Two week late post: After attending every state tournament game this year, if Coach Andrews does feel it is time to move up to AA (and gets the necessary people to vote this way), I truly hope this year's team is the weakest for many years to come. The gap in size/speed/physical play/overall skill ...

Cloquet wins 7AA next year. And Greenway wins 7A. Wow. Greenway beats Hermantown and Cloquet beats Andover and Duluth East. Sounds good but those are very long shots. Long shots? I'd disagree. The bulk of Greenway's talent was sophs and juniors this season, and although they don't have a bumper ban...

Fun fact rainman/jeffy do some research on Orono. Ultra rich suburb of a real metro area with a population less than Hermantown and a school size almost double at about 1,000. Orono is on The N end if lake Minnetonka and has the highest per capital income of any town with a hockey program in Mn at ...

So we know Hermantown hadn't lost to a Class A team since the 2015 title game, and they hadn't lost in the quarters or semis of the A tourney since 2009, but, does anyone know the last time they lost by 5 or more goals?

The whining about Hermantown will stop but the whining won’t stop. People will find someone else to whine about. Who has a good A program? Mahtomedi maybe? EGF has some decent teams coming up so maybe them? It won’t stop. If one of those teams goes to 10 straight title games and three years without...

Maybe this will put the end to all the people whining about Hermantown? Whiners such as Lou Nanna or Mike McGraw, who have both said on past tourney broadcasts that Hermantown should be in AA? Or whiners like Hermantown's head coach, who recently said the program is ready to move to AA? Alexandria ...

Re: What in the world just happened to the Hermantown Hawks

I am sitting here in my living room trying figure out what I just saw. Did Alexandria simply put together a extra human effort against the Hawks juggernaut or did Hermantowm quit in the 3rd period after falling behind? I just don't think the Hawk players get up for these A tourney games anymore. Th...

I wonder how many State A championships it will take to avenge that loss? Hey, they still got to go to State! (albeit Class A) And I think Coach Andrews (frankly) has the balls to move Hermantown up to AA following next season...which I applaud! He does seem more willing, but it will be an uphill b...

So someone out there must know how many games it's been since Hermantown lost to an A team, and how long it's been since they lost a tourney game that wasn't the championship.

Talked to a former pro scout. He said that Clafton came up with a tremendous game plan that Greenway executed all night. They were aggressive on their forecheck and always had pressure on Hermantown as they tried to breakout. Hermantown was not able to make those long outlet passes that they like t...

Yea. I was so looking forward to seeing Greenway in the state tournament this year. Hermantown got 7A wrapped up for the next decade. Greenway returns most of their team next year. Perhaps they’ll even have an effective 3rd line. I expect them to challenge Hermantown again. Don’t give up just yet o...
