Every year during section time you can count on DJ to defend poor Amsoil arena. For me, I would much rather watch big high school hockey games at Hibbing Memorial and the IRA versus Amsoil any day. Play all the game in Cloquet's old Barn. Except you couldn't do any live streams because the cameras ...

Looking at the 7AA quarter-final scores, will anyone even try to play defense on Sat night?

Until they have exhausted all the other non-metro and metro host candidates and start the rotation over again. Except Baudette Bay would be skipped at the beginning of the second rotation since they already hosted twice. ;P

Re: Osseo/Maple Grove - What Happens at High School

On a side note, I don’t know what the heck is going on with Rogers. The high school team fell off the map in a hurry, and they aren’t even fielding a Bantam AA team this year. The PeeWee AA team is doing well, so hopefully that is a good sign for the future. Their squirt teams at the A, B1 and B2 l...

My issue with extending the periods 3 minutes is you're really only talking about adding 3 or 4 shifts per kid per game I don't see that changing the thought process of why kids are opting out of HS hockey. Now add 10 games and you may have peoples attention Agree. That's why I think the extended g...

I don't think it has a chance to go through and I think the supporters know that. They are trying to draw attention and plant a seed for future change. My hunch is they would eventually like to "concede" the increase in period length and "settle" for only getting increased number of games. Yes, I t...

Probably a question for elliott, but if anyone else has insight please share. Just wondering if MN Hockey ever talks about B1/B2 and either: 1) officially recognize two B classes or 2) tell everyone to knock it off, there is only AA,A,B,C.

Dang Elliot. Back in the 80's all I can remember is A, B, C. My dad, who handled our scheduling, told me we played AA. In a recent conversation about all the AA, A, B1, B2, C and all the different levels and subdivisions stuff I commented how back in my day all we had was A, B, & C, why do there ha...

I see B1 and B2 playing each other all the time at squirt, peewee and bantams. It happens in tournaments, especially "B" tournaments (not specifically designated as a B1 or B2 tournament), and I've also seen scrimmages set up between B1 and B2 teams. According to their handbook, Minnesota Hockey rec...

Re: WHY MOST PEOPLE CAN'T STAND CEC HOCKEY

....why is this? I've been a fan since 2009 of the Lumberjacks. Am I missing something here. I guess I really don't care, but I would like to know the reasons anyway.

I'm already not crazy about the 'everyone gets a medal' approach to mites. I'm even less crazy about beginning to apply that line of thinking to the High School State Tournament. Two state champions in hockey is enough. Start adding more and you'll end up with a football structure - we'll have six c...

Tournament Fees - What does your association cover?

Just curious, don't need to provide your association name. Our association used to only cover registration fee, if there was a separate gate fee that was the responsibility of the team.
