Since Hermantown doesn't have any seeds, shouldn't this thread be moved to the girls forum? Priceless!!!! epitome of what is wrong with Hermantown in A is stated in original post "at least two or maybe three teams in Class A that may have on outside chance." Congrats on hanging another banner, so i...

While the two losses for GR and DE tonight were not good, it's easy to forget that these kids are in school all day and then hop on a bus to play hockey. Pros are good at adjusting to that, but 15-17 year old kids probably aren't. That's why even though I don't like Rapids, I understand that someti...

I think it won't be long before the parents of the kids will not want them stigmatized by having them skate on a B team so it will become AAAA, AAA, AA and A will be the new house league level. ALL will get a trophy saying they were a champ at the A level of hockey in MN.

I would certainly very much respect such a step. A quick look at their roster an...

It's been rumored for over a week and Bruce Ciskie announced it on the radio this morning.
Wonder if he will be able to slow down or derail the rail line to Hermantown. Would be nice to see them have some success.

Re: Class A semifinal: SPA vs. Hermantown

Does SPA have a chance? Anything could happen on any given day so yes they do have a chance. The coach is going to have to channel Herb and give them The Speech that was first delivered in 1980 in order for them to though. I have watched both of them play a few times and the main difference is goin...

And not all kids go to the USHL. Basically what it boils down to is that there is more than one way to make it to where you want to go and in one guy's opinion his way is best.

Purely hypothetical but what chance do you guys think a combined SPA/Cathedral team would have going up against Hermantown on Friday?

Just thought this was an interesting perspective from Trent Klatt who, after all, was the head amateur scout for the Islanders.

I am not so naïve that I do not think there are kids making teams based on some 'political' move. And I am not so dumb that I know that the top players are making the A (AA) team. So the best of the B and the worst of the A can be exchanged. This ahs been true for all times and for all associations...
