Re: 2020-21 Early Rankings: SWEET SIXTEEN

FYI: Maple Grove’s top scorer, Kukkonen, will be back next year. Just junior this season. Broke leg in 7th game of season against Andover. Also, first time in I think past 3 seasons that there are no MG NTDP invites. That’s actually a good thing if you’re a MG high school fan. Youth program playing ...

Re: 3 Privates & EP walk into a pub

It’s costs $32,895 a year to attend high school at Blake. Do they give athletic scholarships?

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I don’t have a year of spare time to read through this full thread, so if this has already been noted, sorry.

Hermantown’s AA Bantam team has been ranked in top 3 all year and is in the state tourney next weekend. These guys are gonna play Class A in high school?!

Re: Could a Class A team win it all this year if we still had single class tourney?

Agree with all A teams people have mentioned. I think multiple A teams would at least compete for shot at state from their sections. Heck, Mahtomedi just beat HM last week, and Tartan beat Mahtomedi. WBL would be favorite in that section but multiple upsets, and current A team emerging from it, woul...

Re: Osseo/Maple Grove Bantam AA State Champs

Crazy thing is this year’s team, with the exception of one player, is completely different crop of kids than the ones who won AA Bantam title last year. Problem, high school-wise, is too many kids are leaving early for national team or juniors. Four very high end players who could have been on MG’s ...

Re: AA state tourney seeding

WBL, if they make it, could get seed over EP and Moorhead. Currently ranked higher. Tough call, though, on who is odd man out of those three. Duluth East beat WBL but had some questionable losses so likely won’t be seeded. But DE will be tough opening round opponent for whoever draws them.

Re: AA Rankings for 2/3/18

I agree that Maple Grove is trending in the wrong direction at the wrong time but can’t see them dropping to #9 behind WBL, EP and BSM considering the collective resumes. MG’s 4 losses are to Tonka, Andover (twice) and Blaine (they also beat Blaine). Their tie is to Edina. All MG’s blemishes are aga...

Re: Minnesota Hockey cut-off dates

The lengths parents will go to attempt to give their kids what they fantasize is an advantage in MN youth hockey amazes me. My birthday is in July and I started Kindergarten at age 6 back in the September 1 cut off days—meaning that I was a first year squirt in 3rd grade, first year peewee in 5th gr...

Re: Thoughts on 5AA

Maple Grove is favorite, with Blaine a close second. Champlin Park and Centennial battling for 3 and 4 seeds, and after that it doesn’t really matter. Would be very surprised if state tourney representative is not Maple Grove or Blaine. Centennial played both close, but doesn’t seem consistent enoug...

Re: What's not clicking for Chaska?

Is Chaska the most over-rated pre-season team in recent history? Hard to come up with another contender.

Re: 2018 elite league

I see a number of younger kids on rosters, but seems weird that not one of the to-be sophomores at Maple Grove this year who played on the state champion Osseo-Maple Grove Bantam AA team last year made the cut. That team was the most dominant AA/A Bantam team in recent memory. I know Faber left for ...
