For those that complain about the seeding it is really simple. Look at the schedule for the year. EP plays tough teams night in and night out with only 3 real breaks for the whole year--2 games against Hopkins who are in their conference and Cloquet, a team that beat Bemidji. Wayzata folks can mild...

I like Farmington in 1AA, they'll actually have to play a section title game with winning in mind Instead of not being put in running time but I think this may be the Tigers year. Nothing against North other than conplacency. If only I could see the stock market with this clarity...... That is pret...

You have to respect the work and effort that Little Falls has put forth in many games this season with it finally paying off with their Semifinal victory. They played Apollo extremely tough the first time around, taking them to overtime and they absolutely brought it yesterday. Apollo is the hardes...

DID YOU WATCH THE GAME??? Watching those penalty calls on the big screen and on the news highlights make it obviously clear that those were good calls. OBVIOUS. I'm sorry a good Warroad team lost their composure and in the process lost a good game. I'm sorry the team that was better today has to ha...

Re: Duluth East vs Elk River

Do the DEast Hounds have any chance? And what ever happened to EREmpireStrikesBack? An experienced hockey mind like yours actually wonders if Duluth East has a chance? Did they have a chance last year against the feared Elks or Rapids? C'mon man, y'all know better than to count out the Hounds. East...

So, I haven't been keeping up with teams this year like past years. I am definitely for the northern teams. Some wont like me for saying this, but I wouldn't mind getting to see rapids at state.

Watching Hermantown play is like watching the Vikings or Cubs!! What in the world is going on here? There definitely is a curse. Didn't even think of that, but you're right. They find every possible way to lose. Only thing is Hermantown actually makes championship games. Now they have this title ga...

Many of them are the same every year. I kind of like them because they have that feel that makes you know it's March and tournament time. With that said, I think the better question is if you had to choose one of the actors/actresses to win a Golden Globe, which would it be? I would vote the pig fro...

Hard to have a more fun start to the day than this one so far. Packed house, back and forth game, and the physicality's gone to the next level. I think EGF is a bit better in their ability to take over the offensive zone, but they're also walking a fine line with all this hitting... Can't believe t...

Give New Ulm some credit here. They're doing what they need to do, for the most part, not getting caught out of position much and staying out of the box. Two of the Mahtomedi goals were very soft, and New Ulm had the misfortune of that quick whistle on that near-breakaway goal. I'm not really sayin...
