Let's see philosophical Eveleth's or North Shore's of the world even break into the top 20 in A even before you can have that discussion. That is unless your ok with sending a team from the North down for a participation trophy. Eveleth will be in the top 20 soon. Maybe even top 10 in a couple years.

Hermantown needed ot to beat Luverne in 2017. HT is an slso ran in AA.
A team that beat the eventual AA champs the last two years would be an also ran in AA?

I hope your post was sarcasm.

keep in mind...most the schools that "opt" up are very near AA size. Heck even Mahtomedi is within 50 kids of having to opt up. We are barely half AA size. And yes, that is even WITH open enrollment. Your Pee Wee AA team is ranked #1, Bantam AA is top 10 & you’re trying to STILL RATIONALIZE playing...

Is there any truth to Duluth Marshall building dorms on campus. All their usual recruits going to Hermantown an East. I personally think they don’t have much future without dorms.

I talked to some of my peeps tonight and it sounds like Proctor is getting ready to build a Powerhouse now that they have the shiny brand new Arena. If they keep kids home, Hermantown will be an afterthought, most of their good players have been Proctor kids. It would be interesting to see the resu...

Would a dynasty like 90's Jefferson be possible today? I believe all six of their defenseman on the 93 team went on to play D1--wouldn't at least the bottom two have transferred nowadays to get more playing time elsewhere?

A quick google search makes it seem like Oman played in East youth hockey and Klatt is from Lakeville North.

Virginia looked good against a team that recently tied DE. (Transitive property alert!) I have to believe the Blue Devils are a top ten team.

Re: Time to panic with Hermantown's slow start?

The Hawks have already lost 3 games this year. Offense is scoring but the defense looks a little suspect(judging by the scores). Is this just early season jitters or is this a warning sign that perhaps the Hawks dominace has left them and a gradual decline is beginning? Don't worry, once the playof...
