Re: covid and MH

Do any of the smart research people out there know the answer to this question? Approximately 44,000 or 45,000 people die in Minnesota every year from all causes This would mean approximately 37,000 would die in the first 10 months in the year Does anyone know how many Minnesotans actually died thr...

Re: YHH Podcast: 10/25/20

Thanks for the details on official roster deadlines. That does give teams a bit more flexibility, though yes, JV cuts will of course still happen before any games are played. We didn't want to dive too deep into rankings or section previews, given the amount of players whose status is still up in th...

Re: Best PageStat Era Class AA Champions

There we go, thanks! I expected it to be low since that was something of a surprise run by the Spuds, and sure enough. I have rosters for every Tourney team the late 00s on and most of the 90s, but I have this weird hole in the early 00s where the data is incomplete. Here is a great resource, with ...

I have number of D-I players for each state champion from 1987-2015. Haven't pulled numbers on more recent teams since of their players are still in juniors or even HS. Of course, not all D-I players are the same, and some also had great players who didn't play D-I hockey for whatever reason, but it...

Re: No State Tournament at the X this Spring....

Can't wait for the 2021 Minnesota High School Hockey Culminating Event! Such lovely bureaucracy-speak. That said, I wouldn't completely write off the possibility of a state tournament, even if it has little attendance. Budgeting for no tournaments is probably a wise move on the MSHSL's part as they ...

Re: Pine City to Mississippi 8

Good move for the Dragons. I guess the Snake River does make its way to the St. Croix, which eventually hooks up with the Mississippi, so it sort of makes sense geographically.

2010 Tourney in Retrospect

For the past couple years I've been writing up looks back at the State Tournament that took place ten years prior to the current year. It's interesting to look back on these teams with some added distance to see if the talent they had actually had matched our perceptions at the time, and how those r...

My only contribution to this conversation will be a general observation about how the Duluth area seems to magnify this issue (if it really is an issue) in a way other places don't. In the Metro, people don't necessarily love it, but there's an understanding that player movement is a pretty common t...

Re: Greatest Games That Never Were

Fun story, ESPG. Anoka was the top seed in the metro bracket of Region 2 that year, and they did beat East by a goal in their regular season meeting, so they were almost certainly the favorites there. Interestingly enough, I was a resident of Anoka at that time, though I was also one, so I think I c...
