Re: No Montage Video

This was a bummer. Always one of the best parts of the tournament since they started doing it.

Re: AA state tourney seeding

I will no doubt get ripped for saying this, but the seedings were still off going in. Hindsight is always 20/20, but like everyone was saying before the tournament started, EP ended up with an easy draw in which they were very close to playing in Mariucchi on Friday after they could have very well ...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

Well the world looks different in hindsight, does it not? But first, the seeding conspiracy theory. For many seasons the conspiracy was that MSHSL secretly seeding the tourney 1 - 8. Remember that? I never got that one. There is no reason to conspire unless there is a benefit to conspirators. And t...

Re: Cathedral vs Greenway

Rules experts : Is there no time limit on the amount of time until the next whistle before reviewing a disallowed goal to see if the disallowance would hold up or not? Raiders fortunate After that loss of momentum to regain momentum, tie the game, and start on a power-play. Such a weird situation. ...

Re: AA title: Edina vs EP

Instant classic....So sorry I couldn't make it this year. The “classic” statement needs to not be thrown around every time a game goes to overtime. Let’s be realistic here, it was quite dull for a majority of the game with Eden Prairie dominating and really should have been up more than 1 to 0 goin...

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

I know this is a little late, but I have been attending many of these games and have been enjoying the atmosphere at many of the fine establishments when not at the X which has kept me busy from checking out this site. I was in attendance yesterday and have a story that just needs to be told. Take f...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

Wow EP was a 3 seed in section 2AA and then a 3 seed at state. When’s the last time something like that happened? Two seasons ago, Grand Rapids was a 4 seed in the sections and then got a 5 seed at state. And went on to win it all of course. The big difference though is if I recall correctly (which...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

Let me preface this by saying I am not arguing a case for anyone and I know sections seeding isn't always the best gauge, but as a spectator of this topic that doesn't have the knowledge about it as a lot of you, it is crazy to me that many are arguing EP to be ranked. Sure, up until Hockey Day, Min...

Re: 2019 STATE TOURNAMENT

By no means do I have any sort of heavy expertise in girls high school hockey being I only watch and follow it come tournament time, but just a few thoughts from a casual fan. First, I can't agree more about the comments regarding this Olivia King. Quite honestly, I don't know who is exactly up for ...

What's the problem here? He made a mistake and I guarantee he regrets missing out on all of this. No matter what, you can't take away the fact that he helped the team get to state. You think coming on the ice for this made the kid feel like he got away with something? My guess is the punishment of n...

It's like some think that Stillwater didn't belong. They were no doubt a top eight team, deserved to be at state, and very well should have been the one seed. Who knows how things would've went then. Bottom line is they are a solid squad that should be proud of the year they had. We're very close to...

Seems to me that the A champs not only beat the AA champs but also shut out the AA third place team and had their only loss come to AA fifth place. You can rip Hermantown however you want, but you can't deny they had a great team.

No kidding! And the losses come to two teams that finished in the top three of the state with one having a chance to win it all yet. Come on now people!

Re: Class A Championship: Breck vs. Hermantown

Do the Hawks break the skid, or do we see a 7-peat? I personally think Hermantown would crush EP and/or Wayzata. This team is deep, fast, physical, and determined. Scary good....... Crush? Then they are clearly playing in the wrong class. I think that's already been established. Wasn't that terribl...

Best part of the tournament so far is the couple new commercials that have been played 200 times each. Pretty sure I was rehearsing them in my sleep last night again.

Those of you who haven't seen Hermantown play have no idea how good they are. Fast, physical, deep, great passing and with good goaltending. If this doesn't go into running time I'll be shocked.

Not to super defend Breck, but they haven't won a title since '10. Also, they missed the tournament completely in '14 & spent '11 & last year at Mariucci. Plus with the enrollment #'s what they are, they really are more of a Class A team. Could they play up & compete well? Yeah, probably. But they'...

Hermantown by 10 in this one. By 5 in the next one. And by 3 for the title.
