Re: Old Lake Conference Divisions

Marginally off topic, but I have been attempting to recall the members of the Lake Conference divisions during the North/South and Blue/Red days, and it seems like this knowledge has been lost to Father Time. In particular, the North and South almost certainly are imbalanced. Here is what I have fr...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Crazy: I am happy for Alberta, but I think you miss my point. Minnesota doesn't have any laws laying out the guidelines. Nor do most of these states or Providences. They are executive orders. The one state that has legally challenged the authority of the Governor, Wisconsin, is completely open beca...

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 d...

Re: 7AA FINALS

I don’t see how anyone could/should be criticized by not driving 2+ hours each way on a school night and I would guess if it was the other way around (two northern teams having to travel the same distance to play in the metro) the attendance would be far smaller as well. This is a difference in the...

Re: Pridictability of Class AA - state

Also, blaming the MSHSL has some merit but but the League gives far too much leeway to the coaches associations. A small minority of coaches, largely from 7A schools, pushed the 2 class hockey through. People from NE Minnesota complaining irk me. Their coaches put the 2 class system as we know it i...
