Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

Glockner 51st NAHL draft to Amarillo Howe 61st to Jamestown Heard Boynton was selected for ASG at Fargo camp. Any word on if he was selected for roster spot? Glockner selected for ASG at Sioux Falls camp. Not related to the goalie forum but Henkemeyer-Howe absolutely lighting up the lamp at SF camp.

Re: 6AA Final — Edina v BSM

I'm going Edina 6-2 and all the way to finals with a likely repeat over Blaine. The only thing that may hurt the Hornets is inexperienced goaltending. Hogg showed excellent control in both Tonka games, which were arguably the biggest games on the Hornets regular season schedule. If he plays like he ...

Re: Mr. Hockey and Frank Brimsek Award Finalists

Did Glockner steal any games for Minnetonka this year? The team was really solid so I doubt he had to, but I do remember the 3-1 win for Boynton over East where he had some 50 saves. Although competition was inferior for CP in a majority of the games, I think Boynton maintained a plus .900 SP again...

Re: 2AA Final - Eden Prairie vs. Holy Family

I think EP is going to roll right through HF. It won't even be close. Difference between EP and Tonka offense is EP actually has guys who can put it in the back of the net. I wish the Fire luck but just don't see it happening. Especially on the larger sheet of ice.

Some thoughts on goaltending in the context of the Brimsek awards, and whether it's better to be a good goalie on a strong team that plays a tough schedule or one who has to be the star of the team on a team with a weak one: https://apatientcycle.com/2019/02/23/goalie-greatness/ Interesting piece. ...

Re: AA Rankings for 2/17/19 and Section Preview

I hate to say it but if any team at the top looks vulnerable it is Tonka unless they find their full mojo again. 5-2-2 since beating WBL and while that record isn't awful it's a far cry from their first 15 or so games. Additionally (without looking at the stats to confirm) it seems like their speci...

Re: Games Saturday 2/9/19

The packed house at Braemar got its money's worth tonight. Both teams are rock-solid defensively, so it took just one little let-up from Tonka for Edina's third line to slip in that go-ahead tally. Edina's forwards did a better job of carrying play than Tonka's...so much of the Skippers' offense ru...

Pipes, agree with most your thoughts, although Tonka offense not quite as bad as your comment, But definitely, top Tonka strengths are Glockner, First D, and balanced forward lines, in that order Glad to see Bullis perform well in goal in a pressure environment. And EP sophomores have really progre...

Three takeaways from this Podcast. 1). Agree with 59s comments above. Hornets will not have three nominees. It's BBs to lose. 2.) Brimsek finalists. Terrible reasoning to not give Glockner credit for his numbers this year and talk up Tonka D and compare that to Boynton. Two completely different scen...

Re: Games Saturday 2-2-19

Tonka wins 3-2 in OT over EP. 3rd period was ALL EP. Glockner made 2 unbelievable saves late in the third, one backdoor pad save another 2-0 breakaway. IMO Tonka not clicking offensively. Scoring chances equivalent to a Bantam B2 team. Majority of EP shots are one-timers and in the slot. First few m...

Spuds up 3-0 on the Hounds after two and doubling them up in shots. Looking like a long bus ride home to Duluth, both literally and figuratively. Wow. Thanks for update.

Does anyone know if Andover and Minnetonka have to play both goalies during the game? If so, advantage Huskies!

As we’re nearly halfway through the second half of the 2018-2019 season, I thought I’d share my thoughts on the top 5 goaltenders in the state.

Agree. Curious as to why so many top teams didn't partake in Gold Division. Last year's games and crowds for the Gold Division were pretty solid and similar to past years. Anyone know the reasoning for only 4 teams?

Re: AA Rankings for 12/30/18

Agree on the difficulty with the rankings and could very well be a complete toss-up for most of the top 10 teams. I'd disagree with MG at #4 though. Only loss is to #1 skips and even though they only had 15 SOG vs. Tonka, the quality of the scoring chances were solid. Few big saves by Glockner inclu...
