Re: People wanting to stay A... about single A teams recruiting

What? Kniven arguably your best player is from Hibbing??? Since I’ve been around, we’ve had 2 transfers that have been impact players. The current Hibbing kid and a Duluth East kid back in 2010-2011. That’s about it... What about Rasmussen? Left Little Falls as an 8th grader, I believe. #-o

Re: 7AA FINALS

Yes, this is a true statement. Might be a surprise to some of you, but school districts are running on very large budget deficits .

Re: The Hermantown Thread

The MSHSL didn't create open enrollment; that primarily came from Gov. Rudy Perpich 30 years ago. Once that became the law it's hard to see what the MSHSL could have done. Barring everybody who open enrolls from athletics to prevent problems in high-profile sports would have victimized thousands of...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I still say, it is either all right or all wrong to ‘recruit’ players in high school. Hermantown is doing what SCC and Greenway and others do (or have done). Either they are all losers or none of them are. Where do you draw the line? MSHSL opened that pandora's box woth "open enrollment". Hermantow...

Re: 7AA FINALS

But both teams chose to play the game at Amsoil. They both had the chance to decline and find a rink in the merto. I believe part of the issue is, if the schools wanted a change, they had to pay for it...is that correct? Most school districts would have a hard time justifying that cost, if that is ...

I have only one question? Why in the ************* is your best player on the ice with five seconds left and it’s five to zero? Afraid of a comeback?

I lost all respect for you after that.

Re: 7AA FINALS

While the odd mix for north and south sections exist with the A/AA split. Gives forum users material for the week other than that I don't think it matters to the kids to be honest. Both teams are pumped to play in the section 7AA final and would drive to Roseau Memorial to get it on.

It was definitely in. Replay clearly showed that most if not all of the puck was across the line. Problem was the ref wasn’t behind the goal enough to see it cross and had blown the whistle. Goal judge would have seen it if there was one. Heard Peart was playing with bad thigh bruise from mid first...

Not the wisest of moves to go sit idle on a NA3HL bench. Had he remained at Cloquet he likely is playing this Saturday in the semi against Rapids.
