There was a fair amount of unhappiness with player and that they were generally forced to play at the "Historic Drake Arena". I absolutely enjoyed hea...

Re: 3 Privates & EP walk into a pub

Arguably only Sabre had a relatively easy path to Varsity at Edina and he has been a Blake kid since elementary school. I have heard that Dexheimer more or less was told that he had very little shot to play at all for the Varsity the rest of his HS career. He looked to move somewhere that he had a c...

Re: 2020 Section Tournament Scores Thread

It's "all about me", that's why. 100% accurate. I can't tell you how many mites in our association are playing at MN Made. Mites. To be fair, Mites is the best (and probably only good) time to do MN Made. Depends on the association. I am not familiar with ALL associations and their development but ...

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...

Re: Breck

I think that the Halverson sisters (8th & 12th and 57 regular season points) from Breck are EHA alumni as well. Also fairly sure that Pettygrove was a Hopkins school kid who played most or all of her youth for EHA so most likely was not gonna be able to play for EHS.

Re: Andover vs. Edina: Who will take home the trophy?

What a game. Andover was on the attack and aggressive the whole game. They dominated 5v5. Edina was excellent on the PP but other than that total domination by Andover. Wow. Congrats to Andover on a great strategy and tenacity to continue to fight from behind in that game. A great display of MN girl...

Re: Number of Edina Association players on the ice at BIG tomorrow

Edina is a great association and elite in developing talent but their numbers are significant on both the boys and girls side.

Question:

How many of those 10 skaters on teams other than Edina could/would have eventually made it to play Varsity?!?

Maple Grove should handle HM pretty easily as there is a pretty big separation between the top 4 seeds and the rest. Oops. By far the most entertaining game of the day, as the previous three were decided by 6, then 5, then 4 goal margins. In this one Hill-Murray has come back with two late second p...

Tonka looked really good. Having one of the best 2 lock down D in the state on the ice anytime that it matters is so big. They add so much defensive stability and each of them can be lethal offensively too. Their forwards put the puck on net and then look to be in places to screen, score gritty goal...

Agree with bodyup. Move Breck to 6AA this year and you would have had 5 teams that are definite favorites against seeds 5-8 in this years tourney. Lots of blowout games and at mostly every tourney on the girls side with quarterfinal games other than the 4-5 and occasional 3-6 game. Especially at the...

I hope Breck is proud of themselves tonight. What a disgrace. :roll: What can the players do in their situation? Their players are amazing. So talented and fun to watch. Not the players fault. Darned if you do and darned if you dont move to AA. Reminds me of this thread: http://www.ushsho.com/forum...

I don't have a dog in this fight, but as an outsider, looking at both teams today, I don't see any way that Moorehead isn't the #1 seed. Again, this is based on today, stuff can still change, but 15-3-1 (6-1-1 in section) is far better than 9-7-3 (6-0-1). I do not see a case for the Knights Have no...
