Re: BHS Hockey Podcast - Turning Points

interesting choice of MNHS schools OTC. Any reason why you picked those three? Mainly consistency. Schedules are done a little in advance so schools I’d choose would be good all the time. And variety. Suburban power like EP or Edina Private Metro school like H-M or BSM Northern school like H’town o...

Re: BHS Hockey Podcast - Turning Points

MSC won a few more Rhode Island titles, but was no longer competitive outside the state, and is now attempting the Shattuck hockey magnet model. Mount St. Charles is off to a good start with that. Brian Boucher is an alumnus of influence and the school is committed. The jumpstarted things by attrac...

I think in a perfect world, seedings for sections and state would be based on computer rankings like PageStat that put more weight on recent results.
I didn't realize PageStat did. Will read the methodology again.

2019-20

Pioneers went 3-5-2 over a month into mid-January and then played better than any other team the rest of the way en route to the state title.

Re: Transfers 2020-21

Interesting to see where TF lands. Could it be a return to his roots or off to a junior or AAA-based team. Only time will tell... :-k He's an '03 so if you are wondering if he winds up playing 18U in Pittsburgh that's an interesting thought. College-committed to a team in the Western half of the U....

Re: Playoff format thought???

My thought is they are kids not professionals and it is a non-starter to greatly increase the number of games or length of the season.

After all, it’s just a game.

Re: US WHL Draft

Can anybody name one kid that has been better off because they lived the Dub Life?

All I see are what one very knowledgeable guy privately calls “dead bodies” because it’s an accelerated rush to ECHL hockey.

I wish everyone well but do not see the appeal.

Re: Role of the Minnesota State High School League

There really aren’t that many of them in the grand scheme of things. Exactly. A few more than we hear about probably because it is only a problem when a team enjoys a little success! I'm all for a level playing field. Since people won't ever agree on what that looks like I see it as a fool's errand...
