Re: State tourney ‘19...who you got?

I guess Edina and Hermantown would be the safer picks but I'm going with Andover and Greenway.

I have nothing against either of the first two but it would sure make for a better tournament if the Huskies and the Raiders were playing Saturday.

Gernander/Antonovich 66-69.
This was the first one that came to my mind.

No thanks. I enjoy the Section semi-finals and finals too much to see them go away. The passion to get to the tournament has created more great Section final games over the years than the actual State Tournament games in my opinion. I also really miss the Section finals at the Coliseum

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I agree, it is a pointless debate, particularly here. H-town will do what it thinks is in its self-interest. Nothing unique about that. However, the way other programs and fans react is entirely a different story. First, given how section seeding is handled now, I can't imagine why GR (or any other...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

The reason I made this comment is because I don't think our younger crowd realizes what the teams in the 50's and 60's and 70's and 80's had to deal with when only a few teams would end end up winning every year. It's really nothing new.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I understand the pain of watching a team like Hermantown rolling through A every year. St. Thomas did it before them. But is it much different than Eveleth killing everyone in the 50's and I Falls and Greenway in the 60's and Edina and Rapids in the 70's and Jefferson and Burnsville in the 80's and ...

Re: Grand Forks Central

does GFC ever play Moorehead? That would seem to be a big game. I kind of sense that the hockey in MN HS is down ever so slightly this year. There does not seem to be that one dominant team. Edina, Minnetonka and Andover all look really good but I get the sense that they can be beat. I think the st...

Re: Games Friday 1-25

Prior Lake 2, Duluth East 0, final. East generated practically nothing in the way of respectable offensive chances until they pulled the goalie with 3 and a half minutes left. One of the more uninspiring Hounds efforts in my recent memory. Completely disjointed offensively, taking lots of penalties...

Re: Dismal 2019 for Range Hockey

If they keep scheduling Hermantown for two games you can probably forget the #2 seed. QRF is not friendly to playing A teams, especially when you lose. Rapids has an advantage over Cloquet and Marshall because they don't have to schedule them for conference play. Might want to think about taking ad...

Re: Dismal 2019 for Range Hockey

The original post here begs the question, what were you expecting this season? This isn't the west metro where teams just reload. I thought Greenway would be much better than their record shows and they still have time to get better. Rapids is much improved over last year which was by far their wor...

Re: Hibbing 0-25?

Hang in there Raider. While I'm not a huge Greenway fan :) I am a fan of good hockey. This green team will be ready to go at the end of the year. Their schedule will prepare them for that. They certainly have enough talent for that. Not often you will get props from a fan to your west but this year ...

Re: Class A Rankings 12-30-18

It’s really interesting when you look at Greenway and Cloquet. Both preseason top 10 and both currently at 4-8. Would anybody be truest shocked if these 2 squads punched their tickets to the state tournament this year. -Not me 🤓 They could both do that for sure. If Greenway can get past Hermantown t...

Rapids was down early 2-0 to Forest Lake but then came back with 3 unanswered to make it 3-2 after 1. I only saw the last goal as the stream is very choppy tonight.
