Re: 7AA 2019-2020

As of a today Galatz is off the "Northern" HSEL roster and I didn't see him on any other roster... Not sure what that means. (Juniors?)

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

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...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

Between the HSEL and Tier 1, it looks like most of Rapids roster :) . Good for that program, it's good to see.

If it were true he would have skated with Denfeld
He did play with Marshall... to get some ice before the USHL.

Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

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...

When do we get to hear all of the seedy details of how STA's coaching position came to be filled?
There is one rumor that an administrator left over the coaching hire. The coaching hire had nothing to do with his departure.

I don't believe Jeffy has ever stated which program that he's from but I'm thinking it's East (?). East has hardly "begged" kids to come but they do have kids come in. The diff...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

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 ...

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

The Gopher Bar reported that Greenway fans broke the record of beer consumption by drinking 45 cases of beer on Wednesday. I’m guessing a new record might be made today. Lol. I heard that and also heard a lot of "see you at the Gopher". Curious, it's a bit off the beaten path, is there a Greenway c...

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

How was this crowd so pro- Greenway? I'd guess that under most opponents, Mahtomedi are the darlings, finally cruising to their first title, as it would be. Sure they're Metro, but they are the prototypical small school the two class format was made for. Has Mahtomedi born the brunt of the crowd li...

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

I think Greenway has the better top 10. They kept their legs in the first game so hopefully they can do it again. With Moorhead and East out, a Greenway/EGF final would salvage the tourney for me.

Re: Biondi gone?

He's one hell of a player. Hard to argue against him being the best junior in the state. Like many he had this year, his goal against Greenway was sick. If the offer is still there, it would be hard to turn down the NTDP considering the pedigree of the program. Probably depends on if he'd be willing...

East, they are always good and always get favored by the stripes up here in the north. It is just the way it is from peewees up through high school. Probably the biggest reason I dislike that program. There was a questionable "late call" against East that tied the game, it goes both ways. I'm sure ...
