Group Therapy

Hi All, The snowfall and colder weather have brought with them the reality that this hockey season is going to be a lot different. I've always known it intellectually, but now I FEEL it. I thought this thread could be a place for us to support each other and talk about what we're going to miss this ...

Re: Summer Scrimnages

A previous poster mentioned their curiosity about Miller and Ratzlaff. I'm curious too, have either of them been on the ice so far? Any other notable absences/presences?

Re: Summer Scrimnages

If anyone has a schedule for this, I would appreciate seeing it. I also have to plead ignorance: Will fans be allowed to attend? https://cdn2.sportngin.com/attachments/document/a8c0-2205545/Tournament_8.5x14_Schedules_2020.pdf#_ga=2.256647307.108108966.1594313322-253034803.1590511247 Thank you!

Anyone have clout with the MSHSL or Channel 45?

With all the old games on right now, can we get some old high school games on Channel 45? There are so many great games people would love to see. I'm sure they would get an audience if they promoted them well. Not just hockey but basketball and football as well. Is there a reason this can't happen?

Re: Turning Points

I think in a perfect world, seedings for sections and state would be based on computer rankings like PageStat that put more weight on recent results. I didn't realize PageStat did. Will read the methodology again. Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought I remembered reading that at some point. edit: "Q: Lat...

ESPG: I hear what you are saying, but still trying to understand what parameters would be used to seed. - Pre-season expectations - Games in January & February - etc. Would there have been a difference in seeding for 4AA this year?

Re: Turning Points

Moving away from the Hounds (but sticking with some Elk River misery), the 2017 7AA semifinal between Grand Rapids and Elk River is another obvious one. The Thunderhawks had been absolutely sleepwalking down the stretch; I remember attending their loss to Cloquet that relegated them to the 4-seed, ...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

I’m with Doc and think Girard probably get the nod for me over Benjamin. I also think Benny Walker might deserve a spot on the list over Jordahl. Probably doesn’t have the points Jordahl did, but he didn’t benefit from playing with Hurley and Malmquist. For what it's worth, Girard and Benjamin are ...

Re: 2010 Tourney in Retrospect

Great job, as always Karl.

This inspired me to create my Turning Points thread - with the 2010 game at Braemar between Minnetonka and Edina acting as the catalyst for the Hornets' 2010 championship run.

Re: Turning Points

January 11th, 2014 Edina (12-3) at Hill-Murray (10-2). The Hornets had won a matchup between these two teams just two weeks earlier in the Schwan Cup Finals. The way this game looked, that may as well have been ancient history. The Pioneers skated circles around the Hornets, who looked slow, disint...

Turning Points

These could be turning points in a single season, turning points for a program as a whole, or events that caused the entire state landscape to change. I'll start with a couple season-turning points for my Edina Hornets. Apologies in advance, blueblood :) . February 11th, 2010 Minnetonka at Edina. Th...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

Andrew Rohkohl was a bit underrated in net at Edina , filled in when Benjamin was hurt in 2012-13, then was in net all season for Edina’s 2013-14 championship season . Above 90% his whole career I think . Played some at Univ of St T https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/316503/andrew-rohkohl Good c...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

What would be fun is to pick all decade teams from several of the AA and A teams and have a simulated playoff. anybody have the skill to pull that off? Any way, let's build all decade teams from these teams and see how they look :) I was thinking the same thing. I would be willing to create the tou...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

Good list. Only change I think I'd make is having Connor Girard over Willie Benjamin. That's totally just a nitpick though. Interesting thing about Edina is when is the last time they've produced a goalie? Matt Bertram? Steve Carroll? Larry Thayer? We're going back 40-50 years at this point. That d...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

Good list. Thanks for doing that. Only person I could see being added is Dornbach. GB He was definitely up for consideration. Looking back at his high school statistics, his point totals were lower than I remembered. I know it's not all about points. Casey was a leader and played a 200-foot game. H...
