Re: Transfers 2020-21

ummmmm.... can we get a goalie transfer in Grand Rapids? Honestly not sure whoze in the pipeline to replace Clafton, but HTown shouldn't get all the elite talent wanting to relocate in the 218. With our bloated local government, I'm sure there's some sort of cushy job that we could come up with for ...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

So would you say that the loss of football could cause a domino effect on other sports for the upcoming season? It’s hard to envision a school committing resources to non-revenue spring sports in that event. There may be some exceptions, like East or Rapids where hockey is a big revenue sport, but ...

Re: 7AA 2020-2021

Andover is going to rule 7AA again next winter with their depth. No team will have their quality depth top to bottom. It seems Duluth East will be all sophomores and a couple 8th graders with the talent. Rapids won’t be deep and no returning netminder. Elk has numbers and new rink next winter. 😳😳😳😳...

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.

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...

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...

Virtually no relevance between states such as SD & MN, some teams have played as little as one game, and a handful of Jr Gold teams included as well?

The only thing all these teams have in common is that they all are comprised of teenagers...
