Curious to hear from the Hibbing fans as to what happened to their big line?

Only 13 total teams shots against a team not known for their defense, seems like pretty low total for the way the Jackets and that line have been hyped.

The better team won, Tromp is the reason Rapids won by 2 goals. I thought the first period was the best one for Hibbing with the best chances but after that it was pretty much Rapids.

It's definitly time to get rid of the reserved seats thats for sure.

Wasn't a great game to watch. Pretty sloppy play by both teams. The Hibbing goaltender did a great job keeping his team in the game. Didn't even notice the so-called "hyped line". That can happen when you play better competition.

Yes it's time to get rid of reserved seating at Rapids. Most people do not know that some of the seats are reserved. If the reserved seating is necessary lets put them all in the same section.
Some families have been sitting in their reserved spots for years. I don't think its fair to them that they have to give up their seats to some out of town family.

Agree some maturity is needed but visitor fans dont need a whole side of seats to sit in. Home fans should always have the first pick because they buy season seats months in advance.

reserved seating or no reserved seating does not matter much. I like Hibbing and think they have a decent shot in section 7A this year. They are small but motor pretty good out on the ice and have very good goaltending. Rapids played well with the new line changes.

All these fans would have to do is get the alittle bit earlier. Hibbing's students filled up 2 sections of kids with some parents mixed in, and some parents mixed in decided to throw some garbage at some kids and fill their hoods with torn up rosters and other garbage. That gives all of the parents a bad look.

As a season ticket holder for a while now, I think it's about time to block off the sections in which season tickets can be sold, like the players bench side of the arena. The north end and penalty box side could then be general admission seating for visitors and anyone who doesn't want to spend the money up front on season tickets. That would be a lot better for the visitors then back in the day when the visitors only got sections A&B. But that would be opening a can of worms for the AD, so it probably won't ever happen.

I go to watch hockey, not to record music. But, they might have something on the district 318 website.
.

As bad as this may sound- with nothing against the band - I kind of prefer the music over the PA. And they don't even play the opposing teams school song anymore? What's up with that?

Boy, you almost nailed the SOG. Could playing on the smaller sheet of ice have affected the #1 line from HBG, or was it that GR was much more effective throughout the game with the forecheck? HBG looked very skiddish in numerous instances as the game went on.

the number one line for hibbing got a little fancy at times out there and lost control of the puck. not much else to say, it wasnt the ice, they always win in the section semis on that ice

What happened is Hibbing's much hyped top line played against a team with similar talent or more, and were neutralized. That's what happens when comparable teams play each other. The Jackets top line dominates lesser opponents and is very average against teams of similar abilities.

And what did Rapids' top line do against Hibbings top line? atleast Hibbing's players are all from Hibbing and none from the surrounding areas talent!

As I said Rapids top line has Moore and Underwood (from Greenway) about 6th in AA in points? And Hibbing is around 1stin A. It was a good match up. I hope you really didn't expect them to put up huge numbers in Rapids? Again Rapids top line didn't do much either.

didn't expect huge numbers... i am not trying to bash hibbing or their starting line at all, i think the team is tough and have some special talent. i dont know their exact starting line-up but anderson, decenzo, johnson have 65 % of the goals themselves. team really counts on them

I'm not saying these kids aren't talented, it takes talent and hard work to put up those numbers against any team. All I'm saying is that the numbers wouldn't be nearly as high if they were playing quality AA schools on a consistent bacis.
