As an example: I would say in Edina versus Duluth East at the State Tourney, Edina would have the "home advantage." :roll: So, according to your logic, it's okay for metro teams to have home ice advantage in the state tourney, but it's not okay for an outstate team to have an advantage in the 7AA p...

Would you consider it home ice advantage for Elk River if the 7AA final was played at an arena in Otsego? Yes I would. I wouldn't. Home ice advantage is playing at the arena you normally play your home games at. Home advantage contitutes more than a picture of your mascot on the wall. Now pay atten...

Perfectly stated jancze5. And slyer yes, Rapids lost a bad game in the quarters, but who has more state titles between Rapids and Elk River? Who has more recently been to state? Irregardless of your pathetic whining, the 7AA semis and final are remaining at Amsoil Arena for the foreseeable future. ...

Re: The Real Season

I can't tell you how happy I am that summer hockey is over so we don't have to hear about that nonsense anymore! Bring on association hockey! Couldn't agree more, it's always a breath of fresh air to see homegrown players committed to their community and the kids they have grown up with working har...

The point system is odd: 6 points for a win 3 points for a tie 2 points for winning a period (total of 6 points) 1 point for a tied period 1 point for fewest penalties 1 point for a shut-out (I think that's it) You gotta just win your games, the 6 points is giant.

agree, the kid went a couple times and loved each time (except the first!). They even have a parent/skater week that we did once and was fantastic.
