My understanding is that William Whitelaw made the SSM prep roster, and he was the only 05 to make it.
Looks like all September SSM Elite League games have been cancelled or postponed.

Re: Turning Points

Here are my thoughts on seeding: Einstein said, "Not everything that can be counted counts; not everything that counts can be counted." There is a desire on the part of some to have one gold standard metric, a magic formula that "get's it right" every time, without any bias. That doesn't exist, & n...

Re: Scott Perunovich

I started following High School hockey in the early 90s and the best high school hockey player I have ever seen is Mike Crowley. When I saw Scott Perunovich in the elite league I thought he came close.

Re: BHS Hockey Podcast - Turning Points

Pauly actually started in 1990, FWIW, so he slightly predates that trend, and BSM was up and down during his first several years. Fun discussion. There's a section in the book "Blades of Glory" (a sort of Friday Night Lights for MN HS hockey about 2000-2001 Jefferson, for those not in the know) tha...

Re: BHS Hockey Podcast - Turning Points

I don’t remember the year but Holy Angels had the fastest team I have ever seen in the year they lost to Apple Valley in the District semis at Braemer.

Re: Turning Points

Greg Trebil going from the Coach of the Jefferson Bantam A team to Head Coach at Holy Angels in 1996 marked the beginning of the end for Jefferson.

I'll be at Mariucci instead with 100 other people. But, better than watching two games where the public doesn't care to even pick a side. Gonna be a snoozefest relative to most Friday nights.
I have been to a few Blake games this year and they are far from snooze fests.

Re: Andover St. Thomas Academy

When I saw Andover early in the year Wolff and Kaiser played together as they did last season. It allowed Wolff to be a bigger factor rushing the puck and getting up in the attack. They could have used that tonight.

Re: Mankato East vs St. Cloud Cathedral

Re: 6AA/2AA Section Final Coverage

I also thought the penalty shot call in overtime was correct in the Blake/Benilde game and admire the refs for having the guts to make that call in that situation. Clear scoring opportunity taken away from the Blake shooter as he was bearhugged by the Benilde defender in the offensive zone after th...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I still say, it is either all right or all wrong to ‘recruit’ players in high school. Hermantown is doing what SCC and Greenway and others do (or have done). Either they are all losers or none of them are. Where do you draw the line? You do realize that every student in every desk at SCC is “recrui...

Re: Play-offs Wednesday 2/26/2020

With two smaller private schools in game 1 and a ton of other games tonight - I don't think it will be that packed - even though it is a great match-up. Also - attendance the last 3-4 years hasn't been what it was 7-8+ years ago. There used to me a line a mile long - now you can walk right up and g...

Considering EP’s slow starts in the playoffs so far, Chaska will need to score early and often if they want a shot of winning. Bigger ice sheet favors EP.
Last year it was EP 7 - Chaska 3 at Braemar in the semis. I wouldn't be surprised by a repeat.

I think tickets go on sale on Saturday morning. If my memory serves me correctly last year Section 2 tickets went on sale 1 hour before game time at Braemar. I don't think BIG did the same.
