Schools will recruit (legally and openly), will be able to offer "scholarships" for players, and the level of talent will slowly but surely fade from the public schools to the private schools. That being said, obviously not everyone can afford a private school, and there will be talent left in the ...

Cloquet had the best student representation at Amsoil on Saturday. Not only for their game against East but a good percentage of them stayed for the GR-ER game. Rapids easily had the best overall fan representation - not surprising as they have always traveled really well. The East student section ...

Re: goal

Heresay is when someone tells me of something they saw and then I tell someone else. in this case, it's direct evidence: I saw the photograph on the Jefferson parent's digital camera, as did several other BJ parents. The puck was across the line. Again, what I say I saw cannot be heresay. Now, if y...

It looks like we'll have as many as 7 Class AA 20+ win teams at the Excel. Section 1AA is the only section remaining without a 20+ win team. 6 of the other sections have lower seeds with 20+ games already in Section 8AA, Brainerd has 21 wins already. I'll go out on a limb and seed the State Tourname...

A couple of edits made to Zach Driscoll's name ( #-o ), the number of times Wayzata lost to Edina, and Roseville's section. Playoff hockey is eating at my editing skills, apparently. I did remember the Wayzata goalie situation in the Benilde games, as mentioned in my blurb on the thread for the 6AA...

Re: goal or no

I will only contribute to this conversation on one point: goal or not. Here is my input ... A Jefferson parent (whom I never met before) showed me and others around him a photo he took with his 18-inch long lense. The puck was clearly across the line, and there was nothing to suggest the net was of...

They should give some serious thought to stacking privates in 1 or 2 sections. With St Thomas coming in, we risk a scenario where you've got the metro represented on an annual basis by Hill Murray, BSM, St. Thomas and Edina (which, let's face it - benefits as well as any private from elite move-ins)...

Benilde scored a goal at the 15:53 mark of the third to go up 9-0 on Armstrong, stat line reads like this; 15:53 Goal - T.J. Moore (#23). Assists: Dan Labosky (#27), Grant Besse (#12) Well, when you are trying to justify this type of marketing, every point counts :idea: http://www.mnhockeyhub.com/n...

Have you read the discussion at all? And "Worst teams in HS hockey"? Oh yea, STA and Moorhead are the "worst teams". Arguably made the biggest impact in HM's victory over STA, and he and his line dominated the Moorhead game. *sigh* OK, give it a rest HF1394 and WW. Out of respect for Joey Anderson ...

I like the name Zach better so Eastview should move up 3 spots in the rankings because of this. Thanks for the correction?!?!? :roll: Not a problem. Easy to make corrections for Karl, cuz he doesnt make many mistakes. Trying to correct all your posts however .... now that's a full time job :wink:

But none of that takes away a parent's (legal) right to advocate on behalf of their kid. It could be anything! They are not "young adults" as someone here said. They are minor children. Exactly.

Exactly. Abuse takes many forms. Parents should use good judgement when assessing the situation, but by all means, proceed if you feel your children are being mis-treated.
