Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

This is true, but on the flip side one thing to consider is the bizarre rule in the USHL that each team needs at least three underage (03 and 04 this year) players on their roster at all times. Thanks. I knew there was some rule but not sure exactly how many. Yes, will have an effect. Still, we jus...

3 isn’t a ton,
The ripple effects will be huge. Springfield Blues also announced they are taking the season off. So 3 NAHL & 2 USHL teams for a total of over 100 players not on no-tuition teams. Since HS players are the younger ones it is those kids at risk for not sticking.

Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

Hearing a 50+/-point scorer who I saw at the July summer high school festival is considering an early departure to a midwest Nahl team .

Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

One school of thought says it makes sense for players to leave HS teams for Junior hockey because the MSHSL could be quick to pull the trigger on the HS season. I think this is the majority viewpoint. I've been on the other side saying Junior leagues may not be able to operate without fans. USHL & N...

Re: Summer Scrimnages

I know Duluth East is planning on heading to the Edina Summerfest July 17-18-19. Sounds like Varsity teams will play at St. Louis Park and JV at Edina. Yes, this event is next weekend. I've seen a schedule but didn't post because I don't know if it is final and ready to be released. Blake, Wayzata,...

the Player to be Named Later

I've got more information on Fechko to the Hornets. This closes out the Hankinson deal from 2016 when Edina GM Terwilliger moved the forward for future considerations. Rahn had 4 years to send back a "Grade I" player (defined as Elite Leaguer, Natty Camp kid, or Div I verbal) with at least two years...

But I'm telling you that this is bigger and more fun than if they actually played. Once they drop that puck, the Value of this whole thing disappears!

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Stang, short version is that no other Class A program looks like Hermantown. I was raised on Sesame Street. One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just isn't right. Used to be two, then St. Thomas opted up. An amazing shell game sifting through a hunnit plus other schools to ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Thank the almighty that we live in a country that allows people responsible for scheduling a high school activity to do as they see fit. Just not Randolph and East? They can schedule however they see fit. If petty tribalism is more important than spirited competition - the very essence of HS sports...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

It’s weird anyone is worried about “a Class A team” when the only one that is a) in close proximity to a usually good HS program, and b) has an overwhelming consensus agreeing they are in no way representative of Class A is Hermantown. Warroad plays Roseau Cathedral plays St. Cloud East Grand Forks ...

Since 2008 Edina & Eden Prairie have played in the championship game 5 times each. Since the schools are in proximity, it would be strange if their hockey teams refused to play each other.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Good heavens the absurdity is relentless. 1. Mahtomedi has had a few nice teams but is far from a storied program. The revisionist history you apply is ludicrous. They won state. Once. This season. Did you or anyone else know it was coming? No. Don’t pretend otherwise. 2. Edina High is 31 miles from...

Why does EP schedule Brainerd, Cloquet and East when they could get such a great game locally with the Class A champs?
E.P.'s schedule the past few seasons has included 8 of the past 15 Class A champions. How far behind do you need to be before you'll quit?

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Not hard to figure out. East & Hermantown have been consistently top teams and are about 10 miles apart. It would be a competitive game. What's strange is the great lengths people go to trying to justify why they don't play. Name another natural geographic rivalry that doesn't happen. Roseau plays W...
