Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

Exiled One - does your plan also include some framework for how many teams an association should declare and what level they should declare them at? That, to me, is the root problem. As long as we continue to leave team declarations up to individual associations we will continue to have this kind of...

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

These were the final scores of the South Peewee B region..... 6-2 11-1 25-0 13-0 Fix this. Either some standard to classify teams or get rid of B state tournaments. The south had the worst of the lop-sided games. Others seemed to be metro vs out state or with the large out-state vs rural programs. ...

Re: Ideas that should be brought to the Minnesota Hockey Board

1) Regarding B level hockey: Recognize two levels of B, call them BB/B if you want to follow AA/A. Or, conversely, tell districts and associations to stop doing B1/B2 and only declare AA/A/B/C. 2) Regarding C level hockey: Create regional/state tourneys for Peewee and Bantam C. This might create a ...

TG is moving to AA in 2019-2020 - 100%. Talked to one of their coaches who indicated a number of kids are coming into TG next season based on the stipulation they move up to AA (next season)
Interesting. Any insight into which programs will possibly be losing kids?

Me too...but they’ve done it before. I simply think the northern 7AA teams have went to the well enough times at this point & came out on top...that a team like this years version of Andover is due to flip that script . Yes, like the Elks in '10....oops I meant Elks in '15, that was their year....u...

Re: Monday, 2/4 Duluth East at Cloquet

Everything you said about DE being tough at home in the playoffs is true & they very well may win 7AA in the end. But Andover is REALLY GOOD...so we shall see 😉 Not to mention that Duluth's arenas in the section playoffs aren't in Andover's head. Like some teams. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I would conside...

Another name no one knows in MN HS Hockey.
That's because he doesn't play MN HS Hockey (or maybe that's your subtle point). He plays Tier 1 hockey.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I guess there are buses leaving early and fanning out throughout the area every morning to pick up only good hockey players. They looked really hard and found 34 players to try out this year. I hear they somehow have this huge metropolitan area of 150000 people to choose from. Elk River had 36 kids...

Re: Minnesota Hockey cut-off dates

There were some comments that led me to believe that this may come up again, perhaps at the June meting. Out of curiosity, are there MN Hockey Board members that have June born kids?

You are right.
They should.
I will put this on the district director agenda.

Sent email to add it to the district director private meeting agenda.
We will see what happens there.
Thank you! And again, thanks for your time and dedication to this great sport and the kids in MN that play it!

Re: Minnesota Hockey cut-off dates

This. If the date is going to move, match the school grade date. It is the only logical date for a community based league that feeds into a high school league . I'm not sure how anybody could argue against that. This is one of the easy ones Elliott. Don't let them screw it up. So what date is that?...

Here's another question I would have: If MN Hockey is considering this in order to benefit the June born kids, what does MN Hockey have against the May born kids.
