As for predictions, I'll go East 3 G Rock 2
Saturday, It was about 3/5's packed. Thursday, it will be completely packed.
I don't think it will be as full as you expect.. though I would think in the neighborhood of 4500 people will show up. It will be a pro Rapids crowd for sure. There were twice as many people there by the time the Cloquet/Rapids game started as when the doubleheader started too, at least as far as the photo evidence in my shots tells me.
Sounds about right. I'd say a maximum of 5,000 will show up.

Like everyone has said, its the administration. Hockey games arent fun for the kids to go to anymore. Not allowed to chant anything but "lets go east" and "ehs". Last year they threatened to not sell the kids State tickets. Ridiculous. Anyone close to East knows who is at fault too.
Go Hounds.

I'm not even 'close' to East and I've heard stuff.

karl(east) wrote: My questions:
The first time these two teams played, GR overloaded the top line. Since then, they've split that group up and gone for more balance. So, who will they put out there to try to keep East's top line in check?
For East, they may rely on the top line for a lot of scoring, but there are some pretty good players on the 2nd and 3rd lines, too...how do they match up against their counterparts?
Which version of the GR powerplay shows up; the one that shredded Cloquet on Saturday, or the one that spent half the 3rd period of the first GR-DE game one man up and couldn't score?
Will the pressure of the section final get to anyone?
Will East fans show up?
1. GR will come out with a more balanced and cohesive team compared to the last meeting they had with EAST.

2. EAST has depth; more than GR. Depth is a strong deciding factor in the playoffs; however, EAST needs to produce goals as well. If they don't have troubles with their offense, they should be fine.

3. EAST's PK is a lot better than CEC's PK so I don't see GR's PP being the deciding factor; however, you never know... I will say EAST has a better chance of shutting down GR's PP though.

4. Of course section finals will get to the players; however, after the first few shifts they should be fine.

5. Yes, the EAST fans will be there. Just not cheering that much... :roll:

There you go, Karl.

I assume you meant Amsoil Arena and not DECC. Regardless, where were the bands and cheer leaders (besides those from Rapids)?? Canned music is fine because, as you stated, the atmosphere was dead. But this is section semifinal hockey and no bands or cheer leaders. Major disappointment with those issues and the lack of East fans and especially lack of East students.

East was on break, so I'm guessing that's why no band was at Amsoil on Saturday. I'd expect more students and a band there from both schools on Thursday.

Its unfortunate that the AD at East has to limit what students can do at a game, takes a lot of school spirit out of the students who do go.

East was on break and the Cheerleaders were gone. Just wait until Thursday the place will be packed.

There probably won't be video, but there should be a radio feed. FAN 1490 had the semifinals available online, and MSBN may or may not send someone as well.

I said DECC because it's still DECC employees that run that stuff when it's not a UMD hockey game

East band never shows up when their school is on break.. at least not under the current AD

My 9 is for people with charter cable. I don't know where you are but wdio/wirt ( local channel 10 in Duluth ) always shows it. My 9 is also a NBC channel and they have nothing to do with section finals

I wont be in the Duluth area for the game anyways so I wont be able to watch channel 10. I was hoping it would be streamed online so I could watch it while Im away at college

Am clearly an East fan and was at the 7AA semi finals. These are clearly the two best teams in 7AA and either one would be a good representative at State. I have to say that in my biased opinion that East is the better team based on watching both teams recent games with Cloquet.

Poll has Rapids favored by an almost 2-1 margin. I find that fascinating given I think these teams are so closely matched. Must be a lot of GR supporters on the site? :)
