Re: Worst AA/A sections 1-8, 2019

I don't proclaim to be the smartest person in the world but I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to see the way it's going after the section realignments this year i.e. Anoka to Section 7AA, Tartan to Single A, etc... Just seems to me that the league wants to go to 3 classes or do the Top 32 t...

Re: 2019-2020 Coaching Changes List

I assume this is the Jake Taylor who has been an assistant there. From the outside this is a good hire, he has been pretty involved in the coaching for a few years. Has the potential to be a decent coach once JE's kids are gone from the program. Until then, as an employee of one of the many Enebak ...

Plenty of drama so stay tuned for the ugly details as they come out over the next few weeks. AD quit over the deal (ordeal). Actual top candidate turned it down. Not sure TE was even in the initial interview process. What a mess.
Bob Slater quit over a hockey coach search?

I've heard that Mike Guentzel will be the new coach of the STA hockey team.
Update on this as the whispers I heard were incorrect - Lakeville North's Trent Eigner will take the trip up 35 to Mendota Heights.

Re: 16 Subsection Model

I'd really love a "Sweet Sixteen" format for the state tournament. Wouldn't mind a David and Goliath set up for the round of 16 games either - match the teams up and then the lower enrollment gets to pick the ice sheet to play on (not their home rink). Imagine the intrigue of the Hornets going up to...

Re: St. Thomas Academy vs Edina

Nasty game with some raw emotions - Edina was the better team all year and proved it tonight.

Good season for the boys from STAA - fought hard until the end and will have the chance for some hardware tomorrow, just not the kind they were hoping for.

Re: AA state tourney seeding

For those of you who have seen STA play, are they playing any better in their own end? They sure have been exposed at State for this weakness. I think they're much improved from the beginning of the season - they haven't conceded more than once in a game since late January. Managed to beat Mahtomed...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

I liked the idea of ranking the top 5 but it looks like a mess now. No way EP should have the 3. They have 9 losses. STA has 4. I root against private schools but this just makes no sense. Same with East getting the 5. WBL got screwed too. Just looking at EP sitting there at number three with 9 los...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

EP as a three seed is laughable and WBL got hosed.

Stack all the northern/private schools on the side of the bracket with the Hornets and all the big metro suburban schools on the other half?

This whole thing stinks.

Re: AA state tourney seeding

WBL, if they make it, could get seed over EP and Moorhead. Currently ranked higher. Tough call, though, on who is odd man out of those three. Duluth East beat WBL but had some questionable losses so likely won’t be seeded. But DE will be tough opening round opponent for whoever draws them. Love me ...

It may seem counterintuitive, but perhaps Greenway's triumph will be the catalyst for a Hermantown opt-up, instead of evidence that the Hawks really should stay in A. I know Hermantonians were stunned after the loss to Alex last year, but the Greenway loss is next-level disbelief. Many of their fan...

Re: Section 3AA Final: (3)Eagan vs (1) St. Thomas Academy

I was more concerned with Rosemount than Eagan, but it's a section final so nothing can be taken for granted.

If the Cadets skate fast and strong they can pull out a good win - superior talent only loses when they don't work as hard.
