Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Raising taxes to fund high school sports when our communities and local businesses are experiencing shutdowns with 20+% unemployment is likely not realistic. I think it all depends on the community, of course. And that’s the beauty of a referendum, the property owners decide. You’re talking about a...

Darkhorse teams for 2020-2021

Lots of threads here about the top programs and tons of discussion of their players. I am curious about teams that might be considered darkhorses that could somehow either make a miracle run to state or maybe a deep section run. I am not thinking a team like LVN, CDH or Prior Lake, thinking more alo...

Re: USHL Futures Draft May 4th

Not a single MN netminder drafted and the 04's are a pretty good group....Manz, Dardis, Erickson and Wallin. What's up with that? Phase II maybe? Not too surprising to me. Last year was more of an outlier with 2 MN goalies getting picked and both pretty high. Just my opinion but I think the 03 goal...

Re: Association not allowing privates on top teams

The real question maybe this. Lets say a kid goes to Hill Murray as a 9th grader but still wants to play Bantams with his "buddies" at Stillwater....should he be excluded from the top Stillwater Bantam team just because they know the following year he won't be playing for Stillwater? Then in that c...

Re: AA Goalie Leaders Thru Feb 1

I would love to see these separated by A and AA. Then I would love to see PageStat run each of the top 10 through a SOS calculation. I'm of the opinion that some goalies have strong stats because of the quality of the teams (and shots) they face. It will take some effort because each goalie needs t...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

I have no dog in this fight and have stated I'm okay with him going back... But from a learning the rules standpoint, how is it he's allowed to go back and play if I quote the newspaper article "he will stay with friends and family during the season" Is it as simple as getting both AD's to agree?

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

I wonder if the Steeve's kid is a Holy Family recruit or is he playing at Eden Prairie. Unless his name was missed on the Elite League tryout list last week, he was given a guaranteed spot in the Elite League. Correct, Steeve's appears to have been an auto-invite as was the goalie move-in Shantz pl...

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

I wanted to move this post forward and see who are considered to be the top returning goaltenders for the upcoming season. Evaluating goalies is definitely not my forte, so I’ll start by listing the top ten returning starters by save percentage. I realize it’s an imperfect metric, but it is better ...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

No games matter until sections? Ask Roseasu vs. Warroad, Tonka vs. Edina, Ep vs. Edina; etc. if those regular season games don't matter [-X They really don’t...? You can go 0-25 and still make sections - and you restart sections with a 0-0 record!! Ask Edin Ask Pat O’Leary and Wayzata after their 7...
