Re: Ryder Donovan to Wisconsin

I am not saying to disregard these statements, as I agree 100% Juniors then college, and only commit during your senior year or even when you are in Juniors. But look at CM. He never played Juniors, and only 1 year at the U before he went to Buffalo. Now, look at how he is doing. Every kid with hig...

He was referring to the outdoor rink in ER where they played HDM😉 But Andover needs the experience of playing at Amsoil Saturday...since DE has most likely been practicing on that ice sheet...the past two weeks 😉🤣 Doesn't look like they've practice there at all yet. But they're scheduled there toda...

Re: 1AA

My hunch is Century is still a year away, I think they only graduate 3 kids who see a significant amount of ice time. Getting passed Owatonna is not a given by any means.....should they then will likely get North who has played some of the toughest teams in the state while Century hasn’t played any...

I am also sure you could probably get Moorhead and Roseau to also play home and home just play greenway for single A teams once a year like e...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

Exactly, advantage to the metro schools, East minimizes A schools the best it can. The best it can? Denfeld has been the only Class A competition on East’s schedule the past few years. They have the resources and name brand to schedule pretty much any AA program they want. Yes, they spend plenty of...

Doesn't help your QRF playing single A teams.
Sad but true you are better off playing low to middle of pack AA teams as opposed to top A teams. QRF be like that #-o

Ol' DJ is on it with the rapidly declining bunch they are on 3 game win streak. For that team to make a semi final Saturday would be huge accomplishment to team and coaches. Tall order indeed playing CEC on their home ice but at this stage it's a possibility. Cannot rule out CEC despite the injuries...

Re: Seldom noticed and under rated

I really like the two senior D men Jake Klein and Spencer Millard for White Bear. The forward group probably gets more attention but those two are both really solid and fly under the radar, they just don't put up big numbers. Klein is more of a do everything, every situation type of guy while Milla...

So awesome. Seems like a lot of older guys committing to top tier programs. For all the hype around the early commits at age 14-15, there's still a place for the standouts at 19-20.

Re: Monday, 2/4 Duluth East at Cloquet

I hear that the 2019 version of Andover is no 'Randover' of teams past. Time will tell if they can "rundover" over the Hounds in section 7AA playoffs. It sure will be a good game, though. I will lean towards East getting the revenge win when it matters the most. They are tough out on their home ice...

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...
