Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

I think there will be hockey. Whether there will be any spectators allowed to watch in the building is another question. I think there will be limits on crowd sizes until a vaccine is in place.

Re: 2020-21 Early Rankings: SWEET SIXTEEN

EP will probably slide down a bit next year. They lose Steeves and J. Mittelstadt, who had 99 regular season points between them. That’s tough to replace. Jensen, Langefels, Wilhite, Jones, Rudrud… They return: Batchelder, Holt, Mittelstadt, Langenbrunner, Blake, Brown, Luloff, Langefels. That's a ...

Re: AA Championship: Hill Murray v Eden Prairie

Hill will want to slow the game down as opposed to getting into a track meet with EP. My initial thoughts were EP will blow Hill out so bad that 45 TV will air Two Broke Girls in the 3rd period, but I think this will end up being a one or two goal game. It’s been a nutty season, anything can happen.

It is, we have sent the info to many outlets. MSHSL is simply not responding and STA Athletic Director is walking the company line.
Interesting. Thanks! MSHSL has to do their own investigating before they can comment.

Re: Out State Recruitment -- STA this year and going forward

On the last YHH podcast, Tony mentioned at the beginning of the show about a team in the tournament with potential ineligible player issues, but didn't name the team. I'm speculating that team is STA based on the information in the original post and the "no comment" moment at the press conference. I...

Which top line has the better game tonight? Steeves and J. Mittelstadt for EP, or Miller and Best for Blake - that's what it will come down to in this one.

Re: Blake vs Maple Grove

I’ll take Blake. Miller and Best will be too much for Maple Grove to handle. Miller has to be the Mr. Hockey frontrunner for next year. Have seen a handful of Blake games this year, either live or streaming. That kid is a lot of fun to watch.

Re: Eden Prairie vs Lakeville South

I could see this being like last year - close game, possibly going to OT. EP hasn’t played a complete game yet in the playoffs. They started off slow in the section quarters and semis against Shakopee and Minnetonka respectively, and then let off the gas against Chaska in the section finals and Chas...

Re: Official Seeds Are Out!

Class AA: Queue the conspiracy theorists! It sure seems like they seeded all the way 1 thru 8 with Andover drawing STA. You could do some nitpicking but nothing too much to argue about with the seeds as I see it. Can we get anything close to what EP and South gave us last season? Hill and Moorhead ...

Re: Official Seeds Are Out!

Looks like the coaches are trusting the last LPH poll to do their seeding. Andover got about as bad of a draw as you can get as the 1 seed. STA has been on a roll in the 2nd half of the season! The LPH poll is based on coaches vote and they didn’t see enough from this past week to make any major mo...

Re: Seeding for State

Count me as a 1 vs. 8 conspiracy theorist up until last year when Eden Prairie drew Lakeville South. Many saw Lakeville South as the 8 seed last year and EP wasn't the top seed. Chalk it up to the EP "benefit of the doubt" that Karl eluded to in a previous post in this thread.

Re: Play-offs Wednesday 2/26/2020

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.

Re: Section 6AA Seeding Discussion

I’m a little surprised Cretin isn’t the 2 seed. QRF favors Cretin and PS favors BSM. Cretin won the head to head. Being the 2 vs. 3 game is on neutral ice, it’s a matter of who’s home and away on the scoreboard. The MSHSL site has the 2 vs. 3 semi as the late game - should be a barn burner!

1. Prior Lake
2. Eden Prairie
3. Minnetonka
4. Chaska
5. Holy Family
6. Chanhassen

Barring any upsets, EP and Tonka will get their rubber match noon at Braemar on semifinal Saturday.
