Re: New State Tournament Format (or my day dream)

All these ideas seem like a great way to ruin the best HS tournament in the country!

Re: White Bear Lake, Moorhead, South Saint Paul

Is this NTDP WBL kid have a chance at playing for WBL HS?
Roed, Hofeld, Rose, Newpower should be a solid core. Really would be a state champ contender if Berg went the HS route.

Re: White Bear Lake, Moorhead, South Saint Paul

2001, 2003 and 2005 WBL all had great teams.

In 2005, they probably had the best team in the tournament. fell to DE in an upset.

For the WBL posters out there, is next year the last real chance WBL has to make the tournament for a while?

Re: AA QF: White Bear Lake vs. #2 Blaine

After watching both Blaine/MG section final and WBL/HM, I think this game will be closer than most believe. I think Maple Grove was the better team on Thursday night, and had more scoring chances but could not finish. Blaine was very opportunistic and buried when they had a chance. The WBL/HM game w...

Re: Various top 10's as of 1-17 or most recent

Not sure WBL has 6 good D. 11 good on back end, but they've been vulnerable. Gallatin loss didnt help. Goaltending has been good..scoring could be an issue come sections. 9 10 5 all can score. WBL needs the SR line of 26 and 29 to start adding more

Too bad he isnt staying his senior year, followed by a year of Jr's.
It would give time to build his smaller frame up a bit......and break WBL's state tourney curse.

Vinny Litierri was a kid who should have done the same. Wasted a year as a Gopher

I agree here with Hawk. There are right and wrong ways to do things. I know its probably hard for him to believe, but there is more than 1 person on the hockey TEAM. Clearly the team aspect means nothing. This isn't tennis or golf. It's a team game. It wouldnt have been too hard to put off the recru...

The place was still pretty darn full for a high school hockey sectional. At the end of the edina-burnsville game, majority of the seats were full. Maybe instead of commenting on how small the crowd is while you are watching the online stream.....come out to the games once in a while. Maybe too busy ...

I would say it is still "special" just not on the same level it was 20 or 30 years ago in the single class system.

I also think the top end kids leaving early really hurts the overall product.

Sometimes I wonder why some of you folks aren't on the WHL forum.

The place was fairly packed at the end of the Edina-Blaze game.

Solid atomosphere for most of the night.

Did Benilde tell all of their students to look at stupid as possible, and come to the game?

Good luck to Wahlin with whatever he does. I would like to see him bring The Bears to the Xcel over the next two years, but I dont see anyone on his own team being able to push him, and make him a better player. So it may be his best route. Good luck, and you were great to watch. Beat Hill and join ...

Roseville deserved to win tonight but was denied by gorman. Well done in goal. Bears were downright bad for majority of the game. Transition defense, or lack there of will catch up with them against the mighty catholics. Wbl was outplayed, outcoached, outmuscled and found a way to survive. Good luck...
