Tough draw for Bemidji. Also DE would match up better against North rather than STA, but I still believe they will give them a good game. Hate to see East and Bemidji on the same side.

Edina is NO. 2, but it appears the hornets are on the easier side of the bracket.

EAST vs STAA!!
As a Hermantown fan I love this matchup and will not miss this game!!

Also nice to be able to watch both North teams in 1 session.

So you think DEast will beat Edina and make it to the Con Ship?

Hoping Edina takes Bemidji lightly and leaves the door open for an upset.

If the Hounds can beat ER, they can beat STA.

Oh for heaven's sake, let's just seed 7 & 8 into the same semifinal. Heck, let's go all the way and seed them both into the final.

Maybe then we won't have to hear this nostalgic nonsense every year.

Life's such a drag when you live in the past.

Careful what you wish for, there is no guarantee your Pioneers will always be on top. Nostalgia may be all you have one day.

East got one heck of a lucky draw. They could actually beat STA. I want to say they won't win again... But they keep proving me wrong.

Well I'm pretty excited about the draw, should be an exciting rematch with a hot Hounds squad.

Don't envy LVN, they got a pretty brutal draw.

My thoughts on the biggest winners and losers with these pairings: the biggest winners are Duluth East for not having to play either Edina or Lakeville in the first round ,and also the same for Blaine by virtue of them being seeded. I think the biggest loser may be Lakeville who will have to face Jacob Olsen and Company on the blue line in the first round,even though they did beat them earlier in the seasoN

For me its less nastalgia and more about wanting a true STATE TOURNEMENT , rather than what we have now which is a metro tourney plus a few outsiders for fun. Wanting the two in oposite brackets is just my need for more interesting matchups.
