Re: 7AA 2019-2020

A desperate move by a desperate team that’s panicking before the season starts. No way Antover gets out of 7AA. AGAIN, this year. 🤓👍👀 :lol: I think it's their year, just too much talent to overcome. That maybe. But getting through the section playoffs is more about the right team and not the better...

If you aren’t going to be in the top 6 forwards or top 4 D, stay in bantams.
If your not going to be a Varsity top 6 forward or top 4 D (as a 9th grader) you should stay in Bantams. That’s pretty much the universal standard ☝️

Re: MN NAHL teams

No Jeanette from Duluth East in the list. Anybody know where he’s skating this winter? Pretty sure he was healthy scratched. USHL teams are not in the habit of cutting juniors in high school who made the start of season roster. He could also have some type of minor injury that kept him out of the l...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Do we know how many times since #7 was added has the High School league still said NO (even after both AD's signed off on it)? To me, once they added in #7 the flood gates are now wide open....A good number of AD's could care less about hockey and will sign a piece of paper for any family wanting t...

I have no dog in this fight and have stated I'm okay with him going back...

Re: Maple Grove departures

To me, losing a couple kids to USHL teams (like DE did this year, which BTW, doesn’t happen very often to them) is one thing & losing 4 players to NTDP (over 4 years) including 2 brothers...is another. Kids from your youth program getting NTDP tryouts and/or invites is a BIG feather in your cap (for...

Re: Will Curt Giles ever get his due?

He has a great record as HC for Edina. Tom Saterdalen and Willard Ikola are considered legends. Like Giles, they led prominent programs to several state titles with great players. Giles should be viewed in the same light. Lee Smith as well. So much fawning about Mike Randolph. Why not Giles? He's c...

Re: Maple Grove departures

What is Maple Grove’s issue? They consistently lose elite players to the NTDP, USHL, NAHL, and now with Brandon Reller signing with the Spokane Chiefs the WHL as well. A big time program like that should be having players wanting to come in instead of leaving for greener pastures. Is there somethin...

Thanks for the info Westy.
