Does MN Hockey ever talk about the B1/B2 thing?

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.

Co-op with Gentry, DeLaSalle, Minnehaha and St. Agnes. I think in standings they are listed under Minnehaha.

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 did live in Duluth East up in the woodland area from 1997 - 2007. I loved Duluth East Hockey and Mike Randolph. I really wasn't aw...

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...

Elk River vs Totino-Grace Adam Sharratt, former Elk Bantam AA coach, now an assistant at TG. Wonder if his insight into Elk players will help the Eagles. I would expect ER by 4 or more.

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. However with the seemingly increased move by most associations to combine registration and gate fees into one regi...

An extra year for dad to try to recruit enough for a tourney run. Never thought of that. You may very well be correct. Do you mean MSHSL? Once you start 7th Grade repeating a grade doesn't get you an extra year. He would be out of eligibility after his Junior year. Not sure how this would help him ...

I don't deny the kids talent vs their peers and if they stay on the same projection they're currently at I believe they'd probably end up at the U of M anyway.

His coach this past season told me several times "he needs to play Bantams next year so he will have 3 years of HS hockey." He can play one year of bantams as a 9th grader and still play 3 years of HS hockey, lots of kids with July/August b-days do it. And lots of kids with July/Aug b-days move up ...

Echoing SCBlueLiner's thought's in the other thread, I think it will result in many of the associations that still field Bantam C teams to just declare B2 as their lowest level teams. You'll end up with just a handful of Bantam C teams in the metro area that end up playing in a mixed district league...
