Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

I am sure its been mentioned But since Rainier and crew started the Hermantown Thread in Jan of 2018 The Hawks have not won Class A 3 years running is it the new "Rainier Curse" on the Hawks 3/27 defense finally stopped carpetbombing the forum with inane comments. 3/28 ClassAGuy started a string of...

3 years running is it the new "Rainier Curse" on the Hawks
Yet they beat the AA champ this year. What a curse!😀

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Rainer, it’s clear and obvious that Hermantown is killing hockey in the north. Maybe, and a distant maybe, a miracle like 2019 Greenway will happen again but Hermantown has a clear advantage that no other team in the state has and it’s obvious and a disgrace to the game of hockey because it is kill...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

I dont have a favorite team... I love to see an underdog one of my favorite teams all time for the 03 Simley team that almost won it all. I like St Paul Johnson for its history. I like Outstate's with history Greenway was great two years ago... I was hoping or Eveleth this year. I think What Little...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

1. Yes I was at the Tourney I love high school hockey I go every year. Again what makes this a great state of hockey you can just like Hockey. 2. I like Class A... There was a time when you had to be on a waiting list to get AA tickets so when I went to St Paul I went to watch CLass A. Watching Poh...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Yep hard to believe I just liked seeing 4 really good teams play in front of 13,000 people and instead of 7,000 like the old days... Sorry I know I should be pissed because my town let the program go to crap so badly the best kids left to play for another range team that instead of whining beat the...

No dog in the fight just like Class A \ Hoping to see Hibbing figure it out and get good enough to be the best instead of whine about another team. I could go at you all day because your whining about if a team gets good move up I disagree with. I don't care if kids move in... They use to at Hibbin...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Wait a minute. So Hermantown made the c-chip game this year with a “drought” of two years prior. Let’s look at previous 11 years. Hermantown in c-chip game 9 out of 11 years. Yes the same team in the c-chip game every year9 out of 11. That is not what class A hockey was made for. I’ll say it again ...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Sorry but class AA will always be the big boy tourney, the tourney to show the best team in state, Class A will always be akin to kissing your cousin. Teams can make the class A and scream all they want from the top of the class A hill. Telling everyone who will listen tgat they are the best in the...

One I could care less about AA... That's always a sell-out because its the Big Boy Tournament and the real one. (The Class AA tournament is "the Big Boy tournament and the real one"? That's a strange sentiment from someone who calls themselves ClassAGuy. #-o ) Again Yes Mahtomedi and Hermantown hav...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Attendance continued With five schools that close to the X you don’t think that had no effect on attendance? Also with the dominance of the other three schools. Kids and families love to watch dominant teams. With Hermantown, SCC, and Warroad with great fan bases! You think that had no effect on at...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

The attendance argument made ZERO sense. Yes, you are right that 3 of the 4 in the Final 4 were regular teams that have been in it a lot. Thus their Fan Bases have always been there and not set records!! They set the Class A Record because the talent in the Final 4 was better and deeper. I am sorry...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

Hoping Hibbing can get back to glory! I'm not. I'm hoping small schools like HM will take a long look at their programs and realize they are ruining the Class A tournament by playing in AA. With some creative geographical section placement, we could have Hermantown, SCC, STA, BSM, HM, HF, and Blake...

Re: Class A Tourney w/o top 3 teams

When parity is the result of the best teams being removed from the competition. So you'd like to see STA and BSM move back to A? HM has even fewer students than Hermantown. I can't believe your Pioneers are screwing HS hockey fans out of a better A tournament by selfishly playing in AA. :D Hoping H...
