leading scorers but gain at least 4 forwards coming up that can play and score. The forwards coming up are more complete that play far better both ways ...
