Re: 2021-22 Coaching Openings

Say the privates/Tonka/open enrollment weren't involved....what would be the percentage breakdown of which CCHA kids would go to Chaska & which would go to Chanhassen, if it was done by the book? My understanding was the majority of kids were Chaska kids....does Chanhassen have a chance in the futur...

Re: The Gentry Academy Thread

Very interesting thread.

One question I have: if it is not a private school and is indeed a charter school, why are there not more people going there? That seems like it would be a giant demand to attend.....

Re: Class A QF - Dodge County vs Hermantown

I wish Hermantown would move to AA as do most people because I feel they can compete at the AA level.... But I'm enjoying the "this is a very boring A tournament" talk now that the Hawks have left the dance. Sometimes there's a "be careful what you wish for" feeling. Having a villain isn't always th...

Re: Official State seedings

A little surprised, but I think you can make an argument for how it went:

Personally, I think Hill Murray got the shortest end of the random draw. Wayzata will be a nasty quarterfinal game.

Friday night has spectacular potential....

Re: Section Games Wednesday 3-24-21

I didn't join in on the viewing of 2AA until it was 3-1 in the 2nd. Kind of have the same view as others. I don't remember Tonka having a super great scoring chance the whole time I watched; EP was coming at them. But I also agree that the penalties on Tonka in the 3rd were very iffy at best, especi...

Re: something fun

It's crazy how everyone forgets to add the 2010 Minnetonka team to these lists. 9 D1 guys who played 4 years of college hockey, 5 of them who wore letters at their respective schools. I guess I didn't put '10 Tonka in because they lost twice to the Edina team that beat them in the final. I didn't p...

Lots of scoring, the emotion of the waved off goal. First A game I remember where they opened ...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

That is interesting about Edina's goalies. I was born in the late 80's so started following Edina hockey in the mid-90's. I remember thinking Jeff Hall was a super hero, but I was 8 years old. I don't remember how good he actually was. Above average goalie, but turned into Jesus Christ for a brief ...

Re: Edina 2010's All-Decade Team

Good list. Only change I think I'd make is having Connor Girard over Willie Benjamin. That's totally just a nitpick though. Interesting thing about Edina is when is the last time they've produced a goalie? Matt Bertram? Steve Carroll? Larry Thayer? We're going back 40-50 years at this point. That de...

I think you may have one more year of EP. Then a year, maybe 2 drop off, and then another strong few years, before a few down years, before a few up years again. Of course, this is all dependent on which brothers play college hockey with which EP alumni or which kids' dads need to be closer to the a...
