Re: Darkhorse teams for 2020-2021

I wouldn't discount them, they had two 1 goal games last year (one in OT) and they only lose 1 senior of any significance, this group should be best of last 3 years. MG should return same amount of junior class as well, wouldn't bet the house on TG, Blaine, or Champlin.

Re: Mr. Hockey 2020

Gonna guess Gleason... maybe Biondi, some big wins for CDH without a huge supporting class like Steeves, Kaiser, etc. Kaiser should win Reed Larson easy this year... All good no doubt... Cretin is not all Gleason. I think Biondi wins it. Hermantown has more support for Biondi than Cretin does for G...

Re: Games Tuesday 1-28-20

Just look around at a lot of these teams... they play their "guys" all game against weak opponents to pump stats... I see both sides, you'll be on the receiving end of a @$$ kicking and sometimes you're on the receiving end... coaches are 100% responsible for who they put out... I mean does Elk rove...

Worst use of talent in HS hockey...

Whether it be bad systems, poor use of talent, etc...

Who do you think is under-utilizing their talent or miss-using it... half way through... any thoughts?

Re: Minnesota Article on Eden Prairie

i lost a lot of respect for the boys high school hockey team at EP when CM played there. They were up in Cloquet playing us. I stand right above the visiting team when they are lined up for the national anthem. They were joking, snickering and spitting on the ice during the anthem. I couldn’t belie...

Re: Might be an ugly season...

I've said it before..Nowadays parents/kids are so wrapped up in Skill they forget that if you can't compete you probably won't last long at the next level. The problem is refs, (ie MN Hockey/USA Hockey), is slowly taking the physical side of this sport out of the game. I see way to many whistles wh...

Re: Might be an ugly season...

So some of the refs there were also from MN... and guessing the refs dont only do HS games but youth as well. So.. you should be able to extrapolate from there.. even the Jr. coaches and scouts said they are seeing the same issues in and out of MN and at all levels... also... title was... MIGHT be a...

Might be an ugly season...

Watched over a half dozen games last weekend... officiating is all grossly over the place. Issues I saw, any hit where a player was hit hard, and cleanly, was penalized, especially if the other team or crowd "ohhh and ahh". They would give a rough, elbow or interference. Most puck carriers hit were ...
