Re: The Hermantown Thread

It’s unfortunate in 2020 boys high school hockey that attracting outside talent to open enroll into your hockey program is what makes a program successful year after year after year. With that in mind, I think more and more that Hermantown should stay in A. The real problem is that too many A progra...

Re: 7A - Thoughts

Would CEC even be in 7A for sure? There are already ten teams, and we've seen Hermantown, Proctor, and Duluth Marshall all go to 5A previously, and CEC is further south than all of them. Maybe CEC and DM both go to 5A, if they go down to A after next season. I guess that’s a possibility. It don’t m...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

My days of posting in the 7AA thread are behind me. Most, if not all, are very happy about this. All of my posts and efforts will be in 7A because that’s were our program belongs. High school and youth hockey. See you, losers 👍

Re: 7A - Thoughts

Going into next year, CEC would be the preseason 3rd or 4th best team in 7A. #-o What is wrong with you?

Re: 2020-21 Early Rankings: SWEET SIXTEEN

Kids have so many options these days. I guess I’m not surprised when boys leave early or transfer out anymore. With that being said, I’m starting to enjoy and appreciate girls high school hockey a lot. They don’t leave early and or transfer out nearly as often as boys hockey players do. I’m about th...

Kniven- have to imagine CG isnt coming back for his Sr year? Any truth to the rumor Walsh may be looking to play elsewhere? Well, CG is a great kid and a skilled hockey player with options. He’s playing in the all-star game this week, but I haven’t talked to him for a long time. I doubt he’s coming...

Re: 2020-21 Early Rankings: SWEET SIXTEEN

There seems to be a pretty strong correlation between how your top bantam team did 3 years ago with how they do as Juniors/Seniors. So looking at the Hub's 2017-18 rankings, Centennial is #4. And they've added talent since then. Have they lost kids off that roster, too? Cloquet is #7. Galatz and La...

Congrats on your team winning. You’re the first Hill fan that I’ve ever liked. When you told me that you were six rum and Coke’s in last night that sealed it for me. Coming into the tourney I had two goals. Hermantown and EP lose. I didn’t expect that Hill would be part of the equation but it is wh...

Who would be some of the candidates to replace the whiner. Maybe D1 coach or pro scout. Derek Plante maybe. Scotty P. Bruce Plante comes back.

Time for Andrews to get the axe? Three years as head coach, three colossal chokes. :oops:
I totally agree. He’s a whiner. This team needs a well respected grownup at its helm. Andrews can go back to coaching youth hockey.
