Re: What happened to Followthepuck.com?

I would have thought it was possible to monetize his immense Twitter presence. Follow the Puck (Boys) has 22,500 followers, an incredible number. I think most of his following came in his first few years back when Twitter was huge amongst the high schoolers. Now it’s basically just for happy birthd...

Any updates on HF and Denfeld game at Mariucci? No updates on HF’s social media since beginning of game so guessing they haven’t scored.
HF currently leading 7-0. Pino with a HT. HF's Twitter has some video clips:

Thanks. I like your approach, but not sure I agree with Orono being a significant win.
It probably isn’t, but as he said he counts top 20 AA and top 10 A as significant. Believe he uses LPH rankings? So that’s where your gripe should be.

So.......what ranking system do you use? They all have their flaws.
Good question. For my idea above coaches vote? Each coach ranks the top 10 teams not in their section. That way you don’t have coaches picking all teams from their own section to give themselves an easier path in sections.

Re: Super State Tournament

Another idea that is kind of a happy medium between current system and a rankings based system: Top 8 ranked teams are auto-bids, and the remaining teams play out their regular sections minus the teams that are already there. Winner of each section round out the other 8 teams of a 16 team tournament...

Re: Best AA Section Top to Bottom

Short handed Goals

Last year Minnetonka was incredibly dangerous on the PK scoring 9 shorties during regular season and several more in the playoffs if I remember correctly. Just saw on hockey hub Chaska scored 2 more today for a total of 12. In fact, when they take a penalty they have a 21.8% chance of scoring (12/55...

BB has been doing well enough to be a favorite IMO. However, agree with those saying Koster is right there. 44 points in 19 games for a D is nuts.

Not sure if there’s been actual talk or not but it makes sense. Alex, EGF and Sartell can all field teams that can compete with the best at the AA level every few years. I didn’t know Mahtomedi was moving up already next year but that’s good to hear. One more team out of A that plays games against ...

Is there actual talk of Alex, EGF, Cathedral, and Sartell all moving up to AA or is that just your opinion on the matter? Also, St Cloud Tech/Apollo is already in 8AA no need for caps on that one. Same Q with Mahtomedi. For that matter, Waconia is close to moving up as well. Regardless, as a more ov...

Re: Section Assignments for 2019-21

They re-look at enrollment number to determine A vs AA, and then from there it’s 100% geographic. Might not seem logical sometimes (see 6AA with cretin) but the main rule is you cannot travel from school to school within your section while passing through a different section. Hmmmm traveling East o...

Does this automatically eliminate Chaska from a top 4 spot in Section seedlings? :) :x
I know this is tongue in cheek, but as the guys on the podcast like to say, this could be the ultimate transitive property ever.

Hibbing > Eveleth > Chaska > Edina > Minnetonka. Thus: Hibbing > Minnetonka!

4-0 Tonka over EP. Just looking at the box score that’s as classic a Minnetonka game as you’ll see. Teams stay with them through 2 and a half periods and then a quick couple goals and an empty netter later it looks like a blowout. However I thought this was still an uncharacteristicly sloppy game fo...

Update: didn’t realize until now that Miller for Minnetonka is out, resulting in a shake up of D pairings and splitting up Docter and Luedtke. That could explain the sloppiness. Miller was scratched for unspecified reasons. Crull was paired with Docter on the top D unit, I think, and Luedtke was pa...

0-0 still after 2 with EP-Tonka. Man, I haven’t been this unimpressed with Minnetonka in the last year and a half (I missed their game with Duluth Marshall though). Credit to EP for a strong forecheck and their D with good gap control not allowing Tonka’s forwards any time or space in neutral zone. ...
