Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Incorrect on several levels. St. Francis is now in 5A, and are the second largest true Class A school by enrollment. Also, East (1363 students) is well above the A/AA cutoff point and is not opting up. Northfield is the smallest AA school at 1252 students. 2019–20 MSHSL enrollments [/quote All I’m ...

3. We can introduce historic games in the first couple rounds played at some of the old great arenas around the state (imagine an Edina versus Minnetonka playoff game at say Warroad Arena) Clearly you haven't looked closely at the Edina schedule. Their varsity doesn't venture north of the Metro. Mu...

Grand Rapids is primed for one of its ugliest years in the past couple decades. Three stars have moved on to junior hockey. The head coach left. Last year's bantams weren't great. Last year's JV wasn't great. Rumor has it six players were recently caught drinking and have suspensions to serve. Coul...

1-0 Benilde after 1. Rapids got their first shot on goal with 3 seconds left in the period. Shots are 24-1. Don't see how Rapids will make it to 5 wins with their brutal schedule. I can see more than a couple of games going into running time. Did 4-5 guys really make the difference between state ch...

On the other hand, if you go by smaller kids forechecking in the offensive zone , I would have to rank Blake Mcgloughlin as one of the most effective for forecheckers despite his small size because of his tenacity if he is fresh and fired up.

Thought for the day (and this isn't me complaining about seeding, I don't care). Would HM be seeded if Cloquet (3 seed) had come out of 7AA as opposed to Grand Rapids (4 seed)? It is curious that a team who was good enough for the 4 seed in their section was able to pull the 5 seed at state... Cons...

Not a bad suggestion, but it would be easier if teams that play against AA competition all throughout youth levels and the high school regular season would just decide to play against AA competition during the HS playoffs also.

Guys, Maybe I can clarify the data in the graph a little bit. The data was from the 2014-2015 season (nation wide). I cut out all the non-Minnesota team in the list below, so that why you will see the ranking number jump as you go down the list. During that season, the Edina & Wayzata JGA teams wer...
