Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I'm sure Duluth would love to host Can’t do that. The northern teams would always win every single year due to home ice advantage. Could rotate it between Duluth and the cities. Then every other year you’ll have a northern team and a southern team as section champs since the home team always wins t...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Just a thought on 7AA now with 8 competitive teams, meaning no more 14-0 blowouts of Cambridge, I think a lot of fans would love to see a quadruple header like 4AA does with their quarterfinal games all in one day at Aldrich. I know teams like to have one last home game for QF, but it sure would be ...

That was never going to happen.
With all due respect, my info was from a source more credible than yourself.
Yes, really credible.

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Welp, not sure what happened in the last month with the Brainerd thing. Anoka in, St. Francis and Cambridge to 5A. Nonetheless, no more super easy game for the 1 seed in 7AA. No more play-in game. 4 southern teams, 4 northern teams. Not sure how I'd rank the teams next year since I don't know anythi...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

The Hounds are going to need to re-establish themselves as a team that can score. Will they have a player, perhaps Jeanetta, that can be the horse they can rely on? It seems to get to state you not only need an aforementioned great goalie, you also need that elite guy that can snipe a 35' shot into ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

This is the 2nd year of a 3 year stretch where Cloquet won the Bantam North Regional, I wouldn't sleep on them. I think Knivens boys go south next March! I like Cloquet, but I feel like this is the 4th year in a row of hearing this. Would love to see Cloquet be like in 06-07 years when they had as ...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Going to be interesting to see if Grand Rapids can score high in the QRF this year. They’ll have Benilde, Holy Family, WBL, Wayzata, Hill Murray, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, Forest Lake and even Duluth East at home. Edina Classic will be their only trip to the cities. This is assuming no changes to opp...

Re: AA Consolation: Duluth East vs Lakeville South

I wonder if the TRIA rink Minnesota Wild practice arena would be a better venue for the consolation games? That would definitely be interesting, and I think it would be a fun atmosphere. I'm curious how long the contract is for with Mariucci. If we are going to kick the wild out of their home games...

Re: Duluth East at Andover, Section 7AA Final

Or Duluth Marshall could improve to a top 4 team in 7AA. I’ve heard a rumor that Andover might get moved and replaced with Brainerd. That would make for one hell of a semifinal Saturday. Brainerd is a growing hockey community and has the stability at head coach to be relevant for a long time. They h...

Thanks, appreciate the support for the Raiders. Hoping they keep up their high level of play and pull off a couple of more upsets.

You guys complaining about homefield advantage for DE, check out the unfairness of 6A. And that home ice advantage wasn't a problem for Trent Klatt and co.
