Re: The Hermantown Thread

So if Hermantown opts up do you feel like they should stay in A? I am not sure that the other city teams that I think you are referencing (Cathedral and Mahtomedi, or really any city team left in A) will be good enough to convince them that they can't win it all. Is there another team in A that is s...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Your replies are hard to pick out of the last post, so I pasted them into this one with responses. 7TC: Did I say I was quoting you? What I was saying is that it seems like they are happy with the class A experience. I have never met anyone that is ashamed of their state championships because they ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Funny thing is I never hear Warroad or EGF people telling me they wish they were AA or had been. And if everyone agreeed with you I don’t know why they would be A still. Is somebody getting in the way? It's obvious now that what I say and what your hear are two very different things. I said I've ne...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I am just telling you how it is. People don’t see it the way you do. They don’t see it as an A and B tournament like you are trying to make it. And as far as EGF I am aware, but the road to the section final is far different, so is the state tournament itself and they know that. If you haven’t heard...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

The other one that comes to mind is Hermantown can’t even beat teams like Alexandria and Greenway. Do we really think they could win 7AA or a AA championship? Remember just cherry pick a result from the playoffs and ignore everything else.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I have considered that they may win. But it is a much tougher road and I guarantee if you ask them if they want to be a shoe in for the semi finals at the class A tournament and potentially win it all or risk being beat in sections by a couple of other teams that will be top 10 AA they will chose th...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I am not referencing Hermantown as I think they should want to move up. But you are always quick to draw the line, on several programs, not just Hermantown. Which I think is easy to say when it isn't you, your kid, your program. If they were to move up and get beat in sections there will be a lot of...

Rain what are your thoughts on what Warroad should do? They are going to be absolutely stacked in a couple of years. Their banta...

A thought related to WM's post above. The average nursing home stay is a little over 2 years. With over 2/3 of the deaths in MN occurring in nursing homes it has me doing a bit of wondering. If we see approx 2000 excess deaths this year (with most of those in nursing homes) after this population has...

Mandatory bubble mask with Bauer insert (or other similar brand) and 11 person rosters. I have seen smaller communities play with rosters like this for years (as a bonus nobody complains about ice time). 5 people on the bench at a time should provide adequate spacing and the face shields should have...

Re: covid and MH

A more accurate statement might be the needs of the elderly (who can vote) are outweighing the needs of the young (who in a lot of cases can’t). Something like a third of teens and a shocking 63% of 18-24 year olds are reportedly depressed? Both are several multiples of the normal rates. Another 24%...

Re: covid and MH

The stay at home order ended in May in Minnesota. Why is that being brought up? It was suggested that the governor will or needs to enact new restrictions, shut downs, etc because we are running out of ICU beds. When it was pointed out that we aren't really running out of beds WOM suggested that it...

Re: covid and MH

Although it's fair to point out the number of ICU beds occupied by Covid as that provides proper context to that specific issue, and yes, the initial lockdowns were done in part to keep hospital systems from being overwhelmed, as well as build up PPE and ICU beds, the main reason you "lock down" is...

Exactly. 98% of ICU beds in the metro are full, 92% state wide. Our local hospital has cancelled all elective surgeries and currently has 60+ nurses out. Our 7-12 grades will be going distance learning on the 12th through the Thanksgiving break and then reevaluating (K-6 remains in person, for now)...

Re: MSHSL Oct 1st Meeting (Boys Hockey Season Fate)

Not sure that any of this makes sense but I guess this is the world that we live in now. It is hard to see how a reduction of 7 games factors into the bigger picture. Kids will still be playing hockey on the days that they would have had a game (practice, shiny, etc). I guess it limits spread to kid...
