Incorrect. Next guess?

Correct. 9 HS state titles says it all.
Don't you know how to read? Next guess?

:idea:
OK.......Roseau, Warroad and Grand Rapids. Happy?
Getting a little better, but still wrong. Next guess?

I'm calling shenanigans on the post numbers here, ERE... this guy's making too easy for you!
Hey, I got him to change it once. We'll just see how far he goes. If I push for St. Paul, will that help?

:idea:
No.......It is still Edina! I just thought I could appease you. I was wrong regarding appeasement. Just for you, The City of St. Paul.
Stick around, you will learn about my appeasement.

And no, St. Paul is not for me. You can keep trying if you would like since Edina won't take you back anymore.

State tournament in St. Paul... Move it up North and make the Cities teams travel 8 hours by bus and stay in a motel instead of at home in their own beds and I'll bet the trophy NEVER leaves the Northland.

This is the truest statement I have read on here yet.

Looks like East Hockey has a stalker on his hands!

With all the TV coverage, why would you need a rink that seats more than 1800?

The Cities faithful could stay in the metro area and not have to deal with the dangerous part of the state north of St. Cloud. There's lots of them thar trees up nort and not a whole lot of dem humans.

They would truly learn what "Hicks from the sticks" means.

The post refers to heritage and tradition. You have to still be wet behind the ears if you think this criteria begins in the late 1980's.

Let me see
Thief river Falls has the NICEST Area in the State for high School Hockey, with a rich History
Roseau, has One of the best hockey histories, and also FREE hockey (making the game playable by all the kids). 3 sheets of ice in a town of 2700.
Warroad, a town of 1800, has 2 sheets of ice. and 1 hidden sheet. also another very rich history.
International Falls, great history, but has not done much in the last 20 years, kinda going backwards now.
If we take all 4 of these schools and combined them, multiplied that by 3: it would be as big as ONE city team. and yet each of these schools can fend for themself on the ice. and the city schools have kids jumping from school to school just to try to compete with one of the northern teams.
also we should mention:
Grand Rapids, kinda the mirror imagine of Roseau just with less titles. maybe not quite as deep with history.
Hibbing, Bemidji, Duluth. kinda in the same field.
PS --- a northern team is not towns north of ST. Cloud, it is from Highway #2 and north.

THE CREAM ALWAYS RISES TO THE TOP or to the NORTH if your talking about hockey.

2000 - Blaine
2001 - Elk River
2002 - Holy Angels
2003 - Anoka
2004 - Centennial
2005 - Holy Angels
2006 - Cretin
2007 - Roseau

We appear to be doing just fine flannel brain! Is one in a row a trend to my northern fiends?

I have no idea where you're coming up with this, but if you took all of the metro schools, multiplied them by 3, it wouldn't make a bit of difference to anything and means nothing... much like your analogy.

And let's be serious about TRF - they hit the "Rich Alum Jackpot" with that arena. I'm not knocking it, I wish Johnson had one just like it, but c'mon... it has nothing to do with their "rich history" (well, I guess it might, depending on what your definition of "rich" is).

If you want to talk about arenas. Look no further than St. Paul. The downtown economy relies on hockey. That is not the case with Roseau, Warroad, Duluth, Hibbing, etc. The St Paul economy lives and dies with hockey. The SP hockey tradition is as rich and deep as any Minnesota town. Those two factors make St Paul the best hockey town in Minnesota.
