Least 3 times the city teams would have there fans and finally be a real advantage when they had the one seed you think east fans travel doubtful
I feel for elk river and Andover. If the state would not let east or any teams
Practice at all I wouldn't care but they do and it makes a difference I played there it's different ice and boards are different, east sets plays to use the boards it's dumb big advantage.
I don't understand your poetry.

I'm thinking Duluth Marshall and East are gonna play a crazy 6-6 type game and someone wins it in the first OT. I'll take Marshall and Stauber with the GWG.

Elks vs Andover could honestly be a repeat of offensive outburst. The Elks sniping that heralded FL goalie and chasing him off the ice makes me think Elky is gonna get it done. 7-4 Elks.
Good point. Thank you.

I will take Marshall over East 5-3 with an EN. Marshall is practicing at Amsoil to you know. :lol:

Andover over Elks 3-2 in OT

I’ll go DE 5 DM 3 (with an empty net goal) & Andover 4 ER 3 (in OT) the curse continues 😉

And for acloseshavers sake we'll say that Elk River will be up 3-0 with 10 min left in the game. :lol:

The amsoil does not get that for the A no way no how for a single game.
Terribly inaccurate. The atmosphere at least for the AA semi-finals was awesome last year. Elk River brought a lot of fans for the early game against Rapids, the arena was about 75% full, lots of fans in the upper level. I think last year for the first year that Semifinal Saturday really caught on with fans in terms of making it a full day event like at state where you can watch 4 games in the same day. Great video of the atmosphere for the GR/ER game last year (sorry acloseshaver) https://youtu.be/A9cOKoiPLAI?t=5m10s

At the end of the day, the contract is with Amsoil Arena and it is staying there.
What have you been smoking? I’ve been in attendance at every section semifinal that’s been held at Amsoil. It’s typically a snoozefest and as far as last year, it was maybe half full...look at the YouTube video you posted. It’s a great venue no doubt but the atmosphere is only good on final night. I’m also in total agreement with others that it is not fair for the Duluth teams to be playing at home every year. Bemidji or St. Cloud would be good neutral sites.
It was electric last year for both AA games. I wasn't at the A games, but Amsoil Arena is the 2nd best hockey arena in the state end of discussion. Bemidji has a great rink, St. Cloud is okay. But as was stated by other users many times, the city of Duluth is far greater than Bemidji or St. Cloud. Compared to Duluth those two cities are so boring it makes death something to look forward to. And Amsoil is a neutral site. There isn't a greyhound logo at center ice.
The Rapids fan base is always electric, especially when playing East. Who cares what amenities the city has to offer. People are there to support their team and watch the games. I’m pretty sure the majority could care less about anything other than the games.

It’s friendly banter. Though I think you meant “lack of” social life. I live in a world of goldfish

You are probably right. Andover ahead of schedule by a year and East had this year circled. It would be nice to see a competitive game though.

You got that right! Throttled Rapids and embarrassed Duluth Marshall. Let’s see how Andover works it. A ton of respect for Coach Manney and his boys.
