The only problem I see so far is that I don't think that class 'A' should be less then half of 'AA'. Sure, teams can opt up but there is no way you can say Warroad is a lesser program because they don't opt up. We all know they could make the 'AA' tourney quite often, but it would come down to them...

Warroad 4 Roseau 1 final I guess being AA doesn't automatically make you better Wow! I must say I was a bit shocked to see the score. I didn't expect it, since Warroad seems to be a bit down this year--more so than Roseau, I thought. Good thing I was too busy to listen to the game last night... The...

That's what they said about Tonka last year (myself included) and Edina the year before that...everyone has a shot at State at this point in the season. Teams with less "star" talent have a better shot because they play better as a team when it counts. One of the most intelligent posts I have read ...

Re: Hornets/Rams

While I think it would be extremely hilarious for Edina to lose in the quarterfinals against a Section 8 team for the 2nd year in a row that they were supposedly "heavily favored" to beat (according to some), I have to think Giles will have his team more than ready and motivated so history doesn't ...

But its not only about who is a better pro prospect. Aaron Ness won the award over Jake Gardiner but Gardiner was the better prospect. Its not just NHL scouts that vote. Its also people in the media who argue that a class A hockey team is no better than a class AA jv team. Warroad is as good as any...
