Re: Super State Tournament

Part of the beauty of the tournament is there are only 8 teams, that the Friday semifinals are sometimes the best hockey you're ever going to witness locally at any level, and the section tournaments are full of angst because it's so difficult in many sections to put it altogether for 3 wins and mak...

Re: Super State Tournament

No. Cap it at 16 teams and include A and AA in the same tournament.

Re: YHH Podcast for 2/3/18 feat. Mike Vorlicky

If you listen to what you want to listen to, you will hear me say Glock and Frits have no business winning. But the fact remains, i agree that these two are deserving. But what pains me a lot with awards, guys like Mueller, Daninger and Boynton with very similar numbers and a lot less in front of t...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

There is no Denfeld, Marshall or Proctor that has access to this huge metro area either. :roll: Hermantown is successful because they have an excellent Hockey program and the highest % of boys that play hockey in the state. 1 Hermantown grade has about 75 boys of which 22 play hockey at the Bantam ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Here it is folks, this comment is a perfect example of why Scott Pionk is a lone voice in the Hermantown hockey wilderness. They truly do believe they are small-town, community hockey, and that being a suburb in an urban area of 120,000 (metro area of 270,000) has absolutely no effect on the succes...

Re: Possible Mr. Hockey Finalists 2018-2019

Has Tonka yet lost a game Luedtke played in?

But it's hard to argue with 3+ pts/game and Blaine has the #5 SOS as of right now so it has to be BB's to lose.

Re: Significant Injury Report

Does anyone know if Lagerbak and Luedtke will be back for the Eden Prairie game? Lagerback is likely out (2-4 weeks?). I've not heard any time table for Luedtke to return. How do you put a time table on frostbite? I guess I don't know what the recovery process is like for that. Good question - it w...

Re: PageStat 2018-19

I’d suggest throwing out goal differential altogether. It’s a double penalty for teams that play a steady diet of difficult teams with few blowout opportunities and a double reward for teams that play a steady diet of easier teams (the win and the padded goal totals). At a minimum, cap the goal dif...

Teddy Lagerback suffered bad enough frostbite during HDM he had to miss the Edina game and his status for returning is unknown.

So yeah.

Re: When will Minnetonka's first loss come?

Looks like the Hornets stung the Skips at Pagel. Took em to the woodshed 5-2. New Sheriff in the one spot for AA. Interesting game. Both teams looked average on offense through 2 periods although I think a lot of that was due to the fact both teams have great players on defense and are well coached...

Seeing complaints at GPL claiming Tonka is diving. I can't see the game but I have been able to watch several games online this year and I don't think I'd ever have associated them with Robbie Earle era Wisconsin teams.

We evidently have gotten soft over the years. Roseau and Blaine played outdoors in Baudette with windchills that went below -35! Probably a bad decision they're trying to avoid repeating?

Re: When will Minnetonka's first loss come?

I didn't have these stats that you just provided. It was just a conversation on a silly hockey forum I do think EP has more horsepower up front which could lead to more offense and possibly better power play. The biggest difference you point out is how good Tonka PK is compared to EP's. If this hol...
