A teams playing AA at youth levels

My point was that class A is functioning as it is designed to. It was designed with enrollment as the parameters. Not resources. I’m not worried about that under the current system. I’m worried what it would look like under your system. What is your ideal system anyway? Somehow I have the feeling i...

Re: A Rankings for 1/19/20

4 of the top 6 teams in A play AA at youth levels. Awesome. :-& Which 4? Hermantown, St. Cloud, Orono, Mahtomedi OK, so you are including SCC in that group. Are all the players on SCC from St. Cloud? Or, are they from the area. I'm not picking on SCC for recruiting from the area, but they are not a...

With Troumbly and two defensemen out of the lineup, the Raiders needed extra time to shake previously winless Hibbing and were no match for Holy Family. I won't ding them too badly for now given the injury situ...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Why is it so difficult for people to realize that Hermantown does not have a magical potion or secret sauce, it is simply they have a good base program and then add a few of the areas top squirts, pee wees, bantams, and hs players every year. Simply put it is a numbers game. They take there base an...

Hermantown face-punching SCC 4-1 after 1. Hawks up 5-2 now. SCC punches back. 5-5. Appears to be a 5-5 tie. What a fantastic battle between the All-Stars from a metro area of 194,000 vs the All-Stars from a metro area of 278,000. I'm sure this is exactly what was envisioned when Class A was created....

Re: The Hermantown Thread

No chance they would be the favorite every year with just there own players. When that was so they were a easy out. They would be competitive but not the favorite every year. They wouldn't be AA competitive every year at youth levels either Without outside talent, Hermantown would still be top 3 in...

Tied 1-1 after 1. Shots 9-7 Raiders.
2-2 after 2. Shots 20-18 Raiders. Great game so far.
2-2, going to OT. Shots 29-28 Hibbing.
Raiders pull it out in OT. :cry:

Shots 33-30 Raiders. Great game, though.

Exceptional work Karl!!

Not to slight big Al Adams but wouldn't the 2017 line of MacGlauphlin-Hain-Miller have garnered more state wide interest?
If I recall correct they seemed to have received more state wide appeal. What does the hive think?
Agreed. Hain-Miller-McLaughlin was incredible.
