Re: BEST POST I HAVE EVER SEEN ON THIS FORUM

Ely varsity is not exactly a superstar mark on the resume. May or may not make it big. Give the kiddo time to develop. 7AA nor 7A is not going to get excited until he proves himself. He will have plenty of time. Thats how Htown is.... seniors lead, jrs follow, soph sit down and shut up ...and fresh...

I dont think the Hawks have ever moved a player up early.....and they have had plenty that could have. I would be shocked if Pat Andrews changes that tradition. I agree - but has a kid ever played Varsity at one school, then back to Bantams at another? And a "down" year is what Hawk faithful is say...

Re: Duluth East- back to 7AA dominance?

With the news of Hain, McLaughlin, and Stejkal all not returning for Rapids, does this mean the East era is back? East is almost returning all of their skaters and were within a ringed post of going to state. Who knows what could have happened there since Rapids won it all. I think this team might ...

Absolutely! Nobody knows more about recruiting than a Hermantown guy. You're living it every day.
So do we make them an honorary private school then? If so they have to be ranked 2nd right behind HF based on their recruiting prowess.

As an official I do hope common sense plays into this decision when MN Hockey votes on this. Teams will still Ice the puck. This just means we will have more ref's chasing the puck and more faceoff's. Most of us have been around this game long enough to know coaches / parents / players would prefer...

Well for a Denfeld guy you sure seem to have a lot of really strong opinions about Cloquet stuff that you either don't know very much about but for some reason feel the need to opine on or are trying to play dumb and push an agenda for some reason.

Wow. Things are really bad here in Cloquet. It's going to be what it's going to be.

It seems it will be that way again in 4 years when the current regime comes and goe...

Re: Hermantown arena

Is/are there plans for a new arena in Hermantown within the next 5-10 years ? Would the boys ever combine with Proctor like the girls? The girls in A so the boys could stay in A. Just curious...... I think a co-op between Denfeld and Proctor is way more likely and would be a good thing if you look ...

At this point, all I think we can confirm is that Langenbrunner is out; Esse has not officially resigned or been driven out. At this point. From the start, I was skeptical that Langenbrunner and Esse would stay on rosy terms through Langenbrunner's time as a Cloquet parent--though it has sure blown...

Re: Proposed new MSHL transfer rule

Has anyone heard of the proposed new MSHL rule that would allow students to transfer to a new school (receiver) if the current school (sender) signs off on the transfer much like what happens in the NCAA transfers. The student would be eligible to play varsity sports without sitting out a year. I h...

To find a weakness in a 45 save, 3-2 OT win for a goalie is silly. Also might be silly to say Worth was the best player in that game. If I was Trent, I'd play Stejskal the rest of the way. You ride the hot hand. If he gives up two quick ones on Thursday, put in Holum. Great problem to have. Yep, ju...
