Koelling

Christian graduated in my class, and I sure think that would be cool to have somebody my age coaching a high school team. My only question about that is if coaches at East need to be teachers. I'm sure some of you up there would know, but unless Christian has done some serious extra schooling, he's ...

The Best Feeling

"The best feeling you can have" is entirely up to whoever is playing. I recall Neal Broten saying at one point that he'd have given up his NCAA title, Olympic gold medal, and Stanley Cup to have won the state high school tournament with his friends. It's all a matter of what you value. If you want t...

Lee,<br><br>What's that stuff on the front page of your website about? Did somebody just print out this thread and send it to Randolph or something?

Some joke

Compared to the rest of the country, Minnesota hockey is a joke? Are you serious? Name another state that produces as many D-1 players as this one, particularly at upper echelon schools like you find in the WCHA (UND, U of M, CC, etc.) Most of the eastern D-1 teams are winning games on the strength ...

Re: Troy

Several of the Minnesota games were closer than in year's past. I don't think you have to look much farther than the fact that literally an entire team's worth of kids went directly to play in the USHL after the season.

Re: parrish

Nope; he sat on the bench. He was on the tournament team but was a JV guy that year. That should tell you something about that team. In fact, that pretty much sums up that team: Mark Parrish was a 4th liner. <p></p><i></i>

It really doesn't matter if you play in "blowouts" or "close games" or anything else that you want to try to define. What matters is if you're getting an inordinate amount of points against terrible competition, or if you're simply playing a very weak schedule all the time. <br><br>Yes, I Falls' sch...

Re: Top Ten things about state hockey

I've always enjoyed going and seeing the place go bananas when somebody scores against the Jaguars. Then exactly 2 sections of people cheer when Jefferson scores, while the rest of the fans sit there. Same thing happens with Edina, but for those 3 years, man, everybody hated the Jags, and they dance...

Yes, we've all seen that list. That's Bruce's list from the dent0110 site, and it doesn't reflect much of anything beyond preseason predictions of performance.

Jimmy is a very good passer. I didn't see the game, so I don't know specifically what you're talking about, but he sees the ice better than most.
