Re: Class A Rankings 11-23-2014

4. Warroad (0-0) The Warriors may be second fiddle in the section, but they return two pieces of their 252 point line from last year as well as their tender. Loaded with a typical Warroad schedule, the Warriors will have more than enough opportunity to be the top seed in their section or top seed g...

Sadly, for EGF, this is true...with those 3 they should have made another strong run at state. Without them...they're still a very good team, just not as deep.

With Bethune leaving Warroad, 8a will be a cakewalk for egf this year, even if Roth stays at Warroad. TRF will be very, very weak, and no one else has a chance. Unless some "new" faces show up at Warroad very quickly. Again, lol. It's funny how one player is/was able to change the thoughts on the s...

I'd disagree with your ND players comment karl. I can think of kids, from most, if not all, section 8 teams that would have been just as good, and in some cases, better picks. I see no reason why, if they want to be in the league, they can't form their own team, as other states have. As to the GP t...

Yep...I thought Warroad took it to them...those 4 dmen were clearing everything and everybody from in front of the net. The Green Wave really wasn't able to develop much offensively. Warroad forced them into a lot of turnovers, and was really able to generate a lot of quality shots on Weber, but he ...

3-2 EGF in 2ot

Just a fantastic game! The Warroad defensemen were outstanding. Just remarkable that Roth, Bethune, and Sylvester had any legs at the end...just so much fun to watch.

First off, every single one of these "recruits" is a joy to watch. Say what you want, but if you can't enjoy watching that line from Warroad, or Yon bulldozing his way to the net, or watching the Lovens mix it up in the corners, you don't love hockey. They all show a great deal of pride in, and resp...

Brierley came from Crookston, I believe. Also, Lovens moved to EGF, from Fargo, when Brandon was in sixth (?) grade. Their dad is from Grand Forks, and played for UND.

EGF 8-1 over DL.
Shots 62-12.

DL had very little skill...gooned it up after the first couple of goals. Refs sent the teams off the ice at the end...no handshake line.

I am curious to know...how many players off team USA came through college hockey? Just off the top of my head: Quick, Miller, Parise, Suter, McDonagh, Faulk, Oshie, Kessel, VanRiemsdyk, Kesler, Backes, Howard, Martin, Orpik, Shattenkirk, Wheeler, Stepan, Pavelski, Stastny... Many played only a year...

I'd be curious to see what the cost of travel would be if EGF had opted up. Playing a 8AA schedule would mean trips to Sartel, St. Cloud, etc... I would think the school district is on the hook for any travel costs, and I thought that EGF has gone through some budget cuts within the district. But ma...

And I don't buy for a minute, that they are as good as the top AA teams. Why? If I may ask. Because I think the top AA teams are better, in all positions. Why are they better? Statistically, they stack up to teams like Wayzata... EGF is strong enough defensively. They don't allow many quality shots...

Two years ago, the group of soph/juniors of EGF took second at the state A bantam tourney... So you can take that for what it's worth...I think that Bowen and Eades would have been eligible to play on the bantam team, too, but played varsity, instead.

I think two players came into the program in PeeWees. I think the rest are Squirts or earlier.
