If he wasn't a senior I'd totally move so my son could attend Mike Randolph High School. And this was awhile ago but isnt there a street near the soccer fields in Proctor named "Pionk?" And when you move your son to MRHS you will be able to rest assured that he will be safe as there will never be a...

Why not? I am going to go out on a bit of a limb here as I assume that DM has a middle school so they have grades 4 through 12 or something like that. If a kid wants to go to DM for what ever reason why should he not be able to play hockey with his class mates? I can't imagine that a kid who goes to...

Saw them play in the preseason scrimmages and have to confess to telling the guy next to me that anger management was going to be a major issue for the coaching staff this year. I think that Denfeld could (based on talent) give either Hermantown or Duluth Marshall a game this year in the play offs b...

Re: Maple Grove

What is going on in Maple Grove... They were the preseason favorite for the section and they have been a disaster so far! 11 goals allowed? I thought they were supposed to have an incredible tandem of goalies?!?! I am not trying to call anyone out in particular but what gives here? I have never see...

On the other hand the current system does make a transfer possible but work. It stops those kids from jumping from team to team to get the best possible deal. Sure, there are cheaters but there will always be. Maybe what they need to do is to keep the current rules in place and enforce them. Actuall...

Any idiot can pick the top 25. It's my contention that MN could put together 2 teams at all HP National levels. This league should be able to showcase all the hidden gems that are bountiful in the state of hockey. It would allow more coach's kids, board member's kids, donor's kids and kids whose mo...

Marshall had a slim chance of beating Hermantown this year and slim just walked out the door. It's as simple as that. No way would they be the favorites in 7A with or without those players. I think you are right. This weekend will give us a better look at what they have and do not have. Right now g...

What would happen if they formed a co-op with another school? Seems like that would be the way to go, find another school that wants into the Tier 1 scene and form a co-op with them and get their education element taken care of. Would be good for the other school also as they would get kids who want...

I agree with you about most of what you have posted but do have a couple of questions about both East and GR. I watched a lot of North hockey this season, youth and HS. I would not want to count out East due to their Bantam performance. I think that Randolph will have something to say about that as ...

Re: Minnesota State High School League

Hockey is a year-round sport..pretty much everywhere BUT Minnesota. The powers that be have handcuffed the players in the system for the good of the system. There's a reason players with last names like Nanne, Guentzel, Lucia did not play their Senior year in Minnesota high school hockey... But can...

TEO, it is your list and your thread but I think those kids who are leaving after only playing a year of JV should be added. In a lot of ways losing them is even scarier since if a kid is good enough to leave for juniors as an 11th grader he would be good enough (without other factors added in) to p...

You need to figure out what you want from AAA hockey. There are basically 2 kinds of programs that are out there. The first kind is if your kid just likes hockey and want to play some summer hockey. They don't practice, they have tryouts but don't really cut anybody whose check clears the bank and e...

It is called the Elite D league yet I don't see any D (assuming D means developmental) going on. No coaching, no practices, sloppy play..... etc. No D just $$$$$$.

HS hockey in MN is on track to be the same as it is in the rest of the country. The kids who are good enough will leave for the 50+ game seasons at Juniors and the kids who are not good enough to play juniors will play high school hockey. Association hockey is the next victim when the AAA hockey tea...
