Re: Zach Halverson

I'm really confused where anybody is talking about profits here. It looks to me like a very sick family that could use some help. That comment isn't about the Halversons AT ALL. I wish they didn't have to fundraise to cover expenses like health care. They shouldn't have to. I'm not going any furthe...

Re: MSHSL moves football to spring

If you want to have a season, don't argue like the guy above me. "It's just the flu!" is not going to convince the MSHSL of anything. Recognize the potential danger, be willing to accept whatever restrictions the MSHSL recommends, and suck it up. Announcing in advance that you're going to go on with...

Re: MSHSL moves football to spring

I'd like to see HS hockey this year postponed or not and with whatever restrictions the MSHSL and individual conferences require. I'll happily watch the online stream if that's my only option. A big difference between hockey and other sports are facilities. Rinks don't make money. Operating at near ...

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

Amazed that this is even a debate. Everybody keeps busting out cherry picked studies to prove DEFINITIVELY this or DEFINITIVELY that. It's pretty simple really. This thing spreads because one person can give it to more than one person. • Social distancing reduces that ratio • Hand washing reduces th...

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

N95 masks, ONLY WHEN RIGOROUSLY FITTED AND TESTED, stop approximately 95% of particles down to 0.300 microns. Anything smaller than 0.300 microns sails through an N95 mask, EVEN if it is rigorously custom-fitted. This is wrong. They stop 95% of 0.3 micron particles. They stop a higher percent large...

So what is the compromise its hybrid and let the district incorporate the hybrid.We will all be told its hybrid learning on the 27th that's a done deal.

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

I think a case could be made to continue activities as usual even if kids aren’t in the classroom. Think about it: No matter how you try to mitigate the spread in schools, the kids are still in the same building breathing the same air and touching the same doorknobs. If there’s an outbreak in a scho...

Good chance that both will leave their HS teams, but lots of kids tender with the NAHL and end up back in HS. I'll keep an eye on both of them, but I won't add them until we see how things shake out. § § I propose this symbol as the universal disclaimer about COVID throwing a wrench into all specula...

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

I think the season will happen. What I expect is that, with preventive measures in place, Minnesota will do a good job of mitigating the spread without a 100% shutdown. There will be waves of infections here and there, but if tests, PPE, and ICU rooms are readily available by the start of the school...

Re: Role of the Minnesota State High School League

Kids are so desperate to play MSHSL hockey that they’ll rent apartments and change legal guardianships and we see this as a bad thing? I hate that kids break the spirit of the rule if not the letter of it, but if the alternative is making transfers so restrictive that we start driving kids to AAA an...

Oliver Moore is cut from a different cloth IMHO. I would expect USAH to make a visit to Fridley in the near future.
If they want to find him at home, they’ll visit Mounds View. He was an Irondale Youth Hockey player.

Re: The 2019-2020 Freshman Scoring Thread

Watched the stream of EGF-SCC Jaksen Panzer (18 goals) he looked like he was the best player on EGF. He was definitely not outplayed by the SCC top line. He is going to be fun to watch! I was at the game. He was the best player, not only on EGF, but on the ice. Seen him play several times this year...

Re: Association not allowing privates on top teams

There is no doubt that is true. Those 10 sets of Parents want to see their kid's team win first and foremost. They care about what is best for their kid. They are generally not thinking about what is best for the Association or High School Program. That is why Parent's don't make those types of dec...

Re: Association not allowing privates on top teams

The association and schools loss is the ice time that is given to these players at the expense of others watching from the bench that will eventually end up in your high school system.
