Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

That’s certainly another way to skin the cat (no offense to any cat lovers, ha ha) and so crazy it just might work. I’m not ambitious enough to determine what the new cutoff line would be, but it would likely push Northfield, Mahtomedi, Sartell, and Alexandria up to AA, among others. As with any su...

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

Stang..... I wonder what would happen if we changed the A tournament to the smallest 64 schools in stead of AA to the biggest 64 schools. Hill Murray and Roseau would clearly be among the smallest 64 but they could opt up anyway. Given the F/R lunch exemption we already give Minneapolis, my hunch i...

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

The Single A Quarterfinals could be made much better with very little imagination in the section reassignment process. It might water down the section final games though in some sections.

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

Here's a potential solution. Take the top two teams from each section for the AA tournament, start it on Tuesday. Leave the A tournament the same. This would get more new teams into the AA tournament. It might also lure some of the bigger A schools into AA. I could see an Alexandria, EGF, Hermantow...

The one class tournament would suck and it would have the same 8 teams every year. It would improve nothing.

Re: Class A 2019-2020

Little Falls - Had some strong younger players who should only get better 5. River Lakes - will cha...

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

Hermantown, East Grand Forks, St. Cloud Cathedral, Alexandria. Move these teams up to AA. Then make a few moves to the sections in the metro and it’ll help. Also not sure why teams (like Mounds View, Hopkins, St Louis Park, Anoka, Burnsville, Jefferson, etc...) don’t recruit like Edina, Tonka or EP...

Re: East Grand Forks vs St. Cloud Cathedral

EGF will have to play very physical and take advantage of their scoring opportunities in this one. If SCC has a weakness it might be a goalie that hasn't been challenged very much during the year. Not saying he isn't good, but when your team is in the offensive zone most of the time most games you m...

Re: Players under the radar at the tourney

Agree with the New Ulm goalie. He was amazing and obviously a kid who can steal a game for you. I was sitting right behind him and you could see his intensity and compete level were high.

Re: AA QF: #5 Duluth East vs. #4 St. Thomas Academy

In Duluth East I saw a team that was fast, physical and sharp but couldn't score. From reading past DE threads, it seems this was an issue during the regular season as well.

Players under the radar at the tourney

Who are some of the less hyped players that are impressing at the tournament this year? I was impressed with the #14 defenseman for Minnesota River.

Another Brodzinski

Unreal! How many Brodzinskis are out there? And are they all D1 players? Are they all brothers? Is this unprecedented that so many brothers are D1 players? I suppose you have the Brotens.

Cathedral was my pick to win it all over a month ago so I think they win this game of course. I think they win pretty big.

And that home ice advantage wasn't a problem for Trent Klatt and co. Bottom line is play better and be more determined to win than your opponent. Yeah the soft metro kids have no heart and don't play hard. GEZ Exactly, we just WIN ALL THE TITLES Just to be clear, I'm a closet DE fan and glad they w...
