SSP has played all top 20AA/10A teams except HF and is 3-2-1. Pretty solid all around team. If you think the #5-7 ranked team (probably where SSP belongs) is really that bad, maybe there shouldn't be class A girls hockey. Just put the 3-4 "Good" teams in AA. DubCHA. Did someone say SSP is bad team?...

Re: Girls JV vs U14A - Which is Better?

Looking for some opinions on what is better purely from a development perspective, playing U14A as an 8th/9th grader or playing JV as an 8th/9th grader? Throw out cost and convenience for the purposes of this conversation. Coaching, ice time, etc. being equal I would say U14A. Longer season and gen...

Re: STA

Fact is STA stood at a meeting and argued that they best belong in a conference where they have gone 52-4 in football and 105-13-3 (100-2-3 if we don't include their 5-11 vs. Hill-Murray) in hockey the past 8 years. They could have argued for placement in the SEC or SSC where they would obviously f...

AA has two main Section foes TG and SSP. TG being private can recruit or maybe we are nice and use the word attract just like AA. SSP has done its share of attracting girls (or their parents) to their school. Is this still true or a thing of the past? Of the players listed on this year's SSP Varsit...

High School hockey is really falling off the map is it not? It seems to get worse every year. Ten high schoolers is not good. I would put your count down to two or three HS players as most left early for opportunities elsewhere. 8 drafted either played out their HS years or are still in HS. Good to...

Pretty cocky considering STA hasn't won the Classic Suburban outright in any of the mainstream sports (Soccer, Football, Bball, Hockey, Wrestling, Baseball, Track) since fall of 2011 (Football), which went on to lose to SSP (who they didn't play during that CSC season) during sections. That said, th...

I'm not thinking any specific team. I'm looking at quality of play/players of Tier 1 Elite Hockey League U18 vs. anything south of Lakeville. Not many HS teams can hang with the top 30-40 or so Midget Major teams. Usually the top 10-12 AA schools and this year STA and Hermantown could fit in, but t...
