Yes. My take is 2000's shouldn't be playing bantams like the rest of the world. The age disparity at bantams translates into a size and strength disparity. If Minnesota Hockey doesn't want 2000 playing high school yet that is fine. Then make a U15 division for that age and then have bantam majors b...

Hermantown has gutted the Twig program. Many of the Twig parents (Pike Lake & Saginaw area) wrestle with the difficult decision of moving schools by the fourth grade in fear that their kid will get left behind in hockey. Yes, this is not recruiting, but sad that as a society we have become so obses...

I think the "recruiting" bit is a little old. Many of the top public schools recruit. They just use a different name for it and call it "open enrollment" Look inside Edina, Lakeville North, Grand Rapids. How many of those kids played on their towns squirt teams growing up? I'm sure many did but I'm...

After everything I've read about Hermantown the last 2-3 years and all of the compelling reasons why they are not a Class A team, I think what struck me the most was what someone wrote last week. High School playoffs is the longest stretch of Class A opponents that these kids play in their entire Ho...

Cloquet will be the team to beat in 7AA next year. You heard it here first.

Hermantown should be good in the JV Bracket. They return a lot of firepower with Sandelin and the two Proctor kids.

I don't have a problem with that. I guess we'll see if the MSHSL does but I would be surprised if they did. He is on the team and served his suspension. Classy move by Klatt if you ask me. The suspension is not yet served. x # of games or two weeks of, whichever is longer. Will sit beginning of fal...

It would be interesting to see what the A tournament would look like if schools had to play in their classification by enrollment?

Well, it finally happened. Lou Nanne just called for Hermantown to move up to AA on the Dan Barreiro show. He said Hermantown and Breck are as good as the AA tourney teams and should both be in AA, and that would make the AA and A tournaments better. It was just a matter of time, and now we have th...

IMO, Before and After is the way to go. Best of both worlds. Tufte and Mattson took this route and couldn't be happier with their decisions. No kid will ever regret staying but many will regret leaving. You only get one shot at being a kid.

So what would be a proper amount of AA teams Breck is allowed to play? St. Paul Academy will be the next one that doesn't belong, even though this is their first trip. It would be awesome if the MSHSL stuck it to Providence Academy & made them play Minnetonka in round 1 of 2AA because they can get ...

Not buying it. Here are their PageStat ratings since 2010: 22,10,11,22, and 4 this year. This team can compete in AA, easily. They've won 4 titles in A and have been to state 8 out of the last 9 years. They routinely play one of if not the toughest schedule in Class A, yet their record since 2009 i...

The TV timeouts allow this to be closer then it would be in a regular game. Beavers can then skate their top 2 lines more and not lose out to GR depth. GR still wins by 3. If Grand Rapids plays the Beavers they probably won't stand a chance. If Grand Rapids plays the Lumberjacks, I still don't like...
