Re: Fluid AA Offseason Top 25

Rankings updated in the first post. Changes: -Grand Rapids moves up slightly due to a transfer from Duluth East I learned about on the YHH podcast. Duluth East barely hanging on to honorable mention status. -Roseau nudged down slightly because, frankly, they don't have a coach yet. -Rochester Mayo ...

Re: Section 7AA Final - Andover vs Grand Rapids

Ouch! That’s got to be the most heartbreaking loss I’ve witnessed in my years as a Rapids fan. To dominate the way they did and come up short, will linger with these boys for some time. As usual, they had many great opportunities to put pucks on net and crash hard for rebounds, but instead tried to ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

There are two simple ways/rule changes to fix the Hermantown issue. One by Minnesota Hockey, the other by the MSHSL -- I've stated this before but, will do so again. The first is for the MSHSL to create a rule that prevents a Class "A" school from scheduling games against "AA" level teams outside o...

How is this a net negative? "Same conference means one game, not two. And Rapids has scheduled them twice the last few years, before they were in the LSC.

Re: Grand Rapids vs Hermantown

Hermantown is clearly better than them. I don’t understand why East scheduled them twice either. Could result in their worst seed in years. I’ve heard the Covid, keep things local thing but East was just at Minnetonka and Rapids went to Aldrich to play Hill-Murray. So not sure how that applies. Rap...

Grand Rapids 3-0 over Duluth East 2nd period
Final score 3-0. SOG something like 25-7.
Rapids definitely not as effective offensively without Easton Young. He takes a lot of pressure off Peart because they then can’t just focus on him.

Besides Miller and Ratzlaff , other names missing
I noticed so far :

Hogg: played Blades last year
Langenbrunner
Borst

A few others are Blake, Middelstadt, Peart, Liffrig

Rumors swirling about Hogg's upcoming season destination
Peart had planned on playing for Fargo of the USHL this fall.

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

As I stated in an earlier post, Clafton could end up on the Rapids staff. Personally, I hope that doesn’t happen. I’ve had some conversations with a player or two when he was an assistant at Rapids for one season. Sounds like a very tough guy to play for...lots of negativity and derogatory statement...

Clafton has submitted his recognition for Greenway. Expect Andy Sertich to be the favorite to get the job if he wants it.
Guessing Clafton will be on the Rapids bench this winter as an assistant to Coach Chiodo or possibly associate head coach. I’ve heard the two are good friends.
