Re: Lumberjacks depth in 7AA

Kniven, you’ve got to expand your framework (regarding depth) to back before you came on the scene in 2009...Cloquet has had some plenty deep teams pre 2009. 59, I was thinking they must have been pretty deep the year they made the single-class state tournament even though Corey Millen was injured ...

Re: 2018-19 USA TODAY Preseason Boys Hockey Team

Mark, from what I can tell after seeing the last couple years you absolutely have to play school hockey. Shattuck-St. Mary's yes, NAHL/USHL no. I think the names sourced for preseason consideration weigh heavily, at least for some, on what the kids did at USA Hockey's National Camp for their age gro...

Re: Rosters

It's going to be FUN to watch him develop as The Secret is only a SOPHOMORE! Coming out of the net, cutting angles, the anchoring, the lateral quickness, the glove all guided by keen vision is, at first glance? Most impressive. Ok, I'm admittedly choking on cake now so I'll stop. Heck, goalies are ...

Re: 2018-19 USA TODAY Preseason Boys Hockey Team

He's leading the USHL in scoring. When Mittelstadt did that he was the 8th pick.

I'll be very surprised if Donovan falls that far. He's got great size and is an awesome skater.

Re: AA Preseason Rankings 2018-2019

I think I really agree with Karl’s opinion here and Tony’s on the podcast that too many people are forgetting about Prior Lake in 2AA. I saw them play once last season. It was against Holy Family in Sections. They were completely outclassed in that one. I'll take your word on it. 2AA looks tough to...

This was a great hockey game. Credit all the girls on both teams for an incredible compete level. These teams could play 10 times and it would probably each team winning 3 or 4 and tying the rest. When I saw them play in January it didn't seem like the teams played as well as they did today. Both lo...

That is weird. He was traded in the USHL for Ben Almquist. Does not show playing anywhere.

Re: 2018-19 Rankings & Polls

I think the MSHSL is leaving a lot of money on the table by not going to a straightforward tournament knockout format for AA. There are 65 AA teams, just move one team down (looking at you Irondale) and use the KRACH rankings to seed the teams. This year would likely lead to a final four at State o...

Re: Early Departures 2018-19

Are they just picking up his rights before somebody else? Basically. He could play immediately or go to camp with them for next season. I am pretty sure all it means is that he has to play for the Magicians if he plays in the NAHL. The only way this is a big loss for the Hounds is if he plays for t...

I always do wait, just in case there's a practice surprise. Expect them either late Tuesday or Wednesday.
My list was very little changed since the one I did back in late March. For all the talk about players coming and going it just didn't change things much.

Wild a** guess at AA

4 Edina
10 Brainerd
Edina at 4 seems low. You must be ignoring returning players and Elite League performance.

I hope Brainerd is that strong.
