From my understanding, seems the Hibbing players take right after their coaches and spend more time complaining about officiating then actually worrying about the game. At least that is what I hear from all the boys on the range and some out of Duluth. Too bad when talented teams can't just focus on...

Welcome home Coach Couture...What was it 14 penalties to 2. I checked the box score on Hockey Hub but I Falls must have been to embarrassed to post the penalties. Interesting, from what I heard from people at the game, the penalties went both ways including a late one in the third that resulted in ...

If kids don't want to sit and parents don't want little johhny or jill to sit for 2 minutes, teach your kids not to take dumb penalties. There are gonna be circumstances that call for kids to take a penalty as the 2:00 shorthanded is better than getting scored on, but for the rest of the dumb slashe...

I played through USA Hockey and have also been an official for 14 years. In my playing days, I never once remember receiving a rule book. I would guess that the coaches do, but from what I understand the coaches clinics are never about rules. It is kind of disturbing to think that the participants s...

As a Falls supporter, was very disappointed to hear about both Corrin and Christianson getting tossed. I'm not surprised, but it sucks having behavior like this represent our community.

Cannot believe no one has thrown out the Eveleth Hippodrome. Warm and not great ice, but an awsome feel to the building.

Goldy I hope your right but I'm not betting on it. Something is really wrong with the program. MG gets' canned, Stauber quits mid-season and the goalie tanks (not all his fault). Personally, I think Stauber leaving only helped Kangas. Most Gopher goaltenders do fine their first year until he starts...

Fire "the Don" and send that smug Hill packing. Bring in Dean Blais to build a team that will return the program to some respect and glory. I'll second this. All in favor.... Me!

If there is no girls team available, then by all means girls should get to join the boys.
