Re: North Star Academy-Alexandria

While I hear what you guys are saying......as both a Minnesota High School hockey fan first, and a hockey fan overall.....I don’t need to see any more growth in the Tier One model than we already have. If you wonder where I’m coming from.....see Massachusetts . Don’t confuse a short term open spot ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

So GR playing against Hermantown is a waste of time? I think kniven was trying to say that playing a top Class A team like Hermantown is a no-win situation for 7AA teams. QRF treats Class A teams as “lesser” regardless of how good they are. So a win isn’t particularly helpful in improving QRF, and ...

Wow one for the ages in Roseau. Only thing that would have made it better was if my boy DJ was there to tell me how great the EP/Edina rivalry is.

Andover - 4.75 GPG **
CEC - 3.57 GPG
Rapids - 3.09 GPG
F-Lake - 3.00 GPG
East - 2.92 GPG
Elks - 2.29 GPG

With exception to Andover, the section light on the scoring for HS puck.

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I happen to be very aware of the enormous pressure associated with HS age kids playing in a Section Final. My oldest son played in two, once as the underdog & once as the favorite & my youngest son played in one in essentially a pick um game where we were seeded 3rd vs the 4th seed. Youngest son ad...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Also hurting any Andover/Elk River narrative is the fact that Andover is pretty much locked in as the top seed and Elk River is likely to be the 6. They'd have no chance of meeting until the section final, which would require 2 ER upsets just to get there. Question for the room: is this the weakest...

Re: 2010s All-Decade Team and Awards

Exceptional work Karl!!

Not to slight big Al Adams but wouldn't the 2017 line of MacGlauphlin-Hain-Miller have garnered more state wide interest?
If I recall correct they seemed to have received more state wide appeal. What does the hive think?

Re: AA Rankings for 12/29/19

Lots of big names don’t translate to wins . Right now EP has one win against a top 10 team and that’s Edina which is...

Being #1 is a bit tongue in cheek...... They are relevant again which is good and in my humble opinion they should be left in 1AA as they are demographically and geographically more related to the other outstate 1AA teams than Lakeville nowadays. New Prague should be there too, these are among the ...

Re: Friday Grand Rapids vs Eden Prairie

Interesting. Does Grand Rapids provide line charts with pronunciation for the media? Standard practice for NCAA Div I and the US National Teams, but not many high schools do. Moorhead, but who else?

Interested in this freshman Jayson Shaugabay. Is he bound for greatness? Was he noticeable in the game? He’s got some pretty healthy stats for a freshman.
He will be wearing the Sioux colors in his future.

Re: Thursday Grand Rapids versus Edina

Glad you enjoyed the game. In order to have an entertaining game 2 teams need to show up and one did. Majority of Rapids - Edina games dating back to the 70's have been good match ups.
